3 Tools To Make Your Instagram Efforts More Efficient
Instagram is by far the most visual platform in the social media space. While it still remains difficult to put an exact measurement of ROI on Instagram, many brands are rocking this platform by giving their users a visual experience of what the brand is like. With beautiful scenery, clever use of filters, and the perfect angle, anyone can capture an astonishing picture. The only problem with Instagram is that they still haven’t made the application available to desktop users. With Instagram being very limited to the mobile devices, marketers often struggle to use Instagram efficiently. That’s why we set out to find 3 tools that can help you save time and costs.
We discussed Statigram earlier last month in our article about growing an Instagram community. The tool comes up again as we found it to be so valuable to the professionals who use Instagram. Statigram is so much more than just another tool that allows you to view photos on the web. This web app alternative provides users with very beneficial features including statistics, timeline integrations, and a custom tab just for Facebook. This tool is useful in business by giving you the opportunity to measure the metrics of your most liked photos, total likes received, and average number of likes and comments per photo. With this information combined, Statigram allows you to create a follower growth chart so that you can monitor your performance on a timely basis. My favorite part of Statigram is that it even maps out a picture of where your followers come from. Pretty cool, huh?
Managing an Instagram account may be easier when you first start out since there are only so many photos to manage in the beginning. As you grow, the number of photos submitted can grow immensely. Because it may be difficult to navigate through a large database of pictures, it may be in your best interest to have a repository of these entries. There’s also been a lot of talk about Instagram and what it may do with its data, so Instarchive lets you download all of your photos into a single archive where you can navigate through easily and organize them however you wish. This also comes in handy by having a backup of all the data you have created on the platform. This tool is simple to use and its always better to be safe than sorry, so make the best of it and save your content.
This is another tool that we discussed earlier that we felt would help build a community. There’s a reason why we feel this way. In a marketer’s perspective, we want to use what works, but we also want to find the most efficient way of doing it. How difficult would it be to market a brand with just a phone? Although many brands have done this, it requires much more time than the average business owner cares to spend on social media. With good reason, there’s no sense in spending more time than required on a social platform. It can quickly become overwhelming, and nobody is effective when overwhelmed. Webstagram is a simple web gallery of your instagram, however it comes with additional features like those of Facebook which make it quite easy to comment, like a photo, and follow other users. If there’s any tools we’d recommend, it’s definitely these three. They’re just too good to pass up.
However, just because we find these three useful doesn’t mean that other tools don’t work. In fact, if you have something else that you use for your business or brand, we’d love to discuss them with you as we’re always striving to find the newest and best things out there.
