How many posts per day is too many – or too little – for your social media accounts?
(Got your own questions for the show? Ask ‘em here!)
A question from Ana:
Hi, good morning. I’m interested in the Social Media [Marketing Service]. I’m just a bit confused. If you could let me know, it just seems to me that five posts per day is a bit excessive. Can you please just clarify for me why it would be that many? I would just like to understand if that’s what’s usually done, and what’s the benefit of it. Also, I’d like to know if there’s a minimum time for the contract, or if I just have to give a month in advance to cancel the subscription, should I not be happy with the service. I look forward to hearing from you. My name is Anna, and I’m calling from iFormat. Thank you!
Thank you, Anna. Great question. We settled on five as the number of posts that we do per account, per day with SocialMediaDaily.com because there are some marketplaces like, say, tech news, or just general news, or maybe some women’s interest stuff, where you will see accounts that post ten, twenty times a day. You’ll also see other markets and other niches, where that volume of posting isn’t necessary, and that there may not even be that much information coming out each day. We settled on five as kind of an in-between that would work for most niches.
This is a package service. We’re trying to come up with something that fits as many folks as possible, and five seemed like, for many marketplaces, it would be an appropriate number of posts per day to remain active without going into that twenty post per day realm that’s kind of over-the-top, but that still kept the account active and engaged with the audience. Now, if, for some reason, you feel like that is too much in your particular marketplace, we can certainly accommodate that. That’s not a big deal.
Your other question asks if there is a contract. No, you’re not in a contract. Just let us know. If, for some reason, it’s not working out for you, just let us know before your next re-bill and you’re golden. We do have a no-refund policy, and that’s because, once our writers are allocated to your account, because this does take time, so when we have a client come in, we say, “Okay, this writer is devoted to you, and this editor is devoted to you”, and therefore, we don’t take on additional clients past our writers’ capacity. So just let us know before your next re-bill, and we’ll be happy to cancel your account should that happen, but I don’t think it will.
Thanks for your question, Ana, and we look forward to working with you!
