Before the covid-19 pandemic, non-profitable organizations had developed their ways of online marketing. When the virus struck, there was more competition since more businesses were trying to find their way into online marketing. These changes led to more flexible strategies for marketing.
The use of social media has aggravated by 10.3% between July 2019 and July 2020. According to Twitter, the days following have grown by 23% since 2019. Due to this exponential growth of its use, non-profit organizations had a chance to showcase their marketing ideas. Some ways can help your non-profit company to connect to another level with more of your associates. These include;

The right time to post on social media
Most marketing companies that use online marketing have researched the best time to post your content on different apps. Each platform has its own time for posting. The time when users are more active determines when to post your content.

The most efficient time to post on Facebook was at 11 am and between 1 and 2 pm on Wednesdays. The COVID-19 pandemic changed these times to 11 am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Pre-Covid, Wednesdays at 11 am, and Fridays between 10 and 11 am were the preferable times to post on Instagram. This changed to Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays at 11 am and Tuesdays at 2 pm. it’s also suitable to post on weekends provided it’s between 9 am to 5 am.

The best time to post on Twitter was on Wednesdays and Fridays at 9 am, but this wasn’t significantly affected by the pandemic only that there’s more engagement starting from 7 am.
