Content Generation Idea: Use Hootsuite to find Trending Topics
You have probably heard of social media by now right? And social media automation? Well Hootsuite
is a social media automation tool you can use to schedule your social media posting with, days, weeks and months ahead! That means you don't have to login to every social media site you have and manually post your content and products etc to it, it's hard enough when you have to do a lot of engaging with prospects, buyers, clients and try to get yourself seen on social media as it is! So Hootsuite can free up a lot of your time by having it post to social media for you.
And there are other social media automation tools out there like Massplanner
and more which are equally as good but for the purpose of Content Generation Idea 25: Using Hootsuite to find Trending Topics
, we'll be talking about using Hootsuite
to actively engage in Social Listening
to find trending topics, questions and other stuff that you can find that would make for super hot content to create for your blog articles, social media posts, videos and more!
So yeah, there are also several other ways to find trending topics in which you can gain some content ideas from, just browsing different social media sites and searching for things related to your niche, business or product or service etc. Searching for things using those #hashtags
that are applicable and related to your niche industry and business. But with Hootsuite, you can connect most of your social media (up to 3 with the free plan) sites anyway. Enough for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram maybe.
What you'll need to do is create some streams. Streams are where everything from your social media sites like recent posts and updates and things of people that they post etc in the timeline get shown in the stream on Hootsuite. Then just look through these streams all on Hootsuit. You can set up streams from keywords, mentions or even those other big leaders in your niche. Then you just need to look through these every day and eventually you'll start coming across lots of things you can see which you can use for content generation ideas!
Hootsuite lets you do so much more than this, even as a Free user, you can create, edit and save campaigns. Publish sweepstakes, photo and video contests and on Twitter and Instagram and more such as;
