Recent data from social media platforms shows that Instagram is particularly effective at generating user interaction. You are already aware of this, and you intend to take full advantage of it.
You do feel like reality is hitting you in a different way these days. You’ve put in a lot of time and energy to produce high-quality articles, but no one seems interested.
Many marketers fail for the same reason: they don’t consider the most important part of the equation: the best time to post on Instagram.
Among other things, it explains why participation rates are so unpredictable. You should publish your Instagram photo or video when the vast majority of your target audience is online and available to view it and interact with it.
When is the Ideal Time to Post on Instagram for Business Purposes?
To maximise interaction with your Instagram brand profile, you can do one of two things:
1. Instagram Analytics Using SocialPilot
What time of day, what day of the week, and in what time zone should you post to Instagram?
The Instagram analytics tool in SocialPilot is a godsend for simplifying this process.
OK, let’s check out how that works.
Select the time frame you’re interested in seeing analytics for using the “Time Range” filter. Your Instagram business account’s analytics report for the past three months is available for viewing, downloading, and emailing.
Your best time to post on Instagram can be determined by consulting a heat map, which displays the average number of followers who are active at each hour and day of the week within the selected time range.
To help you maximise your business’s Instagram engagement, we’ve created this helpful heat map infographic for you to reference at any time.
Followers’ locations, genders, ages, and other important demographic information are all readily available to you.
The popularity of reels on Instagram has grown so rapidly that we felt it was critical to implement support for posting reels through SocialPilot and to provide analytics specifically for reels.
Analyzing these metrics on Reels allows you to keep track of your audience, engagement, likes, and video views. All of this information can be used to guide the development of your Instagram account and determine the timing and nature of your content’s greatest success.

2. Utilising Instagram’s Insights via the mobile app or Creator Studio
The best time to post on Instagram can be determined with the help of Instagram’s built-in analytics. You can verify these in two ways.
1.The Instagram App
One option is to use the Instagram app on a mobile device. It’s a helpful resource for learning about your Instagram audience, such as where they live, what they like to post, and what time of day they’re most active.
An Instagram business profile or a creator profile is required to gain access to Instagram analytics. With a creator account, you can also use the Instagram Creator Studio.
This is the second option, by the way. As with Instagram insights, Instagram Creators Studio provides access to a variety of audience data that can be used to determine the optimal time for Instagram posting.
The native Instagram insights are limited in that they only show you information about your followers’ online activity during the past week.
For this reason, we advise making use of SocialPilot, as it provides comprehensive audience analytics covering the preceding three months.
