What We Learned
Monday: Video content is ruling social media right now. Jonny Keeley made a video explaining 8 content tutorials for Instagram Reels. The biggest takeaway: steal formats, post frequently, and just try things out.
Tuesday: People only give a website a moment (or less than a moment) to decide if they wanna keep scrolling or clicking through. Homepage and landing page content has to be captivating enough to make someone continue. Thee Digital gave tips for designing above the scroll.
Wednesday: Don’t know what to post on LinkedIn? PostBeyond has some ideas for you! They gave 11 LinkedIn content ideas with real brand examples and posting tips. It can apply your personal and employer branding.
