If you’re a business owner or just looking to connect with new people in your specific niche, LinkedIn is the social media platform to be on. It’s a great place to make new connections in your field and also learn new tips and tricks to be better at the work you currently do. And for a business or brand, LinkedIn is one of the best ways to build your brand and expand your network at the same time.
But who has the time to post on there consistently every single day? Not a lot of people! That’s where scheduling your LinkedIn posts comes in handy. Today we’re going to teach you everything you need to know about scheduling on LinkedIn with tips and tricks to help you get started.

  1. Can you schedule posts on LinkedIn?

Can you schedule posts on LinkedIn?

Yes, yes you can! There are a few ways you can post to LinkedIn—through LinkedIn’s own platform or by using a third-party social media management tool (like Flick!) to schedule all of your content in advance.

Why is it important to schedule LinkedIn content?

For the same reason, it’s important to schedule any social media content—consistency and streamlining your workflow! The reason people follow businesses and brands online is because they know they’ll get consistent content from them that they love. If you’re not going to be posting on a regular schedule, there’s not a lot of reason for people to want to click that “follow” button.
By scheduling content in advance, you can ensure you’re posting content consistently and at a time when your audience is online to engage. No more posting last minute or forgetting to post at all when you have all of your content scheduled.

Does LinkedIn have a scheduling tool?

It does! You can now schedule your content in LinkedIn’s native platform.
You can also connect your LinkedIn account to a third-party social media management app, that way you can have access to all of your social media platforms in one spot.

How to schedule posts on LinkedIn

With LinkedIn’s own scheduling platform, you can easily schedule your content. Although there are limitations inside LinkedIn’s scheduler compared to a third-party scheduler. However, if you’re looking into how to schedule natively, here’s how to do that:

Log in to your LinkedIn account and start creating your content

Once you log in, it’s time to start creating your content. Type out your post, add all the hashtags you need, include a photo or link—you know, everything you need to create a post

Click the clock icon next to the “Post” button

Now that your post is created, click the clock button that sits right next to the Post button. This is the scheduling button!

Select the time and date you want your post to go live

Figure out what time you want the piece of content to be scheduled and click “next.”

Hit the schedule button

Honestly, that’s it. Your content is officially scheduled out!

How to edit scheduled posts on LinkedIn

This isn’t the easiest part to do. If you want to edit your current LinkedIn posts that you’ve scheduled, you need to go to the post creator again, act like you’re about to make a post but instead click the clock icon again.
From here, you’ll click “see scheduled posts” and you’ll get a list of all the posts you have scheduled in advance.
You can delete scheduled posts but you cannot edit a scheduled post on LinkedIn (however, you can do this in Flick!).

Flick’s tip: Don’t quite have all the content or information you need to schedule the post? That’s okay! Save your idea as a draft for you to go back to later.

Put together a content calendar

Having a content calendar that is one of the best ways to make sure you’re sharing and making content that is valuable and relevant for your audience on a consistent basis.

Use your analytics

Want your content to be engaged with? You need to start looking at your analytics and figuring out exactly what your audience likes! LinkedIn allows you to view things such as demographics, engagement on posts, growth metrics, and more so use them to the best of your ability! Is there a certain post that seems to be doing a lot better than others? Look into recreating that content for future posts. Are most of your audience based in one place or different places? Make sure to start posting in their time zone so you can get the most engagement from your posts. Your LinkedIn analytics will have all this information and more so you can start making more informed decisions on your LinkedIn content.
