Beginners Hack to Plan Your Instagram™ Content: Why You Should Use Draft Posts in Instagram™

When you’re new to Instagram™ it can seem overwhelming to plan all of your content. Whether it’s creating a cohesive look for your Instagram™ feed or sharing engaging Instagram™ Stories, it can seem like a lot of content to juggle. 

That’s why it’s so easy to spend a handful of dollars every month on different apps that help you edit, plan, and schedule your Instagram™ content. But maybe you’re not ready to commit to an app yet. Or maybe you want to save money that you can put towards other areas of your business. 

A lot of people don’t realize that Instagram™ drafts is an easy, free way to curate your content. Let’s dive into how this beginners hack can help you plan your Instagram™ content. 

Beginners Hack to Plan Your Instagram™ Content: How to Create an Instagram™ Draft Post

First, tap on the plus sign in the top right corner of your Instagram™ homepage or your profile. Then, pick the content you want to upload. 

Keep in mind:

Now, make sure you have all the pieces of your posts prepped, including the caption, hashtags, geotags, and other accounts tagged (if applicable). 

Finally, tap draft so you can save your content without posting. 

How to Delete an Instagram™ Draft Post

Inevitably there will be Instagram™ draft posts that you’ll want to delete. Here’s how to do it in a few easy steps. 

First, tap on manage and then tap on edit. Now, select the drafts you want to delete. 

It is worth noting that drafts cannot be saved across different devices. For example, if Morgan, my CEO, makes a draft, I won’t be able to access it on my phone. Even if we’re both logged into my Instagram™ Expert account.
