Step 4: Post Planner
We start with the Nr. 1 box.
You can choose in what category you want to create posts.
I would put all sort of posts about those topics in general, but if I would like to post about a new crochet doll, that I would create that post in News.
If I were to have a sale on my origami kusudamas I would create a post in Promotions and if I would like to know what yoga mat you love to use, I would crate that post in Questions.
I also like every Wednesday to post about my new blog post, so I would create a new Category that would have Blog Posts as name and create those posts there.
In the New Category tab you have the following options. You can choose what name you want it to have, where to post you, on what social media platforms, if the posts should repeat themselves or not and the status, draft or approved.
If you let it as Draft than you will have to manually approve every post from this category. If you go for Approved than your posts will be scheduled and ready to be posted.
In the Nr. 2
The posts that are in Drafts are the posts that are waiting for approval. In order to approve a post, all you have to do is click on that checkbox. You can also edit the post, copy or delete.
The one from the Schedule tab are the ones that are waiting to be published. And the ones from the Publish tab are the ones that are already making waves on your profiles.
If some post had a great success and you want to have the same post again, you can copy it from this tab.
The Timings tab is a really important one, as here is where you select in what days and at what hours your posts are going to go live. You first have to choose on what days you want to post.
I like to post every day. Then you have to choose what hours you want to post by clicking the Add time button where who choose what hours you want to post in the days you selected.
That means that if you want to post 5 times every day, you are going to add five times and choose the hours you want, but you will also have every day selected.
And at the end, you just have to click the Save button and your posts are going to be published according to your settings.
What’s important to remember is that if you are not choosing a time and only a day, your posts will not be published as they will not know when they are supposed to.
