Do you sometimes run out of ideas for creating social media posts for your auto centre, garage or auto parts store?
Have you thought about creating content that asks your followers to respond and express their opinions? In this article, we explain how to do it well so that you can take advantage of this type of content to increase the number of subscribers on your social networks.
Engaging content is editorial and visual content that generates impact and encourages readers to actively participate. On social networks, this engagement translates into reactions (e.g.: the famous ‘like’), comments and shares.
Take for granted that most people enjoy taking sides on an issue, making their opinion known and sharing it!
Posting engaging content on social networks means getting active and immediate participation. But how do you create a post with an engaging message?
Asking a question and then asking your followers to answer it is a great way to get them thinking and getting them to take a position. Polls, questions such as ‘yes or no’, ‘this or that’, or even ‘what is your first...’ have the power to generate positions, expressions of opinion or sharing of memories. Feel free to expand your choice of topics while making sure they are related to your field. Also, remember to add a touch of humour!
Don’t forget these posts are seen and read on news feeds that are usually scrolled quickly, which means they must catch people’s eye by surprising or even astonishing them.
