TrustyTips: Combating Social Media Writers Block

Online Marketing Tips

For a writer, one of the biggest challenges can be dealing with writers block. What can be even more challenging is when you need to create creative, engaging and informative content multiple times a day on multiple channels. Social media has given writers the opportunity to show personality, enhance brand identity and give customers around the clock information and customer service. As experts in the field, our team of talented writers have hit this block many times – you aren’t alone!

In today’s #Trustytips we will give you some techniques to combat social media writers block and a few of our Web Operatives give us helpful tips on how they personally overcome writers block:

  • Going blank? Use it to your advantage. Post a “fill in the blank” question.
  • Teach your industry “lingo”
  • Ask customers to “caption this photo”
  • Comparison questions or images. What color skate do you like best? Blue vs. Red and post pictures side by side
  • What’s your favorite _____? This could be relevant to your industry or something random.
  • #TestimonialTuesday
  • Celebrate milestones and say “thank you”
  • Polls
  • Behind the scenes pictures
  • Use call to action words for events or promotions
  • Celebrate company moments – birthdays, fun things in the office, company outings, etc
  • Promote on one social media platform (Facebook) that you are on others (Instagram, Twitter, etc) and don’t forget to encourage them to follow you
  • Share links from an older but relevant blog post
