One of the problems with running your own business is that you are often too busy to manage your Facebook page.

The great thing about Facebook is that it has a built-in scheduler that allows you to plan your posts in advance. If you can find a block of time on one day, you can use it to plan several posts for the week.

Here is how to schedule your Facebook posts:

1. After typing your update, select the clock icon in the bottom left.

2. Select your year, month, day, hour and minute. The minute is optional if you want to post on the hour.

3. Press “Schedule”.

That’s it! Easy peasy.

If you want to see your scheduled posts at any time, click on “Edit Page’ in the top right corner of your page, and select “Use Activity Log”.
