Curating Instagram grids is part of the work of every social media manager and business owner. It’s intrinsically tied to the importance of content creation. Your Instagram grid is a portfolio of content your audience of potential customers interacts with.
When it comes to curating Instagram grids, there are plenty of strategies you can implement. In this Papion blog post, we’ll talk about those strategies, but as part of a larger conversation. These five elements of intentional content creation on your Instagram grid encompass those strategies within the benefits you’ll find as you curate your grid.
5. Memorable, Recognizable Content
Whether you’re revamping your brand, starting out, or building your existing strategy, creating memorable, recognizable content is a constant goal and benefit. It’s a goal because recognizable content will build up your social media presence. The benefit comes in when customers see your content and relate it to a product or service they want.
4. Streamlined Future Content
When you’re curating your Instagram grid, not only are you making amazing current content, you’re also setting up your content plan for the future. Having a brand identity means knowing what type of content you’re going to create. Building your grid around that means you’re always preparing for the future. You’re setting up your content for success.
3. Aesthetic Brand Tone
Your brand tone is multi-faceted and one of the many parts of it is the aesthetic you curate. Curating Instagram grids has a direct focus on aesthetics. When you focus on your grid, you’re giving attention to the aesthetics of your brand tone. That builds your brand on social media in a subtle but highly effective way.
2. Shareable, Evidentiary Content
Shareable, evidentiary content is something every brand benefits from. When you create content it’s most beneficial to have content that can be repurposed and used for all manner of business purposes. Curating your Instagram grid with relevant content that can be used in business pitches and branding is key to your Instagram success.
