Social media content ideas are those magic triggers that excite social media users to click through and take action. You could have your own list of things to post on social media but new content ideas are always welcome.
This post is exactly what you need to increase social media engagement with the best content ideas.
So, what are some things to post on social media?
Even though every social media platform has it’s own glued audience but these social media content ideas can be used everywhere to capture attention and make users stick to your content.
Most online businesses, and blogs use facebook, Instagram and twitter marketing strategies to build an audience and attract potential customers.
But, here are few things to know before posting content on social media.
These are few no-brainer tactics to read your own target audience so that your message gets across easily and has a solid engaging impact.
You need an engaged audience, not just dull-dead followers.
- Have a deep understanding of your social media audience. Their demographics, and interests. These two key characteristics define your audience well and also, helps to draft your best social media content.
- Get familiar with different content formats and ideas to test out
- Learn to read social media analytics to draft the best message for your followers using different social media tools.
- Focus on creativity, and engaging content to pique the audience’s interest
Schedule social media content in advance
By planning social media content in advance does not only ease your workload but also delivers content at the right time. Furthermore, it saves so much time being on every platform.
I use Tailwind to schedule Pinterest pins and tailwind tribes.
Similarly, if you are most active on Instagram then you can use Tailwind for Instagram too. It is being used to hide Instagram hashtags, plan Instagram content, and finding best hashtags using tailwind’s feature.
There are other tools like Hootsuite, Buffer and even, PromoRepublic to schedule social media content in advance.
If you want to create quotes and custom social media templates then take a look at PromoRepublic’s feature. It’s a wonderful tool with an option to create quotes and easily schedule to any platform you want.
Designing Social Media Graphics And Quotes
According to Hubspot, “When a Facebook post has images, it earns about 2.3x more engagement than it would if it had no images”
And, that’s the reason most marketers and bloggers are using visuals and videos in their social media content strategy.
“80% of marketing professionals are currently using visual assets in their social media marketing”
With the help of amazing online tools, creating pretty and attractive graphics is now super easy. There are pre-made templates available. You can simply edit the text and post them.
I personally use Canva pro to design graphics. And, it’s totally worth spending your money. With thousands of elements, gorgeous templates, unique stock images, and premium fonts, Canva is a favorite tool!
Here’s what canva looks like.
However, Invideo is a great option for creating quick videos.
Now, here are some creative social media post ideas to post.
