3 Pinned Post Strategies for Your Landscape Business on Instagram

In the landscaping industry, Instagram is your secret weapon for showcasing your stunning work. No one can scroll past a photo of a beautiful landscape design, a perfectly manicured lawn, or a brand-new patio. 

However, as time goes by, your posts can get lost in the shuffle, and some crucial content may fade into the background. This is where the magic of pinned posts comes into play. This simple process keeps relevant posts at the top of your profile so your audience can find them easily.

But it’s crucial that you pin the right ones. Read more to discover what pinned posts are all about, and the three must-have pinned posts that will keep your clients and leads hooked!

What Are Pinned Posts? 

Think of pinned posts like sticky notes on your Instagram profile, they play a crucial role in highlighting important information. They hold a special place at the top of your profile, making them the first thing your visitors encounter. It’s like having a friendly crossing guard directing your audience to the most important and relevant content.

Regular posts are important, but they can get lost in your feed, whereas a pinned post will always stay at the top of your profile, making it hard to overlook. This means that anyone visiting your page can’t miss it, whether it’s contact information, services, recent blog posts, or important announcements.

This saves your clients or leads valuable time that would otherwise be spent searching for information on your website, and let’s be honest, in the green industry, we all have places to be!

Pinned posts also offer versatility as they can be switched out as often as needed, allowing you to keep your profile fresh and up to date-with the latest developments and promotions.
