Why Plan Your Instagram Feed? 🧐

It’s the first thing that people see when they visit your page. Duh! Think of your feed as a store. You don’t want someone to see a messy, disorganized feed. You want people to see something well-curated and interesting to look at.
When you plan your feed in advance, you can create something that is more consistent with your brand, more aesthetically pleasing, and, trust us, if you have all those things, people will want to follow you and engage!

So you’re trying to figure out how in the world you plan your Instagram account?
Follow these steps and we promise you’ll have all the tools you need to create a beautiful and curated Instagram feed:

1. Gather your Instagram content

First things first, you need CONTENT. Like, duh. Gather all of the images, videos, and Reels that you want to post on your Instagram. One of our top tips for a curated feed is to make sure the image and video content go together, so editing them in a similar filter or preset can be helpful to fit your brand’s aesthetic.
Looking for some presets to help your brand? Check out this blog post.
But if you don’t care about everything looking the same, skip the filter and collect all the content you want to post! Don’t have enough content to fill in the gaps? Why not try some stock photos? Here are some of our favorite stock photo websites to help curate your feed.

2. Organize the perfect Instagram Feed

Now that you have all of your content gathered, it’s time to start planning what your feed is actually going to look like. One of the best ways to do that? By using a planner!
With Flick’s Feed Preview, you can upload all of your content and place it in the feed to see what it would look like before you post. Feed Preview makes it very easy for you to rearrange, upload, and swap out photos and videos by dragging and dropping the content into place.
But Mackenzie, why should we schedule our content? Well, it helps you stay consistent with your content and makes your audience want to engage … which means more reach and, therefore, more growth on your account!
