Is your schedule packed full of social media content?
Some experts schedule their entire social media calendar months in advance, while others like wing it day-to-day.
Either way, there is one thing all the social pros have in common…
They are pumping out lots of consistent content.
So we need content and lots of it if we want to make a lasting impression on social media.
Where do we find it all?
A big time-sucker for most social media managers comes from finding relevant, interesting pieces of content to fill up their social media calendar.
Not everything you find is solid gold, and wading your way through the noise to find thought-provoking content is tough.
That’s why I put together 21 of the top places you can find or create content to share on your social networks.
Create your own content
Creating your own content will ensure that you always have something new to share with your followers.
Although it’s more time consuming, creating content from scratch gives you more control over the message.
From photo to video, here are the places that make crafting new content easy.
1. Company blog
A company blog is a solid place to turn for social media content.
You have complete control over the topic you choose to write about, and when you share a link with your followers you’re driving potential customers back to your own site instead of someone else’s.
If you don’t have a blog to source content from you should consider starting one.
