To summarize, try mixing it up by posting:

  • an interesting, curious or fascinating fact
  • a tip on how to approach something related to your business identity
  • links to other’s content with a brief description why you appreciate the information
  • not too many questions, though these can be great for just the right topic
  • inspire fans to take action by telling them why
  • outline things they can expect from something
  • a sub-note like a P.S. is a great way to reinforce a CTA
  • shorter links, using a link shortener such as bitly.com
  • images to reinforce your text
  • requests for reader’s to make comments on the post
