The Best Time to Post on Facebook

Struggling to engage your customers? You may be posting at the wrong time!


Have you ever wondered when the best time to post to Facebook is?  You’ve crammed your brain to come up with the perfect, engaging post, but you post it and get no response.  You may be posting at the wrong time!


This article from Social Media Today has some great tips on how you can decide when you post your updates and share information on Facebook to maximize the reach to your target audience.


Step 1 – Determine your target audience.

Step 2 – Think about what their day looks like. (ex: Is your target audience in school and away from Facebook from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.?  If so, you’re going to miss your audience if you post during those times.)

Step 3 – Apply what you know.



The bottom line is that “the best time to post to Facebook is when your audience will see it.”




What if I am not available to post when my audience can see it?

No worries!  You can easily schedule your Facebook posts to appear later!  Just simply click the arrow on the “Post” button on the bottom of the status box and a menu will expand.  Click “Schedule Post” and select the date and time you want it to show up and then click “Schedule.”  Easy peasy!
