100+ Instagram Content Ideas for Business Owners

Instagram favors recency, meaning that in order to grow fast and consistently you need to be posting consistently.

After 48 hours your post pretty much isn't going to show up on people's feeds anymore. So... I hope you’re not spending 2 hours on each Instagram post like I used to for such a small window of opportunity!

There is good news though!

I found a better, faster, easier way to come up with a ton of content ideas AND the best part is this type of content will actually drive sales.

Why? Because with these content piece ideas, you’re educating and relating with your audience which helps to build your authority and build trust with your followers!


Alright, let’s start creating over 100 posts in 1 hour!


But, before I give you your prompts, here is what I need you to do:

  1. Get out your favorite pen or keyboard

  2. Answer: What are the 3 - 5 main pillars I talk about? 
    My example: Pinterest, Etsy tips, Email Marketing, Content Marketing, Beginning Stages of Starting a Business

  3. Set a timer for 1 hour and hit "start"

  4. Now, after the example copy and paste the 24 prompts into your favorite writing app and underneath each prompt write an answer for each of your content pillars:


My Example:

Prompt #4: One reason they’re struggling with (topic)

Pinterest: Because their profile does not reflect the needs and interests of their target audience. This means that the right people are not inclined to follow their account which means missed opportunities to get in front of the right audience again in the future.

Etsy tips: They don’t understand that their shop and listings need to be optimized from an Etsy standpoint and a consumers standpoint.

Email Marketing: They don’t have a welcome sequence or they have one, but it’s not authentic/it’s focused too much on making a sale and not enough on showing their list that they have solutions to their problems (lack of value and priming before the pitch).

Content Marketing: They are not focusing on content that will grab attention AND hold the attention of their audience.

Beginning States of Starting a Business: Focusing too much on answering “what is my niche?” and not enough experimenting to help them actually figure it out.

If you do this for each of your 5 pillars you will now have 120+ ideas!
