Just a few post ideas for you from Fun To Be Social.

When Is A Good Time To Post On Social Media?

Fun To Be Social - Las Vegas

How Often Should You Post on Social Media?
There really is no one answer to this question. There are a lot of variables that come into play when deciding how many times you should post on social media. Some things to consider are;

  • What platform? Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
  • What industry are you in?
  • When are your customers online?
  • What are you posting?

What Platform?
Each social media platform is different when it comes to posting. What might work on one platform might not work on the other. For example five tweets a day might be good on Twitter. On the other hand five posts a day on Facebook might not be good and might annoy some of your page fans. The best way to figure this out is to do some testing with posts, tweets, etc. Start out with about three go up to four, five, six and see what is working in regards to getting customer engagements. This will take a little patience because you want to find a good number and balance that works on each platform. Don’t rush it. If it takes a few weeks of testing it will be well worth it in the long run. Take notes and try to find the right balance on each social media platform. Find a good number of posts, tweets, etc stick with it for awhile then after about six months change it up a little to see if there is something that might work better. After awhile you will have a great idea on how many posts will work for your business.

What Industry Are You In?
This makes a big difference. I think the best way to figure this part out is to look at your competition and see how many times a day they are posting. This will give you a good idea on what is working because you will get to see how many engagements they are getting and when they are posting. Obviously only look at the competition that is actually getting customer engagements. The competition that is getting little to no customer engagement is not doing very well in social media. You don’t want to be them!

When Are “YOUR” Customers Online?
This is actually a pretty easy thing to figure out using Facebook Insights. This will let you see when your customers are online. Use this to your advantage when posting!

What Are You Posting?
This matters because it will tell you what posts are performing the best with your audience. Are you posting/tweeting informative and educational material, funny posts, company information like employee awards, office pictures, etc? Are you promoting too much? While doing your testing figure out what kind of posts work best and when. Are your educational posts doing good in the morning, but not that great in the afternoon? Do your funny posts work best in the late afternoon? Take notes and try to find the best balance of what works and when!

Like I said there is no one answer on when to post on each Social Media platform. The above guidelines will help you to determine what will work best for you and your company. It takes time and some patience, but when you start to figure out the best times to post you will be taking full advantage of the power of Social Media!!

When do you post? What works best for you? Let us know in the comments.

Have A Personality On Social Media

Use Social Media To Show Off Your Personality!

Basically what I am saying is people like people. Don’t be a robot and post as a business only. Use social media as a way to show your personality and the personality and culture of your business. Post FUN stuff!




How To Be More Personable

There are many ways to be more personable on social media. Do posts that are fun and engaging. Be as social as possible without looking too much like a business. Here are 17 posts you can totally steal. Below are some things to do when posting to be more social and less like a business.

  1. Post pictures of employees
  2. Run fun contests
  3. Talk about some mistakes you have made as a business
  4. Ask people for their opinions
  5. Post pictures at seminars/events

Be “Likable” on Social Media

By posting more as a person your customers will see a human side to your business and you will become more approachable. It’s natural for people to put up a barrier when they think they might be sold. Most people don’t like to be sold. Don’t pitch people all the time be a person.





Barriers Will Fall

By being personable on social media it opens up the dialogue between you and the customer. People will begin to trust your company. They will take down the barriers that they put up at first when they don’t want to be sold. Building trust on social media is very important. It may take some time, but, it will be worth it in the long run. Just like real life it take time to build relationships. The same holds true for social media.





Act As If

Act as if you don’t want to sell them. Act as if you want to just be social. Act as if you really genuinely care! Here is the main part DON’T ACT! Really be like that. What I really am getting at is just be FUN!! Use social media for what it is meant to be “A Social Place”. Just be likable and a person and after awhile it will get easier. The posts and customer engagements will flow like a beautiful chocolate river. Like the one in Willy Wonka! MMMM……..Chocolate!
