What Sort of Content Should I Be Posting on Social Media

posting on social media

posting on social mediaWe are often asked “What sort of content should I be posting on social media?”
If you want to win new clients and satisfy your existing ones, it’s essential to post content that will add value to your audience.
This is a critical point.
You’re not just posting to post. Rather you’re trying to provide your audience with high-value information that will help them live their best life possible.
Each post should be helpful in some way to your audience.

Your posts should help your audience:
ƒ Think about something in a new way
ƒ Take action like they never have
ƒ Laugh or smile
ƒ Learn something valuable

Again, this goes back to knowing your audience.
If you know your audience well, you know what they will find most valuable. If you don’t know your audience, you’ll struggle to post things that resonate with them.

Consider posting things like:
ƒ Inspirational quotes
ƒ Tips and tactics
ƒ Tutorial videos
ƒ Live videos
ƒ Pictures that will motivate your audience
ƒ And more

For example, let’s say that you’re a health and wellness coach. You could post:
ƒ Inspirational quotes about being healthy
ƒ Tips and tactics for eating healthier
ƒ A tutorial video on how to perform a particular exercise
ƒ A live video in which you answer questions from your audience
ƒ Pictures of people performing challenging exercises

When creating your content calendar and posting on social media, constantly ask yourself the following question:
Is this adding value to my audience?
If it is, then post it. If you don’t think it will add much value to your audience, then don’t post it.

If you’re not sure which types of content add the most value to your audience, try experimenting with different formats. You might find that videos perform better than
photos, or that your audience really likes tutorials and tips. Test out a variety of formats and see which ones resonate most with your audience.
You may be thinking: I don’t have time to constantly be posting!

The good news is that you don’t have to be on all the different social media platforms all day every day.
Using a tool like Buffer or Hootsuite, you can actually schedule out weeks, or even months, of posts in advance.
Consider using a social media calendar in conjunction with one of these tools.
By scheduling a significant number of social media posts in advance, you can save yourself hours of time.
