Automate posts on Facebook with Circleboom

In today’s world, social media is a must-have marketing tool for practically any company or individual. Still, we all know that creating and managing social media content consumes time. So, it is necessary to know how to automate Facebook posts in 2022 to stay ahead of the competition.

Regarding marketing and growing your business or personal brand awareness, Facebook is a fertile land. As of 2021, Facebook has almost 3 billion active users throughout the world. This is exactly where you want to promote your products and services, isn’t it? If you are saying yes, most people apparently agree with you. Again as of 2021, Facebook’s worldwide advertising revenue is about 115 billion dollars.

When you’re starting a business or an individual campaign, you may have lots of work to do, and promotions on social media can easily be forgotten. Or, you think you have more important priorities and you can postpone social media for an unknown future. This, however, does not have to be the case.

Automation on social media isn’t simply a trend. It’s a feature that allows large and small organizations and individuals to regularly generate, manage, and post social media content. In the coming sentences, we’ll show you how to schedule and automate Facebook content, so you don’t have to worry about your social media marketing.

Before we proceed, we should remind you that scheduling on your Facebook profile is not possible. You can only automate posts on Facebook pages and Facebook groups.

Why Do You Need to Automate Facebook Posts?

1- To be on track

Managing a business or an individual account is a lot of work. Even though you know how important social media is, it can quickly go to the bottom of your to-do list. Unfortunately, one post every week isn’t enough in the digital era. You must post on a regular basis. Without spending all of your time on Facebook, social media automation is your key to consistency.

Facebook pages and Facebook groups are where you promote your products and services in an interactive way. Your followers and members will expect regular content, and you have to provide it in order to define a routine. The only way to achieve this is to automate posts on Facebook pages and Facebook groups. You can do it on Facebook itself or use a Facebook automation tool/software.

2- Target to Multiple Time Zones

Digital businesses like e-commerce stores or bloggers have a solid chance to get visitors from all over the United States, and they have the ability to reach audiences all over the world. You might be missing out on your potential customer who resides in Paris if you don’t post in the right time zone. Automation of Facebook posts gives you the opportunity to schedule your posts on Facebook pages and Facebook groups so you can sell your products while you are sleeping.

3- More Time to Spend on Other Works

Creating content for your Facebook pages and Facebook groups and getting engagements are profitable and exciting for a business or an individual, but you have other things to do to boost your sales, improve your workspace and enhance your productivity. I don’t even count your family, hobbies, etc.

Spending more time on each of these parties depends on how little time you spend on social media marketing. That’s why it is crucial to automate posts on Facebook pages and Facebook groups.

Now, you can proceed to our guide on how to automate Facebook posts on pages and groups.
