So, you’ve produced all this awesome content for your Facebook business page and now you’re looking for the best way to ensure your page is constantly rolling out great content to your audience without having to think about it every single day! Well, you’re in luck. Facebook’s scheduling feature is just the thing you’re looking for and we’ll show you exactly how you can save time - and perhaps even your sanity. Here's our super straightforward, step-by-step guide to scheduling Facebook posts:
Log into your Facebook, navigate to your Facebook business page and click on Creator Studio.
Click on Create Post in the top left corner.
Drag your photo/video into the Create Post field, and write/paste your copy. Click Share now, and see posting options. Scheduling will allow the post to be published later.
Select the time & date of your choosing, and click Schedule!
Returning to the main screen of Creator Studio, you can click on your Content Library in the left hand panel. You can then select your post and Crosspost it to Instagram. This will post it directly to Instagram, and gives you the chance to alter the copy. Keep in mind that URLs do not work on Instagram posts, so you should remove them. Instagram is designed for use of hashtags too, so be sure to include some in your post!
After you’ve scheduled your Facebook posts, you may want to make some adjustments to the content, the schedule or simply remove a scheduled post altogether. To manage this, simply return to the Creator Studio Content Library and select the post you wish to alter.
That’s it! That’s everything you need to know about scheduling and managing your scheduled Facebook posts! To really make this work for you, we’d recommend spending a little time at the start of each week to schedule about 5 to 7 posts. This time frame will allow you to focus on other important things that come up during the week and also give you the flexibility to manage and adjust your posts in case you ever need to.
