Hop on that bandwagon. If you're looking for more engagement, social trends are one way to do this. Ever see the videos about "A day in the life of..."? Yep, we have too. Social trends are a way to be fun, share engaging content, and showcase your team is active and in-the-know about social communities. While this may not always align with company content, it does bolster your team's network growth.
Provide them a Group with trending topics that align with your company's values but also allow them to showcase their relevance.
Social prompts inspire your team to write their own content while staying relevant. You can also share images that inspire their audience to engage with the share, such as sharing an image with the question prompt.
Executives and leaders are busy and if you have a robust platform, there may be a lot of content that may not apply to what the executive team will want to share.
Create a Group for only executives so they can quickly see the content most applicable to them. Use this to send weekly Content Emails to remind them if there is content left unshared.
