How a Social Media Manager Made the Top 10 Leaderboard for Expert Secrets

What do Tony Robbins, Grant Cardone, and I (a social media manager) have in common?

Well, it’s NOT that we all make millions - I certainly haven’t yet.

It’s not that we all drive exotic cars - I don’t drive a Lambo.

And it’s definitely not having massive list sizes - my list is under 5000 at the time of writing this!

However, the three of us were all recently honored on the Top Ten list for Russell Brunson’s recent book launch. Everyone in the English speaking world saw the launch of this book, Expert Secrets.

So how did a Social Media Manager end up on a list with power-players?

Social Media Managers have super-powers.

I’m 100% serious.

SMMs have the ability to grow massive followings that are engaged, excited to purchase your offers, and loyal - sharing your products with friends and family. They can make content go viral, grow your list, and make your brand the homecoming queen within your industry.

They call me the mother of social media - because I work with and mentor all of the top social media managers...

So I asked the top social media managers to share exactly WHY social media managers are so powerful - and what they can do for anyone’s brand (and if you want to work with one of them - you can fill out an application HERE to be matched up with one!).
