This article looks at ways you can easily create beautiful posts, how to add users so you don’t have to do all the hard work and also how you can schedule these posts.

How to DESIGN stylish posts

(without being a designer)

Put simply, if you haven’t used Canva or Visme then you really need to look at these tools today.

Using Canva

https://www.canva.com
This is a great templating tool and photo editor, the free version allows you to create simple posts selecting backgrounds, text and you can upload your branding. Canva is a freemium tool which means that you only pay for premium features.
This following picture/post took me about 5 mins and most of that was uploading our logo.

 

Using Visme

You can use Visme for creating great posts and infographics. Again this is another free tool with a freemium model.
Visme, https://www.visme.co/
This site has heaps of templates that you can just adapt to your own style. You may want to pay for a subscription on this one as it will add Visme branding on all free resources.

These tools are so fun and easy to use you will spend hours playing around with them. It’s a great way to design a few posts and then schedule these to post each week.

Using the Design Wizard

Design Wizard is a creative tool for designing graphics for your social media feed. Design Wizard does offer a free version and a premium version for a low $9.99 per month.

How to schedule/create draft posts (to save you so much TIME)

  • Scheduling on Facebook pages is easy, simply head over to your page and find where it says to “write something…”.
  • Add all the details about your post, text, photos, URL’s, etc. Then, DON’T click Publish but click the little arrow to the right.
  • This will bring up a menu that allows you to “Schedule” a time for the post to be shared, “Backdate” the post if you need to post on a previous day or save your post as a draft, “Save Draft”.

  • So click Schedule, now you will see another window that allows you to select a date and time and select Schedule for the post to be scheduled.
  • For the ideal time to post head over to our article about Customising your new Facebook Page, and look for the insights section.

 

 

Adding users and page admins (so others can post & edit)

Our last piece of information today is how to add and remove users from your Page. Having users makes it easier to post more as you have more users that can share posts on your Facebook Page. There are 6 different page roles, which are explained in detail down below.

Page Role 1 – Admin:

They can: send messages and publish as the Page, respond to and delete comments on the Page, create ads, see which admin created a post or comment, view insights, respond to and delete Instagram comments from the Page, edit Instagram account details from the Page and assign Page roles.
