What do I post?

One thing I forgot to mention in the video is well what should I post. I like to post thoughtful quotes because that is in my personality. You might want to think about your brand and tailor your post according to your personality.

  • So for instance if you want to be a thought leader post inspiration, post things to help educate, train people about your company.
  • If your kind of the jokes-ster of the crowd post something funny or a video.
  • You can also post a question. But don’t post a hard question that makes people have to think really hard, no one will answer.
  • Re-purpose your posts. Old posts or other people’s content definitely schedule in time to help other people get traffic too.
  • Be a resource or DJ of information.

Schedule

What is the best time to post? It depends on your audience. You can use a cool new tool edge ranker to find out what your status is and how people are engaging with you the most. I would say I do one post in the morning and the best time I think is between 3-5pm when people get off of work. Those are some of the times people engage with me and my posts.
