Frustrated with the lack of views on your Facebook post?
A slight adjustment may be all you need!
One of my favorite quotes from life coach Tony Robbins, “When it seems impossible, when it seems like nothing is going to work, you're usually just a few millimeters away from making it happen.” ~Tony Robbins
In this short blog post we'll discuss some of the most effective times to publish content on Facebook. I use them effectively all the time. Matter of fact, this blog post is posted during one of those "high traffic" times. Just what are the most effective times to post content on Facebook? Here's a quick summary...
Let's take a closer look...shall we?
Early am? Remember back in the day when your parents or grandparents would come to the table with the newspaper? Hopefully today, that still takes place though for many of us. Checking our cell phones is the first thing we do after waking up. Right? If you manage a FB page or enjoy writing your early morning thoughts, try posting near 7:00 am or so. A quick tip to use through out the day, is 5 minutes before or after the hour.
Mid morning? OK, so maybe not everyone is up at 7:00 am or the likes. Maybe after breakfast, just getting to work or taking that first break is a better time. Notice this blog is posted each Wednesday near 10:05 am?
Mid afternoon? I'm not a huge advocate of lunch time or right after lunch. Often times people tend to get a little sleepy. What I've found works best, is near 3pm or so. This has been one of my highest reach times.
Before prime time? No doubt everyone is tuning into the Big Bang Theory or their favorite series, right? So why try to compete with them? Either post before the big networks or shortly afterwards. Around 5:30 pm is a great time given most people are getting home from work. We tend to repeat the morning routine agree?
Create an infomercial? OK, yes I work in sales and I watch them. You might actually learn a marketing thing or two. See, the infomercials actually air often between 11:00 pm and midnight because there's generally not much to watch on regular cable TV. Hence, as I say the channels aren't "busy". So why not post a 30 second video during this time to engage your audience? Did I say 30 seconds? I'll save that for a rainy day blog post.
