Are you trying to find out what the best time is for you to reach your readers? Are you looking for more traffic to your blog? There have been many studies on when the best time is for bloggers to publish their posts. Does it matter what time you publish your art posts?
I love everything about being an artist and owning a business. I love creating art, and I love learning everything there is about marketing to build an audience. When I have questions that I need to be answered, I often go to my favorite bloggers. I was reading a post from Darrel the owner of ProBlogger about the best time to publish posts.
Does It Matter What Time You Publish Your Art Posts?
Darrel brought up some great points that I wanted to share with you. The first thing that caught my attention was when Darrel stated this.
Today, I’m not sure that the timing of your blogpost being published has as much impact as the timing of your social media post and your emails.
I have to agree with him. I remember when I first started an online art business in early 2000’s. There were no social media sites except MySpace. I found bloggers for content that would help me grow my business and signed up for their RSS Feed. When a blogger posted anything new, it went directly to my email. Today we do not have that option. You can sign up for their email list, but you still have a chance of missing some helpful content.
It seems like social media is the go-to place for content, and Facebook is doing everything they can to accomplish this. The problem with social media is that if you do not post at the best time, you have a chance of your content never to be seen.
An email list is a great way to deliver your content, but it is continuous work to build an email list.
Darrel went on to say this.
The problem with studies is that there’s a lot of varying factors, it’s not just about when you publish your blog post, it’s also about when you share it on social media and also depends on the topic as well.
Studies are helpful, but they do not work for everyone and every niche.
I have found that what works best for me is to be consistent. I post an article every morning at 6:00 am. My schedule allows me to share it on my social networks throughout the day. I can not say that if I scheduled at a different time, I would get more or less traffic. I have found that being consistent is what is building my following.
I recommend that you find the best time for you to publish your art posts, and you stick with it. Stay consistent with the days that you post and the time of day that you post. You will not see a spike in traffic when you first publish on your new schedule, but over time you will build your audience.
