“That’s a full-time job”

We hear it all the time as a reason people can’t grow on a platform like Instagram. We will never say growing on Instagram is easy. It takes effort and a plan to execute. 

But it CAN be done in one hour a day. 

Here are some of the ways our clients get more done in less time with better results: 

Research shows that excessive time spent on social media, especially aimlessly scrolling for inspiration, can lead to a decrease in productivity. By limiting inspiration-seeking activities, users can focus on creating meaningful content during their dedicated hours.

The Instagram algorithm favors consistent and engaging content. Users who concentrate on creating content that resonates with their audience and aligns with trending topics or relevant hashtags are more likely to gain visibility and attract new followers.

Social media automation tools have become popular for managing engagement without spending excessive time manually responding to comments and engaging with stories. By automating these processes, users can maintain a consistent presence and save time for more strategic activities.

Studies on productivity emphasize the importance of having a structured approach to tasks. A proven framework provides a step-by-step guide, reducing uncertainty and decision fatigue. It also eliminates guesswork and guides your actions in that crucial one-hour window. Whether it’s a content calendar, posting schedule, or a set routine for engagement, having a framework in place ensures that your efforts are intentional and geared toward growth.

Knowing your target audience and tailoring content to their interests is crucial for social media success. Research indicates that personalized and relatable captions perform much better than those that are more generic. An ideal buyer blueprint that aligns with your target audience strategy (talk to us more about this!) helps users understand their audience’s pain points, enabling them to craft captions that resonate and attract individuals facing similar challenges.

Let’s start low and move up. Here is a recommended possible time frame to get your one-hour-a-day bang for your buck: 

  • 7 minutes: Research – Plan your content
  • 8 Minutes: 3-5 stories that serve your ideal buyer
  • 10 minutes: Watch stories and send DMs
  • 15 minutes: Comment on 15 other accounts in your niche and respond to comments
  • 20 minutes: Create and post your reel. Film for 3, edit for 10, post in 7 

In just one focused hour a day, you have the power to revolutionize your Instagram strategy. By prioritizing content creation, embracing automation, and following a proven framework, you’ll witness a very tangible and impressive increase in your follower count!
