How to be More Engaging and Create Interactive Posts
Creating new content ideas daily that are engaging and interactive for various social media pages can be tough after a while.
Here are some tips to help you get inspired and create such posts for your social media pages.
Utilize Daily Trends
For each day of the week, there are daily trends that you can make into posting using hashtag words. When you follow these trends and use them in the description of posts it will make you look more engaged and consistent. By doing this you can get more new followers and your regular followers will have something new to see.
Most social media platforms such as Instagram,Facebook, Twitter, and even YouTube allow for searches by using hashtag words. Include without hashtags if you are posting on LinkedIn or Google+.
Find Usual and Unique Days
Try things like posting “Did you know that XX is “XX” day, etc. Just about every day of the year has at least one unique day honoring a cause or an event. When you create a post with these things bear in mind your audience will see something new and different when browsing their social page feeds.

Ask Followers and Viewers A Question
Social media is about social interaction and many people like giving their opinion on just about anything. The best way to get them engaged is to ask a question and make a post of it.
For example, if you are an interior designer ask things like “What’s your definition of the perfect home? or “ What would you do to give this room a much-needed makeover?” For better engagement, include a relevant photo to capture attention. Posts with pictures always get more notice than text-only posts.
Ask followers and regulars to fill in the statement.
A fill-in-the-statement post could be something like “I wish I was __________” or “The most challenging part of my day was __________”.
Questions like these could lead to more social engagement on your social media pages.
Promote Events in Your Community
Whether you are a business owner or self-employed and active on social media, the more engaged you are in your community, the more local followers will be engaging with you and want to stay connected with you.
This is a great way to show you care and that you are interested and involved in your community.

Today, many business owners realize the future growth of their business depends on how they promote their services and products via some type of social media platform.
