You’ve spent hours creating the perfect social media post and you are sure your call to action is something Guy Kawasaki would be proud of!

But … when is the right time to post that perfect piece of work?

Luckily, there is easy to access data that can tell you exactly when the perfect time is for you to post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other networks.

Hubspot recommend you look at this data to find what days and times work best for your business. They also suggest that timing can depend on the social media platform you’re using, how your target audience interacts with that platform, the region(s) you’re targeting, the content of your post (e.g. funny or serious), and your goals (e.g. clicks versus shares). Phew! That’s a lot to think about.

So how do you ensure you are posting at the right times to capture the attention of your audience?

Hubspot know that it’s not easy for small business to find all that information out so they put together an infographic using data and research collected by companies such as QuickSproutSurePayrollThe Huffington Post, BufferTrackMavenFast Company, and KISSmetrics.

This infographic is best used as a general guide to help you find the optimal posting times for your business . Download the infographic here …
