How to Visually Plan Your Instagram Feed

July 27, 2022

An instagram grid is the first impression of your social media profile.  Your aesthetic needs to be visually appealing and needs to effectively communicate your brand to the audience.  A grid aesthetic takes some strategic thinking as you should plan ahead.  Whether it’s using understated filters or posting branded templates, having a cohesive feed is key to telling your story.  It takes a lot of trial and error to decide what looks best, but we’ve found some tools to make it a whole lot easier.

Sked is the tool we use here at DayCloud.  It allows us a one stop Instagram shop where we can do all of our planning.  Sked’s ‘planner’ feature is where you can arrange your drafted posts onto your feed grid.  It makes it easy to swap images in and out deciding what order fits your profile the best.
