8 months ago
How many times have you heard someone say that they have written all their social content for the next month and you have literally put your head in your hands?

Social Media Content Ideas

- National Holidays and Dates
- Family Events
- Work Specific things

Writing your content for social media
Make the first three seconds count, this is all you have to impress someone, so your pictures and headline need to be super snappy.
You need a good hook – the first 11 words are seen on Instagram, use this well to entice your followers to read more.
Tell your story – make it interesting, think about your ideal client and write it for them. How does what you have to say link back to your reader. Think ‘so what?’ as you read it back and make sure that you are clear in why you are writing this story.
Add a call to action – what do you want them to do next. Answer a question in the comments, DM you or leave a smiley face emoji if they agree with your statement. Be clear – no one has time to work out what it is you want them to do.
Give this a go and see how you get on. If you need any help email firstname.lastname@example.org
