Sometimes it can be hard to keep generating content daily for your social media and even more when there’s not much going on. Here are a few types of content you could use for your next social media posts:

1 - Internal projects, services or products that your business developed or offers

If your company follows an SSW rule, then share it on your social media too. Use #ssw and #sswrules so readers can find more!
