Please keep me informed two days in advance.

Please keep me informed two days ahead of time.

Please keep me informed two days earlier.

Which one sounds more natural ? Or more appropriate to use.

I would say Please tell me two days ahead of time. The phrase keep me informed suggests an ongoing type of thing.
