Loomly Vs Iconosquare

Hi all,
I'm trying to decide between Loomly and Iconosquare subscriptions. I am currently using Loomly but signed up for an Iconosquare trial (solely for analytics ). I prefer the analytics on this platform as I feel they're much fuller and more sharable).
I've run into the issue of the posting software Loomly uses, Zapier, not being able to automatically publish content on a few of the accounts I manage. This is an enormous inconvenience to me as I work from a timezone that's about 9 hours ahead of my clients. It's strange if I'm posting in the middle of the night (and not optimal timing for the accounts, according to analytics anyway).
Iconosquare uses IG API (a direct partnership rather than through a 3rd party software like Loomly..), so this fixes my above issue and is why I'm considering making the switch. I've tried too many times to set up posting on Loomly through Zapier, and it's just such a huge headache.

Are there any other pros/cons I might be missing? Which software do you prefer, and has anyone had a similar experience with the Loomly publisher they've corrected?

Iconosquare not updating?

It's not showing my new posts for 3 days now, not updating the number of likes on the posts it is showing, and it's also not showing any mentions even though I had some. My follower count isn't updated either. I contacted support but I won't hear from them until Monday. Anyone know how to fix this?

Iconosquare & verified Instagram Business account

Hey,
So I'm running social for a company on both FB and Instagram and we've got business accounts for both.
I've been mailed by Iconosquare stating that "From October 23rd, Iconosquare will be available for verified Instagram Business account users only."
Does this mean we have to try get the "Verified Badges" or no?

Thoughts Iconosquare?

As the title says it all, I've searched here but the last post regarding Iconosquare was back 2-3 years ago.
I know they've released a pay version only and was trying to get some opinions or insights for those who used/use it at the moment.

Note: many of the methods described below can be performed by our growth tool AiGrow. That includes targeted Liking, following, commenting, and DMing, scheduling and posting content for days, weeks and months ahead from your desktop, managing your DM inbox from your desktop, and joining or creating engagement groups to get more real comments and Likes on your posts.
Sign up for AiGrow VIP program here.
The landscape of Instagram is constantly changing. With updates rolling out on a near-monthly basis, the best ways to use the platform and gain Instagram followers are changing with it.
Fortunately for you, it’s our business to stay up-to-date and know the exact best practices to navigate your way through the evolving world of Instagram. Below are 67 proven and research-backed ways to skyrocket your Instagram followers going into the new year.

Dive into the new year with these 67 ways to grow your Instagram followers:

Hashtags, Captions, and Geotags

https://preview.redd.it/jign85etchw51.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&s=2b24ef9cce48f2cee25215a85eb4c774f8b08537
Use at least 11 and at most 30 hashtags: research shows that engagement goes up after the use of 11 hashtags.
Include hashtags that are relevant to your channel and content: attract your target audience.
Put hashtags in your comments: packing your caption full of hashtags just doesn’t look good. Place them as a comment instead. Plus, although it won’t carry as much weight as a comment from another Instagram user, placing your hashtags as a comment is an easy way to increase the number of comments on your post. The more comments you get on your posts, the higher your post engagement rate will be. The higher your post engagement rate gets, the more likely you’ll rank as a Top Post for your hashtags, and so on.
Include as many popular hashtags (greater than 100,000 posts) as possible: hashtags are your main form of distribution to potential new Instagram followers – the larger and more populated the hashtag, the more people can theoretically see your content. You can use tools like AiGrow to find popular hashtags in your niche.
Include smaller, more specialized hashtags: smaller, more niche hashtags contain less competition, which makes it easier for your own content to rank higher in the search results. This increases your chances of appearing in the “Top 9” grid results of a particular hashtag.
(Use with caution) Use hashtags known to help increase followers: it may not produce the most engaged following, but using hashtags like #L4L and #instafollow may prove a short-term solution to increasing Instagram followers.
Geotag your posts: when you geotag your posts, other people who post photos in your region will see your posts on the location’s page which increases content visibility.
Create a branded hashtag: branded hashtags are an easy way for other people to share your brand, build brand recognition, and get your name on as many different feeds as possible.
Write smart captions: paint a picture of what it was like to personally experience the content of your post. If it’s a vintage piece of clothing, what was the feeling you had when you found it? If it’s a location, what did it smell like? If you’re a photography page, what camera did you use to capture the post? What were the settings on your camera? The more detail you can give, the better.
Ask engaging questions in your captions: questions are an easy way to increase audience interaction. For a vacation post, for example, you could ask something as simple as “have a friend who needs a vacation? Tag them in the comments!”
Include a clear CTA: research has shown that including the words “Like” or “Comment” somewhere in your caption results in more likes (89% more) and comments. With more likes and comments comes a higher place in the hashtag search results. This means more visibility for your content, which means more potential Instagram followers. Aside from Likes and comments, you can also use the captions of your posts to direct attention to places like your bio. Whether you’ve linked to your website, your store, or another Instagram account, a simple “Check out the link in my bio!” is an easy way to drive more visitors to the link.
Place important words/information at the beginning of your captions: when people scroll through their feeds, post captions get cut off after a few lines. You want to make sure that the critical information is seen no matter how your posts are seen.
Include emojis in your captions: emojis make your captions stand out or emphasize particular parts of your caption. They have also been proven to lead to higher post engagement.

