Are you wondering?
- When is the best day to tweet?
- When are your Twitter followers online?
- When is the best time to post on Twitter?
If you answered yes to any of these, read on to find the answer.
Recently, when I shared how to get more followers on Twitter, I did mention about how important it is to tweet when the majority of your twitter followers are online.
One trick is to tweet your post multiple times to make sure that people in different time zone will read your tweets. But instead of tweeting 10-20 tweets at random times of the day, it’s best to find the best time to tweet and get maximum exposure.
Of all things good with Twitter, the power of Twitter in increasing brand awareness and driving traffic is now a well-known fact.
However, the only problem with Twitter is the sheer pace at which the information moves. The attention span for followers to notice your tweets can be very small.
Moreover, even if your Twitter account boasts of thousands of followers, only a small percentage are online to notice the links you share on twitter. What this means is that even with a Twitter account with a good following may not always guarantee you great results.
However, there are a few things that any Twitter user including you could do to tackle this problem.
How to Find the Best time to tweet:
Every twitter account is different and there are tools like Circleboom and similar which let you know when your twitter followers are most active. Tweeting at the time will help your tweets get maximum exposure.
Repeating the tweets:
One workaround to this problem is Repeating the tweets after a certain interval. Twitter clients like SocialPilot allow you to schedule your tweets in advance.
A lot of marketers use such Twitter tools to repeat the links at scheduled intervals. This solves the problem of attention span as the chance of more people noticing your tweet increases when you are repeating the tweets.
Basically, if you can find out the time your followers are most active on their twitter stream there lies the solution for you. If you schedule your Tweets at the same time when your followers are most active, that increases the chances of the links in your tweets being clicked.
