To grow your influence on Instagram, it is important to consistently share content that is high-quality and will fit with your brand. There is no denying that sometimes our creative minds reach a roadblock and our schedules get hectic and we feel we do not have time to figure out what to post.
Luckily there are plenty of apps to help us schedule our Instagram posts. We will be able to prepare captions and hashtags with our content. I use Planoly!
Something to always remember is that it is not about you. It is always about your audience or clients. What can you do for them!
Content Ideas for your Next Instagram Post
1. A Tutorial
What could you teach your audience or client?
For example, are you a Beauty Lifestyle Blogger? Any girl who isn't blessed with perfect eyebrows would love to know the art of mastering brow makeup.
Share your tips on how to use your favorite products. Engage with your audience on a helpful level.
2. Your flavor of the Month
What are you obsession over this month? New camera equipment? Pottery Barn or TJ Maxx? New home decor purchase?
My obsessions are always coffee mugs, slippers and flip flops!
Share what product is getting you so excited!
3. Latest apps you've found
Spread the word about apps, new software or new tools that you have discovered or found helpful and fun.
Don't keep it a secret, share it with your audience! The creators of the product may even get in touch to offer you something to say thanks ~ hint hint.
4. Your DIY Project
Are you inspired to make something yourself?
Whether it's a DIY pallet bookshelf or painting mason jars, share it with your clients and let them look at the behind the scenes of your work.
Make it a video and also share it to your Instagram Stories.
5. Ask a Question
Engaging with your audience is so important! Asking them a fun or crazy question will design a way to strike up a conversation and lift your engagement rate. It can be anything at all! Think of How, When or Where.
