MWH 304: How long should I be spending on Instagram each day?

On this week’s podcast episode, I’m going to answer a question from my Mums With Hustle community which is “How long should I be spending on Instagram each day?


Here’s the truth: your ability to make revenue from your Instagram presence is NOT dependent on how long you spend marketing your business on Instagram.

It’s not about the amount of time or the number of your Instagram posts, Reels or IG Lives…

It’s about your ability to use Instagram intentionally, to build an audience, and have them go from being a follower to becoming a customer.

Here are some questions to guide you:

  • How can you use Instagram intentionally to grow your business?
  • What role does Instagram play on your online marketing ecosystem?

I’d very much love to hear your answer to these questions. Send me a DM on Instagram @mumswithhustle or email me at!

Also, I do recommend that you do an Instagram action daily. Action does not necessarily mean creating or posting content, it’s about you being engaged with your audience.

Members inside of the Social Method Society know this because each month, we create them an intentional Instagram Content Strategy Calendar.

This calendar has daily prompts / actions for our members to take that sees them intentionally marketing and growing their business with Instagram.

If you find that you’re showing up on Instagram inconsistently or you’re not sure of what to post, I’d love to support you with education and training on how to use Instagram as a business owner (which is very different to how we use Instagram as a general user).

Head over to and pop your name on the waitlist! I’d love to welcome you into our community and be your mentor, your cheerleader and your support system in growing your beautiful business and achieving your own Life By Design.

Until next week, stay happy in your hustle.
