Karen Yankovich: 3 Easy Steps to Generate Competitive Social Media Post Ideas Every Time, [undated but probably 2016]

You can’t start with strategy you have to start with the conversation. So in an attempt to provoke some inspiration on what to talk about when you have no idea what to talk about I thought I’d compile a few of my best “strategies” on social media writers block.... 

Always always always start with what is trending that day on your chosen social media platform. [Karen points out that you can often take bad news or negativity and spin it to be more upbeat.]...

Every time you attach to a trending topic with a hash tag or subject you have a better chance of being found and read because more people are talking and reading about that very same thing! Make sense?

What are your competitors talking and blogging about these days? What is on their mind and in their wheelhouse? Do you see a trend or a topic or two you haven’t covered yourself in awhile? Well then get to it and be inspired to write the best blog post or the most interesting....
