I love working as a social media marketing consultant for a lot of different reasons. I get to choose my own schedule, work with hundreds of great companies, and best of all, I am constantly learning new things. One of the reasons that I can focus on my job is because of the city that I love. Whether I need to relax or put my nose to the grindstone, San Francisco is the place to be!
Here are just 7 of the things I love about san Francisco:
- Its Coffee Shops
San Francisco is a city full of coffee shops, and as a consultant I get to visit a lot of them (when I meet all those prospective San Francisco social media clients!). I’m sure that if I went to a new coffee shop every day, it would be years before my first repeat visit. I visit coffee shops for many reasons, and whether it’s for a change of scenery for my marketing work, or just to get out and meet some new people, I love every moment of it.
- Golden Gate Park
Another one of my favorite places to visit as a social media marketer is the Golden Gate Park. The Golden Gate Park is over 3 miles long and it is one of the largest urban parks in the world. I can spend hours walking its many paths and visiting the museums and show venues it holds. You can even bring your mobile phone, and “tweet” to the birds!
- Countless Museums
San Francisco is on the leading edge of technology, and it has hundreds of museums as well. I never lack for museums to visit when I want to learn something new. One of my favorite museums, the De Young museum, is located in the Golden Gate Park just behind the California Academy of Science. It’s a great way to relax after a long day of building Social Media Marketing campaigns.
- Technology Hotspot
Today San Francisco is the top city listed for technology startups. Because of this there is always something to do in my field. One weekend I could be attending an AdWords seminar, and the next I can catch a session on Twitter optimization.
- Easy To Access Libraries
I love visiting the libraries here in San Francisco. As long as I take my laptop, I can work from anywhere, and some of my most productive work sessions are done from a study room in the San Francisco Public Library. There’s something about sitting in a library, surrounded by centuries of knowledge, that makes me feel ready for anything.
- Stores Are Open 24 Hours A Day
As a marketing and tech expert in San Francisco, it’s easy to lose track of time. Luckily, I’m not alone in this regard, and I can always find stores open with what I need no matter the time of day. So even if my laptop dies right before a 5 am skype meeting, I won’t need to worry.
- Strong Wi-Fi Connections
One of the most important things for me is having a good internet connection. I can go anywhere provided there is strong wi-fi, and san Francisco has never let me down yet.
Now whether this makes San Francisco the best place for a marketing expert to live I can’t say for sure, but it is definitely the best place for this one!
