We’ve discovered a great tool within Facebook Fan/Business pages that we thought we would shine some light on. Do you ever find it challenging to manage all of your social networks, constantly remembering to update them periodically? Now you don’t have to worry as much. You can schedule your Facebook wall posts for up to 6 months in the future. We think you should always engage your audience and not strictly rely on scheduled updates, but this is a great way to take some of the load off of your shoulders. After all, you have a business to run or a brand to promote.
Most of our clients are either artists or venues. We recommend the moment you have an event confirmed, go ahead and start scheduling weekly posts about the event, this way you don’t have to constantly remind your fan base about your up and coming events.
Here’s how you can apply this to your Facebook fan page. Instruction came directly from Facebook.
How do I schedule a post to appear on my Page later?
You can prepare a post and schedule it to appear later by adding a date and time in the future before you post it. You can schedule a post up to 6 months in advance in 15-minute intervals.

2. Click the icon in the lower-left of the sharing tool
3. Choose the future year, month, day, hour and minute when you’d like your post to appear
