Content can be difficult when you have a million other things on your plate, but tying posts into a season can really help. Here are some social media post ideas for summer to get you started.
Questions and fill-in-the-blanks are a good way to get conversations going. When you post questions make sure you include an image or place the questions on an image. That way they’ll get more attention.
This or That Questions
- Lemonade or something stronger?
- Ocean or lake?
- The smell of freshly cut grass or suntan lotion?
- Popsicles or snow cones?
- A quiet day at the beach or a night at the carnival or ball game?
Fill in the Blanks
- If I could go anywhere this summer I would go to ___________
- If I could do anything in town this summer I would __________
- The top thing on my summer bucket list is ________________
- My favorite kind of ice cream is ________________________
- Summer isn’t summer without ________________________
- It’s so hot you could _________ a ___________ on a _____________
- When it’s hot how do you keep cool?
- Coldest business in town? (Literally)
- What’s your favorite warm weather treat?
- How do you know when it’s summer in our town?
- How do you spend July 4th or what are your July 4th traditions that you couldn’t live without?
Questions aren’t the only way to get engagement. Pictures are known for getting shared and don’t forget picture contests.
Picture Idea Posts

- Fun fountains
- Funny ways to cool down

Content creation is hard when you feel stressed and pressured to post something. Keeping a file of social media post ideas for summer, fall or any holiday or season means you’ll never feel stuck.
