At Mobloggy, we love sharing our expertise in social media, and in the recent weeks we posted about powerful benefits of Instagram marketing for your business, together with essential steps for a powerful Instagramming routine. If you’ve read through, you might feel like this channel requires a lot of work, and that is true. Below is a run-down of 5 essential tools that you want to use to boost your Instagram efforts – 5 tools that we use ourselves. Use them to their full potential and one day you might enjoy Buzfeed fame like some other pro #Igers have.
Understand the examples as concepts, not as the only alternatives available. Software we present here does have competitors, and the ones we hand-picked are our proven personal favorites. All of the tools featured here are free and we are giving them shout-outs without receiving compensations in any form. Getting likes and followers on Instagram is super important and it can be quite difficult to gain them, unless you target your audience using hashtag provided by KENJI! Some people evenbuy likes on Instagram to accomplish the same effect.
Statigram is amazing. “All Instagram online”. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Log in with your Instagram account and enjoy the magic.
Find your most engaged followers. That allows you to strengthen valuable relationships, as giving extra love to the most engaged people is a powerful community building practice.
See who unfollowed you. This helps you evaluate your posting consistency by digging into why those people tapped that ugly button.
See a break-down of your growth stats – just to make yourself feel great, to brag to your client, or to be able to plan for near future.
Go through your content and see which posts did best. That shows you what works and what you should do more/less of.
See what percentage of #instalove you get comes from fols. That gives you a hands-on idea on how to work your brand voice and tone, as knowing this stat shows you who it actually is that you talk to.
Optimization. A key tool for a dedicated #iger. As depicted in the screenshot below, this tab tells you what times and days are best for you to post in. Instagram does not allow scheduling through external services, therefore knowing the stat gives you a high competitive advantage. No matter how many great blog posts about best-practice of timing posts you’ve read, your own community is unique and knowing it well gives you a wealth of decision-making ground. What happened in our own experience is that a large and highly engaged group of following was in Japan – the different time zone brought along ideal times that we would not have expected.
