Monday: MarketingProfs took us through 10 simple tips and tropes for writing engaging social media copy. Some of them include:

  • Pull a quote directly from the article you’re sharing.
  • Turn on all-caps and put the outburst tactic to use.
  • Ask a question. Sometimes a question is the answer.

Tuesday: Wix covered Twitter Advanced Search: what it is and how to use it for marketing. Twitter Advanced Search allows you to search by account so you can see tweets to and from whichever account you specify. You can also use it to home in your search locally and see what strategies competitors employ on Twitter.

  1. Does this copy abide by my brand guidelines?
  2. Would my customers expect this from me?
  3. Would my customers recognize me if I took away my branding?
  4. Does this fit in with my other copy?
