Content Idea #16: Post Quotes.
A great way to fill your editorial calendar is to have a designated days to post a quote. These don’t have to be business related, but should reflect your brand’s beliefs. You can also find an industry leader, entrepreneur, or business guru you admire and follow his or her blog. Post the snippets and quotes you think will be most meaningful to your customers. There are several sites on the web that specialize in quotes on various themes. For instance, Pinterest is a social media site focused on images, so it’s the perfect place to grab inspiring or complementary quotes for your social media posts. Furthermore, if your business is based on visuals, create a Pinterest account yourself and post pictures of your products – this is a simple way to get more traffic back to your website.
Take Action: Write a post now quoting an industry leader or simply post an inspirational or motivational quote that is based on your brand's beliefs.
