How Often Should You Post On Social Media?

How Often Should I Post On Social-There is no right or wrong answer to this question. Plenty of studies have been done. Lots of experts have weighed in. I am no expert but I do have an opinion based on hundreds of meetings with real estate agents and studying social media for real estate for the last four years. Ultimately it depends on who you are trying to reach and how often YOU are willing to engage. I should also mention that real estate agents should not try to manage more than two accounts. If they are very good “at social”, four accounts at the most. However, I know from experience that real estate agents have a hard time being consistent on social media. So I advise that you start with two and if you’re able to keep up with that, increase accordingly.

Facebook Business Page: 1 post per day

Twitter: 15 tweets per day

Pinterest: 10 pins per day

LinkedIn: 1 post per day

Instagram: 2 posts per day and lots of hashtags!!

The good news is there are plenty of tools out there to help you manage this. A few of my favorite are HootSuite, CoScheduler and Buffer. Choose one and spend some time learning how to use it. Before long, you will be up and running and getting exposure for your brand!

The next questions is always, “but Kara, WHAT do I post”? Stay tuned for next week’s blog post where I will go over several types of content for all the above mentioned platforms.
