How to: Schedule Posts using HootSuite

There may be times when you are not able to post to social media. Well, I am happy to report, that all you have to do is schedule your messages using HootSuite.  I am sure there are many tools that will allow you to schedule messages to social media, but I use HootSuite and I would recommend it.

First, you must create a HootSuite account, there is a free and a paid account available.

When you compose a new message, you need to select the social media platform(s) you would like to post to. This is displayed on the left side of your screen.  Your social media platforms will appear in a drop down list box.

Once your selected your social media platforms, you must compose your message.  This is your post.  When your message is complete, then click on the calendar icon.   This will allow you to setup the schedule of when you would like your post to be published.

You can setup individual messages, or you can setup bulk messages.  In addition, an email notification can be sent to you when the message was posted.  Enjoy!
