So, Katie has explained why writers should have fan pages and I hope I helped by sharing some ideas on what to post. Next step? Figuring out how often and when should you post! Even if you share interesting content, ask for opinions, and don’t forget to add some humor along the way, you shouldn’t overdo it. Sharing too many updates is as bad as being inconsistent. Seeing the same person (or page, in our case) posting dozens of times throughout the day is just plain annoying and it makes you want to slap them. Result? If you post too much, people will simply stop noticing you.
- 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.
- 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
- 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Basically, switch it up and measure the results to discover what works best to engage your fan base.
Aim for a different timeframe every day to spice things up. For instance, post a status on Monday morning. Then, take a shot at posting a photo during lunch on Tuesday. Try a link on Wednesday after dinner. Basically, switch it up and measure the results to discover what works best to engage your fan base.
Now I’d like to hear from you. Are there other factors that might scare you away from a fan page?
Many Kind Regards,
