How to get dozens of social posts from one blog post

You’re writing a blog post. And you plan to share it on your social media accounts by posting the link with a photo and hoping your followers will click and follow you there. But there’s another way, one that will allow you to generate a month’s worth of social posts from just one blog post.

Below are some ways to do just that, as shared by Josh Barney on Einstein Marketer and Kylie Fennell on MavSocial.

Get a month of social posts from one blog post

  • Share a teaser. Create interest in an upcoming blog post by posting an image, an excerpt, or a quote.
  • Share a fact or stat. Your blog post is likely to be full of them. Pick the most intriguing and share them on social.

  • Ask a question. Make it thought-provoking.
  • Make a bold statement that connects with your blog post.

  • Create a visual slideshow. Choose the most valuable sub-headings from your blog post, place them into a slideshow that provides a post summary.
  • Turn your blog post into an infographic.
  • Think quizzes and polls. Figure out an angle that connects with your blog post and post it on social, possibly as a story.
  • Got a good photo in your blog post? Post it on social. By itself.
  • Try a meme that picks up a point from your blog post. Make it entertaining.
  • Add a GIF to a short piece of copy from your blog post.
