10 Things You Need to Edit on Your Business Facebook Page
- Answer a Frequently Asked Question
What types of things are people always asking? And… perhaps your business is relatively new, and you don’t have a ton of frequently asked questions yet…. What SHOULD they be asking? (Answer that!)
- Share a fun fact about you or your business
Help people get to know you and your brand with some fun facts. Be personable and let your audience into your life a bit!
- What inspires you in your business?
Is there a certain role model that has inspired you? A good book? Let your audience know you better by learning where your inspiration comes from. And in turn, perhaps you will inspire them!
Need a little business inspiration yourself? Business Boutique was (and still is!) one of my biggest business inspirations. This book walks you through all areas of making your business dreams a reality. If you haven’t read this book yet, I HIGHLY recommend it!
- Throwback photo or story
Throwback photos or videos are always fun! You could post a fun photo of you or your team from back in the day. You could also share a story from the very beginnings of your business!
- Talk about your favorite product
You could post about a certain product that your business offers that you would like to feature. Or you could even talk about a product that is unrelated to your business that you are personally loving right now!
- Share the story behind your business name or logo
Share why your business has the name it does, and what inspired that name.
- Share a customer testimonial
People love to be inspired by other customers. Share a review or a testimonial. Thank the customer for their kind words.
- Post a shareable meme
Share a funny meme, or an inspirational thought. There’s a reason memes are one of the most-shared things on social media!
- A day in the life (of you, or someone in your business)
You audience is curious about you and your brand. Share what a day in the life looks like!
- Breaking news (about your business, your industry, your products, or you personally)
Social media is a fun and dynamic place for sharing breaking news. You could do this through a post, or better yet, share some news through live video!
- Ask an opinion
Get your audience’s input on your products, designs, and decisions. People LOVE to have their opinion heard. Plus, you get the benefit of knowing exactly what they want.
What Engagement is and Why it’s Important
100 Questions to Ask on Social Media (and get the Conversation Started!)
- Who is your business hero?
This could be someone that mentored you in the beginning or now. Or you could even share a certain business, experience, or person that has inspired you to be where you are now.
- Show your workspace
People love to see where everything happens! Make this as real as possible – No cheating by cleaning up first!
- Teach something you are an expert in
Think about your business and what areas you have expertise. You could share anything from fashion tips, to cooking advice.
- Thank your followers/ customers
Post a heartfelt sentiment that lets your people know how much you appreciate them.
- The best or worst advice you’ve gotten
Share the story of this advice and why it was the best or worst. You could even end the post with some advice for your audience, if it fits.
- How you stay organized in your business
People are always looking to learn tips and tricks from others in the business!
- Share a lesson learned
Let other people learn from your journey by sharing a lesson learned along the way.
- Your favorite tools or programs that you recommend
What tools are useful in your business or life that you whole-heartedly recommend? Is there a certain computer program or app that you use? A cooking gadget? Feature that product and recommend it to your audience.
One of MY favorite programs that I whole-heartedly recommend is SmarterQueue. This program allows you to schedule your social media out to all social platforms at a time, and you can even repost/ rotate posts – saving massive amounts of time. If you are looking for a scheduling tool to lighten your load…. I highly recommend SmarterQueue!
- Poll your audience
Give them some options and see what the results are!
- Share a funny or viral video
Add some humor and interest to your page through a funny or viral video. People love to be entertained, and adding some light-hearted humor to your business page can be just the ticket.
- Before and After at your business
Everyone loves a good Before and After! Showcase your store, your office, your team, or even yourself.
- Launch a contest on your social media page
What kind of contest could you run on your social media page? This could be complicated or extremely simple. Let people participate and reward the winner!
- Share a customer photo
People are already taking and posting great photos of your business! Share their photos (with permission, if needed!) and credit them.
- Shoutout to or highlight another business
What businesses are right around your store? Do you have certain suppliers that you’ve like to give a shoutout to? Or you could simply highlight some of your very favorites. (Make sure you tag the business in your post!)
Plug these post ideas into your social media calendar and have a month of interesting and varied content all ready to go!
