Keep content for those times when you need something to post

Sometimes you will have more content than you know what to do with. Other times you will be scratching your head for something to post. Try and keep a bank of images for those times when you need something in a hurry. Perhaps it’s something unusual that happened at work, maybe it’s a photo you took that might entertain or engage. Take pictures of finished products, nice feedback, examples of a job well done and anything else relevant to your business. You never know when they might come in handy.

Ask clients for their content

A great way to collect content to use that will engage an audience. Ask your clients to post content with them wearing or using your products. On Instagram they can tag you – you can then repost the image making sure you credit them in the post. For Facebook they can either tag you or post to your wall. Either way you can then repost or share the content.

Don’t leave it to the office junior

No-one knows your business like you do. Either hire a professional that knows what to post and when to maximise engagement or post yourself. You know your business better than anyone and posting yourself will ensure that your page connects better with your target audience.
