Emojis in copy have grown increasingly popular and can be a handy/fun tool to promote your message and show a more light-hearted side of your business. Depending on the type of TOV you want to use {professional, conversational, serious, fun} emoji choices can be a great/bad idea depending on how you utilize them. 


Hashtags help followers find relevant/similar posts to specific topics. Depending on how you want to style your post, you can integrate the hashtags within the copy or at the bottom. You do not need to use many hashtags – 3-7 is ideal.  

👉 CTA: 

CTA or (Call-To-Action) helps followers understand the purpose of the post and can help facilitate what you need them to do. Standard CTA is: “Register Now” for a webinar, “Apply Now” for a job post, and “Read more” for a blog or case study. There will be times when CTAs are unnecessary, such as a topical or employee-focused post. 

📝 Style:  

Copy style for social media has transformed over the years and helps convey TOV. Some companies prefer short, one-liners. The copy may be spaced out when it comes to longer posts, so it looks more organized and easier to read. It all depends on preference, but it is always beneficial to remember that the point of the social copy is to make it an accessible and readable experience for your followers.
