What is a good number of times to post to IG per day?
I feel like the answer probably varies with each situation for the account, so I’m wondering if there are any rules of thumbs or different perspectives on this.
My accounts in reference are under 10K followers in early growth stages. They are just reposting quotes within the niche that people like, and I am also posting in quotes that I am promoting in amongst it to blend in and people who like that niche become exposed to these other quotes I’m promoting. Some of the accounts are doing like 5-6 posts per day, some doing maybe 8-10.
I see some big accounts only do 1 or 2 posts per day and just get big engagement. But in my situation currently I am trying to expose my posts to extra audiences for followers through hashtags, but also want a decent engagement on it. So I am wondering what is the best balance.
How does it work for posts showing up in people’s feeds if I went to only doing say 2-3 posts per day? (So it could be like 6 hours until a new post, instead of 2 hours or less). If the engagement is okay, would that post still stick around in people’s feeds for those extra 4 hours, or is it worth just having more frequent posts coming out?
Thanks in advance for any insight on this.
