Many small business owners don’t really know what to do about their Social Media on a day-to-day basis. 
It can be very stressful because you have to think about a lot of things: 

  • What should you post? 
  • How can you connect with your audience?
  • How can you boost your profits?

You came to the right place! Here you’ll find over 100+ June Social Media ideas and a free content calendar. So let’s dive in.

A Guide To Creating Great Social Media Content

Creating great Social Media content for your business is an art form. With so many platforms out there, you’re bound to have a lot of content to create and manage.

It’s not a secret, but there are some basics you should follow. We’re going to look at the most essential parts of it.

Start with content goals and strategies

The easiest way to create great Social Media content is to have a goal & formula in mind before you start.

  • What is your end goal with this piece of content? (More engagement, clicking the link, sharing…)
  • Who is your target audience, and what are they struggling with?
  • What kind of valuable content can you create that will help them?
  • What can you teach those who are unaware of their problem?

Make sure you really go in-depth with the question above.

Valuable content

You need to be consistent in your posting while also ensuring that what you’re posting is of high value. No one wants to follow a business that’s too busy (or lazy) to provide helpful content.

Stay true to your brand

Always be genuine with what you post on Social Media. If you seem fake or try too hard to make everything seem perfect, people will notice and lose interest in what you have to say. So stay true to yourself and who you are as a brand.

Don’t be afraid to share your opinions and be honest about your products. Use emotion in your posts; let people know how excited your customers are and what kind of results they have.

Know when to post

Be aware of what time of day you post. Always check your analytics to see when your followers are online and active. This will help you get more engagement and attention.

Use hashtags effectively

Hashtags make your posts reach more people, but only if used properly. So let’s look at some do’s & don’ts:

  • Never use hashtags that aren’t related to your content & niche,
  • Use the # that target your ideal customers,
  • Find the hashtags that are not over-used (those that don’t have that much competition),
  • Don’t use banned # – NEVER EVER!

Mix up your content and stay consistent

If you want to make it interesting for your followers, then make sure you’re not only posting about your products. There has to be a good balance between value, entertaining, and promo content.
Here are some ideas of what you can post:

  • Share user-generated content,
  • Make creative photos or infographics,
  • Share inspirational quotes or facts,
  • Talk about interesting news and share your thoughts,
  • Show off new products available to customers and how they can use them,
  • Ask for customer opinions about something.

To stay consistent, you should plan your content ahead. Here’s my video that will teach you how to prepare 1 month of Social Media content in just 60 minutes. You can watch it below:

Consider using a Social Media content calendar if it takes too much of your time to find different content ideas and plan them ahead. You’ll know what to talk about, and it will keep you on track.

Create beautiful graphics

One of the most important things to remember while posting on multiple platforms is to make sure your graphics are engaging. Creating posts with just text will not get you very far. 

You’ll need to generate well-designed graphics if you want to get people’s attention.
You don’t even have to hire a costly graphic designer. This tool is all you’ll need:

  • Canva is a free graphic design tool that allows users to create amazing visuals. Go to Canva.com, choose a size and layout that you want, and start making your visuals! 

Ask questions (poll questions)

As a small business owner, you are a source of information for people interested in your niche. You can create poll questions about how to make things easier for them, how to solve their problems or if they want to share their views on specific topics.

People like being asked their opinion and they love giving advice, especially when it is related to something they are interested in. You can also encourage them to share their thoughts by asking follow-up questions.

June marketing ideas

Every business should have a marketing plan and different ideas in place. It’s what keeps your business going, growing, and making money.

You may find yourself wondering what marketing ideas can you use, and you’re in the right place to get the best ones. Pick and choose the ones you love best:

If so, what changes do you want to make? You can also use this opportunity to spruce up your website design by adding new images or content.
  • Host an event: create an event where you’ll provide a lot of value. But make sure you end it by promoting your best-selling product. Let your audience know why they should invest in it.
  • Run a sale or discount: because business is slow over the summer months, you can boost your profits by offering a special discount. 
  • Social proof: you should always be using testimonials. Let your followers know why your customers love the products so much. 
  • Use email marketing: have you started using email marketing yet? Now is the moment to make your life a little easier. Start growing your list with MailerLite. You’ll be able to communicate with your subscribers on a deeper level and sell more of your products.
  • Social Media content: do you find that creating content is difficult? That’s most likely because you don’t have a content calendar and a plan in place. Create your Social Media content calendar, and you’ll save up a ton of your time.
