Your content should not be campaign-styled and promotional, yet it must be framed to fit the popular narrative.
Use quotes as headings

Announce your wins instead of plans
Politicians are mostly selling pipe dreams now, and that is not good company to be in. Share good news about your business, company, team members, office etc What really matters is the tangible impact you have made and are already making. So, show measurable achievements.
Show your team
Politicians are solo figures now; executives should not be mistaken for them. Instead, show sections of your team for visual distinction. A corporate organisation must not be seen to be a solo game.
Leverage extensive on video content
Quality video content from your business will be a boost for your business as video converts really high and will be a boost this period; it is a great alternative to text content flooding timelines. Make sure your visual identity and human touch are reflected.

Create content around testimonials
People believe reviews by other users more than pitches. Remember that third-party stories are the best PR.
Reframe content from selling to value-add
Think of your audience first and give value to them; in turn they will buy what you are offering. Politicians are already selling promises and visions that have not delivered any value yet. Be different – deliver value instead of merely speaking about it.
