Coming up with caption ideas.
Finding the perfect images.
And remembering to flipp’n post the thing!
Ugh – Instagram Marketing can be super duper stressful at the best of times.
And if you happen to be one of the lucky people who run a business completely on your own… well… it’s tough.
But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Today we’re going to share how you can create a marketing plan for Instagram that leaves you feeling organized, on top of your shizz and feeling fine.
Keen to find out what that strategy is? Keep on reading!
What to Post
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:
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!
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.
How to Post
As we mentioned at the veeery beginning of this blog, one of the biggest stresses for business owners and influencers alike is actually remembering to post.
This is why writing your captions on the fly is a bad marketing strategy!
To stay consistent and stress-free, we recommend using the Plann app to schedule your Instagram grid posts as well as your Instagram Stories content.
It makes your life a breeze!
With Plann you can schedule your content a few days in advance, a week, or if you’re feeling productive… you can organize your content for a whole month!
Personally – i’m a monthly Plann’r.
Let me know in the comments below; how often do you schedule your Instagram content?!
