We have all heard of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ etc and no doubt have all used at least one of these social media sites BUT are we all getting the most out of them for our businesses? Most businesses are actively involved in social media and even have dedicated teams focusing solely on posting and sharing information about their business and products throughout the day.
But what about the small business owners that can only posts a couple of times a day in-between everything else they have to do?
If this is you, then you need to make sure that your posts count and reach as big an audience as possible in one hit. One of the best ways to do this is by understanding when you should be posting your social media love!
