Bien que le moment varie en fonction de chaque compte et de vos abonnés, certaines des informations que je vais mentionner dans ce billet peuvent être utiles à tout le monde.

Évidemment, je ne me considère pas comme un expert et les résultats peuvent varier en fonction de chaque compte, mais je souhaitais néanmoins partager ce que je sais dans l’espoir que cela puisse aider au moins une personne.

Firstly, I want to start off by saying that you can use tools to schedule your social media posts whether it’s on Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram. These tools will make sure to publish your post at the time you want without you doing it manually, for instance if you’re busy or can’t do at a specific time, this will be handy.

Tout d’abord, je voudrais commencer par dire que vous pouvez utiliser des outils pour planifier vos publications sur les réseaux sociaux, que ce soit sur Twitter, Pinterest ou Instagram. Ces outils vous permettront de publier votre message à l’heure que vous souhaitez sans que vous le fassiez manuellement, par exemple si vous êtes occupé ou ne pouvez pas le faire à une heure précise, cela vous sera utile.

Here are some tools you can use:

  • Buffer (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram & Pinterest)
  • Tailwind (Pinterest & Instagram)
  • Hootsuite (Twitter, Facebook & Instagram)
  • Coschedule (Twitter, Facebook & Pinterest)



Best time to post: 12pm – 6pm

Whether you have a small business or you are a blogger, I’d say it’s really important that you tweet multiple times a day. Although it’s really hard if you don’t know what to say (like I do). I’ve seen loads of people get traffic by using this method so it’s worth trying it out. In addition, don’t tweet something for the sake of it, because that might make your followers avoid and scroll past your tweets. I’d say to tweet at least 4 to 5 times per day.

Que vous ayez une petite entreprise ou que vous soyez un blogueur, je dirais qu’il est très important que vous tweetiez plusieurs fois par jour. Bien que ce soit vraiment difficile si vous ne savez pas quoi dire (comme moi). J’ai vu beaucoup de gens avoir du trafic en utilisant cette méthode, cela vaut donc la peine de l’essayer. En outre, ne tweetez pas quelque chose pour le plaisir de le faire, car cela pourrait inciter vos abonnés à éviter et à faire défiler vos tweets. Je dirais de tweeter au moins 4 à 5 fois par jour.

Best time to post: 3pm – 8pm

I know many people say to post regularly on Instagram to gain followers which is quite true but you don’t have to post every single day and more specifically multiple times per day. I think quality is more important than quantity. You might post on a daily basis at the beginning when you are new to Instagram but once you have gained a couple of thousands of followers, it won’t make any drastic changes by doing so.

Je sais que beaucoup de gens disent de poster régulièrement sur Instagram pour gagner des followers, ce qui est assez vrai, mais vous n’êtes pas obligé de poster tous les jours et plus précisément plusieurs fois par jour. Je pense que la qualité est plus importante que la quantité. Vous pouvez poster tous les jours au début lorsque vous êtes nouveau sur Instagram, mais une fois que vous avez gagné quelques milliers de followers, cela ne changera pas radicalement.

When it comes to Facebook, I’d say it’s all up to your preference. It’s the same thing as Instagram, you can post multiple times per day but don’t overdo it to the point your followers are skipping your posts.

En ce qui concerne Facebook, je dirais que tout dépend de vos préférences. C’est la même chose qu’Instagram, vous pouvez poster plusieurs fois par jour mais n’en faites pas trop au point que vos abonnés sautent vos posts.

Best time to post: 7am – 6pm

With Pinterest, you have to pin every single day in order to see a difference. Sometimes the algorithm messes everything up which is very similar to Instagram but you can’t skip a day without pinning.

Avec Pinterest, vous devez épingler chaque jour afin de voir une différence. Parfois, l’algorithme gâche tout ce qui est très similaire à Instagram mais vous ne pouvez pas passer une journée sans épingler.

  1. Great post, girl! The time you post is definitely important. I always thought it makes sense to post to most social media accounts from 3pm onwards, since that’s when everyone is off work/school, but interestingly enough, my insights show that the most popular times for me are 12pm-3pm.

  2. Well… This information is geographically based. Useful for some. But I live in New Zealand and my readers are scattered across NZ, Australia, the US, Canada, India… So what’s the time?

    1. This information is based on any countries in general, it doesn’t matter where your followers are from. This will work anywhere. It doesn’t matter whether you live in New Zealand or London 😊

  3. I love reading your posts, they’ve really helped me look at ways in which I can improve my blogging so thank you ❤. I recently set up an instagram and it’s going much better than I expected it to (only annoying thing is getting dms from people selling followers but I ignore them.) Great post, I’m now looking at your advice to make a twitter!!!

  4. Such a helpful post! I’ve bookmarked it.

    Do these times sit in a particular time zone? I’m in Mountain Standard Time but I don’t know that 3pm for me would be ideal for everyone else. Most of my followers are in the US but there’s a handful few from the UK.

    1. Aw thank you sweet! This information is based on any countries in general and it doesn’t matter where your followers are from either 💗

  5. This is such a useful post. I usually aim to post on Instagram once a day but in reality, I very often go a day or so in between. I don’t always have enough imagery ready as I’m really fussy about what goes on my grid. I found the more time you spend on Instagram, the more the algorithm favours you. It’s so frustrating. Useful to know the best times to post though. Thanks lovely x

    1. Thank you gorgeous! I post once in a blue moon on Instagram, I definitely need to be more consistent on there haha. I completely agree with you, the more time you spend interacting on Instagram, the more the algorithm works for you x

  6. There are some great tips here, thank you. I agree with you about Tweeting frequently and also about not posting every day (except for Pinterest). I try to steer clear of social media at the weekends and I do notice a corresponding drop in followers and engagement, oops! 🙂 x

  7. This is such a useful post, thanks for sharing! It was interesting to learn about Instagram, I normally post in the morning but maybe I’ll save the post until the afternoon and see how it affects engagement 🙂 Thanks for sharing the tips, really good to know! ❤ xx

  8. Twitter is my not so found of social media, think I am too old. 😉 And Pinterest I have never even thought of to use for getting traffic. Will look into it. So thanks for the post!

    1. I’ve tried posting in the morning on Instagram, let’s say in terms of engagement it was good but when I post in the evening, I find it performs much better. Thanks for reading lovely x

  9. I have been looking for a good scheduling app for my Instagram! Thank you for the recommendations, I have just downloaded them all xo

  10. I find your tips useful. While I have been writing professionally, both for the government and private sector, I would consider myself as newbie in online marketing or even blogging. Writing academic articles or research papers are far different from writing online. I will surely give the social media platforms you provided here a try. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

    1. Thank you Tina! I totally agree with you, it’s very different and personally I find it much easier to write on my blog than academic papers. Thanks for reading 💕
