Scheduled Campaigns


The third type of campaign that you can use in SM Tasker is the Scheduled Campaign. Scheduled Campaigns are a great way to automate your social media marketing in a way that they allow you to schedule posts in advance, including special occasion posts, with customized scheduling options for each post. This feature is perfect for publishing future posts and allows you to select how often they will be repeated.

When to use a Scheduled Campaign?

If you have posts that are meant for recurrent events, or you have items to be published for dedicated dates, then the scheduled campaign is your perfect match!

With this type of campaign, you can set different timers for each post and you can select how often they will be repeated—could be daily, every X days, X weeks, or X months.

📌 On a Scheduled Campaign, you will need to set a timer for each post hence it does not have a “When to Publish” tab, unlike a Standard and Volume Campaign. All other tabs for the campaign are similar to that of the Standard Campaign:

📌 One of the most important options in the “When to Publish” tab is ‘wait around xx seconds before publishing the same post list item on a new destination’ and since this campaign does not have that tab, that option can be found instead on the “Overview” tab.
