If you're a professional, or you're selling Business to Business (B2B), you'll no doubt want to engage with those professionals or businesses. Doubly so if you're a recruiter looking to attract candidates on social media.
And one of the main ways to engage with people online (including professionals and businesses) is via social media.
But knowing what to say can be a challenge.
One thing that professionals and business people like to see is an inspirational business quote.
Especially on a tough day (think the first day back from a long weekend or a holiday).
A number of factors apply in order for an inspriational business quote to engage with people:
- The business quote should be from someone recognizable:
- The business quote should ideally have something to do with your industry or target audience;
- The quote itself should obviously be positive;
- If you're showing the quote in an image, the image itself should be visually appealing;
- If showing the quote (in an image) on social media, it should really stand out in an instant;
Those are quite a few things to think about!
These business quotes are great examples of what you should use on your social media to inspire your followers.
Our first quote is from none other than Steve Jobs.
Because people love Steve Jobs, that's why!
Part of that love relates to his personality, another part comes from the love of Apple products and yet another part is the fact that Apple is so successful.
And Steve Jobs has so many insightful, inspirational and out there business quotes.
The image template we created allows you to enter any text that you want onto an iMac. So you can even use this template to put a completely random text on there, instead of a quote.
Our second quote is from Mark Cuban, a hugely successful and well known businessman. He's mostly known for his work on Shark Tank (a popular business program on ABC).
This quote isn't inspirational in a positive sense, rather it can be inspirational to up your game in a competetive sense.
The template (which you can use by clicking on the link above), can easily be used for a wide range of business quotes, or non-quote text, because the bankground image depicts a negotiation, or work in general. Which is suitable for all kinds of images.
If you're into tech, or interested in bootstrapping (in which case you should look at Indie Hackers), you probably know about Minimal Viable Products (MVP's). This quote touches on that subject by stating that you should limit the number of details to work on.
Jack Dorsey is the co-founder of Twitter, which is a very recognizable product, so a great business quote (and image) to engage followers on your social media.
The background image is of a bird that resembles the Twitter mascot.
Jason Friedman, and Basecamp (formerly 37 Signals), is a well known figure in the online application world. Basecamp is an application used by millions, and run by a small talented team.
As you can see by his motto, he's a big believer in staying small and agile.
The image template can be used to include your own quote or business saying, or can be used as is in your social media feed.
Ok, so I couldn't resist another business quote from Steve Jobs.
I already explained that above, he's a business legend!
This image template is sure to stand out on social media, because of the rich and thick black borders, and the text that has a contrasting white background to it. Not only that but the background shows a busy street setting which plays nice with the business quote.
Inspirational business quotes are great to use to engage your social media followers (if they're professionals or people in business). People love successful business men and women, and love the things they say about business even more.
If you want to use these images with business quotes on them, you can do so, but if you want to include your own quotes, you can do so too using SoImagely.
