How often to post to your blog?

People often ask for advice on how often they should post to their Social Media tools. Unfortunately there isn’t really a good answer because you have to consider so many factors: Audience, topic, platform, style, purpose and so many more.

However, there are some guidelines I think fit most businesses and organizations:

  • Blogs > once a week (please see the short video below)
  • Facebook > About once a day
  • Twitter > whenever you have something valuable to contribute!
