Spring into action this March with fresh content ideas that will keep your readers interested.  As the weather starts to warm up, so should what you’re sharing online. We are here to help season your content with ideas that keep you busy writing every day of the month. We offer a list of over 250 content ideas each month including 5 in depth ideas that you can cater to fit your business.

If you have any additional ideas you would like to add or any success stories from using any of our content ideas, we would love to hear about them! Leave us a comment below with the details.

Featured Content Ideas

1. International Ask a Question Day (14th)

Use this day to hear from your customers. Let them know that on this day they can ask you a question about your products/services or your company. Not only make it about them answering a question, but let them know that they’ll receive an answer to their question in a timely manner. Leaving the day open to get as many questions as you can that day will definitely bring your business some engagement on your social media. The purpose is that although a person can ask you a question on any normal day, this day will let them feel free to ask their question they might be forgetting to ask.  It shows that you care about your customers and want to hear what they have to say.

2. Write a Case Study

A case study is where you write about a certain product or client. You start off writing about who that client is or introducing the the product. Then you move on to explaining the problem and why the client needed your services in the first place.  After setting the story with the problem, you write about the solution you weer able to offer them and the results that received because of that solution. The perfect case study promotes your business by showing your readers how instrumental you were in helping them get their intended results. This idea is also great because it can repeated  as often as you would like.

3. Fun Fact of the Week

Whenever someone sees the words” Did you know?” they are intrigued on what you have to say next. Keep your followers on their toes by giving them a weekly fun fact that they can take away from your post or blog.  If possible, tie that fact into an opportunity to sell. An example would be if you were to say a fact regarding the benefits of one of your products that might not be known to everyone. In hearing that benefit, you may catch someone’s attention enough that they will want to purchase your product.

4. Make Up your Own Holiday (26th)

You have seen numerous “holidays” every month on these content blogs that range in ideas for every type of business out there.  Instead of waiting for a “holiday” that fits your business, why not create your own? Celebrate something that’s important to your business and offer a promotion specific to that day. If  it becomes a success, then make it annually and repeat your “holiday” every year. Eventually, your customers will come to look forward to that day and will anticipate the type of promotion you are going to offer them that year.

5. Make your Followers Laugh

Being all business all the time can be exhausting for your reader. Give them a break by telling them a short and appropriate comedic story that relates to your business. Let them know that your business can also be lighthearted.  if you don’t have a funny story to tell, them share a photo that will make them laugh. It can be a joke that’s commonly heard against  your products. Just remember whatever you post that it doesn’t portray your company in a negative light.
