Let's see what's new in social media this week with, Christian Karasiewicz, Sara Munro, and Valerie Morris. Social Chatter: Social Media Marketing Talk Show - Episode 350 Native Instagram Scheduling From the App This week, we're taking a look at native Instagram scheduling. If you've ever wanted to schedule Instagram posts, Stories, or Reels content when it's convenient for you, they're working on allowing this. One of the frustrating things about using Instagram is that you've always had to be on a mobile device. Over the years, they've slowly started to allow access from desktop, and via Creator Studio. Here is a look at how native Instagram scheduling might work, along with some additional screenshots from Creator Studio, which currently offers limited native scheduling options to Instagram. #Instagram is working on the ability to schedule posts directly from the app 👀 pic.twitter.com/5DYUWNj7f8 — Alessandro Paluzzi (@alex193a) July 21, 2022 Keep in mind that native Instagram scheduling from the mobile app isn't yet available. You can still use Creator Studio to do some light scheduling until mobile scheduling is rolled out. Why Native Instagram Scheduling Matters For Your Business? Your time is valuable and you might need to work from your mobile device, such as a smartphone. By adding native Instagram scheduling, you can work from your mobile device, or move to Instagram in Creator Studio if you need to work from your laptop. This would provide your business with greater flexibility. You can also work from anywhere, while tapping into the power that your smartphone and its collection of apps provides, for recording, editing, and adjusting photos, videos and Reels content. By adding native Instagram scheduling, this also reduces the need to use additional third-party scheduling tools because you can then do most of the scheduling you need, if IG is your primary social media platform for reaching your customers.

Leveling Up Your Social Media With so many social media platforms available, how can you pick the right one for your business, without feeling overwhelmed? This week, we talked with Valerie Morris about ways to choose the right platforms for clients, along with tips on creating content. How Are You Choosing Platforms For Your Clients? It still comes down to the nature of the platform. Users are blending across different social media channels. If they’re heavy in the B2B space, LinkedIn is the best option, and one of my favorite platforms for gaining exposure. For some businesses, Facebook has faded into the background a little bit, while Instagram has moved forward. B2B companies want to be where the people are, so they’re gravitating more towards LinkedIn, Instagram and TikTok. Keep in mind, listen to the client, but also offer up suggestions based on their available time and needs. How Are You Creating Content For Your Clients, Or Coaching Them On Creating Video? You have to pick-up a lot of skills to create quality social media content. This includes script writing, video editing, and graphic design. We’re providing recommendations about the types of content they could make. We’re not necessarily producing it for them. It is often best to bring in the subject matter expert with bulletpoints, and then have them record the videos. This way their knowledge and passion shines through. What Are Some Favorite New LinkedIn Tools? I'm really a big fan of LinkedIn newsletters. They can be a great tool to get your message in front of your existing audience, but have also proven to be successful at helping you reach beyond your audience. Wrap-up To sum it up this week, we discussed how native Instagram scheduling of posts and Reels can make it easier for you to share new content on the platform, when it's convenient for you.
