“This is [NAME], our social media wizard!”

“Could you work your social media magic?”

“Can you just throw this on social?”

“We have this marketing campaign we’ve developed, and now we need you to post it on social media.”

“So you just play around on Facebook all day, right?”

“Make this go viral!”
