If you don’t have a Facebook, it’s worth it to create an account just to access the creator studio! You can now schedule your Instagram posts AND stories (YASSSSS) through that feature, which makes our time spent posting 100% more efficient. I haven’t tested IG, but I know you can batch schedule content on Facebook up to 6 months in advance! (yes, I am that person!) There is also a feature that shows the exact times and days that the majority of your followers are online, so you can schedule your posts accordingly. Pair that with your branding photos and you can spend one weekend scheduling your content for months in advance so the only thing you have to worry about is engaging in the comments!!
This app literally has every type of template you could ever possibly think of, and if it doesn’t you can create your own! They have cute templates for creating quote posts, the ability to set your branding colors, and they even have an option for animated Instagram posts! This is my #1 recommendation for creating aesthetically pleasing and coherent content.
3. Preview App
This is a free app that allows you to upload your photos and create a grid layout so you can see what your feed is going to look like before you post. It takes the guesswork out of trying to match similar posts because now you can visually see if they work together or not. You can also write your captions and hashtags directly in the app to copy later if you want to post to Instagram manually.
4. Highlightcover app
Provides cute customizable icons for story highlight covers. I love that this app has the option of gradients, marble, and other patterns instead of just a solid background color.
5. Insta Rocket Borders
You can add a ring around your Instagram border. It’s eye-catching and will help you stand out. And if you use one that is a similar color to the story highlight ring, it encourages your followers to click on your image!
