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.
For example, let's say on October 16th you are working on creating posts for Instagram. You make 11 posts on Instagram. These first 11 posts should give you the best results, as long as you are creating good posts. Then you decided that you wanted to add more posts instead of just 11. Every post you make after 11 will get lower results. So, your 12th post will get lower results than your 11th post, but it will get higher results compared to your 13th post. Each post's results slowly lower the closer you get to the high number. Once you reach the high number, then every additional post will be severely reduced.
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.
