Social media is a platform where people get to meet new friends, get new ideas, promote their businesses and get to know the world in the comfort of their homes.
Social media has proven to be the number one place where you can promote your brand and I’m sure you’re on this page because you want to know the perfect time to post on social media so that you can come across a large audience and make sales.
One thing you should bear in mind is that social media platforms are a very important means to set your business, products, or brands across a wider audience. Given the fact that you want the best time to post on social media, you should bear in mind that your post should always appear in the user feeds.
I have a friend who opened a business and it was all about selling mobile phones, he knows nothing about social media and has been making his sales just in his small shop.
One day I told my friend to create a Facebook page and promote the page so that it can reach a lot of people and he did so, it took him almost 6 months to get 10,000 followers on his Facebook page.
My friend sells 2x what he sells in his shop just on Facebook, people will prefer to place their order and he will deliver, he has been doing this and his business is definitely growing.
Now I didn’t just teach him how to promote his brand but I also told him the best time he can post so that his post will come across a lot of people so I want you to hang on and read this article.
Now I told you this short story so that you can understand the power of social media to your business.
Social media has been meant and can be used by any gender whether male or female.
If you have this brand that you want to promote, I guess this article is for you and it’s not just about promoting your brand but also knowing the best time to do so.
Note that before you create social media accounts, you have to know social media sites that matter
The perfect posting time is the key to getting your business across to your audience. Given the fact that social media is across the world, users login in different time zones. So many topics and subjects have been conducted on the subject matter and different people drive to different conclusions.
Many people say weekends are the best posting time, while some say the best posting time is in the evening when people retire from their various works and login to their accounts to speak with family members.
Advice to Follow Before Posting
Here we will talk about times to post and how posting works on different social media channels.
I will just tell you the few social media sites I am sure of their posting time so that you can start from there. I’m still making some research on others and will let you know when I’m done.
These social media are Instagram, Linkedin, Twitter and Facebook.
Best Times to Post on Instagram
Instagram is very complicated and you have to be careful while using this platform to locate your audience.
If you have a business account on Instagram, visit your analytics page, on your analytics page, you will be shown where most of your visitors are visiting from, your visitors’ location determines the time you should post on Instagram. I advise you to post in the mornings of your own time zone because most of your visitors will come from your time zone.
Posting at night is not the best time because people wake up in the morning to look for fresh feeds.

Best Times to Post on LinkedIn
Linkedin is mainly made for professionals and it has almost 350 million members. Most Linkedin users are into B2B businesses and most users look for industry-related information on the platform.
On Linkedin, the best posting times are on weekdays (Monday to Friday), but if you want to post on working days it should be from (10 am to 6 pm).
So posting in the middle of the week is a good time to post.
Best Times to Post on Twitter
Now here we are, Twitter is one of the most used social media platforms where people all over the world comment and post trending activities and it’s generally used on phones.
Researchers found out that Twitter and Facebook’s news sources are good enough to know what’s trending in the world.
The best time here is during commutes in the evening and during afternoon slumps at the office.
Best Times to Post on Facebook
Facebook is the biggest social network with 2.20 billion users. Users use Facebook at least for 1 hour every day.
On Facebook, when you create a page, also join groups that have enough members, and also contribute to their discussions and share your posts there. Do well to obey the rules of the group.
If you want to know the best time to post on Facebook, it’s 1-3 pm every day.
Best Times to Post on Pinterest
Pinterest is made up of mostly females who come to look for creativity. Researchers found out that the best time is 9 pm. On Pinterest, you have to follow people and also allow them to follow you.
Use good images when posting on Pinterest because Pinterest has a lot to do with images and don’t forget to put in the link to your site.
Pinterest can generate thousands of traffic to your site when used well and you will surely make sales when you receive good traffic.
I want you to stay determined in promoting your brand, follow the right websites, post during the right times and also let your friends share your links.
These sites I listed out are the confirmed sites for now; I will get back on another post when I’m done with the other sites.
