What are the important factors for your posting time?

  1. Your Audience
Knowing who your target audience is and when they are most active on LinkedIn helps you determine the best time to post. Knowing your audience and the type of content they’re interested in also helps you create your content strategy and set your objectives.
If you’re aiming your content toward other B2B, then your audience might be more active on LinkedIn in the afternoon, after working hours. Also, it's important to consider when your target audience is awake. For example, if you live in Europe and target startups in Silicon Valley, you need to adjust your posting time to their current time.
  1. Your Industry
Different industries have different peak times for engagement, so it’s important to consider your industry when deciding. For example, media companies tend to post between 8 and 10 AM. Organizations operating in healthcare and higher education get more engagement between 11 AM and 1 PM. And software companies get most of their engagement outside business hours, so before 9 AM or after 5 PM.
