  46. An industry-related prediction, why not start a new trend?
  47. A creative use for one of your products
  48. General lifestyle – on a day off, why not share what book you are currently reading? Film you have just watched, food you have eaten etc
  49. Themed posts – Hashtag themes are popular such as #MondayMotivation #ThematicThursday #WednesdayWisdom #FreebieFriday etc
  50. Promote your products and services – why is this last? Because this should be done as standard, so, don’t forget to sell yourself and your business, promote, promote, promote! But do everything else as well, mix it up!
