If you have a business of any kind, be it online or storefront, or a business website, advertising is important. There are many places to advertise but without having to pay. One of the places that you don’t even have to advertise, but merely make a post about your business and it can boost your traffic is Facebook. Randomly posting at whatever times you feel may not be enough, however. When are the best times to post on Facebook? Let’s look into that and see.
Studies Have Been Done
There have been quite a few studies done by QuickSprout, Fast Company, Huffington Post, etc, on the best times to post on various social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ and more. We are just going to deal with Facebook for now. Unfortunately, there is no perfect answer for this because it depends on your audience, your region, your platform and so on. But, putting together the data from the studies can give you a guideline to start experimenting with your particular business and see what works best for you.
People get on Facebook at work, at home, from desktops and from mobile. Starting with the worst time, according to SurePayroll, is before 8:00am and after 8:00pm on weekends. The very best time to post on Facebook is 3:00 on Wednesday afternoon.
Engagement rates are nearly 20% higher on Thursdays and Fridays and FB use really hits it’s highest on Friday. From 1:00 to 4:00pm on weekdays seem to get the highest clickthrough rates. Other optimal times are 12:00 to 1:00pm on Saturday and Sunday.
