Social Media Insider – Social Opps





Q. Once I create a post for one social channel, can I cross-post to all the others?

A. You can, but you shouldn’t—at least not in an identical format. We encourage cross-promotion vs. cross-posting: one message adapted into the “local” language for each channel’s audience. This is actually a great test of whether you have a properly unique communication strategy for each social channel; if you think a post can just be cross-posted, maybe think again!
