10 "Feel Good Friday" Post Ideas That Fans Will Love You For

One of the tried and tested ways to conjure up great content for your social media profiles is to give each day a theme - like Motivation Mondays or Throwback Thursdays. In this post, I'm going to give you 10 example ideas for posts on a Friday. By tapping into the mindset of your audience - tired and weary at the end of a working week - your brand can deliver the "pick me up" they need, or the catalyst that drives them happily into the weekend. Without further ado, let's get started:

1. @cspenn encourages followers to share in the experience of drinking coffee to make it through the last day of the working week.

2. Calvin and Hobbes wishes their fans a Happy Friday, along with a fun and shareable dancing animation.

3. Wawa associates the feel-good feeling of Fridays with its product - perhaps their fans will want to share in a piece of that high... and grab a bottle!

4. SF Gate goes a slightly different route, sharing some feel-good news

5. How about a feel-good image or video, like this one from Tourism Ireland? Subtle promotion, but oh, so relaxing for fans tired at the end of the week.

6. Of course, a cheery image - dogs and cats go down especially well - is simple, yet effective.

7. Become part of a global community with the #TGIF hashtag.

8. Reward your weary followers with a "Freebie Friday" giveaway.

9. Sign off for the week, thanking fans for their participation and wishing them a good weekend.

10. Highlight notable Fridays (like Friday 13th and Black Friday) to cause a buzz amongst your fan base.
