Keeping things fresh and new on social media can be a challenge, especially when you’re posting new content several times a day / week. If you need some inspiration to get those creative juices flowing, Social Media Examiner has compiled a list of 26 Creative Ways to publish social media posts. They cover everything from inspirational quotes and promos, to visual content and questions for your audience.
We’d recommend trying these new ideas out one at a time, to see what works best for your audience. If you find a particular style of post gets a lot of engagement and reach, try creating a similar post the following week to see if it has the same response. If your content doesn’t get a great response, try posting at a different time of day or day of the week to see if things improve before dismissing this type of post for good. As social media posts can have a fairly short life span, don’t be afraid to re-post something that’s worked well for you in the past (assuming the topic / content is still relevant).
Social media is all about testing, testing and more testing, so find out what resonates best with your audience. Just remember, depending on the style of the post, your definition of success may also be different (eg, a promo will most likely have a different result than a quote or joke).
