In today’s socially driven consumer-base, Social Media and content marketing have become a vital point of marketing. Most business owners have heard “you HAVE to be on social media.” While that’s true, the key to success in social media isn’t only that you use it — it’s how you use it.
As a small business owner, you may struggle to find the time to manage your social media marketing as well as think of amazing ideas for your social media content; such as what to post and when to post it.
We are sharing a series of engaging post ideas to help you get a jump-start on post creation for social media to engage your fans and followers - and ultimately, boost sales and profits.
These ideas will ignite your creativity and ultimately increase your followers, build your credibility, keep existing customers coming back, and gain new customers.
Content Idea #14: Post About Events.
If you host a celebration or participate in a community event, make sure you post photos or a write up on what it was like to be there on your social media profiles. You can also promote the event leading up to the big day. If you are having an event that you want to invite your social media fans to, Facebook has an “Event” feature that allows you to create an event on Facebook and invite a select group or everyone. These invitations can reach thousands of people in minutes. They also include an RSVP feature that makes it easy for invitees to accept or decline the invitation. Creating events on Facebook can be an effective, low-cost way to market your business event.
Take Action: Write a post now & share photos about an upcoming event or a past event you hosted or participated in.
