When you use social media regularly, whether it be for business purposes, a marketing agenda, or even just for personal use, your work load can pile up pretty quickly. As such, the ability to bulk schedule posts ahead of time can be extremely beneficial.
Not only does scheduled posting save you time and energy, but it can also help ensure you are consistently posting fresh content and enable you to reach more eyes and therefore, more clients or customers. However, it’s not always as simple as the click of a button. Many platforms don’t even provide a scheduling option and require the assistance of a third-party social media management service.
Facebook is one of the few platforms that provide you with this ability, but it’s not available to everyone. In this post, we’ll show you a couple of different ways for how to go about scheduling Facebook posts.
Facebook does provide users with the ability to schedule posts ahead of time, but only for those with business accounts. Unfortunately, personal accounts are not able to benefit from this feature.
This is true for those looking to schedule posts through both Facebook and other third-party social media scheduling tools like Kiopi. So, if you already have a business account set up, you’re in luck!
If you don’t yet have a Facebook business page but would like to create one, simply click this link https://www.facebook.com/pages/create and follow the instructions provided for you. Once you’ve created your page, you’re ready to learn how to schedule your social posts.
There are a couple of different ways you can schedule your Facebook posts: one way is via Facebook’s Business Suite and the other is through a third-party scheduling software such as Kiopi. Below, we’ll take you through the steps of scheduled posting from both approaches.
To schedule posts via Facebook Business Suite, begin by opening the page to your timeline. From there, follow these simple steps:
That’s it! Your post is now scheduled in the queue and ready to go (at the appropriate time and day, of course).
If you’re looking for another route to schedule your interactive Facebook posts—and your Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and GMB, might we add— Kiopi is a great alternative.
In addition to scheduling posts far ahead of time, you’ll also have access to useful tools such as a social media content calendar, a social media analytics dashboard, and a social media campaign management feature, among others.
To begin, log in to your Kiopi account. (If you have not created an account yet, check out our Kiopi FAQ page for helpful tips on how to get started, including how to add users and clients and connect social media accounts.) Once you’re logged in, you should be immediately directed to your home dashboard. From there, simply follow the steps provided below:
Once you schedule your post, let Kiopi take it from here. We’ll make sure your post is pushed live at the precise date and time you selected. It really is that simple!
If you’ve already scheduled your post but realize you’d like to make an edit before it goes out, reschedule the publishing date, or delete the post altogether, don’t fret! There is a way to do this through both Facebook’s Business Suite and Kiopi’s scheduling tool. We’ll provide instructions for both below.
