Do you even post bro: Best times to post on social media

The Scribble Weekly
Vol. 1, Issue 18

Is it time to post yet?

What should I post?

If I post on Twitter, should I do the same thing for LinkedIn, too?

Ugh, this is too hard!

If this is your thought process when you’re trying to create, organize, and strategize social media content, then this Scribble’s for you.

Let's recap

For the last 3 weeks, we’ve discussed the best times to post your social media content to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

If we’ve learned anything, it’s this: There’s no singular best time to post. Your engagement numbers will vary widely between channels.

We also know that If you post during the week, in the middle of the week, and when most people are on their lunch breaks or heading home, then you’re likely to get more eyeballs and engagement than at other days and times.

Do what works

When you amass a substantial social media content library, you’ll begin to notice that certain types of your content or hashtags will get more engagement than other types.

And when this happens, simply do more of what is working.

You may even set a trend for when you want people to engage with your content the most.

For example, every Friday before noon EST on Scribe’s Instagram page (@scribesays) we post #FinanceFridays, which is a curated news roundup of the week’s most interesting and relevant financial news. What we've seen is a growing readership from these consistent efforts.

Quick tactics for content creation

If you're feeling stuck and under the gun to create social media posts, remember that they are just bite-sized bits of your blog content.

They're your existing content library broken down into juicy, valuable, morsels of information.

Keep posting and testing different days and times to reach your fans and followers.

The more you post, the larger your data sample size, and the better your insights.

If you need a kick in the butt to focus on your social media or content cadence, then check out this Scribble about committing to the cadence.

  • 3 blogs you must have on your website, Part 1: What is your company and what do you do?

  • A book, streaming TV, or movie review

P.S. A 20 second streaming TV review

Succession, HBO (streaming on HBO Go and HBO Now)

So we were late to the “Succession” party. But we can wholeheartedly recommend this sleeper hit loosely inspired by the dealings and lives of powerful media families like the Murdochs, Redstones, Grahams, and Hearsts. In any case, the dialogue is real, comedic, and acerbic. Then again, these families didn’t get where they were pussy-footing around in the boardroom.

P.P.S. Shanah Tovah to friends celebrating Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. On this holiday, it's customary to eat an apple dipped into honey, in hopes of a sweet year ahead.
