When you’re stuck for content to Tweet, here are ten ideas that might spark some creative content while increasing engagement with followers.
- Share posts from influencers. But more importantly, add your own comment. For example, here’s a post from HubSpot, “Holiday campaigns only run for a certain period of time. Don’t miss out by starting late: ly/H01qBtX0.” I would add/change this to my own spin, “Are you on the naughty or nice list? Holiday #MarketingCampaign to do’s now. hubs.ly/H01qBtX0 @HubSpot”.
- Inspirational quotes are great to retweets. Be sure to use the hashtag #InspirationalQuote or #QuoteOfTheDay.
- Recognize Tweeps by giving them a shout out, such as “Woot! Thx 4 the Twitter luv this week. [list several handles]”
- Post a trivia question, using the hashtag #TwitterTrivia. Here’s an example post from Auburn University (@AuburnCampusRec) @ Here’s today’s #TwitterTrivia! How long did the very first Thanksgiving meal last?” Remember to come back and post the answer and acknowledge those who got it right the quickest.
- Link to old, but relevant blog posts. Do this by reviewing annual website analytics to see what the top blog articles were for the year.
- Search for questions being asked in your industry or niche. Then answer them. Use Twitter’s search tool to help you find topics by hashtag.
- Share your favorite website and why you love it.
- Link to a podcast, Ted Talk, or video that you found inspirational and why.
- Post information about upcoming events that might be relevant to your followers.
- Share trending topic/current event news.
