5 Social Media Content Ideas and Examples for Brands



One of the most challenging aspects of being a social media content creator is that you must constantly come up with new post ideas. Don’t get me wrong; I love this job, but sometimes you’ll run low on inspiration.


But don’t worry. That’s precisely the reason I decided to write this post.


Today, I’d like to share five social media content ideas and examples. So, if you ever need some inspiration, you know where you’ll find it. Starting with…


Host an Ask Me Anything (AMA)


Hosting an AMA is possibly one of the easiest ways to come up with new social media content ideas. Especially on Instagram, all you have to do is post a story asking your followers to send you any inquiries they may have.


Now, there is a downside to this method. It probably won’t work so well if you have a small, unengaged follower base. You need people to send you those questions.


But, if you get your followers to interact with you constantly and consistently, you’ll have an endless “well” of ideas from which you can “drink” as much as you want.
