7 Social Media Content Ideas That will Attract Likes Organic Reach and Engagement Well, you’re not alone. Luckily for you, there’s a solution for that. Actually seven solutions, I’m going to break down seven social media content ideas that will attract likes, organic reach, and engagement.

I could give you many reasons why, but it’ll help me out and I’ll love you to death for it. If you’re looking to generate traffic through social media, I have another video that talks about free tools that can help you achieve it. So if you’re on YouTube, you’ll see the link, check it out. If you’re not on YouTube, go there. But before you watch the video, subscribe to my channel. So today we’re going to be focusing on likes, reach, and overall engagement.

Strategy 1: Breaking Down Technical Topics Into Image Carousels.

The first strategy I have for you is to break down technical topics into image carousels. This is one of the content types that gets the most engagement. Maybe not the most likes, but people keep swiping and you’ll get tons of views, at least on Instagram and LinkedIn. You don’t need graphic design skills to do it at all. That’s the best part. A cool tool for you to use, and it’s free, is Canva. They have tons of templates that can just help you do this. And I teach a lot about SEO and you already know SEO is complex to do all that research and figure it out. So if I want to post about SEO on Instagram or LinkedIn, then I try to keep things simple. And what I do is break them all down in swipeable carousel elements. And each slide of my carousel is small with a little bit of information that way it’s easy to digest. It’s straight to the point. And I don’t get too much into the weeds. That way people can consume the content, understand it and they’ll like it, they’ll share it, they’ll tell other people about it. It’s an amazing strategy and you should go and do this. Works especially well on Instagram and LinkedIn.

Strategy 2: How To-Video Tutorials Can Get Tons Of Engagement

The second tactic is how-to video tutorials. Just like with image carousels, start how to do video tutorials. They’ll get a ton of engagement. It doesn’t need to be professionally filmed, just bust out your phone like I’m going to do right now. And boom, I’ll pop it up, shoot myself. Be like, ah, this is how you do this. That’s all you really need to do. And if you make it short and to the point and you make it super impactful where everyone’s like, oh wow, that’s step one. Oh wow, that’s step two. And you start breaking each of them down in instructions that people can easily follow, you’ll do well. If it’s a how-to video like once, I tried to learn how to install a toilet and it wasn’t that instructional, it won’t do well. If it is instructional, helps people out, it will do well. And you can share your screen, walk people through each and every single step if you want. And that is extremely popular.

Strategy 3: “This or That” Polls

The third tip I have for you is it this or that poll. This is almost engagement bait because it generates lots of engagement. The idea is to go after some topic that people are passionate about and have strong preferences about. You’ll then offer two or more choices and invite people to leave a comment. It could be as simple as a video or an image that generates tons of comments or engagement. Typically what works better on Instagram, LinkedIn or Facebook is asking people to vote for either one or the other. When you give them options, whether it’s a comment or whether they’re able to click on, like in your Instagram stories, you can run a poll and people can click on one or the other. It creates tons of engagement. Example of this. I was on Instagram the other day. And someone was asking about the recent president. They’re like, did you vote for him? And would you vote for him again? I’m not here to get political, but that’s an example of something that will get tons of engagement. Now, I don’t recommend you get political with your polls, but I do recommend that you keep them related to your business and this will help you get more social media followers.

Strategy 4: Team Up With Other Content Creators

Next, team up with other content creators. This is probably one of the oldest in the book, right? Oldest tricks. Yet, very few people leverage them. When you partner up with other content creators, both you and the other creator are partnering up with a win. You both get exposure with each other’s audience and not only that, you get more followers. Plus, it positions your brand in a well-respected way because in your spaces, there’s someone else with a ton of followers and you have a ton of followers. Both of you will look great. If you’re too small to partner up with bigger brands, start small and that’s okay. Let’s say you only have 500 followers. Well, there’s someone else with only 500 followers, partner up with them. Maybe convince someone with a thousand followers, but don’t go after someone with a hundred thousand followers, that’s going to be tough. If you’re trying to figure out what the best way to partner up with someone is, typically it’s by going live on any of these social networks, and you guys both go live together and you promote it to both your audiences. That’s the easiest way to cross-promote.

Strategy 5: Go Live On Your Social Media

Now speaking of going live, this is the next one I have for you. Yes, you can use it when you partner with other content creators, but you can also just go live yourself. You can answer live questions, people can respond. It’s a great way to engage, create comments, and have more brand loyalty. Here’s the cool thing about going live. Social media sites are trying to keep up with the Kardashians and you’re probably like what the heck, they’re trying to keep up with the Kardashians? What I mean by that is they’re trying to get their own slice of reality TV. So if you can start going live, you could potentially draw more eyeballs because their algorithms want to promote it more. They want people to watch you, instead of “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” because “Keeping up with the Kardashians” does not make them money. but you, on their social network, being on there 24/7, going live, although you’re not really going to do it 24/7, it’s going to drive more traffic to their network.

Strategy 6:Curated List ( List Of Tools, Resources, Etc )

The next idea I have for you is curated lists. Whether it’s on resources or tools, they work really, really well. And you can do this in carousel format, or you can just do a post with, let’s say an image with like seven points or seven lists or items. Or it could just be as simple as writing down texts and posting them. It all works super well. The issue is most people don’t use lists. Have you ever been on TikTok and Instagram and you saw people breaking down recipes? That’s how-to, but they also in there, in their description, create a list of all the stuff you need to make that recipe they’re actually using both formats and those recipe tutorials do so well.

Strategy 7: Infographic & Data Visualization Carousels.

The last strategy I have for you is infographics and data visualization carousels. It’s kind of like this first one that we talked about, but it’s breaking down complex information in a simple, easy-to-understand visual. The first example, when I broke down carousels, I’m just talking about putting stats in different slides. But if you take down an infographic and you break it down into like seven carousels, instead of one long graphic, it tends to do really well.
