Finding Awesome Content To Post On Social Media

I admit: Sometimes, I hit a “social media writer’s block,” where I struggle to find something to post on my social media accounts.

The good news is that you can keep your “information well” always full, which helps you bust through the writer’s block so you can post engaging content for your tribe.

I have found four awesome ways to constantly come up with social media content, and if you implement all four, you will never run out of ideas for your social media accounts again!

#1: Set up Google Alerts

Google Alerts help you monitor interesting, newsworthy content from the Internet. First, set up Google Alerts on keywords related to your industry. Then, once a day, you’ll get an email digest of news articles that contained your keywords. From there, you can review the articles and post the ones you like to your social media accounts.

Remember, when posting an article, make sure to tell your audience why you are posting it. Compel them to read it too!

#2: Follow key influencers and share their content

Your industry has key influencers – whether it is a person, company or organization. Be sure to follow their social media accounts. Often, they will post cool content that your audience would like (it’s almost like the influencers are doing the work for you!). Then, you can share their posts or tweets on your social media accounts. Be sure to attribute where you found the content.

#3: Plan questions in advance

Asking questions is a great way to engage with your fans and build a tribe of loyal followers. While it’s 100% okay to ask spontaneous questions, it’s also a good idea to make up a list of questions in advance – something you can refer to on the fly.

Here’s an exercise I like to teach in my workshops: Make a list of the topics you would talk about at an in-person networking event. Then, turn those topics into questions to post on social media. When you complete this exercise, you’ll have great conversational questions that you can use at any time.

#4: Start a post idea board on Pinterest

Pinterest is a great resource for social media posts. Here, you can find fabulous photos, quotes and articles to share with your audience. One way to keep track of this great content is to create a board on Pinterest. It can be a secret board that only you see, or you can make it public to share with your Pinterest followers.

Once you use content from this pin board, consider pinning it somewhere else and deleting it from your idea board. That way, you can keep track of what you have used.
