October Content Prompts

Shall I compare your social media content to a summer’s day? Well, maybe Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 might not be your go to text for content prompts, though poetry is at the heart of most posts. You want to shine online, with concise and clear language that tempts your customer enough to delve deeper, and you do this through crafting the perfect content. You don’t need to be a bard though there is no doubt the better written a post is the more likely it is to gain attention and engagement.

There’s also the opportunity for lots of autumnal themed content as well as Halloween and Bonfire Night themes. I can’t wait to see your sparkling and spooktacular content ideas.
