Make Your Life Easier With These Handy Instagram Scheduling Tools
Social media marketing needs consistency to be successful, but geez louise does it get tiring posting every day! We are only human, after all.
Luckily, technology has met the demand with clever scheduling tools that allow you to create and schedule Instagram posts, then they are automatically published, while you sit back and relax.
We’ve got 3 of our favorites right here! Let’s jump right in.
Works with: Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook
Pro: Free scheduling for 30 posts per month
Con: You need to buy the premium version if you want to post videos
Later is a nifty little tool that gives you the “bigger” picture when it comes to scheduling posts. Not only do you get up to 30 free posts per month (which is awesome if you only post once per day), but you can preview the entire post before scheduling it.
It also lets you synchronize pictures directly from Dropbox and Google Drive, so you don’t have to waste time saving them on your phone’s camera roll.

Autogrammer is another great scheduling tool that allows you to create posts, edit your images and schedule them all in one easy-to-use setting. Best of all, once your posts are scheduled, you can forget about ‘em. While other scheduling tools require you to go back in and manually hit “publish” to make a post go live, Autogrammer will take care of that baby step for you.
