Best Time to Post to Social Media Networks

clock July 31, 2013 17:18 by author Ogoing Team

Question: What is the Best Time to Post on Social Networks?

Answer: It depends on when your customers are frequenting the social networks. (this requires some research and learning)

Anecdotal Rule of Thumb: Mornings before 10 am. Afternoons between 1 to 3 pm. And Evening times depend on what network.

However, your customers may be the late night audience, and are only logging in after 9 pm. In that case, you better have your posts pre-scheduled to show up after 9 pm... Or stay up and post them yourself.

Here is further evidence that could dispute what I just said earlier:

Facebook: Traffic is highest between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET.

Best time: Between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. ET
Worst time: 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. ET
Pinterest: Saturday morning is the best time to post.
Best time: 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET or 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. ET
Worst time: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET
LinkedIn: Post before or after business hours.
Best time: 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. ET or 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET
Worst time: 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. ET
Twitter: Post all the time (really... every hour if you really want to grab attention)
Best time: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET

Worst time: 8 p.m. to 9 a.m. ET

Google+: Traffic is highest between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET.
Best time: 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET
Worst time: 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. ET
oGoingTraffic is highest between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. PT.
Best time: 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. PT
Worst time: After 8 p.m. PT

What is Small Business Social Media Marketing?

clock March 15, 2012 16:41 by author Ogoing Team

What Is Small Business Social Media Marketing and How Can It Help My Company?
Small business social media marketing has emerged in recent years as a popular way for independent businesses to promote themselves without the need to spend a lot of money. Unlike traditional marketing methods, social media marketing is less about selling and more about building relationships with customers so that they’ll be more willing to deal with you. These relationships are particularly important for small businesses since winning the trust of leads is vital to converting them to customers.

Key other benefits of small business social media marketing include:
  1. Lower marketing costs compared with traditional marketing and promotion methods.
  2. Using social media marketing is more likely to deliver qualified leads to small businesses by creating a community with their customers.
  3. Small business owners can enjoy results from social media marketing with minimal time commitment. Studies have shown that entrepreneurs who commit a minimum of six hours a week to their social media marketing can already see a measurable increase of traffic to their business site.
What are some of the most popular social media sites used in small business social media marketing?
  1. Facebook. With some 150 million members in the US, creating a Facebook page is not only a great way to tell your customers about your business, but also develop connections with them. In particular, many small businesses have made effective use of the Facebook Wall to leave notices, videos and other content for their fans, as well as allowing customers to post their own content.
  2. Twitter. While more popularly associated with celebrities and politicians tweeting the latest updates about their activities and their personal lives, many businesses have also used the microblogging site to introduce new products and services as well as telling customers about upcoming promotions, events and sales.
  3. Company blogs. Although blogs may seem old-fashioned compared with newer social media sites, they continue to be an effective way for companies to deliver information to their customers. Just as importantly, blogs also allow customers to participate in the conversation by posting in the comments section of blog posts.
  4. Emerging social media services including Google+, Pinterest, Foursquare, Instagram, Yelp and many more. Google+ is poised to make the most significant impact since it is being integrated with Google search and key Google services such as Google Places. Google+ now has over 100 million users.

One small business social media site you should be aware of, however, is oGoing, an exclusive small business social network. Although a relative newcomer in the social media field, oGoing has already made quite an impact among small businesses looking to connect locally with their customers. And oGoing is deeply integrated with Facebook and Twitter, allowing you to use all three social media sites together as part of an integrated social media marketing strategy. Apart from connecting with existing clients, oGoing is also a great way to find new customers. Check out the fastest growing social network for small business today: Join Now

 



Social Media Marketing for Small Business

clock March 5, 2012 06:18 by author Ogoing Team

Social Media Marketing is an important aspect of running a business that should never be overlooked. A product should be hyped up in order for it to be visible to consumers and end users. Products in the market today that have benefited from outstanding marketing hypes usually tend to do better as opposed to products that have been released with little to no fanfare. For example, Apple and the new iPhone 4S and iPad 2 products that were announced in 2011. Both the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 are upgrades from their predecessors, the iPhone 4 and the iPad respectively. Although in terms of look and feel, the difference between the two sets of devices is not revolutionary (except of course the cool white iPhone 4S and the white iPad 2), because of the marketing hype generated by Apple, Steve Jobs launch presentation of the iPad 2, and timely online marketing through blogs and review sites, when the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 were released, they were selling like hotcakes.

Apple is a huge company, and its marketing and hype generating machinery is a behemoth compared to what most small and medium sized businesses have. So how do small businesses compete against large corporations? The answer: Through Internet marketing and social media marketing. The growth of social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and others has also leveled the playing field for small businesses. Social Networking for small business websites including Ogoing.com are capitalizing on this trend and have opened up a whole new platform for small businesses to succeed in this economy.

So why is social networking for small business or businesses important? And why should small businesses use social media marketing as a venue to market or promote their products or services. The scope and coverage of social media is far-reaching and it covers all demographics, in particular local markets. There is no shortage of people to market and promote a small business’ products to. And by the same token, there is no shortage of publicity and visibility for a product if it is featured on a relevant social network.

There have been a lot of good products that have gone the way of the dodo just because they weren’t marketed well. The competition nowadays isn’t about what features differentiate the product from others. Companies are now competing on ways to promote the product and to show off the product's strengths. Social networking for small business or business to business is important because it empowers small businesses to take a huge step forward in terms of marketing their products and services. Social networking for small business website including Ogoing.com is leading the charge in that area.
