How to Schedule TikTok Posts With Later

Scheduling your TikTok videos with Later can be done in six easy steps. Here’s how:

Step #1: Add Your TikTok Profile to Your Later Account

Adding your TikTok profile to your Later account is a quick and easy process. 

In Calendar View, add your TikTok Profile by clicking the plus (+) sign at the top of the page:

And voila, you can now schedule TikTok posts!

Step #2: Choose a Video to Post on TikTok

Drag and drop content from your Media Library to your calendar:

TIP: Save time by scheduling to multiple channels at once with a multi-profile post.

Step #3: Crop and Trim Your TikTok Video

TikTok videos can be up to 10 minutes long, and we recommend an aspect ratio of 9:16 (similar to a mobile phone screen). This way, your content will be optimized for optimal viewing. 

To crop your video size, tap “Edit” and select the TikTok crop. 

To adjust the length of your video, select the “Trim” tool.

Step #4: Write Your TikTok Post Caption 

Write your caption and include strategic hashtags and keywords to maximize your TikTok post’s reach. 

TIP: Use Later’s Saved Captions feature to save your most-used hashtags so you can quickly add them to your posts.

Step #5: Add Links to Your TikTok Bio

When you schedule your videos in advance, you can also leverage Later’s TikTok tool — adding a link to every video you share.

With Later’s TikTok tool, you can create a clickable, mobile-optimized landing page — with the option to add custom link buttons and a link to each of your scheduled videos. 

This way, you can drive followers to web pages, event sign-ups, blog posts, or long form video content. You can even customize your landing page to match your brand colors.

NOTE: Only certain accounts have access to TikTok’s link field. If you don’t have access yet, watch this space!

Step #6: Schedule Your TikTok Post

Select the date and time you’d like to post your video on TikTok. 

When it’s time to post, your video will be automatically published, no late-night logins required. 

Alternatively, select “Notification” to receive a manual prompt to post. You’ll get everything you need delivered straight to your mobile, so you can share your TikTok video in seconds.

Bonus Steps: Reply to Comments and Check Your Analytics 

These may be bonus steps, but they’re ones that can make all the difference when it comes to improving your TikTok strategy. 

With Later, you can pin and reply to comments directly on the desktop app — making community engagement much easier during the working day. 

The more engagements your videos receive, the better they will perform with the TikTok algorithm.

And that’s not all. Later also has fully integrated TikTok Analytics, so you can learn exactly what’s working for your business over time.
