I am trying to get more interaction on my social media and more visitors to my site. How often should you be posting on social media? Does it have to more then once a day? Or can you post once a week?

Twitter
Facebook

I have been using social media marketing for one of my eCommerce websites. They say from around 11am-1pm is the best time to post on social media. Some say the weekends are the worst time to post. Though I feel like everyone on the weekends are on their phones. Maybe its because of weekend plans?

With this Covid-19 I don't really think it matters anymore, at least until this is over. everyone seems to be on their phones and arn't really going places. Which is a good thing to keep this virus down.

Guess as often as it takes for you to feel satisfied. It can be as little as once a week, or as much as keeping your status throughout the day. It really depends how dependent one is on social media for other's approval and/or side-hustle income or even main gig.

I think it depends on your niche. If your niche requires a depth in attention span, then posting it on the twitter would be waste of time. In case of some niche say like garden, posting on the instagram and the pinterest would benefit. And if it is a discussion of some sort then you can also share it on facebook. As that would give you more traffic.

I have been posting probably once a week on social media and usually it's a meme or an interesting craft I made to promote my craft forum. I don't have followers really because my craft forum is brand new but what I'm doing it sharing my posts to my personal sites and then those get shared. So off into the system it goes!

If my forum was more active I would probably have more content to post on social media but for now once a week should be fine.

You certainly don't want to over-do it. I mean, as I said in another post, the goal of marketing is to be attractive and in a position to "be found". Anyway, you all can relate to this, as nobody likes to be pushed around with a sales message.

Almost everyday I say. If you have new content on your forum or blog then that needs to be shared and viewed out there. Most forums and blog have social-media buttons and share options that gets tweeted right away, Just remember to use the right tags lol

On my end, I have an automatic feed that posts 10 a day on all social media sites.

True, you don't want to under-do it either. Anyway, though, on Facebook, at least, more than likely you're going to have to pay. However, the prices can be reasonable. One thing to take into mind is the audience.

FB can cost allot over time, but at least there they have a budget option on how much you want to spend each day. Just that for $5 a day do not expect to get much.

We shouldn't be addicted to social media.
Checking out the notifications for every two minutes or so, is just not a good thing. Once in an hour or two is fine. The same goes to posting content as well. Do we have to post our lunch habits and other stuff online?

I don't really understand why people do that. I don't use social media at all, except for WhatsApp.

I think this depends on your purpose for posting in the social media platforms. If you are promoting your site or affilliate products, then you should post reviews and content severally so as to keep the followers intrested.

I think more than once per day but don't abuse because you can lose some fans if you spam.
I think it might not be compulsory to post on Facebook for even a day since if the person have no relevant information to pass across he could just wait till another day

It really depends on the type of account you are running, you can be posting very regular to get your customers engaged or you post strategically, it all depends on you.
