Social Media Submissions

Tips for Submissions:

We find that our most successful posts are:

Visual
People are more likely to interact with a social media post if it includes an eye-catching photo or an engaging video.

Short
Twitter’s 280-character limit keeps our tweets short and to the point. For all other platforms, we try to limit ourselves to one or two sentences. Share the most important information in your post’s text and provide followers with a link to a website or blog to get details. 

Conversational
However you would tell someone about the information you have to share in person should be how you would tell people about it on social media.
