It seems to be catching on and becoming more popular – pre-scheduling tweets on Twitter. Buy why would anyone want to do that? I think there are several good reasons why you might want to pre-schedule certain tweets to run at different times of the day.
- First, if you know that you’ll be making a certain offer at a specific time and you want that offer to be made available to everyone no matter where they are then you could pre-schedule your announcement to run at various times throughout the day so that anyone can see it no matter where they may be.
- I know a marketer who offers tips throughout the day on certain days of the week. These tweets are all pre-scheduled. Otherwise, he’d never get any work done on those days. This is actually a good way to manage your time.
- If you have promotional tweets that are recurring and you don’t want to have to rely on memory every time you send those tweets then pre-schedule them to run on the days you want to make those announcements.
- Marketing or promotional launches should always be scheduled for a certain timed release.
- If you tweet a certain type of message each day at the same time, pre-scheduling your tweets is the perfect way to ensure you are never late. I know a poet who tweets Twitter poems every day at the same time.
There are any number of reasons why you might want to pre-schedule your tweets, but I’d still recommend using Twitter manually and developing relationships. Use your pre-scheduled tweets to add additional flavor.
