15 Places to Curate Content for Your Social Media Accounts
Hello, I am new to W.F. I've been creating a lot of social content calendars for clients so thought I'd share this with you.
Sometimes the things that get shared most and get you the most attention have absolutely nothing to do with your brand. Of course, you still want to share that - it's why they follow you but add some fun and trending stories too.
15 WAYS TO SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA WITHOUT MAKING THE CONTENT YOURSELF
Coming up with ideas to write about is easy at first. As time goes on though you start to get a little flat. Here are a few ways to share content without having to write it yourself (almost):
Vine.co ? find something funny, cute, or helpful and share it (embed)
Pinterest.com ? find a recipe, helpful tip, or quote from the Popular category and Embed onto your site
Youtube.com ? look up your topic and find a video under 3minutes to share (embed) ex. Music, tip, howto, funny, or fun fact
Mashable.com ? look for a popular (trending) story that fits your audience (doesn?t need to be niche specific)
Buzzfeed.com ? Select something trending, funny, cute, or a fail to share
MemeCreator.com ? select browse, top views, and select one that fits your audience OR Make your own
