Having specific days or times that you post content can help drive traffic, as well as giving potential customers something to look forward to.  If posts are always made on a certain day or at a certain time, then followers will get into the habit of checking your social media to see if anything new has appeared, creating a more dedicated base.

What days and times you chose depends on your audience?
