Tips to make your social media posts pop!
- Think first about why the audience scans social media and why you click onto a story, photo or link. Social media is first social. Have fun. Stay on message and “K-State appropriate.”
- Always add a graphic.
- Keep text brief, hopeful, empowering and upbeat.
- Twitter character limit is 280, but keep it shorter so the tweet can easily be retweeted. You can also link tweets so they “ladder” or follow one another.
