I get asked the question, “Should I schedule my posts on Social Media” all the time.

I always say, “Yes”.

2. You can reach your audience at peak times. 

Scheduling at peak times give you the freedom of posting when your not available. Example one of my peak times is a 11pm ET.  I’m simply unable to post at 11pm every night manually.  Scheduling at peak times assures you that you will be there when your audience is.

3. It helps with brand consistency.

No doubt if you are posting on all the platforms with daily consistency your brand will get noticed.
