    Hi,

    I have an IG account where I advertise my products. Is it wrong to post the same pic more than once. I have 17 posts right now all unique but what if I want to rotate those 17 post and post them over and over. Is that bad IG etiquette? :)

    why not get hundreds of posts and run those over and over again? Then it will be hard to check.

    I know it's against IGs terms but I've done it a few times. If you were to do it, I'd recommend doing it with more than 17 posts as Omirag suggests. It is bad etiquette IMO.

    I can. But it takes me some time. Usually when I design it I create it in the FB format and twitter first. Then convert it into a square for instagram. So it takes me some time.

    Thanks for the heads up. Didnt know it was against IG's terms. What if I were to delete the older posts so that there would be no dupes?

    I would rather delete the older posts before posting the same photo so there would be no duplicates since you're only using 17 photos at the moment.

    I think I will just leave as is. I want to have some post history and likes. My account is at least 3 years old and I dont want to have posts that are only days old.

    You can use the same image several times. But it is necessary to do it through a large number of other images and with different filter.

    Another way you could approach it would be to have a "throwback" theme with a refreshed caption. Basically share a previous post, but also acknowledging that it's been posted before.

    I've never had any problems if I went about it cautiously.

    Would you enjoy a TV network that airs the same shows over and over again? People might tune into your ig for a bit, but what's making them stay?

    I sometimes repost the same image, but only if it's a higher performing image and i don't post until at LEAST 3-4 weeks in between the posts