Engagement

Take time out of every day to interact with random people’s accounts within your channel’s niche: make yourself known and familiar throughout your community. Neil Patel found that for every 100 likes, he received roughly 6 followers. If you’re strapped for time, you can use tools like AiGrow to organically automate the process.
Interact with existing followers: there’s no point in gaining followers if you lose them within a week. Keep your followers around by building relationships with them. As explained more in-depth below, keeping your followers around can begin with something as simple as a welcoming DM after they’ve just started following you. You can send these DMs manually, or use a tool like AiGrow to automatically send customized DMs to every new person who starts following you.
Avoid drama: it’s very easy for your content to be taken out of context on Instagram. Smart, thoughtful responses to drama or controversy limit the potential for people to use your words or content in damaging ways in the future.
Or… Get involved with drama: if the Floyd Mayweathears or Connor McGregors of the world are any indication, there are few better ways to garner attention and potential Instagram followers than through drama and controversy. Though be warned – the kind of attention you get may not always be positive.
Develop a foundation of content (5-10 posts) before you begin seriously engaging with the community: you don’t want to convince someone to make the effort to check out your channel only to find out you don’t have any content to show. An empty profile isn’t attracting to a potential new follower.
Comment, Like, and follow people who are engaging with your competitor’s channels and posts: it makes sense that if people are already interested in a niche, as indicated by their interaction with a competitor, and your channel provides similar content, these people are likely to also be interested in what you do. If you can get these people’s attention, these people are much more likely to follow you than someone not already affiliated with your competitors.
Respond to all comments left on your posts: as explained in this article, responding to every comment is an easy way to double the amount of engagement you get on every post. While your responses won’t carry as much influence as the original comments, responding to every comment can turn 100 comments into 200 comments, which can signficantly contribute to your social proof and make your page look more trustworthy. While it’s easy to respond to all comments when you’re smaller, as you get bigger, responding to all comments can become a hassle, especially if the majority of them warrant the same kind of response. This is where using an auto response tool like AiGrow can come in handy.
Leave smart comments: writing something more than a spammy “Nice pic!” that conveys genuine interest in somebody’s post is more likely to make the owner of that post check out your channel. People in the community may also see this genuine comment and explore your channel, as well.
Hold contests where people have to like, follow, comment or tag someone to enter: if you are a company or any sort of brand, holding contests are a very effective way to quickly gain engaged followers. A simple contest may be to offer a giveaway (free product, shoutout, etc.) to a random new follower gained in the last month.
https://preview.redd.it/999h2vp1dhw51.png?width=699&format=png&auto=webp&s=40618020e7c66a21744e55f62baedadfa678acbb
Promote your Instagram on other platforms: if you have established audiences on other platforms (email lists, other social media platforms, website forums, etc.), these people are essentially already following you. Alert them to the presence of your Instagram and bring them over.
Use influencers to mention or tag your product/channel: if you can afford it, offer product discounts, free samples, and/or paid contracts to larger channels in exchange for tags and mentions. In some cases, similarly-sized Instagram pages will shout you out to their audience in exchange for you shouting them out to your audience.
Tag people when relevant: tagging people in your posts increases the brand visibility by making your content show up in the feeds of the people you tag.
Tag accounts you want to get the attention of: if overdone, this tactic can come off spammy. But when in moderation, you can get the attention of larger Instagram brands who might not have otherwise known you exist. For example, if you are a photographer and you know that your camera brand posts photos taken by its customers on Instagram, in addition to just tagging your posts with your camera brand’s branded hashtags, it would make sense to also tag that camera brand in photos that you take with their cameras.
Reshare your followers’ images, particularly ones where they’ve mentioned your channel/your product: sharing user-generated content encourages people to share photos of your content in hopes of you exposing their own channel to your audience, especially if their channel is smaller. It also conveys to visitors to your channel that you are established within your community, which makes it easier for them to trust that your channel is worth following.
Follow all of your friends on Instagram: it might seem a little hacky, but those who know you personally are more likely to be supportive and at least give you a follow.
Use paid Instagram/Facebook advertising: it costs you, but you are much more likely to draw the exact type of followers you want to your channel. Target by key demographic information: gender, age, and location. As people begin to roll in, you can understand who your audience really is, where they’re coming from, and what they like content-wise. You can then adjust accordingly.
Make your profile public (at least at the beginning): if you’re a smaller channel, potential new Instagram followers are less likely to make the effort to follow you just to see your content. At least wait until you have established yourself as an influential figure in the community before making your channel private.
Use Instagram engagement pods: Instagram engagement pods (or Instagram engagement groups) are groups of people on Instagram, typically with similarly-sized pages and followings, who help each out by commenting, Liking, and generally engaging with each other’s content. These pods are also a great way to connect with experienced members of your community and find useful advice. They are especially popular among smaller artists and businesses.

