I have learned the best time for me to post is in the afternoon, evening and early morning.
I have been consistently posting at the same times throughout the day for years and my following has learned when to expect new material from me.
Experiment with different times to find out when people engage with your posts the most.
Social Media Calendar
Now that you know when the best time to post your content you should set up a schedule. Every month plan out the content that you will want to share with our followers. Having a schedule set up will save you valuable time during the month to get your other projects done.
When you have the schedule written out you will not have to think about it anymore. You can focus on other important things like creating art and your family.
The time spent on your Facebook page during the rest of the month will be engaging with your followers.
Your monthly calendar will also give you an insight of what is working for you and what is not working.
The information you gather will help you to make better decisions in the future.
Your art marketing plan will never be spot on in the beginning. Learning the outcome of your efforts and spending the time to improve them will make you a marketing pro.
How to Schedule Your Facebook Posts
If you are sharing content that you already have, schedule your posts on Facebook.
Facebook makes it easy to schedule your content. After you have added your content and images, click on the drop-down arrow next to the publish button.
Click on the schedule link and add the time and date that you wish for it to be posted. It is that easy.
If you have enough content for the month, take some time at the beginning of the month and schedule the entire month.
All you will have to do is take some time to engage with your audience. It will save you so much time. Your posts will be published on a consistent time for your followers, and they will start to look forward to your content each day.
