WHICH TOOLS DO YOU RECOMMEND TO MANAGE + GROW MY INSTAGRAM!

01

There is a confusing amount of tools, programs and services out there to help you build your Instagram account. I recommend you to only use programs which are Instagram approved partners or tools which do not go against Instagram's terms + services. My personal favourites which are safe to use are:

- Tailwind to schedule, find hashtags and auto-post to Instagram - READ BLOG POST
- Adobe Lightroom to edit your images with presets and filters
- Creative Market to shop presets, graphics and Instagram templates 
- IconoSquare for advanced Instagram analytics
- SnapWidget to display your Instagram feed on your blog
- UNUM to play around and plan your feed

There are many different  amazing Instagram feed styles; colourful, moody, video content, puzzle grids, artistic or just unique. Find a look which suits you and then stick to it. Consistency is key to creating a beautiful theme. Also, are you a brand, biz or blogger with a website? Think about your brand style so it matches your overarching theme. If you are having trouble you can always buy presets (filters) or templates on Creative Market to start out.

My best tip for being more consistent on Instagram, is to actually take the time to plan out your feed 30 days in advance. Here is what you can do: 

1. Prepare and select 30 images and edit them in Lightroom 
2. Write captions which suit the image, which either inspires, motivates or helps your audience. Cycle through 4-6 topics to talk about, which are relevant to your audience and business 
3. Select relevant Hashtags (up to 30) for each post. - READ BLOG POST
4. Schedule your posts in Tailwind, which will auto-post you posts to Instagram over the next month (Start your Free Trial Here)
5. Experience how this helps you free up time to actually engage with your audience. Reply to comments and check out your audiences content