Content

https://preview.redd.it/iryq6wr6dhw51.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=49142038f45684349bba15f3556b8522edc8e565
Be active: post 1-2 times a day. Posting daily grows followers four times faster than posting less than once a week according to Tailwind.
Space out posts if you post more than once a day: too many posts uploaded close to one another can appear spammy on other people’s feeds. Posting too often also doesn’t give your content enough time to be seen and engaged by your followers
Post portrait over landscape: posts that are within 1080 px wide and 1350 px high will appear on people’s feeds without any borders or cropping. Posts within these dimensions appear bigger in feeds, drawing more attention and potentially leading to more engagement.
Don’t post low-resolution photos: there are way too many incredible photos on Instagram for you to be posting grainy, low-resolution photos. Even if your photo does show up on someone’s feed, if it’s surrounded by higher quality content, then your content is simply going to be ignored.
Create an editorial calendar: know what and how often you’re going to be posting before you begin posting. To get started, look at the top 10 profiles in your niche and do some competitive analysis. Pull the main themes and consistent qualities from their content (What are they posting? How often? Are there any consistent patterns having to do with color or shape?) and apply them into the creation of your own content. AiGrow’s free Instagram scheduler can help with this process.
  • A simple posting guide from Anthony Carbone: 1-1,000 followers = 1-2 posts/day, 1,000-10,000 followers = 2-3 posts/day, 10,000-50,000 = 3-4 posts/day, 100,000-500,000 = 5-6 posts/day, 500,000-1 million = 8-10 posts/day.
Advertise your top posts: the more likes, comments and general engagement a post gets, and the quicker you get that engagement, the higher up that post will appear when people search for related hashtags. Ideally, you want to reach the trending Top 9 grid.
Take note of what does well and create similar content: look at general engagement – likes, comments, reshares, etc. and more in-depth Instagram analytics (tools like Ink 361 and Iconosquare can help with this) to see which of your content is performing the best and incorporate this data into the creation of future content.
Look at things differently: take pictures and videos of common pictures (landmarks, tourist attractions, etc.) from a different perspective than has already been seen a million times before. One way to make this process easier is by using only one fixed camera lens. The restriction of not being able to zoom and/or switch out to another lens encourages you to be more creative in the way you frame your content.
Use partnerships and/or collaborations: creating content with another person/channel not only forces you to go outside of your own creative perspective, but partnerships also provide the opportunity to introduce your channel to another channel’s audience. When people see that a channel they are already following collaborated with someone else (you), these people can trust that this other channel must also be worth following.
Use Instagram Analytics: Instagram’s native analytics tool can provide you with such key information as the days on which your posts perform best, the time your posts perform best, and where in the world your audience is most concentrated. Depending on where your audience is, you might even have to take into consideration different time zones when posting.
Use 3rd party tools when necessary: you can take the bulk of grunt work out of growing your Instagram followers (scheduling, engagement, DMs, etc.) by using 3rd party tools like Buffer or AiGrow. The less you have to focus on the work supporting your content and channel, the more you can focus on creating the very best content possible.
