Knowing when are the best times to post on Facebook and other top social media sites is a crucial part of your social media marketing strategy. There have been several studies done on this topic alone. Though most of these studies conflict with one another what we have found to be most effective is learning when your ideal audience is online. Not necessarily what you want to hear; but ultimately, the best time to post depends on your type of business and your audience.
There are tools that you can use to determine when your audience is engaging with your content online. By using Facebook insights you can determine the best times to post for your business and specific audience. Going through the activity log for each post listed will show the times that your audience engaged with your posts. Track and use those stats to determine the best times to post on Facebook for your specific audience.
If you have a strategy for posting to social media for your business and audience, feel free to share along with the name of your business and your Facebook page.

Remember, "We are always Creating, So Create Success!" ~ Michelle Christie
Life has many facets, and building a successful business is no easy, walk in the park. As business women we are sometimes challenged with making difficult decisions in our businesses and sometimes things just flow beautifully.
Stopping and recognizing that there is always an option, is a gift you are allowed to give yourself. Whether you are experiencing the wonderful flow of things right now, or you are walking through challenges - take a moment to stop, take a deep breath, love on yourself and smile. Things will work out just fine in the end. One of the many golden nuggets I have learned in business is that there are no "failures", just lessons learned and wins! Stay motivated -- remember:
"We are always creating, create your success!" Michelle Christie~
