Creating Social Media Posting Queues
The Buzzlogix social media tool was built to save social media specialists and managers time and energy. With the recent launch of our easy-to-use social media management and monitoring app for both iPhone and Android, we are continuing the theme of TIME-SAVING. We’re all about creating efficiency and developing features to help your team while you focus on developing your social media strategies and marketing plans. Today, we are excited to announce our latest time-saving feature: POSTING QUEUES. As you develop your content calendar for your social media channels, the appropriate timing of these posts must considered. As you continue to post and as your following grows, you’ll begin notice trends in your audience’s engagement and behavior. Using posting queues will enable you to schedule your most engaging content at the most popular times for your audience without having to manually enter post times. We recommend reviewing our social media scheduling blog post to get a refresher course on using our calendars.
Find Peak Activity Times
If you’re just getting started on social media and are unsure of the best times to post, here’s a great blog post on where to start. If you’ve already generated followers on social media, reference your Buzzlogix dashboard to search for peak activity in mentions of your brand. Buzzlogix analytics can share insight about mentions of you brand, industry, or competition over time. Use these analytics to help configure posting times for your channels.
Facebook and Twitter analytics can also share some details about days and times your audience is online and when they are most likely to engage with your profile.
How to Configure a Posting Queue (step-by-step)
First, navigate from your main dashboard view to the POSTING tab under Manage & Engage.
Scroll down to your post calendar and select POSTING QUEUES. Select CREATE A QUEUE.
Configure your queue by giving it a name and a brief description. In our example, we are targeting our latest post at our millennial audience. Make sure to set your queue to active if you’re ready to start posting.
