Instagram – make life easier

This is my guide to getting your Instagram posts done in one day.

I am going to start by saying I don’t know much but I want to help you if I can. If you can see areas that could help my business please feel free to teach me so I can pass it on.

Step 1: Get 30 photos of your content together. ( yeah this will take you time so maybe start a folder for next months posts and add to it when you have content that suits your brand)

Photos of quotes, a recent wedding or project, photos that tell stories about who you are…because a lot of people are on social media to get to know you and your business.

Step 2: Email them to yourself. If the files are too big either resize them or email them to yourself in a few emails. In those emails- if there is information relating to those posts, email them with the photos. For me it’s the suppliers who were on a wedding with me and hashtags.

Step 3. Open your email on your phone and save the photos – these are your posts.

Step 4. Open instagram and make a post as you normally would, tag people, use hash tags that represent your brand and before you press share, use the < key twice to go back 2 steps – It will say “if you go back now, your image edits will be discarded.” UNDER it will say save draft or discard or cancel. Press SAVE DRAFT.

Step 5: If you go back to your home page like you are about to post something new you will see DRAFTS above your CAMERA ROLL you will also see your saved post.

Step 6: Now to make yourself a coffee, put on spotify cause now you need to get inspired.

It’s time to make 30 posts.

You are just going to do step 4 over and over and over. Till you have finished.

If you are posting a wedding or a project do them all at the one time as the people you tagged in the previous post will be at the top of your tags and easy to find. If you have copy and pasted information about the project that needs to be used for each post you can also copy and paste your information and hashtags….doing your posts for that same project saves SO MUCH TIME.

Step 7

Take some time to research the time your target market is on and start posting.

There are apps to help your do this automatically but I do it the long way. You could set an alarm to help remind you when to post which is what a lot of the apps do.

If you go back to your home page like you are about to post something new you will see DRAFTS above your CAMERA ROLL.

To use posts from your drafts press MANAGE which will be to the right of the folder name drafts.

Now choose a photo, post it and then go for a walk cause you just saved yourself 15 min a day.

Hope that was helpful….cause it sure saves me time. Time is precious, once it’s gone you can never get it back.

Blessings,

Tara
