Episode 31 - How To Write Social Media Posts That Don't Suck

Hey Everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Digital Marketing Dive Podcast. I’m Shawn Swaim of Shawn Swaim Consulting and the self-proclaimed king of the Internet. With me as always is Seth Goldstein, the Creative Director of Goldstein Media.

This week we’re talking about how to write social media posts that don’t suck.

  1. First, stop trying to sell shit
  2. Second, think about what your potential customer actually WANTS
    Hint: It’s not some kind of deal/coupon/special
  3. Finally, create content that’s VALUABLE to them.
    What’s truly “valuable?”
        Entertaining (make someone laugh)
        Educational (make someone think)

    1. Follow a routine of “three for you, one for me”
          Think Gary Vee’s Jab Jab Jab Right Hook

This week we’re doing our favorite Internet finds:
