25 post ideas to jazz up your social media feed
Consistency is paramount when managing social media accounts. It’s essential to show up regularly, whether it is daily, twice or thrice a week or 5 days a week, and make your presence known. At some point, though, you can feel blocked and not know what to post anymore! That’s when this list will come handy.
Here are 25 useful post ideas that you can use to create content for social media and keep your handles active throughout the month.
1. Introduce yourself
If you haven’t done it already, right now is the best time! Talk about your brand—your vision, your goals, how the brand came about and how it is going. The more your audience knows about the brand, the more connected they feel with your content.
2. Provide tips and tricks
People will appreciate any useful information you provide. Give the audience tidbits, helpful tips or references to learn more about a specific topic. Additionally, encourage them to share your posts and even save these tips for later.
