one that I've been using the most this year is called cap cut now whether or not this video was being sponsored by cap cut I would still be recommending them to you for your video editing needs when I was first introduced to cap cut I was mind blown because I feel like every video editing app you either have to pay to access the features or they have watermarks on their videos when you save them so far cap cut is the only video editing app I found where all of the features are available to you without having to pay plus it's available on both Android and iPhone so I tend to lean towards this app a little bit more compared to all of the others because I feel it is the most universally accessible for all of us watching this video capka is a free all-in-one video editing app that is really easy to use that anyone can really create an Incredible video if you're interested in trying them out for the next time you edit a real or a Tik Tok video I'll go ahead and leave a link in the description down below I'll include a link to the tutorial that I made for that app right here as always time Stamps will be in the comments down below because I value your time and you already know why you're here so let's get into it if you want to keep this video short and sweet let's go over what Instagram says when it comes to the best time to post Adam misseri was asked this on his stories during a weekly Q&A is there an optimal time to post and this is what he said there is no one optimal time to post but I do think it's usually good early in the day for most of your followers and if you go to your insights you can actually see at what time of day you have the most followers and I like personally to post before that Peak starts to grow there are three important things to note with Adam aer's advice one know where your target audience is located for example I'm based in San Diego but most of my audience here on Instagram is actually based in New York so if I wanted to pop up in there feeds first thing in the morning posting 9:00 a.m. might time might be too late for them because that's 12:00 p.m. their time so maybe a better time for me to post would be 6:00 to 7:00 a.m. the second thing he notes is post before peak times if you're using Instagram's insights as a guide you want to post right before that Peak goes up taking a look at my insights on Instagram we see that they look like this which basically confirms what I was just saying about the best time for me to post might be 6:00 a.m. my time which is 9:00 a.m. over in New York and then throughout the day the rest of my followers in the US they'll wake up and they'll continue to build engagement with my post the third thing to note is that there is no perfect time there is no perfect time it does not exist I hope that this is the one takeaway you all get with this video if you're doing research because you're trying to figure out what the best time to post is and this research and this Perfection mindset you have of needing to know what the exact time to post is is actually stopping you from posting you need to stop doing research allow yourself to have posts that will flop simply just because and give yourself permission to learn as you go you don't need to be perfect here nobody is expecting you to be perfect we just want you to show up exactly as you are everyone's optimal post time is going to look different depending on where you're located and who your target audiences and there's so many factors that go into figuring out what that optimal post time is for you and the best way to figure that out is by you testing it out now that we've talked about what Instagram said let's take a look at some social experiments and what this data from these experiments have looked like first let's take a look at reals and when the best time to post reals would be the influencer marketing Hub posted an article that I'll link down below which analyzed over 100,000 short form video content posts and their engagement rates globally on Instagram to find the best average time to posts for users who are wanting to increase their engagement rates for reals specifically this is what their results looked like all the times you see here listed on this image are stated in eastern t Mylanta never going to get a job as a newscaster I should have done vocal warm-ups all the times you see in this image are stated in Eastern Standard Time and in the article they notice they had a few times with particularly high levels of engagement peing on Tuesday at 9 a.m. Thursday at 12:00 p.m. and Friday at 5:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time if you want to find the average best posting time based on all of those times the average best posting times post a real is 11:00 a.m. eastern standard time now if you want to get really picky and weigh the peak times listed a little bit heavier then the average time to post reels Falls between 9 and 11: a.m. Eastern Standard Time if you want even more tips for how you can increase the chances of your reels going viral I do have a video here that I definitely recommend watching after this one now let's talk about static posts or static images in your feed later posted an article that I will also be linking down below where they analyze 35 million posts excluding reals igtv videos to find the average best time to post on Instagram for each day of the week and they included several key locations this is what their results looked like for the best time to post all of these times are listed in Pacific Standard time so if you want to find the average best time to post we're looking at 700 a.m. Pacific Standard Time which would be 10 a.m. eastern standard time which if you think about it it's actually pretty similar to the best time to post for reals something that I really love about the article posted on later is that they didn't stop there they also included the worst times to post on Instagram here you can see that on average 2: to 3:00 p.m. Pacific Standard time is
