Importance of digital marketing for businesses

Posting on all of your social media platforms can be quite difficult when you have no idea about what content you should offer. The competition on social media have become fierce in recent years, and what information you should share and how to offer it to connect with the public audience have become the most important issues in digital marketing.

The constant innovation characterizes this new stage in which you not only have to try to get followers but know how to maintain them and generate engagement. Many companies have a marketing strategy in which they only use social media for promotions, but it's recommended that product promotion should not exceed 20% of the total content. 

On EDIT.org, we bring you some ideas of content to publish on social media that will be very useful to prepare your digital content plan, as well as customizable templates to create your own posts. Remember to always offer varied content according to what your target audience wants to see! On the editor, you will also find customizable Community Manager calendar templates to organize your company's digital content.

20 content ideas for social media

  1. The question of the day. Social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter have added features where you are able to ask your followers questions and they can vote and give feedback on specific answers. Questions normally relate to products, but it's not necessary. You can take the opportunity to ask your followers something about your brand or a random engaging question like "do you like pineapple on your pizza?" Asking the audience is a very effective method to generate engagement. In addition, you can look at the feedback and post their answers days later with a brief reflection. This way, you will demonstrate to the audience that they are important to you and their comments and opinions are taken into account.
  2. News or important events of the segment in which you work. If your audience follows you because they are interested in your business, everything related to them will also be important.
