4 Instagram Tools for Scheduling Instagram Updates


social media toolsIs Instagram a part of your social media marketing? Want to make posting to Instagram more convenient? Whether you’re in the middle of an event or on the road, there are scheduling tools to help you. In this article I’ll share four tools to schedule Instagram updates.

Why Use Tools to Schedule Instagram Posts?

Instagram was designed primarily as a mobile tool, so that’s where most interactions take place. Instagram wants users to capture events as they happen. While real-time posting is the best-case scenario, it doesn’t work for everyone at all times. If you’re using the native version of Instagram on a desktop, you can view Instagram content and interact with people you’re following, but you can’t upload anything. While there are a few options available to upload photos and videos to Instagram from a computer, none of these lets you schedule your content.
