Many business owners today have recognized the importance of using Instagram in their marketing efforts. As a leading photo-sharing website, Instagram has a great potential of attracting more people who can eventually become your customers.
But with time constraints sometimes, it’s not possible for busy business owners to post an update on a daily basis or several times a day on this popular photo-sharing network as much as they want to. Thankfully, there are tools available now that you can use to schedule your posts.
Instapult is a web-based tool that lets you manage multiple Instagram accounts. It also allows users to invite other administrators to help them manage accounts.
But while Instapult allows you to upload single images only, you can still edit your photos and apply filters. Scheduled posts can also be deleted any time.
This tool has three paid plans available but you can try it for free for a week.
Latergramme can schedule your posts on Instagram whether on a desktop or via their mobile iOS app but you have to do the posting yourself. And only individual images are allowed
With ScheduGram, you can upload single and multiple photos and videos and schedule them for posting on Instagram. After uploading your images, you can edit them to how you want them to show on the site. You can crop, retouch and add effects to your photos.
When scheduling, you can also request for an email notification once your photos have been published. Additionally, you can give several users access to the multiple accounts that you manage in case you need assistance in scheduling posts.
ScheduGram has a free trial offer and if you like how it works, you can subscribe to its monthly subscription for a minimal fee.
TakeOff lets you schedule the posting of your images but it does not publish them for you hence, you need to do it yourself. Also, you can’t apply filters and effects to your photos as you need to open a separate editor to edit them.
TakeOff’s edge over similar tools such as Latergramme is the fact that it has a mobile app for both Android and iOS devices. A benefit of using TakeOff as well is it provides suggestions through hashtags and recommends the best time to post when your followers are actively engaging on Instagram.
Managing multiple accounts is also allowed and a free trial is available.
