10 Examples of Clever Things to Post on Facebook (Try These!)

10_Examples_of_Clever_Things_to_Post_on_Facebook_Try_These-lsclever things to post on FacebookI recently got asked this question on my profile:

What's your definition of a perfect business post on Facebook?

My response: there's no such thing!

Page owners who think like this are missing the point!

Facebook is a place to unwind, have fun & be entertained. If all you post is boring, business-related stuff, your engagement will plummet while you sit there wondering what happened.

So stop treating your Facebook page like a PowerPoint presentation!!

Instead, try posting things that stuffy business pages would NEVER post.

Like what?

Well, that's why I wrote this post. Here 10 examples of original & clever things to post on Facebook:

What to Post on Facebook

clever-things-to-post-on-facebookFiguring out what to post on Facebook takes time.

You need to test material to find the right mix of content for your page.

But the pages that get creative & put real effort into finding clever things to post on Facebook usually get the most engagement.

Yes, you're there to sell stuff -- we all are -- but Facebook users aren't always looking to buy.

So make sure to post fun content along with your salesy posts.

Personally, I use Post Planner's Viral Photos tool to find stunning content for my pages!

How do you find cool stuff to post on Facebook?
