Instagram Content Calendar for Bloggers

Instagram can be a bloggers dream or worst nightmare. So much of your Instagram “success” depends on consistency and thought out content. Posting on a whim can lead to poor quality content with bland captions that people don’t want to engage with and more importantly- that they don’t want to see again. Does that make you wonder what you can do to beat the Instagram algorithm? How can you get more Instagram engagement? How can Instagram help you as a blogger? The key is a solid Instagram content calendar for bloggers!

And now let’s quickly chat about my top tips and tricks for Instagram if you are a blogger!

Instagram tips and tricks for bloggers:

Tip 1) Before posting ask yourself if your content is providing value? Will it inform or entertain your followers? If not then consider what you can add in the caption to provide value.

Tip 2) Stay consistent but don’t overwhelm. Posting at least 5 times a week is ideal but don’t overwhelm your followers by posting 5 times a day! You don’t want anyone getting annoyed and unfollowing or forgetting who you are because you don’t post enough.

Tip 3) Try to link your content back into recent blog posts. Especially if you are a lifestyle blogger who blogs about a lot of different things. For example, if you just did a home decor post then try to link your most recent Instagram post to something home decor related.

Tip 4) Utilize relevant hashtags. Don’t just add 30 trending hashtags! Keep it relevant and think about things people could be searching that if they saw your picture would make them actually want to click on your account and follow you.

Tip 5) Fix your bio! Make sure that when someone clicks on your account that they know who you are based on your bio and what type of content they can expect.

Tip 6) Make sure you are staying active on stories. A lot of people just look at stories now on Instagram and don’t spend much time looking at in feed posts.

Tip 7) Don’t forget to location tag. This is a great way to reach more people especially people that aren’t bloggers and don’t necessarily follow a lot of bloggers. Which tend to be the people who will shop your links the most!

Tip 8) Respond to comments. Of course you don’t need to respond to spam/bots but everyone who is “real” try to respond to those comments. It’ll encourage people to comment again and the algorithm likes comments.

Tip 9) Share each new post on other platforms. If you want to grow your Instagram make sure to share the post across platforms. Especially Twitter and Pinterest!