Ditch the phone: make your content stand out by not limiting yourself to your camera phone. If possible, use a DSLR to take photos/videos, edit them on your computer if need be, send the files to your phone (or schedule them on your computer with tools like AiGrow), and then upload to IG.
Use videos: even if they’re just GIFs, 52% of marketing professionals rank video as the type of content with the best ROI. To you, that means more Instagram followers.
Post at 2 AM or 5 PM: if you have not yet uncovered the best times to post according to your specific audience, posting at 2 AM or 5 PM is a safe bet. Research shows that these times result in higher engagement.
Use the Mayfair filter: if you’re going to use filters (some research shows that pictures with no filters perform better), and you don’t want to put in the work to manually color correct your content, research shows that the Mayfair filter is the most effective filter for marketers.
Post on Sundays: similar to the time suggestion above, if you have not yet uncovered the best day to post according to your specific audience, posting on Sundays is a safe bet. The least amount of content is posted on Sundays, which provides more visibility for your own posts.
Combine multiple images into a collage: instead of uploading multiple photos into a single post, requiring the viewer to open up the post and scroll through them all individually, when possible combine all your images into one using tools like Photoshop or Canva. This way, potential followers can view all images with ease while scrolling your feed.
Consider the color of your content: research shows that posts with lighter colors, particularly blue, receive more likes than darker colors by a factor of 24%.
Include faces in your photos: Dan Zoella found images with faces in them received 35% more likes than those without faces.
Post behind-the-scenes photos: particularly for businesses, behind-the-scenes content conveys the human quality behind your brand and shows that you’re not just a robotic business.
Incorporate edges and structures into your photos: research shows that photos with clearly defined edges and structures receive 125% more likes than those without.
Make sure your images have a minimum dimension of 1080×1080: a minimum dimension of 1080×1080 helps to avoid pixelation and unwanted cropping/scaling.
Use “social listening”: use tools like Hootsuite to monitor not only where you’re being mentioned, but what is being said about your channel within your community. Use what people are saying as feedback to create better content.
Post according to when your target audience is online: if you’re targeting people with full-time jobs, post in the early morning, at lunch-time, or after 5 PM. If you’re targeting night workers, post later in the night and/or in the very early AMs. Understand who you are trying to attract to your channel and post according to when you think they would be online. Instagram Analytics can help you find this information.
Use Instagram Stories: nearly one in five stories results in a direct message. If you are a business, you should really be using Instagram stories, as a third of the most viewed stories are from businesses.
Adapt or die: Instagram is constantly rolling out updates affecting everything from content relevancy, to feed visibility to post editing features. Stay up-to-date on the Instagram landscape to ensure that your content is the best possible content it can be that it is being seen by as many people as possible. Adspresso has a great blog explaining new Instagram updates on a rolling basis.

