Why Schedule LinkedIn Posts in Advance?

Scheduling your LinkedIn posts is one of the best ways to streamline your content planning, and not to mention, it’s a huge time-saver.

Planning and scheduling your LinkedIn content ahead of time allows you to batch prep all of your posts in one super-productive session, establishing a consistent posting cadence.

Plus, Later’s LinkedIn scheduling tools are full of handy time-saving hacks. For example, you can quickly crop your images to the perfect aspect ratio for LinkedIn, and create “saved caption” templates to save your most commonly used hashtags.

How to Automatically Schedule LinkedIn Posts

Unlike other social platforms, users visit LinkedIn to specifically engage with business-related content — which is invaluable for brands or entrepreneurs looking to grow online.

By regularly scheduling posts and engaging in conversations, you can tap into a thriving professional network and generate leads for your business or brand.

In fact, a 2020 Hubspot study found that traffic from LinkedIn resulted in a higher visitor-to-lead conversion rate than traffic from Twitter or Facebook.

With Later, you can plan and schedule LinkedIn posts alongside all your other social media channels.

Later’s easy-to-use dashboard allows you to schedule to multiple social media platforms at once — Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, TikTok, and now LinkedIn — saving you valuable time and effort.

Plan, schedule, and monitor your social posts all in one place with Later — available on all new free and paid plans.
