Never run out of original social media marketing ideas

Can you mix margarita's with mansions? With ChatGPT you can...

There’s an official ‘day’ for everything these days.

I’m looking at the site “Days of the Year” and just this week we have:

  • World Cloud Security Day (tomorrow)

  • Independent Artist Day

  • National Film Score Day

  • National Hug a Newsperson Day (Thursday, if anyone is interested 🤗 )

  • National Ranch Water Day… (If you don’t know, that’s code for a Texas version of a skinny margarita 🍸)

… and the list goes on.

Today, for example, is Children’s Picture Book Day, Don’t walk your dog day, World Autism Day and International Fact Checking Day.

Some of these may seem random, and to be truthful, they are. You might be wondering how to create social media posts around these, particularly if they are unrelated to you.

To that I would say, that a good real estate social media presence is not all ‘one note’.

And alongside your bread-and-butter real estate content some fun and entertaining content doesn’t hurt.

So that’s where these “days of the year” type lists can come in quite handy - with a little creativity and your writing assistant ChatGPT, they can become a source of endless inspiration.

But let’s first relate them to what we do.

Prompt of the Day

A while back, I gave y’all a prompt on finding the hidden connections between two seemingly unrelated things, and this methodology is similar.

We’re going to find the relationship between something seemingly unrelated to our jobs (hug a newsreader) and relate it to real estate.

The prompt goes like this:

Give me 20 creative options for social media posts for a [real estate] business celebrating [day of the year].

Day of the year = [Insert here]

So what that might look like in practice is:

Give me 20 creative options for social media posts for a real estate business celebrating [day of the year].

Day of the year = [hug a newsperson day]

ChatGPT’s response is at this link - and I’ve also pasted it for you below. I do like #16… and bonus - it might also get you editorial in the future!

Happy Hunting 🚀
