Using daily themes when posting to social media is a great way to pre-plan all your posts at the beginning of the week. Then you can use a scheduler (like HootSuite or the scheduler on Facebook pages) to create all your posts at once and use the rest of the week to socialize.
Daily themes also allow your fans to engage with you more. Many people already use common daily hashtags – we’ve all heard of #WomanCrushWednesday, #ThrowbackThursday and #SelfieSunday. The more consistent you are with your daily themes, the more likely people are to participate in them, so don’t switch themes every week! Give your themes a few weeks before you decide if you want to change them up.
Using daily themes with your direct sales business will also make your posts more searchable if you use #hashtags. A hashtag can be searched or clicked on within a platform (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) to view all posts that contain it. Adding commonly-used hashtags to your posts allows new fans to find you!
Here are some daily theme ideas for your direct sales business.
#MusicMonday – post the song that helps get you through the day.
#MotivationMonday – post your favorite quote, movie scene, etc. that gets you going.
#MondayBlues – everybody hates Mondays! Share your reason why.
#ManicMonday – share what makes your Monday so crazy!
#TemptingTuesday – great for foodies (Tastefully Simple, Pampered Chef), post a new recipe to try (and the results!)
#TryItTuesday – a new food, product, game, craft, etc. that you want to try. Did you just get a new product added to your line? Here’s your chance to show it off!
#TransformationTuesday – Mary Kay, Younique, Perfectly Post and other beauty consultants can show before and after pics with their products.
#TipTuesday – post a life hack, product tip, or general advice and remember to ask your followers to share their tips as well
