As a content creator, the daily tasks you have to juggle are never-ending. From filming and creating content to getting content approvals and actually scheduling content on each social media platform. We see you and we admire your hustle. At PLANOLY, our goal is to make your job just a little bit easier. Our superpower has always been visual planning, and we’ve introduced some new features that make visual planning even easier. Let’s walk through four new ways to visually plan with PLANOLY.
With PLANOLY, you can plan across Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), Pinterest & LinkedIn all at the same time. As a content creator, you already know the importance of repurposing content. Some videos may get little engagement on one platform, but drive tons of views and comments on another.
So how exactly does this work? In your multi-channel workspace, you can click “NEW POST”. From there, you’ll be taken to a screen where you can select which channels you want to plan for. After that, you can upload your media across all channels.
Now that you know where to go to start planning across channels, it’s important to know that you can actually customize the content by channel. This includes the media, caption, and scheduling times. Your audience may have different habits across platforms, so you can choose to schedule something for Instagram in the morning and for YouTube at night. Similarly, you can tweak the caption or media by channel. If you need to shorten a video for TikTok, but do something longer-form on YouTube, it’s all doable in this scheduling view. You can also swap out the caption or add hashtags to some channels and not others. Having a single view across channels makes it easy to visually see what the content looks like by channel.
After your media, captions, and scheduling times are set, you can see a visual preview of your content prior to posting. By clicking on the eye icon in the top right corner of the scheduling page, you can see what your social post will look like once it’s live. This is an absolute game-changer because now you can quickly see if you need to adjust anything in your post. Most commonly, this can help avoid any text or important information getting cut off by the social icons on a Reel or TikTok video.
After you’ve finished scheduling your content, you can use the PLANOLY calendar to see what days and channels you have scheduled at a glance. The social icons make it easy to quickly identify what channels are good to go. You can also choose to hover over a scheduling time to get a quick look at what the content looks like and the exact time it will post.
With these visual planning tools in your toolkit, you can save so much time planning, scheduling & repurposing across channels. Try these features free for 7 days on planoly.com.
