What do I post on Social Media? The most common question people ask when they get started building their business online. It can seem quite overwhelming when you first start out.
How much do I promote my business? What do I share? Do I share my own content? What do people like?
The answer is: You have to mix it up.
Starting with the form of content: Articles, Images, Video, etc…
Provide a mix of media. Since social media isn’t a one size fits all. You likely have a variety of different fans and who each have their own learning styles and preferences and will appeal to different types of media.
For example: Visual people will appeal to images and video. Auditory learners appeal to video and audio.
So, in order to cater to everyone, it’s best to mix it up!

Now, what types of content do I share?
This is where people overthink the process. It doesn’t have to be complicated because there is truly an unlimited amount of content you can share.
Just to name a few, you can post expert advice, articles, images, videos, quotes, stories…and of course: BUSINESS PROMOTIONS.
Yes, it’s A-OK to post about your business! Some business owners fear personal promotions as they think they will lose fans, whereas others promote their businesses far too often.
Remember to post with a balance.
Go with the 80/20 Rule. 80% of the time you post valuable content for your fans. 20% of the time you promote your business.
If you lose fans when you promote your business, that’s a good thing.
If they’re not interested in your product or service, you’re better off without them. This makes room for people who are truly interested in what you’re offering and you’re more likely to engage with them and do business with them. Social media is a tool for your to create a community -AND- market your business.
