I’ll give you my EXACT schedule for my business. Not quite down to the minute, but pretty close! Plus, I’ll give you a few valuable insights that few business owners are not likely to share with you!
I thought it would be helpful for you to see what I do on a daily basis to grow my Business through Instagram!
I am not saying you have to do everything the same as I do, but just a day in the life of Jennifer might help you see how much work you should be putting into your Instagram!
My Morning Routine
Every morning I wake up, I check my Instagram and make sure I do not need to respond to any comments.
After this I add a product post to my Instagram, put in my hashtags then get out of bed. Check out the Hashtag Webinar I did a few months ago.
Once I am up and ready for the day, I sit down at the computer looking for new products to post, I try to add at least 2 new products a day to my Spreesy store. (I understand most of you don’t have multiple products, this is just what I do.)
After I have added new products to the store, I start checking my emails, responding to any messages customers may have about their order.
Then I start getting all of the packages ready from yesterday’s orders, get them packaged and ready to ship. I try to jump in a kik group and ask for a share as well, sometimes it takes awhile for people to respond but I want to have one ready by the afternoon. If you are not sure what a share for share is, they are when one shop will post a picture on their Instagram of your product and caption you provide them, and you will do the same for them on yours. I was skeptical of these shares working when I first started doing them, but within a week of sharing I was having $2,000 days and I am positive that was because of the shop shares! If you decide you would like to join in on some shares, make sure you join the InstantBoss Club and we will get you where you need to be in order to succeed!
My Afternoon Routine
This is when I go grab lunch and drop by the post office to drop off any packages for the day.
Once I am back to my office, I make sure to do a couple shop shares.
Within a hour between each post I also try to post 2 more products posts to my Instagram. In the afternoon I typically jump on my Facebook groups to respond to any questions or posts I think I could help with (VISIBILITY IS KEY WHEN IT COMES TO SERVICES).
Then I switch gears a little bit to promoting the InstantBoss Club. I make some cute graphics in Wordswag to post on my Facebook page and Instagram. These graphics typically ask questions like “When did you know you wanted to be your own boss?” etc… Even though this doesn’t pertain to my business, it gets me visible and gives me the opportunity to collab with other awesome women. If I want a cute picture to use for my graphics, I will jump on to Hautechocolate.ca to grab some cute stock photos!
My Night Routine
Unfortunately you can’t just stop at 5 o’clock and call it a day. I don’t know about you but my most engaged Instagram time is at night. How did I find this out? I’ll let you in on a little secret, it’s not because I have a business Instagram account (In fact, I highly suggest you don’t have a business account) I use Iconosquare.com for all my analytics! Iconosquare let’s you know the best time to post to your Instagram, your top liked and comment photos, and so much more!
I like to post Quotes during this time, because it really gets people tagging their friends. Just so you know, the InstantBoss Club provides you with quote photos to use on your Instagram so you don’t have to come up with your own quotes, let InstantBoss do all the work for you! I also see a peak in sales after 6 o’clock so I like to have my phone handy just in case someone asks a question.
It can be very hard to manage your time wisely. Because I KNOW you don’t want to be on your phone 24/7 and trust me I know if you have a significant other, they don’t enjoy you being on your phone either.
So make time to set your phone down, and just breathe. This was hard when I first started I was attached to my phone, but I’ve had to learn that it’s OK to set your phone down every once and a while and just BE IN THE MOMENT. It’s up to you to decide when that will be, but please promise me you will do that!
Now that I have said that, I have made a worksheet for you that should help when planning your day! I really enjoy using this planner because it really helps me see my goals everyday!
