It is easy to exhaust yourself wondering over what content to produce on Social Media for your business. Content creation takes time, getting those ideas may take even longer.

Content is king and at the end of the day, it is best to vary your content. It will keep your audience engaged and wanting more. Besides, it adds that unpredictability to your social media profile. Here are the types of content you can create for your business on different social media platforms -

  • Educational Content - This includes free resources, how-to's, infographics, articles, guides, FAQs, case studies, tips, and tricks, etc. People love this type of content and it gets the most saves or shares.

  • Inspirational Content - This can include quotes, inspiring stories, or any other form of content that motivates or inspires the audience. Talk about your own story and more people will be able to relate due to the personal touch.

  • Interactive Content - Allow the audience to interact with your content and share their opinions. This can be in the form of quizzes, polls, games, infographics, contests, questions, ask me anything, caption this, etc.

  • Connecting Content - This type of content helps the audience to connect with your business. This can be in the form of behind the scenes, employee features, company stories, client stories, business shout-outs, etc.

  • Humorous Content - Everyone loves humor. Be sure to include some form of humor in the form of memes, gifs, funny captions, or your unique take on trends. Adding a funny side helps you get more eyes on your content.

  • User-generated Content - As a business, you can always share content that your customers create. This also allows other potential customers to view other users' experiences which builds trust and ultimately drives sales.

  • Promotional Content - This content is what you need for your business to survive. You need to talk about your products and services, promotions, offers, discounts, freebies, client testimonials, etc.
