What's the Best Time to Post for the Most Value?

in #steemit4 years ago

The Steemit community is not limited to a specific timezone. Steemit is consistently active throughout the day, thanks to its' wide popularity all around the world. I'm sure you're wondering what I've been wondering for the longest time.

What's the best time to post my blog that would bring the most value?

This can be broken out into many different aspects of what people see as valuable, but for the purposes of this post, we will be looking at monetary value.

The data below is pulled directly from the Steem blockchain and represents the time of day that posts are the most valuable.

Based on all posts ever made on Steemit, the most value has come from posts that were made at 4 PM UTC.

The Steem blockchain data is based off of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) timezone. Personally, I live in Pacific Standard Time (PST) so the difference is 7 hours.

Given this information, I've decided to schedule this post to be submitted at 9:30 AM PST (4:30 PM UTC).

How is it possible to schedule a post for a specific time of day?

The answer is eSteem.

I first learned of eSteem via @digimad 's post: https://steemit.com/esteem/@digimad/this-is-a-scheduled-post-how-you-can-schedule-posts-too-with-the-esteem-app-2017622t121112623z

See his post for more info on how to schedule.

Special thanks to @good-karma for creating eSteem, which I will be using more often to schedule posts - among other things.

Thanks for this! I've resteemed and saved this for future use :D

Appreciate it. Glad you found it helpful!

You are right!
Writing an article is not enough. You need to make sure when it reaches to the most audience.
As, steem it available across all countries, reaching to max followers and users is the key.
esteem is really helpful on that.

I definitely agree. Timing is key to reach a bigger audience. A bigger audience = more value!

Nice Post and Finding ... :)

A great post, i appreciate your idea. Thank you, brainjuice, it's juicy :)

Thank you! I'm glad you find it helpful. I enjoyed writing about it.

Can you save multiple drafts and schedule them for publication over several days? I want to work on posts without posting and save as draft. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Yes you can have multiple drafts scheduled. It's a really useful tool, imo.

That's great. I have downloaded the iphone version but I find it clunky and keeps crashing. Brilliant for responding to comments etc but quite difficult to compile complex posts etc. I wish there was a way to do this (schedule postings and have multiple drafts) on the PC!

On the eSteem site, I saw that desktop version was being developed. So coming soon I hope!

I had no idea. That would be awesome! Thanks for letting me know.

Great Post! I had noticed the schedule option on esteem but had never checked it out until now. Thanks!

Very useful and easy to use.
