On Sunday afternoons, I sit down and plan out my posts for my church for the week. I follow the same basic pattern each week, but add important announcements for upcoming events. My full-time job is stay-at-home-mom for 3 young kids, so I have to use scheduling tools to make sure my Facebook posts go out at peak times. Facebook has provided some clear instructions for scheduling posts. There are also some great tips for using scheduling effectively.
I am starting to set a regular weekly schedule of posts for my church. I hope this will help me speed up the process of creating posts, and also allow our followers to know what to expect. Our congregation seems to be most active on Facebook on weekday evenings, Saturday mornings, and Sunday afternoons. I try to post at these times, so our news is at the top of their “newsfeed” when they log-in.
