Ever wonder how to get the most out of your Facebook Marketing?
Here are few quick tips, FOR FREE, to help you improve:
- Best times to post anything on Facebook (across all industries) is at 10 am and 3 pm.
- Best days to post are Monday through Thursday. Not to say it’s not okay to post on the weekends, but most people are out and about during their off times and less likely to pay attention to articles and such.
- Statistically speaking, the worst days to post anything are Fridays and Saturdays.
- You can actually schedule your posts for later times. (When you begin typing anything in the Facebook dialogue box, you’ll notice that a drop down menu shows up beside the post button. Click on that and choose the schedule option). I always suggest to pre-schedule posts in your down time. If the weekends are the only times that can write and post anything, then pre-schedule those posts for the optimal days and times listed above.
- Contrary to those sales seminars put on at the last trade convention you attended, don’t always be in sales mode…at least on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media site. People get tired of seeing your sales message, so post things that make you and your business seem human…because you are. For example, post things that interest you from various pages you follow or other post links to sites you frequent….yes, even the funny cat sites. Warm and fuzzy stories, community interest stories. and interesting YouTube videos always do great on social media. A great rule of thumb is to make 3 our of 4 posts about something other than your products and services.
- Post at least once per day during peak times. Yeah, I know it can be tough. See above about pre-scheduling.
- If you mention another business or Facebook page, always tag them and/or let them know you gave them a mention. Sometimes, they’ll re-share your post which will give you additional exposure.
- Share your blog posts every time you write one. Sometimes, it can be tough to come up with something to post, so share your blog post…like I am doing with this one.
- Be consistent. Just like all facets of personal/business growth, small things done consistently over time, turn into big things.
