The easy answer is, ―It depends.‖
But we can do better than that .
We can recommend a
specific ratio.
One that we live by every
day:
30/ 60/ 10
Owned/ Curated/ Promotional
That is,
30 percent of what you share should be
Content You Created.

Here’s why
(and how):
Owned Content
What counts as your Owned
Content?
Your blog.

Your photos.
Your videos.

Your slides.
Whether they’re hosted on your

What Owned Content Looks Like:
So if it’s your social media
presence, why only 30
percent Owned Content?
Because you don’t want to talk
about yourself all day.
(It’s boring and self-absorbed).
Because you may not have
enough Ow...

What Curated Content Looks Like:
Why spend so much time on
Your Curated Content?
How does Curated Content

What Promotional Content Looks Like:
Why so little promotional
content?

Because too much selling on social is
a turnoff.
(Too much selling could cause you to
lose followers.)

Summary
If you’re looking for guidance on
what the right mix of content is for
your business, we recommend:

So if you’re sending 10 Tweets
today, it means:

3 pieces of Owned Content
6 links to Curated Content

Owned

Curated

Promotional
Of course, as they say,

YMMV
(Your Mileage May
Vary.)
Perhaps your business is
better with

40/ 50/ 10
Or even

20/ 75/ 5
But our experience says that

30/ 60/ 10
is a great starting point.
And how do you find
the content to fill out
that 30/ 60/ 10
marketing mix?

Every marketer wants a framework for their marketing strategy. And in planning your social and content marketing strategy, what's the right mix of first-party and third-party content? How often should you post purely promotional messages?

While plenty of people will tell you that it "depends," we're willing to commit to a specific ratio: 30/ 60/ 10. It's how we run our social media and content marketing, and we think it's a good way for you to run yours as well.

    2. 2. In planning your social media content marketing strategy, what’s the right mix of content?
    3. 3. How much of curated content should you share? How much of your owned content should you share? And how often should you post purely promotion calls to action?
    4. 4. The easy answer is, ―It depends.‖ But we can do better than that .
    5. 5. We can recommend a specific ratio. One that we live by every day:
    6. 6. 30/ 60/ 10 Owned/ Curated/ Promotional

    11. 11. What Owned Content Looks Like:
    12. 12. So if it’s your social media presence, why only 30 percent Owned Content?
    13. 13. Because you don’t want to talk about yourself all day. (It’s boring and self-absorbed). Because you may not have enough Owned Content. (It can be tough to create.)
    14. 14. Curated Content
    15. 15. What’s Your Curated Content? Links to content created by others that’s relevant to your brand, your industry and your community. Your Curated Content should always contain more than a link – it needs your POV and commentary.
    16. 16. What Curated Content Looks Like:
    17. 17. Why spend so much time on Your Curated Content? How does Curated Content make a difference for your marketing?
    18. 18. Because it allows you to engage your community in the most relevant topic right now. (That topic might not be you, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t chime in.) Because you have too many composer windows to fill. (Especially on high-frequency social networks.)
