Let's take a look at the infographic that you can find in the instructions of the simulation. (Instructions on where to find this infographic will be at the end of this article.)
The low number should be the lowest amount of posts you should post per day for each platform.
The recommended number is the amount we suggest posting each day for each platform. The closer your results are to the recommended number the better.
The high number is the max amount of post you should post each day. As you add additional posts past the recommended number you will notice that your results for each post will be reduced. Once you get to the high number for each platform, you will notice that you will start getting severely reduced results for anything that passes the high number for that platform.
Let's say you are working on creating posts for Instagram. You make 5 posts on Instagram, all scheduled to be posted on October 16th. These first 2 posts should give you the best results, as long as you are creating good posts. The 3rd post will still do well, but the 4th and 5th posts will get even lower results. This is because the high end for number of posts a day for Instagram is 3. Once you reach the high number, then every additional post will get severely reduced results.
So, if you are getting poor results but are not sure why, one reason could be because of the number of posts you are posting per day for each platform. So take the time to look at your posts, and see if this is the case.
Where can I find the infographic?
When you are in a posting round (an odd-numbered round), click on the Posts tab found on the left side of the page. This is where you will go to create your posts.
Now click on the Instructions button found to the left of the date and time in the post creator.
Instructions should pop up. Inside the instructions click on the Frequency tab and then select the Post-Frequency Info-graphic button. This should open a new tab with the Infographic.
