EP.06. A quick guide to writing your business’ social media posts

Don't just share
Don’t just keep on sharing, create original content.
Original content is always better than the ones you just see in the internet. How do you create yours?

Small and medium businesses have reached another height in marketing and advertising with the aid of social media. Now, Facebook, Twitter and the likes are not just a venue to share photos or status, but a great avenue to tell the world how you can solve your customers’ problems. But despite the lengths of your reach through the internet, your focus should remain local.

For this week, David Counsell and David Pritchard talk about writing stories that will work as your social media posts. How do you get to develop a story that will catch people’s attention and deliver what they expected? You don’t want to just have click bait to keep people coming but really, gives them nothing. Have a listen now and learn more.
