The Best Times to Post on Social Media (Infographic)

Let me first say, well done. You’ve made the decision to include content as part of your social recruiting efforts and we salute you for it. The benefits of active content sharing for your recruiting efforts are huge. Creating and sharing unique content on a regular basis will help you build a strong network of followers, nurture that network (and rich talent pools in the process), build your reputation as an industry authority and influencer, and turn cold calls into warm calls. And using multiple platforms to share your content, offers you the opportunity to engage in different ways with multiple audiences.

But there’s no point in being in the right place, at the wrong time. Knowing when and where to share your content is half the battle. But finding the magic “spot on the clock” isn’t a elusive as you may think. Quicksprout have scoured various research studies conducted by several social media authorities and put together this pocket-sized infographic to help you get your content to the right people, in the right place and at the right time:
