What Do I Post On Social Media?

…This is the number one question people ask when it comes to social media marketing.

The interesting thing here is that there’s really an endless amount of ideas for you to use when it comes to posting on social media.

Before you skip this and jump down to the list, here are a few tips to get the most impact out of these ideas:

1. Make it RELEVANT for your audience.

For Example:

If you choose to share something from your bucket list…

Can you relate it back to your business?

Can you add an open-ended question so it sparks people to engage?

2. Talk TO your audience, dont talk AT them. This is social media. People are looking for stories and posts that they connect with. If you’re not wording posts socially, you close the door for engagement.

For Example:

DONT DO THIS: I read a quote this morning, liked it, and wanted to share it with you.

DO THIS: Have you ever read a quote and thought, “Wow, I really needed to hear that?” Well, I found one this morning that was so perfect, I had to pass it on to you. It’s a difference in the way you talk with people. I promise you’ll see a difference in how people respond when you word things just a little differently.

3. EVERYTHING you post should ALWAYS support your weekly, monthly, annual marketing, and business goals.

Post to connect.

– Post to learn more about your audience.

– Post to start a conversation.

– Post to get leads.

– Post to drive traffic.

– Post to build your business.

The more you do this, the faster you reach your goals.
