Facebook has over 2 billion active users every month. When it comes to making a purchase decision, 78% of those 2 billion people are influenced by posts they see on a business Facebook page. With numbers like that it’s easier to understand why creating a Facebook business page and having a strong online presence is valuable. We understand that you’re busy or you may not enjoy being on Facebook frequently, so in this piece we’re going to teach you how to schedule future Facebook post for your business.
Open your Facebook business page and when it loads select the “Posts” tab on the left side.
When the Posts page loads click the white box with, “Write a post…” written inside.
A popup will appear. This is where you create your post. Enter desired text and if you’re uploading a photo/video, simply select the box labeled, “Photo/Video”.
This will pull up a separate tab where you can choose how your photos will be displayed.
If you’re uploading a few pictures or videos, we suggest using the, “Upload Photos/Video” option at the top.
Once you’ve chosen a picture from your computer and uploaded to the post you will be taken back to this screen. Your photo will be displayed under the post text.
Now it’s time to schedule. On the bottom left of the popup will be a “Publish” button. Click the arrow to the right and select “Schedule”
A new popup will appear. Select the date and time you would like this post to be released then click “Schedule”.
We suggest releasing posts between 2-6pm.
There is no limit to how many posts you can schedule in advance. We have clients who schedule an entire month of posting in one afternoon. The important thing to remember is post consistency. Every time you’re on a job take pictures of your work. These photos can be used for social media posts and are great marketing tools that drive customers to your business.
