What is the Best Time to Post on Instagram?

Is there one time to post that works for everyone?

Like everything in life timing can be key to increasing your Instagram post reach. But what time is best for you? An online search is confusing, some say 9 am to 11 am every day is the best time to post, while some say that Tuesday through Friday are the best days to post. These are extremely generic metrics and may not be true for you.

Does it even make sense that there is one best time to post that works for everyone? The days and times that would work for a fashion influencer would most definitely not work for a finance influencer on Instagram. Weekdays and working hours may work best for a finance blogger analysing stock market versus weekends and after work hours for a fashion blogger.

And then there is the new Instagram Algorithm

Early in 2018, Instagram introduced major changes to its algorithm, changing the feed patterns for IG users. In order to make the user's feed more relevant Instagram did away with the chronological feed and started customizing user's feed based on their preferences and interests. For influencers, bloggers and IG businesses this makes it more challenging than ever to find the best time to post.

So, how do you find your own best time to post?

This brings us back to the question of, what day and time are best to post on Instagram to increase your reach and engagement. The answer to this according to us would be to know your audience, experiment with different timings and content types and providing value with each post.
