  1. Is it important to do social media posts on Monday?

Is it important to do social media posts on Monday?

Honestly, yes. Posting on social media consistently for your audience is super important. And showing up for them at the start of the week can be an easy win for you—especially if you have something engaging to post for them.

What time on Monday is the best time to post on social media?

First of all, it depends on who your audience is and what time they’re online and engaging. Every single person’s social media audience is different so what works for some, might not work for others. However, according to Sprout Social, the best time to post on Monday overall is from 10am to noon. But let’s break down those stats per social media platform:
  • Best times to post on Facebook on Monday: 8am to 1pm
  • Best times to post on Instagram on Monday: 10am to noon
  • Best times to post on LinkedIn on Monday: 9am to 1pm
  • Best times to post on Pinterest: 12pm to 3pm
  • Best times to post on TikTok: 2pm to 6pm
  • Best times to post on Twitter: 9am to 2pm

What should you post on social media on Mondays?

The burning question! The reason you’re here! What in the heck should you actually post on Monday when it comes to your social media content? Here are some ideas to help you get started.
Flick’s tip: Try out Flick’s FREE AI Caption Generator to get fresh ideas each and every single day that are engaging and on-brand for your social media accounts. Try it out TODAY.
One of the best ways to get people to engage with your content is by sharing something funny or lighthearted. Fun posts get engagement—so why not show off your fun side and share something that either makes you laugh or feels really relatable when it comes to your specific niche as a brand.
Using a meme for a post (especially on a Monday!) can be a great way for you to connect with your audience and brighten their day—it is Monday after all! Memes are also a great way for your audience to recognize that you’re a human behind the screen and not just a faceless brand or business.

Share something you’ve done recently that you’re proud of

Social media is a way for people to show off their accomplishments and what better type of content can you post than an accomplishment on a Monday? Amiright?
Give yourself a digital pat on the back and help inspire others by sharing something that you’re really proud of yourself for accomplishing. Whether that’s finally completing that puzzle you’ve been working on for weeks; finally nailing the recipe you’ve been trying to perfect; or getting a new job—sharing a major milestone in your life will help your followers get a sneak peek into your life but will also feel more connected to you as a whole.
And, an even better post, would be if you shared photos and steps on how you made your dream come true. Show people how something can be done and their goals met if they also take the steps to do just that. Studies have shown that when people share success stories, people are more likely to engage and trust that brand. So go out there and show off your best self!

Share a recipe for a go-to dish you’ve been making recently

Maybe this is just me, but I love it when someone posts a recipe they have been making recently—especially at the start of the week when I am struggling to figure out what groceries I need to buy for the week ahead and what meals I want to cook.
If you’ve been making something that you love recently, share that recipe with your followers. It’s a great way to get them to engage with you and for you to ask your followers about things they have been making recently that they love.

Share a roundup post of things you got up to over the weekend

If you’re struggling to figure out what to post, doing a roundup of your weekend is a great way for you to share more of your life with your audience without the need to make content specifically for your post … because you already have it in your camera roll!
Show a series of photos or a carousel post of things that you got up to over the weekend—the photos don’t have to be aesthetically pleasing (it can honestly just be random selfies if that’s all you have!). This shows your audience that you have a real life outside of social media (that isn’t always the most glamorous!) and makes people want to engage and share what they got up to over the weekend too.
Currently, carousel posts have been getting great engagement on Instagram and it’s easy to see why. They’re easy to consume and fun to flip through.

Share a piece of advice or a quote that helps you motivate yourself back into the workweek

There is a reason that #MotivationMonday is a huge hashtag on all social media accounts. People love to have some motivation to jump-start their week, so why not give them the motivation they want?
Share a quote that you love or a piece of advice you think people should hear that will help define the week ahead for them. You could even tie the advice to a future series where you talk about pieces of advice you were given, wish were given, and more and why you resonate with them.


What other types of content work well for Mondays?

There definitely can be! These are all examples, but to measure the effectiveness of these Monday post ideas, utilize platform-specific analytics tools like Facebook Insights or Flick’s analytics tool. Track metrics such as likes, comments, shares, and overall reach. For instance, if you post a motivational quote, compare its engagement rate with other types of posts to see what resonates best with your audience. Consider A/B testing different content types to refine your strategy further.

How can these Monday post ideas be integrated into a broader weekly or monthly social media strategy?

Integrate Monday social media post ideas into a broader strategy by planning your content calendar in advance. For example, if you post a motivational quote on Monday, follow it up with a related blog post on Tuesday, a mid-week check-in on Wednesday, and so on. This creates a cohesive narrative and keeps your audience engaged throughout the week.

What are the best practices for using AI tools like Flick’s AI Caption Generator without compromising authenticity and personal brand voice?

When using AI tools like Flick’s AI Caption Generator, make sure you maintain your brand’s authentic voice! Your brand voice is everything so customize AI-generated captions to fit your tone (you can learn how to do that here!). For example, if your brand is playful, add a touch of humor to the caption. Regularly review and refine AI outputs to ensure consistency and relevancy.

How should a brand adjust its Monday content strategy during a crisis or significant event?

During a crisis, adjust your Monday content strategy by being sensitive to the context. For example, if there’s a significant event affecting your audience, acknowledge it and offer support or resources. Avoid overly promotional content and focus on building community and solidarity. This approach shows empathy and keeps your brand relevant and respectful.
