In today‚Äôs information packed world, the timing of your message can mean everything. Want a Journalist‚Äôs attention? According to a¬†recent Business Wire poll, Tuesday mornings are¬†the optimal time to send a news release.
If you‚Äôve just written a new blog post for your readers, try publishing on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. According to Daily Blog Tips, these tend to be the best days for traffic.
Want to get retweeted? Try 16:00 ET on a Friday¬†according to Fastcompany.com.
With timing so relevant for these other mediums, it‚Äôs logical that there is also a best time to host meetings. According to Inc.com, people are more willing to accept meeting invites at 15:00 on Tuesdays. But if you‚Äôre hosting with participants across times zones, don‚Äôt send that meeting request just yet. Use PGi‚Äôs Global Meeting Planner¬†to synchronize meeting times across multiple time zones.
To use the Meeting Planner, simply select a country and city for the host and participant locations. Select ‚ÄúAdd Location‚Äù to view the time locally. You can send a meeting request to yourself from the Meeting Planner and then use that request to invite participants.
So before you schedule a lunch meeting with someone down under, check PGi‚Äôs Global Meeting Planner.¬† At noon in Atlanta, it‚Äôs only 2:00 in Australia. That‚Äôs a perfect time for a ‚Äúsave the earth‚Äù Public Service Announcement but certainly not your meeting.
