How Many Times per Day Should You Post to Instagram?

So you've created an Instagram profile and are ready to start working on it. Good! Now, how should you go about doing this? Let's start off by knowing how often you should post to Instagram, given that every social network has its own recommended posting frequency.


It’s highly recommended that you post at least once a day, but two times a day would be the ideal publishing frequency.


And the reason behind it is that Instagram has two engangement peaks:


🕐 Between 3 PM and 4 PM approximately.

🕐 Between 12:30 AM and 2 AM approximately.


Which means that it’s super important for you or your brand to show up on your audience's feed exactly when they are checking it for worthwhile content or before bedtime when insomnia kicks in.

What Are the Recommended Image Sizes for Instagram?

While you would normally take photos with your phone to share to Instagram, every once in a while you might have to upload photos from other sources. That's when using recommended Instagram photo sizes will come in handy. Why? Because your photos will look much more attractive!


In fact, using images on Instagram that are much smaller than the recommended size negatively impacts on the visual quality of your photos. So, the best thing is to stick to the platform’s recommended sizes which are:

4 Essential Tips:

What Type of Content Should I Publish to Instagram?

We all know that Instagram's main purpose is sharing photos. But every new feature brings us endeless new possibilities. That’s why we want to make sure you know what's the best content to share!

1- Attractive Photos that Are Relevant to Your Audience
Photos are the base of your posts. Once you’ve defined your audience’s profile and likes (corresponding with your brand and proposal) you can start to publish photos from your day-to-day life, your products, pleasing scenery, and objects.


2- Short, Fun Videos through Instagram Stories

As we explained earlier, Instagram has some new features; Instagram Stories is the most prominent. It allows you to record up to 10 seconds videos and add fun drawings to each one. You should really take advantage of this and share the entertaining moments of your day.


3- Share Breathtaking and Attractive Posts from other people.

Another way to share good quality content on Instagram is by reinstagraming other people's attractive and relevant posts to your community every once in a while.


4- Add Hashtags to Everything You Post!

Even though this last one is not exactly a type of content, it's extremely important that all your posts come with a relevant hashtag in order to maximize their exposure. The idea is that when people search those hashtags your images appear as a result.
