    Step 6. To schedule your video on YouTube, click Schedule.

    When scheduling your video on YouTube, you also have the option to Set as Premiere. But what does it mean? By setting a video as a premiere, you and viewers can watch it together at the same time.

    A public viewing page will be created and a countdown to the start of the video is shown. Once the video starts, you can interact with viewers in live chat and comments.


    A super important tip that we would like to point out, before you schedule your posts on Facebook, Instagram or Youtube: create original content and be aware of the copyright policies of each social network. The Facebook and Instagram creative studio allows you to protect the original content you post on the platforms. To do this, sign up for Rights Manager.

    YouTube has extensive artificial intelligence that detects both images and audio from other videos that are copyrighted. So use only images, videos and music or audios of your own.

    Otherwise, you will be punished by the platform and you will lose all your content.

    Paid tools for scheduling posts: is it worth it?

    If you just want a way to schedule your posts, you may be wondering if it's worth paying for a platform or using the Facebook, Instagram and YouTube creative studio. Today there are several paid tools that help with this post scheduling process.

    Among the best known are Mlabs and Hootsuite. If you just want to schedule your content on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, we don't believe paying for a platform is necessary.

    However, if you want to schedule posts in more places like Stories and Linkedin, for example, paid tools can help. In addition, these tools usually also offer more features, such as content approval flow, statistics, message management through Inbox, are some of Mlabs' differentials, for example.
