The Facebook Pages App is a simple app for your phone that makes managing your Facebook business page easy. You can download the iphone version here and the android version here.

 Why it will make you More Productive

  •  Less chances of distraction. When you open up the app you are taken straight to your business page. This cuts out all those time wasting distractions and brings you right to where you want to be.
  • Easy to update. This app makes it easy to add a status update directly from your phone. If you are at an event or on the road you can just take a pic and upload it there and then. Simple.
  • If you manage more than one page this is a god send. You can easily toggle between all the pages you manage and see how they are doing.
  • Get notifications about how your page is doing. Your notifications will be specifically about your business pages. This means you can quickly swoop in and resolve any issues or reply to comments directly from your phone.

 2. Schedule Your Posts

Often, your fans will be active at the weekend or in the evenings when you have clocked off. The best way to deal with  is to schedule your posts to appear over the weekend or during those more active hours. If you have a busy day you can also just write your posts ahead of time and schedule them to run over the course of the day.

It couldn’t be easier to schedule your posts. Just click on the little clock icon underneath your status update and you will see the schedule options appear (see below).
