How to Schedule Facebook Posts to Save Time
Ever wonder how people have time to keep their Facebook pages for their businesses and organizations up-to-date?
With Facebook's Schedule option for posting, keeping your social media outreach to your followers is now a simple process.
Take one day a month to sit down for an hour and create content to post to a future date and time for your followers.
Why should I schedule Facebook posts ahead of time?
As a business owner, you probably have a lot of content to share—and not a lot of time to do it. Scheduling your Facebook updates in advance can save you time and hassle.
Benefits of scheduling your Facebook posts:
- Reach multiple time zones—Schedule Facebook posts in advance to reach audiences around the world.
- Improve consistency—Being consistent with your updates—how often you post and when—will tell your audience when to expect new content. Avoid pauses or sudden breaks in your social media schedule to help ensure maximum engagement.
- Build anticipation—Draw your audience towards a big event, announcement, or product launch. Scheduling multiple messages to promote an event is a great way to build anticipation.
- Future Promotions—Have a promotion or sale coming up? Create it now so you can work on the other tasks involved with your busy life.
