How to Determine the Best Times to Post on Your Facebook Page

How to Determine the Best Times to Post on Your Facebook Page | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it
Do you know the best time to post on your Facebook page? I’m not talking about the recommended best times, or the times when most of your followers are online, but the times to post that garner the most reach and engagement on your posts.

I’ll admit that for a bit too long, I ignored our page’s insights. They’re confusing, hard-to-follow and time-consuming. I keep up on social media best practices, so I figured that I knew the best times to post based on everyone else’s studies.

One day, that strategy stopped working. I was posting roughly three to five times per day (the general recommended amount), and I was posting at peak times when our audience was online, and one time in off hours, since we have an international audience.

Then, all of a sudden, Facebook’s algorithm hit our Facebook reach. Hard. Our posts went from being seen by 2,000 to 3,000 people to just 200 to 300 people. Even worse, they were getting no engagement. Something had to change.

17 Ways to Know You Were Born to Be an Entrepreneur

17 Ways to Know You Were Born to Be an Entrepreneur | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it

Being an entrepreneur is hard. Really hard.

 

You put everything on the line: your talent, your creativity, your ideas, your money, and yet you still do it, sometimes again and again.

 

That's why your friends often don't understand. (Sometimes even your family doesn't understand.)

 

"Why don't you just play it safe and get a job?" they ask. The next time people ask, show them this.

 

Here's why you're an entrepreneur:

Oliver Durrer's comment, October 23, 8:39 AM
Beautiful. Thanks for this gem!
Oliver Durrer's curator insight, October 23, 8:50 AM

Great reasons to explain to anyone why you are an entrepreneur. It is not about fame or getting rich quick. It's about having to (rather than just wanting to) contribute, make a dent in the universe, realize your dream helping others realize their dreams. Following your purpose with passion equals developing your full potential and live your dream. Live, learn and contribute!

Confused by Hashtags. 5 Expert Tips for Marketing with Hashtags

Confused by Hashtags. 5 Expert Tips for Marketing with Hashtags | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it
When hashtags first emerged they were seen as only for geeks. The rumblings and rumours suggested that they would never catch on. But they did. Twitter was the first social network that adopted this strange habit in 2007.


Today the hashtag is used almost everywhere. They are even now appearing on TV, billboards and on the backs of buses!


But identifying the right hashtag is complex when it comes to social engagement and monitoring. It allows us to search conversations where our target customers mostly hang out. When you want to reach a large audience by launching a visual social campaign, then you can use hashtags. It seems like a pound symbol (#), but it is a powerful way to improve your reach to your target audience across different social media platforms.

Twitter’s move away from a strictly real-time feed became a bit more real late today.
