Instagram is a rapidly growing photo and video sharing platform with more than 150 million users and 16 billion photos shared. Over 55 million photos are shared on Instagram to a very engaged community every single day. If you're just starting in the Digital Marketing world, we recommend you keep it as basic as possible. If you think you're ready to go in to the big leagues: here are four Instagram tools to help you become more efficient with Instagram.
- Piqora is arguably one of the best social media management tools for Instagram. It provides analytics for when to post next, hashtag and contest tracking, interaction management as well as posting your photos via desktop.
- Repost is another great app to add to your Instagram repitoire. You know one a social media best practice is to share some of your followers/fans posts. Enter Repost, which works the same way as the retweet button on Twitter. With this app, you can repost photos on Instagram whether on iOS or Android. After you install the Repost app, you can start browsing through pictures. You can like or comment on pictures and also repost. Just click the repost button on images you'd like to share.
- Postso is another posting and scheduling tool. It was initially created for Instagram, but other platforms have been added over time. It’s a paid platform with a 14-day trial. In general, you probably just take pictures when you are out and about and share them instantly with Instagram. But what if you want to share a bunch of pictures? Rather than sharing them all at once, it might make more sense to schedule them. Postso provides the functionality to do exactly that.
- Another app to add to your repository is Pic Stitch. This app combines a few photos into a collage. You know, in the event that one photo isn’t enough and you don’t want to spam your followers with multiple photos. Use it especially for behind-the-scene moments or special events. Pic Stitch is available for iOS and Android. It is great!
