My Favorite Instagram Sharing Strategy

By |2018-11-18T21:08:51+00:00Nov 19th, 2018|

Time is possibly the most precious resource we have, right? We can’t grow more of it. “Found time” is a wishful phrase. You can’t give me any extra time, nor can I return the favor. All we can do is implement plans and practices to make the best use of our time.

As many of you, one thing I do regularly is share my photos on social media. Whether it’s Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, I want to do what I can to consistently share the work that I’ve created over the years. For a long time, that meant waking up each morning to select a photo, type out some catchy words, and click the Share button. That’d be for Facebook. Then, I’d move on to Twitter. Then Instagram.

Doing this day after day began to take its toll, especially related to time. These posts started taking up anywhere from an hour to two each day and it quickly became clear that it wouldn’t be sustainable. That’s when I learned about Buffer and the ability to pre-build all of my posts for the week and schedule them to go out on specific days and times. This practice has become an integral part of my strategy and I’m sharing what it looks like in this video. I hope it proves helpful for you. Be sure to share your own time-saving tips for photography and business in the comments.

    I just recently was introduced to scheduled posts for IG. I don’t use Buffer, but Planonly. It really has saved me time. Thank you also for the explanation on the ratios for posting to IG. I will have to make a preset for that in LR.
