6 Ideas for Your Brand’s First Social Media Post

You started a social media page for your business. Great job! Now you might be staring at the blank page asking yourself, “What should I post?” Check out these ideas for your brand’s first media post to get the creative juices flowing.

Introduce yourself.

Who are you, and what is your brand all about? You could share the story of how your business came to be, talk about your own background, or simply explain what you’re doing any why you’re doing it.

Introduce your staff.

Don’t want to shine the spotlight on yourself? That’s OK—feature your staff in your brand’s first social media post instead. Social media users love to see smiling faces—especially ones they may recognize in their community.

Talk about what you’re working on.

Depending on the timing of your brand’s page launch, you may be able to share news of a new product or service you’re offering, introduce a new location, or provide some other type of business update that your brand followers would find relevant.

Explain how you can help.

Let people know why your product or service may benefit them. How does it help to solve “X” problem? Your first social media post is a great place to let followers know how you will be able to provide them value.

Start a countdown.

Everyone loves a countdown! Maybe you launched your page pre-opening day. Or perhaps you are counting down to a special event your brand is involved in. Creating a series of countdown posts is a great way to generate excitement and engagement.

Share your company culture/values.

Consumers enjoy supporting businesses whose values mirror their own. Go beyond the sales pitch to share what your brand stands for.


Your brand’s first social media post should not only attract them to your page, but entice them to keep coming back for more relevant content. If you’re in a pinch when it comes to where to start, we’re here to help!
