That is what you call a robbery.
Any research I was planning on doing for today’s edition also just flew out the window.
BUT… here at Social Files we have a rule
The rule is…
You’re required to leave each edition with VALUE (like, real value)
So I figured I’ll go ahead and highlight 5 social media professionals that I’ve been learning a lot from.
You should follow them. You’ll be a better SMM for it. 👇
5 accounts every SMM needs to follow
1) Alex Garcia
Alex is the CMO at The Kollective (the best gym in Austin) and he writes Marketing Examined — one of my favorite marketing newsletters out there.
I want to highlight his Twitter though (where he’s amassed over 150K followers).
If I were a social media manager, I’d not only read his threads — but also study how he structures his posts and threads for maximum reach and engagement.
(He’s also just the homie so go follow him)
2) Sam Wells
Sam is the social media manager over at C4, a brand in the health and fitness space.
C4 has an insane community on IG, Twitter, TikTok, etc — and Sam is the man behind all of it.
He posts regular content on LinkedIn sharing his learnings and lessons from awesome work.
I enjoy reading all of his content. You will too.
3) Codi Dantu-Johnson
I appreciate Codi’s straightforward approach when it comes to assessing and speaking on social media content + trends.
Super talented marketer.
And she’s a great follow on Twitter if you want to be a more skilled social media pro.
4) Ish Verduzco
Ish has grown the @a16zcrypto account from 0 -> 33.1K followers in 6 months.
He reveals all of his secrets on Twitter.
His threads are bookmark-worthy material that will make you a better marketer. Also just a dope human.
5) Matt Navarra
Matt’s an OG.
If you’e in social media marketing… you need to be following him
(Odds are you’ve already seen him around)
I really enjoyed this article of his that he shared with me. You will, too.
Ok. That’s all I’ve got for you today.
Kept it quick, as promised 🤝
