I is for INSTAGRAM
And all the apps that go with it…
Schedugram is a website (they’re currently working on the app) where you can schedule Instagram posts. It’s every business owner’s best friend and is also used a lot by social media managers worldwide who manage several Instagram accounts for various clients and brands. Here at Dream & Do, we use Schedugram for our clients when designing and implementing their social media strategies. It works a treat.
If you have a business Instagram, but then a personal Instagram as well, and you don’t want to give up one for the other, Schedugram is perfect. You can schedule days, weeks or months of posts, including the first comment of up to 30 hashtags. All for $20 a month.
It saves time and energy in having to decide what to post each day, forgetting to post during a crucial time (such as when you sleep through your alarm and miss the morning social media traffic!) and you don’t need to log in and out of several accounts regularly. Other team members can also post on the same Schedugram account, instead of having to use their phones.
Another thing we love about Schedugram is that the business can continue to have an online and social media profile, even when we need a break to “switch off” on holidays or over the weekend. It looks like you’re still growing your business, but you’re kicking back with a cocktail or watching Netflix in bed.
Marielle Bagus, founder of social media management start-up Concept Jungle, says: “Small business owners wear so many hats and always have a million things to do. If you've taken the time to create content, scheduling tools are a blessing. They automate the posting process so you don't have to worry about it day-to-day. Simply upload your content and set when you want it posted - some programs even suggest the optimal posting time based on your audience.”
Other scheduling programs we’ve heard are great: Hootsuite, Latergram, HopperHQ
