Call upon your own community to stand together and rise up for a cause.
Invite people to join you for the day, either have someone film you during different parts of the day or just film yourself! Show the different parts of your working day, the view from your desk, what you’re working on, any new product launches, the things you hate and the things you love!
17. Be A Mythbuster
That’s right, suit up and get ready to join the Mythbusters! There are always myths and rumors in any industry. While there may not be ghosts to find (or are there?), there are truths your community may be curious about. Share your thoughts on a myth with your Facebook followers.
18. Start A Challenge
So many people love to participate in a challenge (especially if there is a chance to win something!).
It’s a great chance to connect with like-minded people and find people who love the same things as you do. (No one supports you like your best friends on Instagram!)
Start a challenge that your community can participate in! Either listing a weekly challenge or a full month challenge, see how creative your people can be!

Maybe you were sitting at lunch with a friend and ideas just came pouring out over napkins, and now here your brand is expanding and growing every day. Invite people into your start-up story and connect your success with how it all began.
20. Create a list
There are special occasions peppered throughout the year, it is a great way to cycle creative content that people can continually interact with, (and even re-purpose each year!)
For example, every day for a week leading up to Christmas or Halloween you could share your top ‘10 Christmas trees’, or ‘10 Christmas table decorations you can create at home.’ Inject your brand into a few of the examples to show how your brand takes part in the season.
21. Start A Poll
Start a poll and ask your audience what content they love getting from you! You might be surprised to learn that your how-to’s are popular but they forget to comment and thank you, or that they when you share what business tools you use day-to-day. Start a poll and ask!
