Engaging Customers with Social Share

Engaging customers with Social Share

Every day I speak with customers about the importance of using social media to spread their message. Social share helps promote your campaign on social media in an easy automated way. Let’s go over a couple of top questions about Social Share: The first question I get often is “What should I write in the post?” That is both an easy and hard question.

Easy because you want it to describe your campaign.

Hard because you want to entice your followers to view your campaign.

To help you I have created a list with some examples to get you started! This will help you decide what to put in your post and how many posts you should create!

The second question, “How often should I post?” This depends on your message and the timeliness of the campaign, for example you might be promoting a sale. It is a great practice to post multiple times after you send the campaign. When you select “Create a Schedule for me” we will give you 3 days spaced out. You are welcome to add or remove posts based on how often you would like to promote your campaign.


We also have a great infographic that shows how often you should post to social media based on the social media site you are using. Check out What and How Often Should You Post on Social Media?
