3 Social Media Content Ideas

When I conduct a session one of the things I always focus on is content ideas, I constantly  find people getting stuck with what to post and my job is to be the fly on the wall and give them some inspiration, I often use themes to base content plans around as I feel this helps give some clear direction.

Here are 3 examples of things you could be posting from my own Instagram account. Follow me here for lots more content inspiration and social media tips –  https://www.instagram.com/thoughtsmarketinglifestyle/ 

  1. ABOUT YOURSELF – whether your a brand or an individual, this is something that helps people to learn more about you!

1:1 Coaching, Young Living

Valerie Sheldon approached me to help her build a strategy that would support her business growth.

We started by going through some all important questions aimed at helping her to create better content for the 2 main channels she focusses on Facebook and Instagram. After going through best practice including do’s and don’ts, we then looked at inspiration and I gave her lots of techniques to help her engage better with her audience as well as ways in which she could be using stories more effectively. We spoke about content planning and finished the session looking  at some really good examples I picked out for her that would inspire her, people in the industry that are doing a really good job!

Here is what she said about the session:

‘I had a session with Renu last month. I was doing social media everyday, but not using it to the whole advantage (since I didn’t know what I was doing!)

Renu was very professional, and had researched my business, and had comparisons for me to look at. She told me where I could improve, and since doing her course, I’ve had 2 strangers become clients, and my following is going up rapidly everyday. (I used to get lots of follow/unfollows, and now it’s genuine!)
Definitely worth having a session with her.’

How you should be using LinkedIn to grow your business

I can’t tell you how important it is to have an updated LinkedIn profile. So many individuals and small businesses I work with don’t always realise how they can use this channel to grow their business and if that’s you, here are a few ways you can use LinkedIn to grow your business:

  • Write and share articles – If you want your connections to see you as an expert in your area. You can use LinkedIn to showcase your experience by writing valuable articles.
  • Create a great summary – The summary is the first thing your connections will see. This is your main selling tool. Writing a killer summary about yourself will help to sell your skills and allow people to learn more about your business.
  • Join groups – Groups are a great place to share those articles you are writing as well as an opportunity to contribute to conversations relevant to your industry.
  • Link your Blog Posts – If your regularly writing blog posts and posting these on your website, in the experience section, you have the option to link projects. This is a great way to encourage people to see what you are doing.

1:1 Coaching: Coffee Ethic, Leicester

Tasneem from ethical coffee house Coffee Ethic approached me because she was looking for content inspiration, although she had a good knowledge of Facebook, she wanted more guidance on how to target the relevant audience and raise the business’s profile on both Facebook and Instagram, a channel that she was still very much getting the grips of. Her main reason for having this session was to promote the vegan teas she hosts on a monthly basis.

My role was very much to show her how she could be projecting her brand better. We looked at targeted advertising, content inspiration and strategy. We spoke about how to use instagram stories to grow the business and how she could use Facebook Groups to increase awareness. We also discussed creative ways she could grow the brand offline. Finally, I  gave her a tutorial on how to use IGTV, Instagrams take on You Tube. Growing a brand takes dedication but I understand how time consuming it can also be and isn’t always a priority, so I also showed her a content plan template which she could use to help organise her posts and save time. You can see Tasneem’s testimonial here.
