What you are doing currently to promote your business is one thing, but have you thought about setting things up for the future? For instance, Facebook offers users the possibility to schedule their posts in order to be published at a later date.
For businesses, scheduled updates offer the possibility to programme your marketing campaigns in a heartbeat. Let’s say that you already have all your strategies for the year set up and all you need to do now is implement them. You will save a lot of time if you write all the promotional materials in advance and just schedule them to be released at a later date, according to your campaign calendar.
There is also another advantage that you can draw from scheduled posts. For instance, you can create a buzz around a certain product or service in advance of it actually being launched. By inviting those in your database to visit your website at a certain date in order to grab a promotional offer, you will spark their attention and interest in advance of the launch, and you will have an audience ready and waiting for the actual launch of the product or service.
Besides saving time, scheduled posts allow you to be well organized, and when running a small business this is a very important advantage. As a small business owner, you are likely to have a small team who are working on lots of tasks and projects all at one time – so by scheduling your posts in advance for certain events you can help those people who are in charge of your social media marketing strategies to do their job more efficiently.
