Social media scheduling doesn’t only save time but it can also garner more followers! In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of scheduling posts via publishing tools and tips on increasing followers after a post goes live.
Why Schedule Social Media Posts
A whole month’s social media copy can be completed in a few hours with the help of a social media scheduling tool. Social media scheduling tools make keeping a regular social posting easy: write a copy, choose images to go with it, select the best times to post on each platform, and schedule the posts. That’s it!
A publishing tool can be used to schedule social media posts on all major social media platforms. We at Xanda use Creator Studio, a free scheduling tool by Facebook which can be used to schedule posts for both Facebook and Instagram. Another tool we use is Hootsuite which also allows you to schedule posts on all major social platforms including Twitter and LinkedIn. Read more about the top social media schedulers here.
