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.

Put Your Focus Where You Want Your Marketing To Succeed

I was on Pinterest the other day and clicked through to a blog post about how a blogger tripled traffic to her site. Bloggers, especially ones who do it for a hobby, are extremely resourceful about increasing traffic, so I wanted to read what this woman suggested. One of her tips jumped out at me. I’m paraphrasing, but it goes something like this:

If you want to have more traffic to your blog, you need to blog more.

Pow! That one hit me right between my eyes.

It’s so simple, yet so true, right?

Honestly, this is something I should have discerned on my own (ahem), but sometimes, you need a smart blogger to remind you of one of your core teaching lessons:

→ Put your focus on where you want your marketing to succeed.

Infusing Your Personality Into Your Online Marketing

Online marketing gives entrepreneurs a unique opportunity to share their personalities with a larger audience. When you share some aspects of your personal life with your online audience, it allows them to get to know you better, which leads to trust (which leads to sales).

Many entrepreneurs, though, are not sure which aspects of their personality and personal lives to show. No one wants to throw back the curtain completely on her personal life.

So, how do you balance sharing your personal interests – enough for people to get to know you – while maintaining some level of privacy?

Here are 7 ideas that you can consider to help you show your personality through your online marketing without completely sacrificing your privacy: Continue reading
