The Key to Content Planning is Batching
Batching your work can save time and frustration in the long run! However, the key to batching is to create based on what you are trying to do for that month.
What promotions are going on in that month?
How do you want your target audience to interact with your latest blog posts?
What behind the scenes sneak peeks do you want to share?
What testimonials or client work do you want to showcase?
Next you need to look at your target audience. Remember the person you created when you first began your brand.
What times should you post?
During those times what would be the best topic to talk about.
What are they struggling with this month and how can you help them.
If they are using your products why not showcase their work on your page.
Batching your Instagram Content: The Plan
Look at your month in a glance:

Pick your posting day/times and stick to them!
You need to show up! It doesn’t matter what days you post just as long as you show up. Pick 3 days of the week to post. If you can do more, do them, however do not overwhelm yourself. Only do what YOU can do! On the days that you do not post make sure to continue to engage with your audience. Give yourself 10 minutes 3 times a day to start off. Or find time during a certain day to sit down and engage with your audience for at least 30 minutes!
It’s important to find a strategy and stay consistent. Pick a Day and plan. Pick a weekend to batch photos and graphics. Then create captions that go along with the categories you’ve set in place.
