#30SocialDays, a FREE Challenge

Social media is important when it comes to branding a business and building top of mind awareness. It’s an effective way to communicate with your customers and potential leads, in a casual, more personal way. You want to post fresh content and keep things interesting. But, coming up with engaging, creative content, that still matches your brand… that can be hard. That’s where the FREE #30SocialDays Challenge comes into play.

Below, you’ll find 30 days (and some bonus prompts too!) of social media prompts to use for your business (or yourself!). The goal? Create a whole month’s worth of fresh, branded content, that draws engagement from your followers – and even grows your following! Our #30SocialDays challenge starts October 1st, so check out the social prompts below AND how you can partake in the challenge!

How to Participate

Are you ready to make this commitment? Join in on #30SocialDays for our second guided challenge on October 1, 2018. For the month of April, we’ll be following you along (and participating ourselves!) and helping keep each other accountable throughout the challenge. Use #30SocialDays on all your daily posts so we can follow and engage with you! Make sure to follow @elevatemarketingco on Instagram to be reminded of the daily prompts, see tips and tricks, and learn more about how to successfully use Instagram as part of your marketing strategy. And for extra attention, tag @elevatemarketingco in your Stories so we are sure to see it!


You don’t want to throw the first thing that comes to mind when you read the prompt up on your social media… Make these posts meaningful!

Example – For a #Throwback post:

  • Don’t post a photo of the car you drove your senior year of high school (unless you own a car dealership, then by all means – that’s good, fun content!)

  • Do post a photo of your first office space at your business, or the selfie you took on your first day on the job, or maybe a photo of something monumental in your career.

The goal of this challenge is to help you think outside the box, to show a different side of your business (or yourself) that your followers may not have seen, and to bring in a personal touch to your social media channels.

Remember to keep your content relevant to your brand and business. Try to use your branding colors, use quality photos, and be consistent in whatever you do!
