As a small business owner, I find the I wear many hats: designer, social media manager, accountant, advertising, legal… It’s a lot.

You can republish this evergreen content year round on your social media accounts. But it’s very easy to slip into a repetitive spammy pattern.

If you make the switch to using a small amount of 10-20 evergreen blog posts, you will still have to write interesting posts for your social media.

Many people automate their blog automatically post to social media so their social media posts look like this

To optimize those posts, use keywords and/or hashtags and use rich media content like pictures or videos. People are much more likely to like and share content that has rich media.

 

It’s also important to not share the same blogs in a row. Stagger them so you share the post one every 5 days perhaps. But just make sure you wrote your social media post with variation.
