Best Times to Post on Social Media

The time of day you publish your posts and updates on social media can make a huge difference in terms of reach and interaction.
Whether you’re a fan of Twitter, Pinterest, or Facebook, this infographic provides some basic guidelines, but every niche is different. Experiment and track to see when your posts get most attention. 

If you’re building a brand and marketing your business on social media, you might be able to use a copy of my new book Tweeting For a Reason: How (and Why) to Use Twitter to Market Your Business.

      Yep, it’s important to track. This is a general guide, but every niche is different. If you’re a mom blogger, for example, you might find your social media traffic simply spikes during nap time!

  2. For some reason, whichever time I post in, I get 0 likes and 0 shares 😛

      Aww! Maybe try building your number of followers first. Maybe no-one is seeing your posts! And of course posting high quality content and links. Good luck.
