3 TOOLS FOR INSTAGRAM THAT CHANGED MY BUSINESS FOR THE BETTER (secrets of the trade and tools you've probably never heard of) May 05 2016 3 Comments
I'VE BEEN STUDYING INSTAGRAM FOR A COUPLE YEARS NOW
and trying to grow my followers and expand my business through this social media platform. I went from 500 followers last summer to over 3500 followers 16 months later. I seriously love instagram and truly believe in the power of it for growing your brand and gaining new customers and the right type of followers. The engaging followers who love you and your brand for you and your products!
THESE 3 TOOLS THAT CHANGED THE WAY I VIEW MY INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT
without them I don't think I could have grown my instagram following so much or increased my brand awareness so well.
1. AFTER LIGHT
this editing program allowed me to make consistent edits to all my photos to create a beautiful feed. It eventually has become muscle memory and I don't have to think about it to much, which saves me time when I'm trying to run so many other aspects of my business.
2. PLANOLY (FORMERLY PLANOGR.AM)
this has changed my life! Out of all the apps. this is the one I pay a monthly fee for and I truly, truly believe in this one! I use it to organize my entire feed and store photos so I can keep on the ball! (p.s. if you do sign, I'd be so grateful if you use my referral link ---> https://www.planoly.com/referral/r3v802ikpt ) It also schedules posts (sends a notification to your phone so you can just post it) instagram does not allow automatic scheduling like facebook does. There is also a FREE version now, it just doesn't include as many photo uploads.
I don't actually pay for this one, I just signed up for the free 7 day trial, took a screen shot of best times to post and went to town from there. It was great to know when my followers were engaged and interacting, compared to when they weren't. Iconosquare was nice because it actually told me when MY followers were online, instead of just the average followers for the industries that you can access with a quick google.

MY BACKGROUND IS IN MARKETING
My background is in marketing. I went to school for Marketing management and fell in love with marketing at the age of 15 when I ran my first company. That's how I knew I wanted to study marketing after that first summer running my business. So it's a SUPER big passion of mine to help entrepreneurs step up their insta game.
