Taplio helps you identify your best-performing posts to identify the right time to post content.
Use the scientific method and experiment by posting content on different days and at different hours to see what attracts more engagement.
Start by posting at different times of the day over the course of a week or two. Check the engagement rates of each post, considering how many likes, comments, and shares the post registered.
This will allow you to see which days and time slots bring in the most engagement so you can schedule your posts.

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, 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 must 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. Healthcare and higher education organisations 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.
Check out what works for others and apply the same principles to your posts. Examine the competition, find inspiration from your industry's best influencers and gain valuable insights from famous LinkedIn creators.
