I am going to show you how to schedule tweets INSIDE the twitter interface. Yes, that is right. INSIDE twitter. For FREE!
I manage a few twitter accounts for various clients and there are 3 of them that I have to post photos on a weekly basis. 3 times per week to be exact. So that is 9 posts per week that require me uploading photos. I have tried various scheduling apps like Hootsuite, Buffer App, SproutSocial, and Post Planner. But the problem I was having was when scheduling photos it would give the photo a link with the apps link shortening extension. Hootsuite uses ow.ly. The problem there is most people will not click a link that is not pic.twitter.com.
Up till now I have been manually posting these photos at the designated time. As you can imagine it was quite frustrating to have to manually post these photos each time. Scheduling these in advance would have saved me TONS of time!
Well, I have found the solution, and I am going to share it with you today.
First thing you want to do is go to ads.twitter.com. You will need to sign into your account for twitter. There is no need for a credit card. There is no need to post a paid ad either. It is completely free to schedule your tweets inside the Twitter ad interface.
Once you are at ads.twitter.com then find the “Creatives” menu item and click and find “Tweets”. Here you will see all of your previously published tweets. Find the “Compose Tweet” button in the top right section. Now, just compose a tweet as normal. Once you have gotten your 140 characters just right, then click the “Scheduling” tab and choose the best time to schedule your tweet. Once you have chosen the your desired time, then just click “Schedule Tweet” at the bottom of the box and BAM! You have made your social media marketing more productive.
