Instagram Drafts Feature Lets Vet Clinics Plan Posts

Managing a veterinary hospital’s Instagram can be SO tricky because – as of fall 2016 – there isn’t way to schedule posts ahead of time.

Great news! There is a new feature that will allow you to save posts to drafts. You’ll have to go back and post later, but you will have your photo, filter & caption ready to go.

Here’s how you do it.

1) Click the camera button on your Instagram app, and either take a photo or upload one as usual.

2) Pick a filter, write your caption, then click “OK” in the top corner (above your caption).

3) Click the back arrow, marked below, then “Save as Draft.”

3. When you’re ready to post, click the camera icon (as you do for a normal post), then go to “Manage.”

4. Select the draft post you wish to share, and proceed as you would normally!

Bonus tip: Use the WhenToPost app to find the best time to share to your page, plus get reminders of when it’s time to post your draft!

Danielle Lambert
Founder at Snout School
As a veterinary practice manager at Quinebaug Valley Veterinary Hospital, Danielle became a little.... obsessed with social media and online marketing.

In 2013, she started SnoutSchool.com, a website dedicated to teaching veterinary professionals social media, step-by-step. Over 1000 veterinary professionals have taken her online courses or read her e-book, The Ultimate Guide to Facebook for Veterinary Hospitals.

In addition to helping hospitals, Danielle works with veterinary industry clients, such as the Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) and Dr. Andy Roark, to better their online presence.

Danielle has spoken about social media at veterinary conferences, such as the NAVC. She brings a uniquely practical style to all of her speaking events and workshops. Visit the contact page if you're interested in having Danielle speak at your next event.
