The Best Time to Post is NOW

There are nearly 4 billion people posting on social media, but the best time for you to post is NOW! For most social media users, posting inconsistently is perfectly fine. The average social media user mostly posts when they go somewhere cool, accomplish something, or are at an event, and their audience loves to see it. However, if you are using social media as a tool to promote yourself, your brand, or your business, optimal days of the week and times throughout the day can boost your viewership.


According to the American Marketing Association, The best time overall to post on social media is early morning on a weekday. If you think about one typical day, you wake up in the morning and scroll on your phone. By scheduling your content to be posted first thing in the a.m. when your audience wakes up and starts scrolling their favorite platform, your post will be one of the top pieces of content in their feed.


The American Marketing Association gives us these key statistics.
