Are you tired of posting inconsistently and not seeing the engagement and results you desire?

LinkedIn has become the go-to platform for individuals and businesses looking to make meaningful connections, showcase their skills and expertise, and drive professional growth. But, with 300 million active users vying for attention every month, standing out on the platform can feel like an uphill battle.

Native scheduling on LinkedIn offers a basic level of convenience, allowing you to plan and publish your posts directly within the platform. But, as your LinkedIn presence evolves and your goals become more ambitious, you may find yourself craving more advanced features to fine-tune your strategy.

Can You Schedule LinkedIn Posts?

Yes, you can create and schedule LinkedIn posts in advance to post them on your profile and company page at a suitable time.

LinkedIn introduced native scheduling of posts on November 24, 2022. The feature is currently available on desktop and Android, with iOS support coming soon.

Super or content admin of a LinkedIn Company Page can even schedule a post or newsletter article.

You can schedule a post between an hour or three months in advance.

Note that you cannot schedule LinkedIn posts of the following types:

  • Events
  • Jobs
  • Services
  • Polls
  • Reshares
  • Posts to groups
  • Multi-Image Posts

However, LinkedIn does not support bulk scheduling of posts on both personal profiles and company pages. However, social media management tools like Statusbrew offer bulk scheduling and a range of other advanced features to make your LinkedIn scheduling task easy.

Here's an apples-to-apples comparison between the native scheduling of LinkedIn posts vs. through a social media management tool.

Schedule Your LinkedIn Posts

Why Should You Schedule LinkedIn Posts?

There are several reasons why it's important to plan and schedule your LinkedIn post in advance. You can publish content at times when your audience will see them and not just during random hours.

By planning ahead, you can also ensure that there is a good variety of topics being published and covered over time.

Let's tackle the benefits of scheduling LinkedIn posts in detail:

Saves Time

This is one of the clear benefits of scheduling LinkedIn posts: You save time!

You are probably a busy professional handling several tasks throughout the day. When you schedule LinkedIn posts in advance, you get that time back to do more pressing matters.

Create Content In Batch

LinkedIn scheduling allows you to create a batch of your posts to go out for the month (or even more).

Creating content in a batch is an efficient way of staying consistent on LinkedIn while also getting your other tasks done.

You can start by setting aside some time to think about this and create the content you want to post for the week or month.

This post can include anything from images, videos, and plain text to any content you feel represents your brand well, and your audience will resonate with.

Scour other LinkedIn posts in your industry to find good inspiration and find out what's working for other people.

Once you have created all your content, you can now add them to your LinkedIn content calendar for them to go out on the desired dates and times.


Optimize Your Posting Schedule

Not all posting times work the same on LinkedIn. The time at which you post will heavily affect your engagement rate. Hence to stand the best chance of getting your post seen, you should post at your best times.

You will want to research the peak hours to post your content so that you get as many eyeballs as possible.

This is especially important if you are doing a Call-to-Action post and want people to opt into something such as a lead magnet, call, or sign-up form.

According to our research, the best time to post on LinkedIn is from 9 AM to 5 PM, and the best days to post are Wednesdays and Thursdays. The worst time to post on LinkedIn is on weekends or outside of business hours.

But it's essential to research your industry's best times and get an idea of when your audience is most active on the platform.


Boosts Engagement

Engagement is one of the most desired social media goals as a whole.

Instead of "guessing" what to post, you should search through the most viral content in your niche. Researching winning posts in your industry and using similar post ideas will help you increase your engagement.

Adds Flexibility And Reduces The Effort

Because of the time you save from scheduling LinkedIn posts, you will have more time to spend on the creative side. This also brings flexibility to your content because you never know when another post idea may inspire you.

On top of that, it's less effort. Sure, you will have to create content in bulk at first, but you can always make changes to your content calendar for future posts. Eventually, you can also sit back and engage with your audience throughout the month as your posts go up automatically.

Builds Brand Consistency

People love it when their favorite brands are consistent on social media. Think of your favorite Netflix show. The consistency of episodes turns you from a viewer to a fan.

Think about it:

When your target audience expects you to always post on Thursday at noon, they will look forward to your posts throughout the week. And this will benefit you in growing your audience and influence on LinkedIn.

Consistency doesn't always have to be with a specific time. Constantly being present in front of your audience builds a reputable brand over time.

By increasing the amount of content going out on your profile, business page(s), and groups - you will be able to create a better and stronger network.

This can help you build a better brand when it comes to establishing yourself as an industry leader too!

Best Practices For Scheduling LinkedIn Posts

Post At Your Best Times

Scheduling your LinkedIn posts for when your audience is online is the best strategy to ensure people see them. Since people are using LinkedIn at work, the best time to post is while they are at work.

If your LinkedIn audience resides in different time zones, you will have to adjust your posting times. This way, you will ensure that every person who follows you stands a good chance of seeing at least some of your posts.

Use Analytics

The suggested posting times are average. They may not be your ideal times to schedule LinkedIn posts for your audience. For instance, some say that around 8 PM is the best time to reach decision-makers.

Since executives have long and busy days, they are still catching up on emails and other matters, even in the evening. They don't have time to check social media until they are at home.

Then what is the best way to find your audience's sweet spot? Analyze your past posts to see how well they performed.


You can use LinkedIn's built-in analytics to see which of your past posts are most effective. Sort your posts by top engagement rate, impressions, clicks, or reactions. Then, analyze if there are any trends in post type or posting times. LinkedIn analytics only shows the post date, so you will have to keep records of the times you post.

However, there's an easy way to figure out your best times without much hassle. Statusbrew's Report prepares a heatmap based on the performance of your previous post. You can hover over the heatmap to find the exact timings.

Know When To Stop

Automation tools can be helpful in carrying out repetitive tasks. They can help you save time when responding to comments and messages and schedule your LinkedIn post in advance.

But you should always use them in moderation, as LinkedIn takes a dim view of such tools. You run the risk of your account being restricted on the platform if you rely too much on automation.

Use An Integrated Social Media Strategy

Most likely, LinkedIn isn't the only social platform you are using in your digital marketing strategy.

LinkedIn is just one part of the larger puzzle. You might have other networks such as Facebook, Instagram & Twitter in your strategy as well. And you will be optimizing your posting schedule across all platforms. But, it can get confusing when you have data from several different platforms.

As an integrated social media marketing platform, Statusbrew helps you schedule content for several social platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Pinterest. So you can get the most out of your social media by managing tasks from one central dashboard.


Wrapping Up

Scheduling your LinkedIn posts is a great strategy to maximize engagement and achieve a consistent posting pattern on the platform.

While native scheduling on LinkedIn offers convenience, advanced tools like Statusbrew provide a range of features and analytics to optimize your posting strategy.

It is surely a life-saver tool for social media managers and marketers to promote your brand and grow your sales.
