Best Time To Post


Optimize Your Posting Time: Work Smarter, Not Harder!

One of the biggest challenges in content publishing is determining the ideal time to post. This decision depends on various factors, including your audience, social channels, and industry.

With eclincher's 'Best Time To Post' feature, we take the guesswork out of scheduling by showing you the optimal times to post on your social media channels. By leveraging this feature, you can reach your audience more effectively and maximize the return on investment (ROI) for your campaigns. Let us handle the heavy lifting and provide you with valuable insights on when to schedule your posts. We'll help you identify the perfect day, hour, and minute for each platform, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram.

Currently, eclincher provides curated Best Times to Post for the following social media channels:
Facebook (Requires a Facebook page with 100 or more fans)
Instagram (Requires an Instagram Business account with 100 or more followers)
LinkedIn (Shows the number of most engagement of your top 100 posts per day)

For Facebook and Instagram, the data is based on the number of online followers, while for LinkedIn, it relies on the engagement of your top 100 posts. This article will guide you on setting up your 'Best Time to Post' settings, ensuring that your high-quality content receives the visibility it deserves and has the potential for higher engagement.
