Maybe I'm a little slow on the uptake, but seriously, where have Facebook scheduled posts been my whole life?! I'm usually very business savvy & when it comes to all of the latest trending topics, I'm one of the first to be in-the-know. Not. this. time.
I figured since my Instagram account was linked to my Twitter, Tumblr, & Facebook fan page that would suffice for my photo uploads. DON'T FIGURE THAT. Do both. I re-arranged my Monday mornings to schedule my Facebook fan page posts for the entire week & it only takes me 10 minutes! This makes life so much easier than fumbling through my phone photos to find an old product to make relevant again. Now I just go straight to my photo album on my computer, select the photos I want relevant for the week & voila!
My advice: Schedule your posts for totally random times throughout the week for the first couple weeks & see what times receive the most interaction & keep scheduling for those times. For instance, one of my best times to schedule a post is Monday morning at 6 a.m. since so many hard working parent's (because that is my target market being that I design/make/sell baby, toddler, kid, & adult clothing & accessories) in the United States (my largest market) are normally scrolling their feed over a cup of coffee at this time.
My products are also extremely popular in Australia (Sydney being in my top 10 cities that most view & purchase from my shops), Canada, & the UK, so I schedule posts according to their time zones as well. Once you have your target audience narrowed down it should be very easy to figure out their Facebook habits & schedule away! It's SO easy!
HOW TO DO IT:
1.) Start creating your post at the top of your Page's Timeline.
2.) Click next to Publish.
3.) Select Schedule Post.
4.) Choose the date and time you want the post to be published.
5.) Click Schedule.
