Why should you use a Social Media Scheduling Tool?
Scheduling your Social Media can help free up a significant amount of time and can help ensure your daily Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn or Instagram posting is completed on time, every time. Fill up your calendar in advance and use your time to fulfil the rest of your day’s duties!
Most Social Media Scheduling Tools will accept a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file which holds all of the Social Media Post information to upload and start scheduling. The different tools have a different set of fields the need, the listing below should help you find the right fields, and any gotchas or things you need to be aware of.
If you want to display the preview of a link leave the Media fields empty and put the link in the Link Field. If you want to display the media and still have a link, put the link in the body of the content
Generate Social Media Posts
If you are interested in generating Social Media posts and exporting them in the correct CSV format for your Scheduling Tool check out Post Maker
When you are supplying Image or Media URLs, they usually need to be publicly accessible for the Social Media Tool to ingest it properly – if it’s behind a login or authentication then it will likely fail
Publer allows both links and media, and so far we haven’t hit any upload limits – great for postmaker fans!
Tips: If you are using the Label, you need to have slots available for that content Label
'Date', 'Message', 'Link', 'Media URLs', 'Title', 'Label'
SmarterQueue limits you to uploading 200 posts at a time, I don’t believe there is a total limit of scheduled posts.
The Evergreen field is SmarterQueue’s option of reposting again (Evergreen) or whether it is for a single use (Once)
