In this tutorial, I am going to demonstrate you, how to schedule posts on Telegram channel using your bot. Telegram is one of the secure instant messaging apps I have ever used. The best feature I like in Telegram messenger is Channel. It is the revamped version of message broadcasting.
Now, you have an opportunity to invite an unlimited number of members to your channel, and this is best for Internet marketers. Use channel feature in the Telegram app, rather than using Whatsapp for broadcasting your important messages and posts.
At the end of the November 2015, I started a channel, and now it has 10K+ active members. This channel is helping me to promote my blog posts.
If you are aware of this feature, don’t forget to join best Telegram channels. Your daily social media activities help you to increase the members of your social network. The protocol is also same for Telegram channels.
If you are posting regularly in a particular time, then the members of your channel will increase. However, every day it is not possible to publish at a given time. Social media, like Facebook, has the option to schedule posts on the page, but what about Telegram?
Don’t worry my friends; I have a solution for you.
Schedule Posts for Your Telegram Channel
In order to schedule posts for Telegram channel, you need a Telegram bot. The bots are automated scripts to manage a particular task. The procedure is super easy and divided into three sections.

Creating a bot is super easy. There is bot named @Botfather in Telegram, which helps to build new bots.
- Search for Botfather on Telegram messenger and tap on the “START” button.

- Tap on /newbot to create a new bot. It’ll display a message like, Alright, a new bot. How are we going to call it?
