Post When Your Followers Are Engaged
Publishing at random times, crossing your fingers and hoping people see it isn’t a wise strategy.

Monitor & Listen to Conversations About Your Brand on Social
Whether you’re active on social or not, your customers are likely talking about your brand or industry on Twitter, Facebook or other networks. Social media is people’s top choice for customer care.
Unfortunately, many brand miss out on these conversations either because they don’t have a monitoring tool or just aren’t making it a priority. That’s why 89% of social media messages to brands go ignored.
With Sprout, you can reduce the amount of missed messages by actively monitoring all mentions of your brand, whether you’re tagged or not.
