I have decided to start a list, Comprising of Serious Social Media Guys not only to help with my research, but also for the companies to know that Social Media Professionals exist in real and it’s a serious Job. It would help the companies who are not into serious social media activities to hire Social Media Personnel (Strategist, manager, Consultant whatever :-)). There’s also a long list of freelancers who can be hired on project basis.

The list will be an Index of Social Media Professionals on an ongoing process.  I will be constantly updating the list on regular basis to keep it Genuine & Maintain the quality.  The list will mostly include the Indians or the Professionals working in India/ For India.

The requirements to get listed:

Some Roles are: Social Media Expert, Social Media Master, Social Media Manager, Social Media Consultant, Social Media Strategist . . and many more to go..

I have come across many persons in personal and networking too, who have plans, ideas, ambitions to work for social media. But they are clueless about the Roles, Work Profile etc. 

New to India, Lack of Indian Role Models etc are reasons to mention a few. But, if you want to position yourself, want to be a role model, you should know, search and utilise the unique Skill and experiance which you can use in the desired profile.

Before you decide the social media role, note that – only two things can keep you on the top:

1. Be Original, Write original, New, Unique.

Points which define your social media role. 

1. Industry: Which Industry do you belong? Eg. Media, FMCG, Finance, Aviation, Govt., NGO etc.
