How to Create a Cohesive Feed for Instagram

How to create a cohesive feed on Instagram - Tutorial - Renuko Style

 

There has been a lot of talk over the interwebs about having a cohesive feed for Instagram. Truth is, most of us follow an account if we like what we see in the first 9 posts. We have about 3 seconds to convince someone we are worth following if we have never interacted with them before.

At first, I did not take this seriously. And I really wasn’t sure how to make it happen. Then I was asked to submit images to Bella Grace Magazine for an Instagram feature. It was then that I realized how important it was that the images relate to each other in a pleasing way.

But it was really difficult to make that happen without planning my posts ahead. I started making grids in Photoshop weeks in advance. That worked but was very laborious. And what if I wanted to change it up a bit mid-stream?

Enter UNUM. Perfect! With this little app, you can load your photos, move them around anywhere you like, even do a little last minute edit. You can put in your comment in advance and set a timer to post or write your comment and enter your hashtags just before posting.

The thing is … it takes the stress out of posting daily. You can plan a month in advance, say, your autumn themed photos in October and you already know which image you will post the next morning.

I have been using UNUM for 6 or 8 months now and truly love it. So I made a little video for you by way of a tutorial. I have included my thought process, how I plan the color and intersperse a variety of aesthetics. Because, as you may know, I can’t stick with just one.
