Do you need a social media jump-start? Are your posts falling flat, or are you struggling to come up with new and interesting things to say?
Following are 21 social media conversation starters you can use to get your fans and followers to start talking!

1. Request feedback
Ask for feedback on your products, services or website. Example: “Are there any products you wish we would carry?”.

2. Be funny
Jokes, memes, funny stories and humorous videos all grab attention and encourage your followers to be part of the conversation.

3. Give the inside scoop
Your fans will appreciate being let in on a little-known fact or a behind-the-scenes story. Example: “Did you know that our CEO recently learned to ride a bike…at the age of 53!”.

4. Share a personal story
Showing your personal side is one of the best ways to get people to share their own personal experiences!

5. Cite an industry statistic
Sharing a relevant statistic shows you’re on top of the latest research in your niche; and these types of posts are great for getting shares and retweets.
