Thursday's Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts

By: Heather Hart

As authors, social media can take up quite a bit of our time that might be better spent doing other marketing or writing activities. One way I have found to combat the time I spend on social media is by taking one day a week to pre-schedule some of my facebook posts. In this tutorial, I’ll share some benefits of bulk scheduling as well as how to schedule your posts, and how to choose the best time to schedule your posts for maximum exposure.

Are you ready?

Why Pre-Schedule Facebook Posts?

Obviously, I already mentioned that it can save you a ton of time. I have found that by setting aside a 30-45 minutes once a week, I can save myself hours of wasted time later on. What I do is schedule 1-2 posts a day, then I only have to check in to see if I have any comments, or post new things that come up. It keeps me present without sucking all of my time. It also allows me to do all of my brainstorming at once. This way, I’m not trying to think of something to say or share each day.

Scheduling posts allows you to maintain an online presence, even if you take a day off.
