We all struggle with content. It’s not so much the posting — that can be automated. It’s thinking of original social media post ideas for summer.
Well, you can get back to your ice cream, pools and fun because here are 20 ideas for your chamber that take the work out of social for summer.
First create a hashtag just for this time of year (for sake of ease I’m going to use my town of Treasure Island in the examples, but you’ll want to switch it out for your own). Creating a hashtag lets you easily track what’s being shared and you can comment on the shares. It also gets your campaign noticed by others.
Create something like:
Summer Post Ideas for Social Shares
There’s no better way to start a conversation than by asking someone’s opinion. Make sure you share your own (and your staff’s) as well.
- What’s your favorite place to take a dip in Treasure Island?
- Ice cream or Snow Cone?
- How do you cool off in Treasure Island?
- Do you like hot or cold better?
- What color are you wearing today and what does it remind you of?
Fill In the Blanks
Again, people like to share what they think.

- In the summer, you’ll never find me _____, because I’m always _____________
Share Some Images (and encourage members to do the same)
Images draw us in. Share some of your faves and ask others to do the same. If you have the time, you could create a contest around the shares as well, or at least ask people to vote for their favorites.
- Coolest spot in town
- Most thirst quenching beverage
- It isn’t summer without this
- Best summer hangout
- Coolest pet
- Who needs to leave town on vacation (share the best local spots to visit)
- Look what I found at the farmer’s market
- These kids know how to enjoy themselves
- Where is this (share a pic and make people guess where you took it)

Hopefully these ideas will streamline your shares to the point that you can enjoy your summer too.
