2. Optimize your Post

 If profile optimization converts your audience into customers, who drive that audience? Here is where post-optimization comes into play. 

This optimization increases your reach and engagement. This optimization involves some following factors.

2.1 Create an image with the correct size

Everybody makes the mistake of creating one image and posting it to all the social media platforms in their early stages, and that’s wrong. 

Remember that each social media platform has a specific image size, so as a social media optimizer, you should post images with specific sizes and ratios to achieve better results

2.2 Post on the right Volume

Publishing on social media is necessary, but posting in the correct amount is even more necessary. 

Don’t upset your audience by posting continuously, and rarely publish that social media considers you spam. You must have a sufficient posting volume

  • For instagram, 1-2 Posts per day.
  • For Facebook, 1-2 posts per day.
  • For Twitter, 1-5 tweets per day.
  • For Linkedin, 1- 5 posts per day.
2.3 Post at the right time

Posting at specified times is a practice that results in increased reach and is also one of the factors that contribute to your brand’s growth. 

Every platform has a peak time of day when the most active users are present. You have a good chance of getting the most views when you publish during that peak hour. 

It isn’t easy to publish during every social media peak period, which is why the average time that every social media has a lot of traffic is as follows:

  • 7:00 PM
  • 3:15 PM
  • 8:41 AM
2.4 Write effective Captions

Attractive captions may increase engagement; captions are also incredibly important for algorithms. Some tips to follow while writing a caption

  • The caption should reflect your goal.
  • Include a call to action
  • Write captions genuinely
  • Use Storytelling techniques
  • Use hashtags
  • Use emojis frequently to express your emotion.
2.5 Don’t underestimate Alt Text

One thing that is quite common in the word “optimization” is the alt tag, whether SEO or SMO. 

The alt tag, also known as the alternative tag, is used to describe a picture so that crawlers may better understand its content. 

The alt tag is another important algorithm element. Here are some tips for creating alt text.

  • Discribe the context of the image
  • Use keywords indirectly
  • Include text that present in the image
