This is a great question and one that many struggle with.

Social Media Marketing Conversation Starters
I don’t know why, but knowing what to do while out and about on Social Media in order to market (not sell) my Network Marketing business came naturally for me.
But, clearly, based on questions and feedback I hear, it does NOT for many people.
So I thought we could run through a few ideas on what you can post out there to invite engagement and attract more of your target audience.
1. Request feedback
People LOVE to give feedback. You can ask for feedback about products, business ideas, and so on.
2. Use Humor
Humor makes everything more fun, and at the same time, you must be careful. Funny, clean, straight and narrow jokes can go a long way!
3. Share a personal story
Why do you think reality TV is so popular? People like to be on “the inside!”
4. Share business tips and stats
What’s going on in the business world and how can that add value? Great way to get shares, likes and Retweets.
5. Pictures paint a thousand words
Look for funny, slightly controversial or unexpected photos that create engagement. Like humor, use good judgement.
Funny, inspirational, and motivational all work well to illicit comments and shares. This is especially true for image quotes.
7. Social and breaking news
Remember these are social sites so share social and trending updates. Who’s playing in the world series? March madness? Top cities to retire (yahoo.com is great for this!) And, when there is breaking news, weigh in. I live in California, earthquake rumblings are common. Makes for good engagement.
8. Polls or surveys, yes or no
Asking your fans to participate in a survey or poll not only gets them talking, it gets them invested in finding out the results. This is great for getting people to contribute their answer. And, they love to come back and see what others shared.
9. Share a question you’ve been asked by a follower
Share a question and ask what others would do in that situation.
10. ‘What would you do’ questions
Share an experience and then ask your followers what they would in that situation. I have a book of questions I use.
11. Traveling? Ask for recommendations
When you are traveling, ask for suggestions. Restaurants, hotels, theater and so on. People LOVE to share their faves!
12. Fill in the blank
An oldie but a goodie. Make a statement but let your fans fill in the blank. Example: “My favorite thing to do on the weekends is ___________”. Or, The best thing about my career is _______”
13. What is your favorite memory
Share your own favorite memory, or ask your fans to share theirs!
1. Have a strategy for this.
2. Be sure you are also out commenting and engaging on the posts of others to help YOU stay in their newsfeed.
3. Be consistent, have fun!
4. Avoid drama!