Theme and goal

https://preview.redd.it/jhwjzyggdhw51.png?width=698&format=png&auto=webp&s=f873c6d19858764255469a0b37301737a6ec9bfd
Start with a goal or theme: if you are serious about growing your Instagram followers, you need to understand what your goal is and what kind of audience you want to attract. What is the purpose of your channel? Do you want to attract b2b or b2c clients? Attract branding deals? Simply get your name and/or work known? Having a goal and knowing your desired audience will help maintain consistency when posting content to your channel and attracting engaged followers. On the same note, understand that the more specific your channel theme, the fewer types of photos will flow with your channel, restricting the amount of content you can post.
Choose an appropriate profile picture: if you are a channel that specializes in selling vintage sneakers, a profile picture of your dog doesn’t convey that to potential Instagram followers. Craft a profile picture that speaks to your channel’s goal or theme.
Include any necessary information in your bio: include what your channel is, your credentials and a strong CTA.
Ensure there is a “flow” to your channel: some people follow you on an individual post basis, but some people follow your channel based on how your profile looks as a whole (the”grid” of your profile). When you look at the grid of your profile, how do your photos look together as a collected work – both aesthetically and content-wise? If someone new to your channel was to look at your channel, would they understand what you’re trying to convey?
Use split images: you may have noticed recently that some channels, particularly businesses and artists, use “split” images to create a unified picture on their grid. This is especially useful if you want to direct the attention of potential followers to one piece of content in particular, such as a new album, product line, or piece of art. Use tools like Planoly to make a split image of your own.
Use preset color palettes: an easy way to ensure a consistent color palette across all of your content and contribute to the “flow” of your channel mentioned above is to use preset color palettes from either Instagram or other tools like Photoshop or Lightroom. If you don’t want to make your own and are willing to spend a little money, a lot of bloggers sell their own presets.
Ignore “viewer envy”: when scrolling through Instagram, it’s easy to get discouraged and think that everyone is everywhere and doing everything except you. This can lead to getting discouraged about the production of own content – “my posts are so boring compared to that person’s….”. Understand that your own content might be sparking the same thoughts in someone else scrolling through their feed. Your Instagram followers are following you because your content doesn’t look like everyone else’s.
Use multiple accounts: using multiple Instagram accounts is helpful in a number of scenarios.
Scenario 1) One is if you are just starting out Instagram and want to test the traction you get in multiple niches. For example, if you are interested in both bmx biking and soccer, you could create two separate Instagram accounts – one account for biking, and the other for soccer. Over time, you could see which account is performing better and slowly begin to put more effort into that account.
Scenario 2) if you are a business with multiple products, services, and/or demographics. For example, if you are a sports attire business, you could create different a Instagram account for each sport that you offer products for. This way, you can more accurately target people who would be interested in each product.
Feel free to post outside of your theme, but transition slowly: if you would like to post outside of your channel’s theme, transition into different kinds of photos slowly so as not to disrupt the overall flow of your content. If a potential follower looks at your channel one day and loves your content, you don’t want them to return the next day to find completely different and unrelated content. You can lose potential followers this way.
You may have noticed that the “Content” section was by far the most explored section. This is because creating attractive, engaging content is by far the most influential factor in gaining more Instagram followers, plain and simple. Consistently creating incredible content, however, takes a lot of time and energy. Taking away from this time are supporting factors such as engaging in the community, responding to DMs, and tracking down potential new followers.
This is why we created AiGrow – to allow you to hand off the hard work of Instagram networking so that you can devote more time to the production of engaging content. Many of the most effective methods mentioned above, namely creating an editorial calendar, scheduling your posts, and genuinely engaging with your community, can be completely handed off to AiGrow.

