Welcome to Day 5 of our 10-Day Social Media Challenge!
Please use #10DaySMChallenge when sharing on social media.
Here is an overview of what we will be doing during this challenge:
Day 5 – Share Your Content (Let your followers know what’s happening right now)
Day 6 – Evergreen posts (Tell new fans about your best stuff from the past)
Day 7 – It’s not all about you
Day 8 – Images, quotes, and inspiration
Day 9 – Your Social Media Plan
Day 10 – Wrapping it all up
Share Your Content
You’re blogging, podcasting, being featured on other sites, and creating how-to videos for your readers, but unless they’re super fans with lots of free time, they’re unlikely to see everything you produce. You have to let them know, and social media updates are the fastest, easiest, and least expensive way to do that.
One thing that is critical to remember: no one sees every post.
That means you will need to share the same piece of content several times—and across multiple networks—to get the best results.
Images are important in today’s social media as well. Nothing catches the eye quite like a beautiful, “pinnable” image. Better still, pull a short quote from your article or post and use a tool such as Picmonkey or Canva to add the words to your image, and you’ll see much better engagement.

Day 5 Assignment
- Look at your worksheets from yesterday and pick one post to work on
- Use PicMonkey, Canva, or your favorite tool to create a meme. One thing to keep in mind is that memes are a great way to brand yourself – include your website and/or a hashtag so that people can find you if they like what you are sharing
- Share the result with us in our Facebook Group. Tell us the theme you are working on and which tool you used to create the meme.
