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”.
