One of the most pressing questions whether you're new to social media or a social media maven is: What's the best way to post information or share content to optimize your reach
Compendium, a content marketing firm conducted a study of more than 200 companies to determine how social media professionals may optimize their engagement with both business-to-business-to-consumer conversations.
What they found is consistent with what Ted Nguyen has experienced and he has demonstrated that he clearly knows what he's doing
Here are some highlights:
"My experience in sharing more than 21,000 tweets and Facebook posts to my more than 82,000 Twitter followers and Facebook friends is consistent with the study’s findings"
**I recommend the hours between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Pacific Time) or 1 to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) are the best times for Twitter and Facebook to optimize social engagement engagement.
**I find that tweets shared earlier in the week do better than those sent later in the week. I also have discovered that Facebook posts do best Wednesday early afternoon.
**if you look at Ted's social shares, they run around the clock. he tries his best to engage with people in real time or near real time.
