DKSP EP:36 – 20 Instagram Marketing Tools to Boost Your Marketing Strategy and Engagement

What’s Your Biggest reason to HATE Instagram, if at all you are?

I seem to have started loving this picture sharing social media site. If you had asked me the above question about 6 months back, I would have had at least 12 different reasons for hating Instagram.

And most of the reasons would have been around the flexibility to use the tool, the usability, lack of automation, dearth of content to post etc. I am sure, your reason for hating them would also be something similar to these.

Then one day I came across this tool, that solved one of my biggest problems with Instagram – Automation. And that was the day when everything changed.

[social_quote duplicate=”no” align=”default”]If you hate doing something and you know the reason why, then you are sure to find a tool or, service that solves that problem.[/social_quote]

It is true. It is just a matter of searching online and you are sure to find a lot many people who have the same problem. And where there are a lot of people who have the same problem, there is bound to be a tool, a way, a method or, a service that will simplify it or, provide a resolution to it.

20 Instagram Marketing Tools to Fall in Love With

With Instagram gaining on popularity both because of the high levels on engagement and the many options available to market and with Instagram introducing Business Profiles, it was just a matter of time that you started seeing marketing tools that could simplify marketing on Instagram.

There are hundreds of services that can automate or, simplify most of the activities that we do on Instagram. But most have a similar limitation. And this limitation has nothing to do with how they operate. In fact these limitations are driven by the way Instagram works, more so because of the fact that Instagram is an app-only social media site.

It is here that my quest started to find tools that did not require a lot of intervention and could work on autopilot to some extent. And for that to happen, these tools needed to be a PC based tool.

And you would see that most of the Instagram Marketing tools that we are going to discuss today are Computer based tools. I am sure you would fall in love with them, at least some of them for sure, if not all.
