Using Drafts as a Brand

We suggest creating different categories to keep track of upcoming campaigns or collaborations. Here are a few ideas on how to categorize your Drafts:

  • Photoshoots
  • Influencer partnerships
  • New product releases
  • Upcoming events
  • Event recaps
  • Instagram Story takeovers

Whether you’re organizing content for your grid or Stories, our Drafts feature is the perfect place to store your Instagram content before it’s ready to post. It can make a huge difference in your overall workflow and content strategy. Here at PLANOLY, we use Stories Drafts when planning out our Instagram Story takeovers. We also categorize our Drafts by color, so we know which folder to pull images from before planning out our grid. Everyone works differently though, so figure out a good system that benefits you the most! *PLANOLY Tip: Name your drafts by date if you need to post by a specific time.
