Our recent conversations with business owners who are trying to manage their own social media pages have led us to realize that for many people, coming up with content ideas can be difficult. More often than not, business owners end up posting solely about new products or promotions because they're not sure what else to talk about. But being too repetitive without sharing fresh content can cause your audience to lose interest.
It's important to have new, quality content that keeps your users engaged. Posts should be able to attract them and get your audience excited to see what you'll be posting about next. This makes them more likely to engage with your posts, building brand love over time which will make them quality customers.
The good news is that there are many other things you can share about with your audience. We've listed 60 ideas below to help you overcome this challenge.
