The Best Times to Schedule Your Instagram and Facebook Post
You create fabulous post for your social media but maybe you aren’t having the reach you’d like. Perhaps you should ask yourself one simple question… when is the best time to post on Facebook and Instagram? Michaelene certainly has and what she found out may surprise you.
You might think that with all the free time people have on the weekends that’s when you’ll most likely find then perusing their feeds. Nope. Turns out those are the worst days to post. I mean, who can compete with a Saturday night out on the town? So, what are the best days to post on social media? The high traffic days are going to be after hump day, Wednesday through Friday. I guess that’s because most of the actual office work is done on Mondays and Tuesdays. That leaves the rest of the week to fire up the ol’ Facebook and… never mind, open that spreadsheet, the boss is coming!
So that covers the best days to post, but what about the best times? Well that’s easy, the best time is 5am… No seriously, 5am. If that’s just too early for you, the window technically stays open until about 6pm, but you know what they say about the early bird.
Just because you know the best times to post doesn’t mean that you can skip out on using your story feature everyday! Also, keep in mind that none of these rules are hard and fast and every business is different. Mess around with your scheduled post. Watch for post that get great engagement and those that don’t and make schedule adjustments as needed until you hit that sweet spot.
