May 12, 2023 6 min read

If LinkedIn is where your business thrives, scheduling posts in advance will help you lighten your workload and keep your company active, even when you're not glued to your screen.

Wondering if you can plan ahead on LinkedIn? Absolutely! You've got two options: either use LinkedIn's native scheduling tool or opt for scheduling tools like Statusbrew. Stick around as we break down the steps of using each method so you can choose the best option for your business.

Can You Schedule A Post On LinkedIn?

Yes, you can create and schedule LinkedIn posts in advance to post them on your profile and company page at a suitable time. This includes scheduling a post between an hour or three months in advance. However, if you are the Super or content admin of a LinkedIn Company Page, you can even schedule a newsletter article.

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

  • Events
  • Jobs
  • Services
  • Reshares
  • 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. Statusbrew.
