Post Positively


In terms of what content is generally well received by members, there’s three words that sums this up best: positive success stories.

Made in the Midlands and our members prioritise, success stories, investment and feel-good stories staying in line with what the group is all about. The sort of things which would be perfect for the digest and magazine are generally what receives the most traffic as well.

Examples of positive success stories include:

  • Winning new projects
  • Company milestones
  • Increasing capacity
  • Investing in new equipment
  • Investing in people
  • Helping to solve industry-wide problems (e.g. tackling the skills gap by investing in apprentices)

Positive Success Story


Post Regularly


Posting articles through your social media microsite is a great opportunity to share positive success stories and champion industry knowledge through your brand. By posting regularly, every 4 weeks ideally, you will become recognised as a regular face by members and they will be more likely to click on your content in the future.

The more fresh content you upload, the more “authority” you will be deemed to have on a particular topic or within a particular sector, by both Google and industry experts alike. We recommend Made in Group members aim to upload new articles every 4 weeks to reap the wholehearted benefits of both membership engagement and SEO optimisation.
