Social media is critical to online marketing, but some days there’s so much to juggle that you just need a quick, easy way to post engaging content.

Here are 10 fast ways to keep your social media channels full of relevant, timely and useful content:

1. Polls or questions

People love sharing their opinions. Take five minutes to brainstorm a few questions to ask your fan base, and then another five to create a question or poll. Make it short and clear, and ensure it will provide useful insight for your business.

Example: “If we were open until 9 p.m. one night a week, which weeknight would you vote for?”

2. Day-in-the-life snapshots

What has you so busy you don’t have time to write in depth about it? What are you doing today that might interest your audience? Share behind-the-scenes pictures, quotes or anecdotes with your audience.

Example: “We’re getting ready for our launch party tomorrow! Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at all the fun. Hit like if you’ll see us there! [photo]”