Clean Your Instagram With a Fake Follower Check (10 Things to Look For)

Clean Your Instagram With a Fake Follower Check (10 Things to Look For)
Instagram now boasts over 800 million users and doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. Of course, like any popular social media platform, there is bound to be a portion of Instagram’s 800 million users that are fake.
https://preview.redd.it/izonarj21ow51.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=33ee35f8720981fee57ef17e822e5a966cf37191
Fake followers aren’t good for anybody. They dupe people into thinking they have a larger reach than they do and they dupe brands into choosing the wrong influencers to advertise their products.
Fortunately, conducting a fake follower check, whether it’s for your own channel or someone else’s channel, is pretty simple with the right guidance.
The key is to know what you’re looking for:

10 things to look out for when conducting your fake follower check

Engagement rate: if someone has 10,000 followers but only 2 comments and 5 Likes on every one of their posts, this could indicate that a large number of their followers are fake (or at least inactive/unengaged).
Who is engaging with posts: if the majority of a post’s engagement is coming from non-followers, this could indicate an unreliable and inactive follower base.
Location of followers: if a channel’s followers don’t make sense in relation to their own location and channel theme, those followers may have been purchased. For example, if a channel is a local dog food company based out of Los Angelas and the majority of its followers are from Siberia, that’s a red flag.
Bump in followers: if someone suddenly gains 10,000 new followers overnight, there’s a good chance that those are fake followers. Use a tool like Iconosquare to keep track of someone’s follower growth.
Drop-in followers: on the same note, if you notice that suddenly a channel has 10,000 fewer followers than they did the day before, this could indicate that Instagram cleaned up a bunch of their fake followers.
Channel content: if a channel’s followers don’t have any posts, haven’t posted in two years, or haven’t even made the effort to post a profile picture, there’s a good chance they are either fake or inactive.
Who they follow: if a channel’s followers are followed by or are following “Fan-buying” services, this could indicate that they themselves are fake or bot accounts.
Usernames: while not as common, channels with conspicuous names like “@followers4you” can be an indicator of fake accounts.
The character of followers: if a truck driver from North Dakota is being followed mostly by Russian supermodels and Indian bodybuilders, that’s a good sign that those followers were purchased.
A number of private accounts: random follows from private accounts with small or non-existent followings could indicate that those channels are trying to hide signs that they’re fake (no photos, inactivity for long periods of time, etc.).

How to avoid fake followers in the first place

Doing a fake follower check is one way to clean up your followers. Another much easier way is to avoid getting fake followers in the first place.
The reason people get fake followers in the first place is typically because they buy a huge number of followers in bulk with no regard for what those followers look like.
Taking the time to create relevant content and selectively engage with your target audience is obviously the best way to avoid this.
If you don’t have the time to do grow your Instagram on your own, there are ways other than buying your followers to quickly grow your following with real followers.
As Instagram has terminated any automated growth activities, using Instagram bots can lead to user shadowbanned (even getting removed forever!).

Never get shadowbanned with AiGrow VIP Growth Service!

To solve this issue, AiGrow has come up with a great option for its users to grow their IG accounts in terms of Engagement and Followers 100% guaranteed.

5 Best Instagram Planners in 2020

5 Best Instagram Planners in 2020

what are the top five Instagram planners and social media scheduler?

a question that comes up almost every single day is: what is the best social media scheduler?
Now before we dive into five Instagram planners, we are going to offer to you an alternative theory.
Now the schedulers can be great. there are some theories that scheduler decreases engagement and reach. we are here to tell you that is not the case.
the reason that some times scheduled content doesn’t perform as well as manually posted content is not because of the platform that you are using.
instead, it is because of the mindest surrounding people who use the schedulers.
They have a set it and forget it methodology.
where they just push out content and they don’t take the time to check-in and make sure that it is working to tweak their strategies, to see what is working and do more of that.
See what is not working and do way less than that.
Schedulers work if you put in the work to make sure that your content is awesome, engaging and wonderful.

