Wondering What to Post in Your Social Media Efforts? Roost to the Rescue!

One of the most common challenges we hear from small businesses owners when it comes to social media marketing is how to find great content to post. Let’s face it, figuring out what to post takes time and work.

Well one of the terrific things about our new social marketing tool Roost, is that it comes loaded with great content choices you can easily drop into a social campaign.  And since it’s critical you use content that’s relevant to your business…Roost’s content library covers over 50 different industries with fresh content every day.

– Question: How do you find all this great suggested content in Roost?

– Answer: Very easily :)

Next time you’re creating a Campaign or a Single Post in Roost you’ll find content in two places:

1) The “Suggested Links” Library gives you links to tons of articles and blog posts from across the web, and these are refreshed daily!

From the “Add Link”, simply select the article you want to include in your campaign, read it to make sure you know what it’s about and then select it to add.
