What’s the Best Time to Post on Facebook?

The infamous question! What’s the best time to post on Facebook?

Here’s the economic answer – “It depends.”

If you’ve ever sat through an Economics class at any level then you know that is an Economists favorite phrase.

“Well …. it depends”

No truly it depends.

Because I can’t tell you that 8 am EST is the best time to post.

Why because you’re probably asleep at 8 am EST if you live in Las Vegas… and so will most of your followers.


So the trick to knowing when to post is knowing who you’re posting to.

Now to be honest this a strategy that is very selfish.

Knowing when to post depends on your fans right?

So what if you have no fans? The first thing you’ll need to do is build a fan base.


But what you will have to do is follow what I call a SPANNED Post Strategy.

This is what I did in the beginning building my Fan Base.

I would post ten times between the hours of 8 am and 10pm EST

That way I throw a wide net and I start to gather data to see when people are actually online viewing.


I’ll have more training on that but for now just watch this training video on how to know when to post once you have a fan base.
