Scheduling your posts saves time. This is one of the main reasons why business owners and marketers should take advantage of scheduling. When you schedule your content in advance, this will give you more time to work on other responsibilities like engaging with customers and employees or focusing on important business needs.
Social Media Tip: You don’t need to post on social media every single day. Determine a frequency that works for you (we suggest 2-3 posts per week) and start there!
Create and Maintain a Cohesive Aesthetic
Your page’s aesthetic is one of the best ways to grow your account. It is also an excellent way to build brand recognition, so it is important that you create a cohesive Instagram aesthetic for your profile (Later Blog).
Scheduling will allow you to see the layout of how your posts will look next to previously posted content. This preview allows you to see what your followers will see in advance and make any revisions you think necessary.
Scheduling your content will grant you the ability to post at “peak” engagement days and times, even when you are unavailable (Later Blog). Scheduling tools are regularly updated to simplify the process further and now include options for scheduling stories and reels, in addition to regular posts.
Consistency is KEY when wishing to expand your audience. Posting content that encourages your followers to come back to your page is very important when looking to attract and retain followers. A great example would be if you are a restaurant that offers daily lunch specials – scheduling those posts to go out at the same time every day keeps your followers coming back (Lyons Marketing).
When done successfully, it is very likely that the algorithm will recognize your activity and show your audience more of your content.
Free Up Your Personal Time
Social media doesn’t sleep – but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to either! It is important to have (or try to have) a work-life balance and have the ability to step back and rest. Knowing your content is scheduled to go out without you have to manually do so is a great way to step away from your screen without worry.
There are many social media schedulers available! Here are a few:
