Support your posts with an Instagram scheduler
Have any other Instagram post ideas? It doesn’t matter what they are: things to post on Instagram for business, things to post on Instagram to get followers, anything. Share them in the comments below!
With all of these new ideas, you’re going to be pumping out a lot of content. When this happens, as explained in our guide 62 Ways Proven Ways to Grow Your Instagram in 2018, you’re going to need an Instagram scheduler. This way, instead of having to upload each any every post through your phone, you can conveniently upload all of your posts at once from your desktop and schedule them for days, weeks, and even months ahead!
AiSchedul’s scheduler is perfect for this. You can upload and schedule posts from your desktop, create its caption and hashtags, tag anyone relevant to your post, and even choose whether you want your hashtags in your caption or in the first comment! Unlike a lot of other schedulers available, AiSchedul also doesn’t require you to double verify before you post through its scheduler.
For example, with scheduling tools like Buffer, even if you upload your post from your desktop, you still have to confirm on your phone before your content is actually posted. This can be very inconvenient if your posts are scheduled for the middle of the night, early in the morning, or other general times when you can’t access your phone. No phone verificaiton, no posting.
With AiSchedul, however, just upload your posts from your desktop, hit “Schedule”, and walk away. No phone verification needed.
So now you know 50 things to post on Instagram and the quickest and most convenient to upload your posts once you’ve made them. You’re all set!
