Is there really a best time to post on social media? Well, I want to say that I really don't want you to take this post as the law. Meaning, that if you find a time that works better for you, then go with that time.
Best Time Of The Day To Post On Facebook
While I post more frequently on Facebook because that is the main platform I market on, these times are where I'd start: 9am, 1pm, 3pm
Best Time Of The Day To Tweet On Twitter
Most tweets sent out during this time window are more likely to get more favorites and retweet action: 12pm + 6pm
Best Time Of The Day To Pin On Pinterest
Pinterest users are on there after hours. It's a nice place to unwind (and shop), so hang out there after work: 2-4pm, 8-11pm (Weekends are Bestest)
Best Time Of The Day To Post On Instagram
Pretty much all day during work hours is the right time for Instagram.
Best Time Of The Day To Post On LinkedIn
This is the hot spot for the worker bees and these are the slots they are most active on the platform: 7-8am + 5-6pm. Post during the workday and your post will be ignored.
Of course this is for the time when your audience is mostly awake. I realize my peeps in Australia aren't usually up when I'm posting things, but most of my peeps are in the USA so I go with that.
But like I said, take these with a grain of salt. Not every time to post is perfect for everyone and you should really find out what works best for your design business.
So are you surprised by any of these times, or is there a time that really works well for you?
