Onlypult vs. AiSchedul – Which Instagram Scheduler Is Better?

Keeping with our series comparing Instagram tools from around the web, today we’re looking at Onlypult.

What is Onlypult? According to their website,

“Onlypult – is a scheduled posting service for Instagram. You can upload your photos and videos right from your computer, also you can edit your pictures, manage multiple accounts simultaneously, and let your SMM-specialist manage your posts without giving them direct access to your Instagram account.”

Onlypult is right in our neighbourhood of Instagram scheduling tools, so we decided to put it to the test against our own Instagram scheduler, AiSchedule.

Our comparison consisted of five categories:

  • How do you set up the scheduler?
  • What types of media can you post?
  • What can you do with the scheduler?
  • What do you get for free?
  • How many accounts can you connect to the scheduler?
  • How much does the scheduler cost?
  • Conclusion

Onlypult vs. AiSchedul– a comparison of the two Instagram schedulers.

Uploading and scheduling posts to Instagram with AiSchedul is as easy as dragging and dropping.

After dragging your photo or video into the rectangle, click “Save” before you continue.

TagScout save post

Remember, you can also schedule multi-photo, and even multi-video posts.

Supported formats for photos are JPG and PNG, and supported formats for video are MP4, 3GP, MKV, and AVI.

After uploading your photo(s) or video(s), you can:

  • tag people
  • crop your post (fit entire photo or crop to 1080px x 1080px)
  • rotate your post

From here, scheduling your post can be accomplished in 5 steps:

  1. Write your caption
  2. Add your hashtags (your hashtags will be posted as a comment to make your caption look cleaner and increase post engagement)
  3. Choose the date and time you want your post to go live (or check the box to “Post Immediately”)
  4. Choose which accounts you want your post to be posted on (you can schedule the same post for multiple Instagram accounts)
  5. Finish scheduling by clicking the green “Schedule Post” button

After hitting “Schedule Post”, you’re post is officially scheduled. Come the date and time of your scheduled post, your post will automatically post to Instagram without any effort on your part.

You can see all of your upcoming scheduled posts from your dashboard, as well as all of your past scheduled posts using AiSchedul’s scheduler.

If you want to change something about an upcoming scheduled post, you can simply hit “Edit”, make any desired changes, and hit “Schedule Post” to save your changes.

Caption Spintax

If you are posting the same post with the same caption across multiple Instagram accounts, you can use AiSchedul’s Spintax feature to avoid being flagged by Instagram.

When posting the same post to multiple Instagram accounts, Instagram can sometimes mistake your posts for spam and flag your account. To help you avoid this, AiSchedul’s Spintax feature allows you to easily create multiple different versions of the same caption.

Using Spintax in your captions is as easy as including the following format in your original caption: {Phrase 1 | Phrase 2 | Phrase 3}.

Here’s how it looks in a real caption:

To give you an idea of how the above caption would work when posting to three Instagram accounts, one account would post with a caption including “time”, another account would post with a caption including “adventure”, and another account would post with a caption including “stay”.

The more variables you include in your caption, the more variations of your original caption can be posted.

Hashtag Suggestion Tool

When choosing the hashtags you want to attach to your post, you can also use AiSchedul’s search tool to find the most popular hashtags related to your post without having to leave AiSchedul.

According to Onlypult, audience analytics “shows the quantity of your followers, the growth of their quantity within a chosen period, the maximum growth of followers within a chosen period, and also the average growth within a chosen period.”

Engagement analytics shows you “the number of posts, the amount of total likes, the number of comments for a chosen time period, the average likes per post and the average comments per post.”
