Staying organised when it comes to Instagram is something I have learnt is of huge importance in the last couple of months. As my account as being growing, I have been pushing to work with a lot more brands and with that comes a large responsibility to keep on top of everything. For instance, you have ongoing brand deals with 10 different brands at the same time, parcels arriving at different times, different post dates all agreed in advanced – without a clear system this all gets too much and adds extra stress to your life. I have developed a strategy where I used two different books to keep everything all in place and simple.
I have one notebook which never leaves my side, you’ll find it by my bed at home or in my handbag wherever I am (pictured as the cute sloth print book from Primark). In this
Then, of course, is the much-needed diary planner (pictured as the Chanel quote book which I picked up from Home Sense). I keep this at home and use it for a couple of things. Firstly the monthly planner is where I put 1) what I’m actually doing in my life AND 2) my scheduled post dates so that I don’t lose track of what I have agreed, and provide me with an overview of what I need to get done. Secondly, I use the weekly planner pages to set myself daily tasks of what I need to be doing Instagram-wise, mainly this is emailing and replying to brands. Much like the brand deal notebook, when I have done my daily tasks, I cross them out one by one.
I know this all seems incredibly far fetched and a hassle, but since having this clear system it has dramatically reduced my stress and pressure as I can see the tasks ahead and provides for better efficiency. I hope this provides some of you with some tips or at least some insight into staying organised when it comes to working with brands.
