Benefits of Scheduling Posts

Schedule your Facebook posts to be more efficient and obtain better results.  There are many benefits of scheduling your Facebook posts, compared with publishing it manually yourself.

Consistency & Quality
Planning ahead is always a good thing.  The best benefit of scheduling your Facebook posts is to ensuring you’re posting consistently and to maintaining quality in your posts.

Reach a Broader Audience
When you schedule posts, they will be published automatically at times you have chosen. Whether it’s 7am or 7pm, it will seem like you published it manually at that moment.  This ensures you are reaching various audiences checking Facebook at different times of the day.

Be Efficient
When taking time to schedule posts, you are able to focus your attention to the job at hand.  If you are posting at fleeting moments, you will become easily distracted.