The best thing about this tool is that it gives you ready-made content to share on your page if you don’t have enough time to produce your content.

Post and reward

this feature is really unique it basically allows you to grow your Instagram account through your existing fans and selling your products.
All you have to do is set the contest rules and automate your contest using AiSchedul. So you don’t have to do it manually and go back to check comment to see who actually follow these rules. instead, this tool will allow you to just automate everything before that and then it will remain automated throughout the whole period and you don’t have to worry about the whole manual processes of going back and checking and sending DMs manually. AiSchedul will send a message automatically with the coupon code to the winner.

Post Planner is amazing because it suggests to you all of the different content that is performed on other people’s profiles.
It gives you great ideas if you cant think of what is going to entertain, engage, or educate your audience. It also can manage groups and multiple pages. You can manage your Twiter and you are able to recycle content. So if you have some cornerstone content that you like to use regularly. Maybe its theme days in a Facebook group or maybe it is certain blog posts that you want to show up every so often in your content strategy, you are able to do it all with Post planner.
To get started on this platform, you must first purchase one of the packages starting at 3$ per month.

3-ContentCal

https://preview.redd.it/zivwssqxu1x51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=eee3445c211470eac36757540b5e9e28e290f9e0
This platform has some capabilities that the Post planner simply does not. For example, if you work with a team or if you have clients who fell the need to review all of your content before you send it out, you have the ability to build in a content calendar and go through an approval process.
You can use it internally with your team members so you can quality control all of the work that comes out under your name or if your client has a strict approval process which can be common in financial industries or medical industries, your client can ultimately have the final say so that you are not liable for anything going out that doesn’t make sense with their industry.
As soon as you enter your email, the registration form will appear as shown below.
Once you have completed the form, you can make the most of a free 14-day period.
https://preview.redd.it/vn8iw442v1x51.png?width=524&format=png&auto=webp&s=bfbde8922039c18c09e816b1d5fd7fc730deadc0
You will be redirected to the dashboard page when registration is complete and the dashboard exists for a couple of reasons most importantly this will be where you add calenders and invite users.

So firstly what is a calendar? think of a calendar as its own individual workspace or portal. within each calendar, you can connect a range of social media profiles, you can set up planing channels, you can invite a certain set of team members and definite approval process and you can create this one individual calendar.
In fact, this tool is built for teamwork and planning for teams, and it seems complicated to work with.

  • Contact Management
  • Keyword Filtering
  • Post Scheduling
  • Automated Publishing
  • Content Management
  • Multi-Account Management

ContentCal pricing

This one is a bit controversial. Not everybody loves this scheduler platform because it is not a true posting platform. PLANOLY is an awesome platform for planing out a visually appealing Instagram feed.
Now the thing about PLANOLY is that you cant actually post to Instagram from it which is why this is a controversial pick.
instead, it sends a reminder to your phone and you actually have to manually hit the post.

Feedly: Instagram RSS feed alternative for Iconosquare

Since the renewal of Iconosquare last month, I cannot use their URL anymore to add any public IG user to my feed. The URLs I already added, are no longer updated.
Websta still works, but I cannot create an RSS feed for every public IG user but some celebrities.
Do you know other alternative URLs to add an RSS feed of any public IG user to readers like Feedly?

I don't get any notifications for scheduled posts on Iconosquare. Why is that? I am using an Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML with Android 5.0.

Which Instagram tools do you swear by?

I'm not talking bots, but actual tools like feed planners, photo editing, analytics, hashtags, competitors, influencer search etc.
There's a ridiculous amount of service providers now and it would be a total waste of time to sift through them all. Which have been the most helpful for you?
For me, I've always been loyal to UNUM for feed planning, VSCO and Facetune for photo effects/editing, and Iconosquare for analytics (although it's entirely possible that these are considered outdated now.)
