Instagram is finally making it easy for many users to schedule posts or reels up to 75 days in advance without the use of third-party tools or services.
In the past, the only official solution to scheduling when content goes live on the platform was through the desktop tool Meta Business Suite.
Now, many users and almost all brands will be able to schedule content drops up to 75 days ahead of time directly from the iOS or Android Instagram apps. The only catch is that users must have a professional account which is free for brands or professionals on the app.
How To Schedule Posts on Instagram
Professional accounts can now schedule posts containing the most popular types of content on Instagram including:
- Single Pictures
- Image Carousels
Currently, the feature allows users to schedule these posts up to 75 days before they are to go live.
To do this, open the Instagram post composer and tap “Advanced settings” to find the option to “Schedule this post.”
From there, you can select the exact time and date you want the content to be published.
This will let you get the most impact out of content releases by getting in front of your audience when they are most receptive. You can also use this to synergize content releases with the content being published on other platforms or product releases to amplify your content’s influence.
