There is a lot of controversy floating around the internet if you should or should not schedule your posts. Today, I am going to tell you a couple of reasons why you should consider scheduling your social media posts.
1. Save Time
The very first reason to consider scheduling your social media posts is that you gonna have more free time. Yeah! Free time! Time for sleeping, cleaning, etc. No, not that fast! Use the extra time that you save to engage more with your prospective clients in your social networks. That way it is a win-win: You save time posting and can instead engage more with your social networks. You can also use that time to work on client work or you can work on your business in order to get it more seen and to get more clients.
2. More Consistency
The second reason to consider scheduling your social media posts is that you will be more consistent. You will be more consistent with your posts because you can schedule them to go out every day, maybe even at the same time. Look first what is your “perfect time” for your the post to go out in each social network. Then, schedule them at your ideal times. More people will see your posts and you may get more clients!
Also, you need to be consistent in your branding. Being consistent in your brand colors, your fonts, your logo, your message that you’re sharing with the social networks and your prospective clients, is so important! People will recognize immediately if it is you.
3. Execute Your Social Media Marketing Strategy
The last reason to schedule your social media marketing posts is that you can actually implement your social media marketing strategy. You can plan ahead and achieve the goals you have set up for each of your social networks. It is so important to stay on your strategy, to have one, and to keep always your goal in mind.
