Finding the Best Times to Post on Social Media

When posting on business social media accounts, it’s extremely important to have a detailed content calendar. An organized plan for your content allows you to see what you will be posting during each quarter. So while you may have good content that you want to share, you need to go through a quick checklist.


Choose your platform:

  • Facebook, Instagram, Twitter – Each platform has its own uniqueness and posts perform differently on each.


Target audience:

  • What age group, marital status, income, education are you trying to reach.


Regions you’re after:

  • Don’t forget timezones! Focus on posting when the majority of your target demo might be online.


Your goals overall:

  • informative – impressions – engagement – clicks – conversions.
