1. Analytics are nothing new.
Are your posts being seen more on Monday morning, or perhaps Wednesday evening? Make sure you’re keeping track of your content regularly. Focus on which posts have the largest reach, highest interaction, the most retweets, likes, shares, comments, and the most popular time of day you receive activity. Tracking your analytics, on every platform, will help you considerably when planning out your future content and what time to post for your consumer.
2. Is your content performing as well as it should?
There is always room for growth. Businesses are realizing their pages aren’t gaining interest by sending out “robotic” content. Brands should avoid sticking to any automated content. It’s time to increase your creativity!
