3 Reasons You Should Be Scheduling your Instagram Posts

Quality is always better than Quantity.

 

It’s 2018. If you’re not scheduling your Instagram posts then it’s time you should.

Whether you’re a business, photographer, influencer, blogger or an all rounded creative. As we all know, time is of the essence so let’s use it wisely.

A lot of time and effort goes into one Instagram post. That’s why you should prepare and schedule your posts in advance to save you the anxiety of frantically trying to post on the day! By leaving more time to create better content, researching the correct hashtags, the correct time to post will not only build your following but leave you with more time to complete other tasks.

On another note, Instagram has now updated its rules & regulations to allow scheduling applications to directly post straight onto your account so you don’t have to worry about anything!

If you’re still not convinced by now here are 3 reasons you should start scheduling your Instagram posts.

 

1. Get rid of those “Ahh I forgot to post on Instagram again” moments

There are only so many hours in the working day. Picture this: its 5pm and you’ve just finished what’s on your to-do list for the day and you realise you forgot to post on Instagram. AGAIN.

As you do, you try and scroll back on your camera roll trying to find something that is worthy of posting or somewhat fits my Instagram aesthetic. Not only are you wasting time but a lack of quality that translates through your post.

The answer to all your problems: Start Scheduling.

 

2.Schedule your Instagram Posts so you can focus on engaging with new audiences!

One of the best ways to increase your reach is to spend time researching specific hashtags related to your genre. For example, if you’re a bag brand focusing on minimalism in design, the right hashtags could be #minimal #bagoftheday #modernbags #backpack

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Effectively utilising hashtags can increase the engagement of your posts and open up opportunities to new audiences.

The key here is not to spam hashtags, but only use relevant and specific ones that add value to your brand. Through scheduling, you’re giving yourself the time to organise different sets of hashtags relating to the content.

3.Invest Time to Create Better Instagram Captions

We all know that coming up with captions is a nightmare, even worse when it’s on the spot. Be proactive and think of engaging captions that capture the attention of your audience.

Millions of users scroll through each minute, so it’s important to stand out from the crowd!
