What to Post

One of the very first things you’ll need to work out as part of your new Instagram marketing strategy is what on earth you’re going to post.

*cue panic*

Don’t fret! Here’s something that’s going to be a game-changer for you, and completely put an end to your worry of what to post on Instagram.

It’s the Plann Strategy feature:

When you open up the Plann app, head on over to the Strategy feature to start creating a mock-grid of the content types you’d like to post.

If it’s your first time using the Plann app, you’ll notice that we’ve pre-filled your strategy with content ideas we think everyone should be sharing on rotation!

Content like:

This will help you to visually plan out your strategy and make sure that you aren’t accidentally scheduling a testimonial right after another testimonial, and so on.

How flipp’n cool is that?!

When to Post

Okay, now this one can be a big ol’ pain the butt.

When should you post to Instagram to get the best results?

I’m sure you don’t want to hear this, BUT, it completely depends on where in the world your audience are.

Some of the most common ‘best’ times to post are:

7:00am, 11:30am, 3:00pm, 7:00pm, 10:00pm

PSSST -> Here are our Plann account results! Yep, we use our own app, of course!

We recommend trying out different times to post, each time you post for 1-2 weeks straight and then take a peek at your Plann analytics to see which is your best posting time for each day of the week.

Easy peasy!
