Best Social Media Tool for Instagram Scheduling

33 replies
I'm looking for the best tool for scheduling posts on Instagram. So far, I've been using buffer, but it started becoming slightly unreliable today. Not a deal breaker, but it just made me want to see what else is out there.

Here's what I'm looking for in a tool:
1. Ability to post single images to Instagram wall <-- buffer does this
2. Ability to post multiple images to Instagram wall <-- buffer allows this but only with a notification to your phone then you manually post.
3. Ability to post video to Instagram wall <-- buffer does this
4. Ability to post to Instagram Story
5. Ability to add location to posts <-- buffer does this
6. Ability to crop video to square <-- this would be a big bonus

Are there any close competitors when it comes to these features?

    There are many tools for scheduling an Instagram account, but I prefer ScheduGram. It is one of the most popular tools for scheduling Instagram posts.

    Here are some features of ScheduGram:
    • Upload photos and videos from the web
    • Crop, add filters and text or rotate images
    • Post Instagram updates now or schedules them for later
    • Bulk upload multiple posts for Instagram
    • Manage multiple Instagram accounts

    I have always wanted to try Sprout Social. It is a full social media scheduler with analytics, social calendar, and I believe will achieve most of what you are looking for. I currently don't have the budget to try it out yet, which is the only reason why I have not.

    I use Buffer right now as well, but Sprout Social was one software that has peaked my interest from the beginning.

    Jarvee is quite powerful. Post scheduling along with automation features. Only gripe is it runs off windows only.

    Tailwind* is mostly known as automated scheduling and analytics app for Pinterest, but they recently expanded their feature set to include Instagram scheduling.

  • Hi,
    You can try:
    1. Social Bakers
    2. HootSuite
    3. Later.com

    HootSuite is the best option for me. I like interface (you can see the feed with your posts and manage it without using the apps themselves), scheduling works perfectly (no problems since 2016), ability to see your post as it will look after posting. I bought $29/month subscription and it's enough for me.
