How To Schedule Your Instagram Posts For Your Interior Design Business
Instagram is THE perfect platform to showcase your design work. It’s like Instagram was made for all things design! OK, you want to start using Instagram, or you may already be using it, but every day you spend a good amount of time figuring out what picture or video to post, what to write as copy, and you are thinking of all the OTHER things you should be doing instead of this. More important things like going to pick out tile for that kitchen renovation or meeting your client. Who has TIME for posting on Instagram?? Scheduling instagram posts can be a life changer!
Software and apps like Buffer, Planoly, Hootsuite, Sprout Social, Iconosquare exist to make your life EASIER! You can upload content and copy for the whole week, even the whole month at one time. Set it and forget it! Well almost, lol. But it does help a lot with time management, and we all need more time in our day, DON’T WE?
I like Buffer a lot. It is REALLY easy on the eyes and clean and simple. Here is a screenshot of the home page once you log in:
As you can see, the home page isn’t crowded with a bunch of buttons or columns. Just upload the photo/video you want, add what you want to say about it, add the hashtags.
Then you can either ‘Share it Now’ or ‘Schedule’ for whatever day and time you want. If you select Schedule it, a handy calendar pops up where you select the day. You can then see what you have scheduled for the next couple of days.
You can then see what you have scheduled for the next couple of days. For example this screenshot shows ‘Tomorrow’….and subsequent posts would line up in new boxes below it.
You also get some analytics such as likes, and comments. There is a FREE plan, but you can only automate up to 10 posts. The next plan is only $10 a month, and you can schedule up to 100 posts, and unlock more analytics.
You can go to www.buffer.com and sign up for an account today.
