Part Four: Prompts for Writing Great Tweets and Facebook Posts

Sometimes the hardest part about social media is learning to speak the language. What can you say in 140 characters? How do you write a Facebook post that promotes engagement?

These writing prompts can help: 

  1. What are three things customers should know about your area? (Sample tweet: Did u know #Chicago got its Windy City nickname from windbag pols, not the wind? Sample Facebook post: How do you entertain surly teens on a family vacation?) Then, as followers post their tips, you answer with places, things to do and other tips based on your destinations.
  2. What are three tips for deciding whether a tour is right for you? (Sample tweet: Do you like to drive or ride? It’s a key question when deciding whether to tour when you #travel. Sample Facebook post: What is the best thing about choosing a tour vs. driving yourself?).
  3. What are the best free things to do in your area?
  4. How do you find out about the best deals in town?
  5. What do locals know that visitors should know about your destination?
