Maybe you recently decided to re-launch your website or maybe you are just starting with your business? WordPress is a very accessible platform but in some cases, it might be challenging – especially for new users Today I’m here to explain one of the most common things that you can do on this platform – scheduling blog posts. So buckle up and let’s get to it. 

Step 1. 

Let’s start by logging into our WordPress. You will see a screen looking something like that:

Step 2.

Now we have to add a new post. To do so, click add a new post:

Step 3.

Start with adding a title and add some content. Remember, when creating a title and content it’s very important to check what people are looking for. To do so focus on keywords. When you add your title and content, remember to add headings by highlighting a part of the text and then choosing a suitable heading:

Once you are done, scroll down and add a focus key phrase:

Again think about your followers. What are they searching for? How could they form a question? What is important to them?

Step 4.

Don’t forget about meta description, which (again) has to resonate with your audience, choosing a category and adding a featured image:

Moreover add a footer, author, and an image of the author.

Step 5.

Now we move to the essential part of this tutorial. If you want to schedule your post, you must click “edit” which is next to “publish immediately”:

There is nothing more to do than choose a date and time and click “ok”. Don’t forget to schedule the whole post by clicking “schedule” in the main view:

And that’s it! Your post is scheduled and will appear on your website at chosen time. If you want to make sure that the whole post will look exactly as you wish, you can always see it by clicking “preview”.

As a result, you will be able to see your page as if you were using it as a visitor. I highly recommend checking your post in the preview to prevent some mistakes that can have a bad impact on the reception of your content. It’s crucial to understand that making valuable content is not enough. It is also necessary to make content which is accessible to your users.
