Keep an eye out
You can create an Instagram collection of posts that are unique to your competitors; their popular posts, influencers they work with and hashtags they use. This gives a fair idea of tactics you can mirror, trends you can follow in your industry and best practices. You can always refer to this collection when creating your marketing strategies and content calendar. Don’t worry…no one will ever know.
Your audience working for you
Another Instagram collection your business can create is one filled with customers talking about what your business offers. Everyone loves a good recommendation or reference. This collection can be separated by different items and named accordingly. It especially comes in handy when it’s a slow day for content or when it’s time to report on your social media progress.
Time is of the essence and you may not always have the opportunity to respond to every comment or tag right away. For the busy Social Media Managers, you can create a collection of posts from users that you can get back to later. Just remember that you have a reminder section!
Just do it!
Lastly, inspiration. One can never have too many inspo posts. Create a collection of Inspirational posts relevant to what your business is trying to achieve. Refer to it every so often as a spark to where you would like your business to be. Align this collection to your overall goals and objectives.
