Social Bakers studied three months’ worth of Facebook content from major brands and found that top brands average one Facebook post per day. The same source found that to get top engagement on Twitter, the magic number is three Tweets per day. Add in Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube...that's a ton of posts!

A major challenge we've seen for business owners is finding fresh social media content to post on a daily basis. To help with this plight, we decided to put together a list of 13 post ideas (with examples) that you can personalize and use right away!

In order to help businesses across the country (and the world), we write a new blog every week. We like to focus on helping small business owners better understand the latest online marketing trends, and how to reach their potential online. Some of the blogs have gotten quite a bit of attention, so we wanted to share our 5 most popular blog posts. 

As small business owners, we know it's important to get involved in social media. There is so much to know and so little time. This blog series is dedicated to giving you simple, straight-forward best practices for your business' social media presence. This week we'll start with one of our favorites...Facebook. 

  • Get personal. On your Facebook page, use REAL images of your team members and company headquarters. Your audience wants to feel like their interacting with the real people behind the brand.
  • Use the favored post format. Facebook users do not like to see links within your post. To avoid this, all you have to do is paste the link you're sharing into your content box. Then let the related photo, title & excerpt appear. Finally, simply delete the link. The supporting content will stay and will be clickable to the user. Here is an example of an ideal Facebook post.
