When is the last time you posted on your Facebook Page? Do you have tons of social media ideas but fail to post regularly?

Whether you use them for passive income or to drive traffic to your business, Facebook Pages are fun to create and have huge potential for monetization. Facebook is the most visited website out there, and 74 percent of consumers rely on social media to make purchasing decisions. You know an online presence and Facebook Pages are crucial to selling, but all too often social media strategies fall to the wayside.

It’s easy to put social media on the back burner while you tend to everything else, which is why scheduling your content is essential to building your Facebook Page empire. Scheduling posts to your Facebook Pages has several benefits, from saving you time to earning more money.

5 Ways Scheduling Social Media Makes Your Life Easier

Maintaining a frequent presence online is important, but how can you simplify the process of updating your Facebook Pages? Scheduling content makes your life easier in the following ways:

1. Scheduling saves you time.

It’s easy to get sucked into the depths of Facebook when you’re looking for content to share on your Page at any given time of day. If you batch your time, you can schedule days’ and weeks’ worth of posts in one quick sitting. It’s the “Work smarter, not harder” philosophy. Cutting out time to schedule your posts means you’ll have less distractions as you go about your day and your work.

2. Scheduling provides virtual consistency while you’re offline.

If you’re traveling or you suddenly get sick and can’t think about updating your Facebook Page, a scheduling tool keeps your online presence alive while you’re out. If you can’t physically keep up with your content, you can relax knowing it’s being taken care of.

3. Scheduling at the right time drives more traffic.

Using a scheduling tool allows you to reach your audience when they’re online. You can schedule your posts so they’re more likely to be seen, driving more traffic to your Page.

4. Scheduling allows you to capitalize on important dates for your niche.

You won’t miss out on dates that are significant for your niche if you plan your content ahead of time. Taking a look at the significant dates ahead or looking at a calendar for weird holidays and national observances allows you to prepare posts centered around those dates that your fans will love sharing.

5. Scheduling gives your Facebook Page a good reputation.

If you have a schedule you stick to, your followers are more likely to trust your Page or your brand. They don’t like to come to your Facebook Page and see that you haven’t posted in weeks. They’ll appreciate that you’re keeping them up to date on new products or trends in your niche.

To sum up, scheduling your social media frees you up to tend to other important aspects of your life. Maintaining a consistent posting schedule creates a reliable reputation among your followers. Save yourself some time and keep your Facebook Pages active with a scheduling tool.

New to FPTraffic and ready to start building your Facebook Page empire?

Social media is changing the way people do business and make money, and Facebook Pages provide a huge avenue for sales. In fact, over a billion people use Facebook every single day.

Building, growing and monetizing Facebook Pages comes easy with the help of a simple management tool. If you’ve just joined our FPTraffic community, here are five tips to start managing your Pages and growing your fan base.

1. Remove Pages

When you first connect your Facebook account, FPTraffic displays all of the Facebook Pages you have created in your Pages Dashboard. You can remove any Pages you do not want on your account so that FPTraffic is only managing content for certain pages. From the Pages menu, click Manage. For each page you wish to delete, click the red X.

Remove Page from FPTraffic

Removing a Page does not delete the Page from your Facebook account, but keeps it from showing up on FPTraffic. You can always add Pages back after you have removed them from your account. Also, keep in mind that FPTraffic enables you to manage an unlimited number of Facebook Pages.

2. Set up a Post Schedule

One of the great features of FPTraffic is the ability to create a schedule that allows your content to post to your Facebook Pages automatically. Set up a schedule for each Facebook Page you want FPTraffic to post to. Your content will not show up on FPTraffic until you add a schedule, so complete this step first. Under the Pages menu, click Schedules. Select the Facebook Page you would like to set your schedule for. You’ll then be able to select the times you’d like your content to post to that Page.

FPTraffic Scheduled Times

Find when your fans are online most and set up your schedule to post at those times. FPTraffic will post to your Page at most once an hour every hour of the day. We recommend posting 2-5 times a day, but test your engagement by posting as many different times a day as you’d like.

3. Disregard “Posted by FPTraffic”

When FPTraffic publishes content on your Page, you will see the note Posted by FPTraffic under the post on Facebook. Don’t worry – visitors to your Page do not see this. It is only visible to you and any other Admin on your Page. Facebook places the text there so that you know which pieces of content FPT published.

4. Find content with the FPTraffic Google Chrome Extension

Use our Google Chrome Extension to easily schedule images from Pinterest, Twitter, Imgur and pretty much any other website with a few clicks of your mouse. The FPTraffic Chrome Extension is one of the best tools available for gathering and scheduling photos to post to your Facebook Pages.
