Best Times To Post to Social Media to Increase Effectiveness

What Time You Post Can Increase Your Social Media Effectiveness! What are the Best Times?

 

“There’s a fundamental distinction between strategy and operational effectiveness.” ~ Michael Porter

 

Analytics and Data are the tools we can use to easily turn a strategy into actual results.  Not all Real Estate Marketing decisions are made as easy as when to post to your social media.

 

When I first started down this path… all I knew was what I thought I knew.  Now I say… Let’s look at the data!

 

Your social media audience has certain times that they are viewing your social media channels.

Social Media Strategy:

If I want More Shares on Facebook
  • Be Consistent
  • NO DATA

Social Media Effectiveness:

If I want More Shares on Facebook
  • Post on Friday at 1pm
  • DATA

One is a good rule of thumb, the other is the analytics gathered from real life data that gives us the science behind what people really want.

 When you get data like what is presented in this post… why wouldn’t you use it.

I only wish there was data available for all the Real Estate Marketing decisions we have to make.
