Why you should schedule Instagram Stories in 2023

Instagram Stories should be an important part of your marketing strategy if it’s not already. It’s an easy way for you to reach your followers and help you build an engaged community online!

Scheduling your Instagram Stories in advance can help you build your strategy ahead of time to ensure your Stories are consistently good every single time.
Some of the most important reasons to schedule your Instagram Stories are:

Save time

This is a big one for most of us working on social media! We’ve got to wear a lot of hats and being able to schedule content in advance can be a HUGE help! Instead of needing to create and post Stories on the go throughout the day, you can set aside time each week to plan and schedule your Stories all at once. This gives you more time to focus on other areas of your social media like content creation, engagement, and analytics.


Consistency is one of the most important things on social media. Want to grow your followers? Be consistent. It shows your audience that you are reliable and to expect new content from you!

Post at the best times

Because IG Stories only last 24 hours, you need to post when your audience is online and active. Being able to schedule your Stories to the exact time your audience is online will help you get maximum reach and engagement. You know, the thing you really want.

Create better content

When you take more time to plan and create your Instagram Stories, you’re able to make more polished and more on-brand Stories every time.

Get better insights

When you plan your Stories in advance, you can use analytics tools (like Flick’s!) to see what is working for your audience and what isn’t working. You can then use this information to improve your content in the future.
Scheduling Instagram Stories is incredibly easy and something you should be doing if you want to improve your Instagram engagement. Sign up for Flick today to get started!
