Some of the best social media posts are also the most simple. You may not know which posts will get you the most reach, but you can make your life on social media a whole lot easier just by streamlining your posts. Here are some ideas for you.

Simple Calls to Action

Don’t make your followers or friends jump through a million hoops to interact with you. Give them simple choices. For example, “Which of these two choices do you like better?” And then give two choices. Don’t give them ten choices, and ask everyone to rank them. Keep your call to action really simple for the best results. Speaking of simple, did you know you could create a blog post in an hour? You can!

One Sentence Posts

We’ve all gotten so complex. How about some one-sentence posts, for a change?¬†Nothing too complicated. Not three paragraphs, but a nice picture and maybe underneath it, where you were when you took it and whatever else you can fit into a simple (not a run-on!) sentence. Could you stand it?

Share Something Funny

This is one of my favorites. Also, I have kittens, and they crack me up all day long. But you could also take a picture of something you see in your travels around town, and say what you think of it.

Post an Open-Ended Question

For instance “What do you think?” is a good question. This allows people to say “I like it!” or “that’s great!” It doesn’t always need to be intellectually challenging.

Share Your Friends’ Posts!
