Happy Fall Y'all! I hope you have settled into the leaf-peeping season and enjoy this beautiful time of year.
Last week, I was asked this question in a training session, which sparked me to write about it. When is the Best Time to Post (BTTP) on social media? In the dynamic world of social media, timing is important and here's why:
Posting at the right time can significantly enhance your chances of reaching and captivating your audience.
Sharing content at your personalized BTTP opens the door to increased likes, comments, saves, and shares. This is because your followers are actively online, scrolling through their feeds, making them more likely to engage with your posts.
Remember, engagement plays a pivotal role in algorithms. The higher the engagement, the more likely your post will be showcased to a broader (and hopefully new) audience.
So when IS the best time?
In general terms, the early bird gets the worm. By posting in the early morning, you will see results twofold: Less competition in the wee hours. And Two, you'll catch those early-morning doom scrollers.
Also, some additional food for thought. The best day to post on Instagram is Mondays. What about REELS? Same answer as above: Mondays and early morning.
Now, let's chat about the reverse. When is the worst time to post on Instagram? You guessed it. Saturdays! People are busy doing other things and are on their socials less.
I hope this was helpful to you. Now, let's get into November content planning! Below are a few days you can use in your strategy:
