With over one billion monthly users (and counting!) TikTok is great for reaching new audiences. But without a TikTok scheduler, it can be difficult to consistently post content that resonates with your ideal customer.

With Later’s TikTok Scheduling tool, you can streamline your workload, save time, and schedule your TikToks in advance. 

And the best part? It’s available on all new paid plans — plus, our free plan. Keep scrolling to learn how to level-up your TikTok strategy.  

Why Should You Schedule Your TikTok Videos?

Social media is all about building community — and the key to creating a community on TikTok is being consistent. 

But without a solid plan, you can find yourself spending a lot of time and energy creating last-minute videos.

How to Schedule TikTok Videos with Later

Scheduling your TikTok videos with Later can be done in five easy steps — you’ll be posting in no time!

Step #1: Add Your TikTok Profile to Your Later Account

Adding your TikTok profile to your Later account is a quick and easy process. 

In Calendar View, add your TikTok Profile by clicking the plus (+) sign at the top of the page:

And voila, you can now schedule your videos!

Step #2: Choose a Video to Post to TikTok

Drag and drop content from your Media Library to your calendar:

TIP: Save time by scheduling to multiple profiles at once with a multi-profile post.

Step #3: Crop and Trim your Video for TikTok

TikTok videos can be up to 60 seconds long, and we recommend an aspect ratio of 9:16 (similar to a mobile phone screen). This way, your TikToks will be optimized for optimal viewing. 

To crop your video size, tap “Edit” and select the TikTok crop. 

To adjust the length of your video, select the “Trim” tool.

Step #4: Add a Caption and Hashtags

Write your caption and include strategic hashtags to maximize your post’s reach. 

Hit “Save” and your post will be scheduled for your chosen time.

Step #5: Post Your TikTok

When it’s time to post, you’ll receive a notification through Later’s mobile app. 

Not using the mobile app yet? Download it on iOS or Android to get started.

Next, click the notification to open the Later app. Your TikTok video will automatically save to your camera roll, and the caption will copy to your clipboard.

Step #6 (Bonus): Add Links to Your TikTok Bio

When you schedule your videos in advance, you can also leverage Later’s TikTok Linkin.bio tool.

With the Linkin.bio tool, your TikTok feed will become a clickable, mobile-optimized landing page — allowing you to attach a specific link to each of your scheduled videos. 

This way, you can drive followers to web pages, event sign-ups, blog posts, or longform video content.
