You can quickly and easily schedule posts by grouping publications that will use the same profiles and other settings into Post Presets with Social Report.
This will not only help you keep your calendar organized, but will also give you great reporting on your content strategy.
In this article, we'll review:
Creating a Post Preset
There are two main ways of creating your Post Presets:
Method 1 : From the Post Presets page
Head to Publishing > All Post Presets
Click on New Post Preset on the top right
In your Post Preset setup, you can give your Post Preset a name, select which profiles to publish to when scheduling posts with this preset, as well as select a color for posts with this preset to show up on the color with.
Method 2: When scheduling a new post
Begin writing a new post from the Publishing menu
Select Create a new post preset
You'll also need to give your Post Preset a name & select which profiles to publish to when scheduling posts with this preset.
Post Preset Strategies
Post Presets can be an important tool to use with your content strategy. Here are a few best practices to keep in mind.
When scheduling posts to different networks at the same time
In this example, if you're planning to publish your posts to multiple profiles at the same time you would benefit from creating category or topic based Post Preset.
In this example, we have three main Presets (Blog Posts, Testimonial Videos and Funny Memes). They each have their own posting schedules, however all profiles get the same post at the same time.
If you want to learn more about posting schedules, check out our guide.
When scheduling posts to different networks at different times
If you have different categories, but want to ensure each network has a post in its own optimal time than you'd benefit from this Post Preset strategy.
In this example, we have two main categories of posts: Funny Memes and Blog posts. However, we've separated the Post Presets so that each network has it's own preset.
This allows us to ensure we use a unique posting schedule when scheduling our blog posts to Facebook as opposed to when we schedule blog posts to Twitter.
Post Preset Performance
Once you've had time to publish posts with t Post Presets for a week or two, you're ready to review their performance and analyze your current posting strategy.
You can review your content performance report by heading to Publish > Content Performance
You'll see a few different reports, but let's focus on Post Preset Totals.
Here you'll find a report outlining how often you've published to each Preset. Breaking down your metrics by average clicks and engagement per post will really help you understand your content strategy's performance.
More importantly, if you've setup conversion tracking, you'll be able to understand which preset is driving more conversions
This really could be one of the most important reports for you to review or send to your clients as it sums up how your social media strategy has translated to sales. If you want to learn more about conversion tracking, check our our guide.
That's it! Now it's time for you to start scheduling your posts, organizing your content strategy and analyzing its performance!
