Actuality above all
Do not leave aside the media and the news, because you must be informed of everything that happens in your sector to be able to publish it on social networks.

Focus on Generation Z

This generation is interested in the purchase process and the most optimal user experience. What you have to do is get personalized content to try to connect successfully with this generation that has been going strong.
Content is king, but the ephemeral
It has always been said that content is king, because you want to say what you want, the text is always essential, either to position yourself in Google or to inform consumers of additional details.
However, now we are talking about ephemeral content, such as Instagram Stories or videos that are only visible for 24 hours. This type of content is what consumers demand; so get the batteries on this issue, and try to create a strategy based on ephemeral information.
The video commands
Audiovisual content is a trend this 2018. All social networks have incorporated videos, such as Facebook or Twitter; and Linkedin has been the last platform to include them.
In addition to videos, Live Streams should be essential in this year’s content calendar. You can’t imagine a successful social account without any live video.
Giveaways and contests
It is content that is always beneficial. Organizing sweepstakes or contests is perfect to increase the number of followers and engagement. It is a real claim for consumers and you can make a good publicity of the brand.
But be careful if you don’t want to have any problems. Write the legal bases of the contest in detail and there will be no complaints.
