What Do I Post on Facebook?

Your question is something I always get asked during client meetings, or from friends who are trying to promote their businesses.


So don’t worry, you’re not alone. And your question makes sense. Posting about your business on social media can be overwhelming. I understand that you feel the pressure of:

  • How to get comments?

  • and, how will it get sales?

Make it About Your Customers

There are some connect and entertain ideas on our list. Some of them are quite personal and outrageous. The key is to make sure you give something that your potential customers and audience can relate to.




Post idea: Share your favorite podcast.


Don’t share something that has no relation to your business. If your business is a coffeeshop, share a podcast that talks about artisan coffee.


Always Have a Goal

At Coffeebot, we don’t just post for the sake of posting. Every post has a goal. It’s aligned with our clients’ objectives for the month, quarter, or year. Even if you don’t have a digital marketing agency behind your facebook page, do as the pros do. Make sure every post has a goal, whether it’s to educate, entertain, promote or connect. That’s why this list is categorized based on these goals.


Talk To Your Audience

This sounds like an easy one, but a lot of people have trouble creating an effective message because they’re too self-conscious. And don’t worry, the more you do it, the better you become at it.

Do: Can’t get rid of those stubborn pimples? Are you wearing so much make-up just to cover up those bumps? Does your boyfriend always make fun of your acne? I can’t offer you a better boyfriend, but I can recommend this Aztec Clay. For years, I have suffered from bad skin, until I tried this product.
