Social Media Tips: What’s The Best Time To Post?

Social Media Tips on Timing


Social media is like a cocktail party, they say. It’s a time to get to know people, not “seal the deal.”

So all the experts agree that when it comes to posting on social media your strategy should be the same as at a cocktail party: Be witty, charming, engaging, interesting, and interested in others. In short, make folks think, “This is someone I’d like to get to know better.”

So far so good. But if you’ve spent any time at all delving into the many ways to “be social” on the Internet, you know it’s not that simple. And any questions you might have will usually have more than one answer, depending on whom you ask.

Let’s consider the matter of when to post to Twitter (or Facebook, or any other social media site). As you might have guessed, the advice is all over the place.

So to keep things simple, lets get some social media tips from a single source and one of the best.

Social Media Tips From Neil Patel

Neil Patel is one of the best marketing “gurus” out there, so it’s worth paying attention to what he has to say. Bear in mind that his main audience is involved in business-to-business (B2B) marketing, so look for specific comments about business-to-consumer (B2C) situations and take the rest with a grain of salt.

Some observations:

Patel mentions some tools that can be used to zero in on folks in your area of interest. These are meant for power users (i.e. businesses with deep pockets). However, there are inexpensive or free (and therefore limited) versions that might be worth trying out for a month or two.

Take the time to visit the sites Patel mentions as his sources for additional insights.
