Did you hear the news? You can now schedule posts to Instagram!! This is HUGE! No more setting reminders, no more remembering that you forgot to post, no more spontaneous posts! But there is one catch. You can only schedule posts through Instagram partners. Here’s a list of what that entails.
To help you get started scheduling your Instagram posts right now, I’ve compiled a list of platforms that you can use.
Currently, it looks like Hootsuite and Sprout Social might be the only two that have launched their platforms.
Hootsuite Instagram: $19/month for up to 10 social profiles, 1 user: Schedule and Publish images directly from Hootsuite Dashboard and Mobile App to IG Business Account.
Sprout Social: the cheapest plan is $99/month for up to 10 social profiles.
Here is who I expect will embrace a way to schedule IG very soon, since they are partners and currently do push notifications for scheduling IG:
Tailwind: Tailwind for Instagram Plus Plan is available for $15/month.
Sendible: For one user and up to 4 social media accounts, pricing on the Micro package starts at $24/month when billed annually (ideal for solopreneurs). If you run a large team or agency, you’ll find one of their higher tier packages more suitable.
If you know of a platform that is currently allowing you to schedule IG photos, let me know so I can add it to the list.
