The B's of Social Content

The B's of Social Content

Where do you start when it comes to creating great and amazing social content? It's easy to run off and start creating but it might be best to stop and think about what you're about to do. 

By reflecting on the six B's of creating social content, you will have a better chance at producing strong and successful content that really engaged your audience. the six B's are:

Be Yourself

Be original and be authentic. Don't pretend to be someone you're not or act to be something other than exactly what you are. Savvy audiences can smell fake-ness a mile away.

Be Strategic

Have a plan. Have an editorial calendar and measures for success.

Be Relevant

Function in a real-time environment and be relevant and aware with what is happening in the world.

Be Consistent

Posting today but taking a month off is deterrent to your audience. Get into a rhythm and stick to it.

Be Engaged

Be an active participant. And this just doesn't mean consistent posting. This means posting, interacting, helping. Everything.

Be Patient

It takes time to build an audience and gather a momentum. Also manage expectations
