Effective Posting Times for Social Media

It never fails, you received a free eBook about the most effective posing times and get excited to read about the latest, and best, way to utilized Social Media posting for your business.  You hungrily tear through the information. Then re-write your marketing plan to implement this new strategy only to receive entirely different information the next day, week, month, and so on.

Choosing the Most Effective Social Media Posting Times can boost your engagement with your audience.

Fortunately, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, thanks to CoSchedule.  In their great wisdom, they have put together information from a variety of reports to provide you with the last word in Social Media Post schedules.

We learned in school that there are 4 time zones in the U.S. So, with clients spread from sea to shining sea, what are the best times to post on the various social media platforms?

To decide this, we need to take into consideration where most of these clients are living.  According to Census records, 80% of those people living in the United States are found in the Eastern and Central time zones.  It would make sense, then, to focus our schedules on time as it is followed in those locations.


As the platform that brought social media into the spotlight and taught us a new way to communicate and market ourselves and our businesses, it’s still the first account most new businesses, and 13-year olds, open when getting started in the Social Media universe.

Best Days: Sunday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
Best Times: 9 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm

Notes:  Posting at 1 pm gets you the most shares while posting at 3 pm will get you the most clicks.


Best Day:  Wednesday
Best Times: Noon, 3 pm, 5 pm and 6 pm

Notes: Wednesday about Noon and between 5-6 are the peak moments of an employee’s break times.  Also, Twitter users are 181% more likely to be on their account during the commute home. Hopefully, for the rest of us, this refers to carpoolers who are not in the driver’s seat.


Best Days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Best Times: 7-8am, Noon, and 5-6pm

Notes:  Business people are most likely to peruse LinkedIn in the morning, in the same manner many (used to) peruse the paper.  Also, even though LinkedIn is geared more for the business market, the best time to post is still before or after work.


Best Days: Weekends (Saturday and Sunday)
Best Times: 2 pm, 9 pm, and 2 am

Notes:  The best window for posting is Saturday nights between 8-11pm. The worst time is during business hours.


Best Days: Monday and Thursday
Best Times: 2am, 8-9am, 5pm

Notes:  Avoid posting between 3 pm and 4 pm.  Posting a video at 9 pm can get you 34% more interactions.


Best Day:  Wednesday
Best Time: 9am, 11am, 12-1pm

Notes: 90% of people on Google+ are lurkers, people who are just looking and not wanting or perhaps not ready to engage with the content or a call to action.

Additional Notes for Each Platform

Facebook: Widely used both via mobile and stationary devices, at home and at work.

Twitter: Audience dependent, as Facebook is also. Often set up as an RSS feed and visited during commutes, breaks and other down times.

Pinterest:  Used mostly in the evenings after work and on the weekends during a viewer’s free time.

LinkedIn:  Designed for the professional world, viewers use it during work hours and in the mornings.

Google+:  Targets professionals in a similar manner to LinkedIn

Instagram: Designed for the mobile platform and therefore used at any time.

So, a special thanks goes out to CoSchedule for their tireless efforts to make scheduling social media posts across all platforms as easy as pie.  For this and more information on their services, visit them at

How to Use Social Media Effectively

Social MediaHow to Use Social Media Effectively

You may or may not have noticed that a few people have been talking about Jessica Higdon’s Social Media Recruiting Course, called the 10k Social Media Recruiting Formula and maybe you just haven’t had time to see what it is all about, or, maybe you have some questions, here are some common ones to help you out:

 10k Social Media Recruiting Formula

Q. Does this work for any company?

A. YES. The reason why is because recruiting or bringing in customers involves learning how to talk to other people and this is the focus of the course. Whether you sell juice, weight loss, travel or really any service or product, this course will show you step by step how to connect with people on social media and get them excited to join you and your business or become a customer

 Q: Is this up to date?

A. YES. Jessica launched her original course a few years back and has since gone back and updated all the relevant modules and added in a ton of bonuses (we have two bonuses that cover how to use and recruit on Snapchat)

Q. Does this ONLY teach you how to recruit or does it also work for those that lead with product?

A. YES. AND, you better pay attention to this. With the new FTC rulings involving Herbalife and also Vemma, there is going to be a bigger focus on bringing in customers and if you don’t know how to do this, you COULD be in trouble. In her course she walks you through EXACTLY what to say to lead with your product OR the business.

Q. How long will I have access to the course if I buy?

A. You get lifetime access to the course. You can watch the modules and or bonuses as many times as you would like

Q. Is it only Facebook related training or does she cover other Social Media platforms?

A. We do have a LOT of step by step training for Facebook but she also covers LinkedIn, and there are bonuses for Snapchat and Twitter recruiting and more. The important thing is NOT the platform but how to connect with people you don’t know using the Internet and that is exactly what she covers.

Q. Does this cover how to handle or overcome objections?

A. You are in REAL luck with this one. YES, she covers all of those things but there is an additional bonus course the Higdons threw in called How to Overcome Objections that will walk you through powerfully how to handle and overcome ANY objection

Q. Does this only work in the United States?

A. The training shares how to connect with other people, period. What drives them, how to get them wanting to chat more with you and how to handle any area where communication isn’t going smoothly

This course will help you to become a top recruiter AND a top earner and even covers how to teach your teammates these powerful strategies.

You do NOT have to be techie or have ANY results or even a warm market to use these strategies – This is ONLY available at the special price until Tuesday night so be sure to grab your copy here before the bonuses go away!

Grab it Here, but Hurry…….Time is Limited!
