46 Social Media Content Ideas & Time-Saving Tips for Heat Printers

Our STAHLS’ Facebook group connects heat printers from all around the world. One thing we constantly hear from members is, “I don’t have time to post on social media, let alone know what to post.” Believe us, we understand. Running a business while tackling a million other things can seem impossible, but we’re here to help you save some time and give you ideas for future posts.

First, set aside about 45 minutes per week to create a bunch of posts all at once. From there, schedule them out for your business pages using a scheduler, like the Facebook and Instagram Creator Studio. This will free up your time during the week, so you don’t have to figure out what you’re going to post on the fly. It will also give you more time to have conversations with your followers and potential customers who are commenting on your posts.

Next, re-sharing is key! Re-share your posts every couple of weeks at various times—if they’re still relevant, they’re still very beneficial! With algorithms today, you can’t assume all your followers have seen the posts you’ve shared at the times you’ve shared them. Bonusyou don’t have to create anything new. Double bonus – if you share on your personal page from your business page, you’ll expand your reach even further.

Food for Thought

Most importantly, something to keep in mind when posting anything on social media is to post things that resonate with your followers and potential customers. It’s ok to post about your products, but try not to be selling all the time. When people browse social media, most of their intended scrolls are to have fun and catch up with family and friends. As a result, they don’t want to be sold to all the time. For example, at STAHLS’ we use an 80-20 split on our channels; 80% of our posts are educational, fun, thoughtful, and entertaining, and 20% are promotional.
