Like all small business owners, you’re busy.
Which means finding the time to post on Facebook can often fall by the wayside.
And sporadic posting isn’t exactly the best way to go, especially when you’re trying to promote your business and connect with your fans.
But here’s some good news…
You can schedule Facebook posts ahead of time, right from your Facebook Page. Just find a chunk of time when you can create a few posts at once and schedule multiple posts in one go. No more forgetting!
Here’s how you do it:
Step 1: Create a new Facebook post
Write your Facebook post, just as you normally would. Include an image, link, and any relevant hashtags.
Step 2: Select the schedule button
Once your post is complete, click the drop-down next to the Publish button and select Schedule.
Step 3: Choose a publishing time
Enter the time and day you would like your post to publish. Your time must be at least 10 minutes in advance and no more than 6 months in the future. You can also choose a time when you want your post to stop showing in News Feed.
You can schedule your emails on Facebook too
For example, after sending an email through Constant Contact, we make it easy to share and schedule your email — so you can reach your Facebook fans, as well.
