Posting online on Social Networks

If you plan to make an income from the Internet, posting is one of the main ways you will gain attention. There are several ways that you can do this, but here is my solution.  One of the first things you need to do is make a commitment to post on a daily, regular basis.  I have friends, connections and followers on oGoing (700+), Facebook (450+), LinkedIn (1,025+), Twitter (740+) and others that post on anything but a regular basis. As I have said on hundreds of posts, consistency is a key to branding and business development.

You must be ready to post every day on key social networks!


Here is a habit I have developed. I try to post at least twice a day, mornings and early evenings.  These are the times to catch most people (Followers). If you can plan to do more in your day it is even better.  On days I am near my computer more often I have posted up to six times in a day, at least two hours apart. If you get really good at this you can take time on a Sunday evening or early Monday morning to find all your articles for the week that you plan to post. I am involved on over 50 pages on Facebook. When I post an article or information about my book, I post to five pages in a group and then post to another outlet like oGoing. After about 20 minutes going back and forth between Facebook and all my other sources, I have made post on all outlets, the same exact post. This gives the consistent flavor to the post time.  After all the posts have been placed, I then answer e-mail, respond to post replies and other admin duties.

Once you have established your pattern it is best to keep the same times each day.  This way you will build new followers and keep your original friends and connections.  People are creatures of habit, so they will come to expect your posts about the same time. By keeping them informed you will build trust and a more fervent follower. This is a habit that will make you grow. The whatever or whenever patter you are using now is not working. Get consistent and grow your business.
