Content Remix: Adapting Website Gems into Captivating Social Media Posts


writing captivating social media posts

Repurposing content from your website for use on social media is a great way to extend your content's reach and engage with your audience on different platforms. Here are a few of my top tips to get you started:

  1. Choose the Right Content: Start by selecting the content from your website that is most suitable for social media. This could include blog posts, FAQs, podcasts, or your bio. From there, create engaging summaries or quotes that capture the essence of the content.

  2. Customize for Each Platform: Tailor your content for each social media platform. For example, a post on Instagram may require a different visual approach compared to a post on LinkedIn. Customize the content to fit the platform's style.

  3. Create Visual Content: Visual content tends to perform well on social media. Consider turning your content into visually appealing graphics, images, or videos. You can use tools like Canva to create custom graphics.

  4. Use Hashtags: Research and use relevant hashtags to increase the discoverability of your content. Choose industry-specific and trending hashtags where appropriate.

  5. Craft Engaging Headlines: Write compelling headlines that grab the attention of your social media audience. Make it clear what the content is about and why they should engage with it.

  6. Engage with Your Audience: Monitor comments, replies, and messages on your social media posts. Engage with your audience by responding to questions, acknowledging comments, and encouraging discussions.

  7. Lastly, don't forget to add a Call to Action (CTA)! Social media users are exposed to a constant stream of content. A clear CTA provides direction and tells your audience what you want them to do next. This reduces ambiguity and makes it more likely that they will take the desired action. Including a CTA also enables you to track the effectiveness of your social media posts. You can measure the success of your campaign by monitoring how many users responded to the CTA, providing valuable insights for future content strategies.


By following these steps, you can effectively write captivating social media posts and extend the life of your content and engage with a wider audience. Did you find any of these tips helpful? Have anything to add? I'd love to hear from you!
