Instagram is one of the most popular social networking platforms with 1 billion active users.
Many businesses are taking advantage of this popularity of Instagram and with regular activity, they reach many audiences.
As a business owner, Digital marketer or social network expert; You know that even if you save an hour by scheduling posts, how far you will go-ahead from your plans.
It is important for businesses to do everything on time, as planned.
In order to work effectively on Instagram, you need an Instagram management tool to build and manage your Instagram strategy.
In this article, we want to introduce you to Publer and its alternatives, which is a planning tool for scheduling your posts on various social networks.
Publer is a website that makes it super easy for you to get great quality merchandise for your teens or your events.
We are really big fans of Publer platforms and we are here today to tell you a little bit about how we use it to change our social media.
It’s wonderful to have a platform that all of us can use and manage our social media, it’s like having a public virtual superhero that makes everything easier for us.
Publer is a scheduling tool for managing your social network.
You can manage all social media platforms including Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest through a dedicated dashboard.
Now, we are going to dive into how you can use it.
Firstly, it allows you to schedule across multiple social networks. Also, it can do some others tasks like customizing the post based on the social networks.
So if you are posting to more than one social network it will become handy. For example, if you are posting to Facebook then you want more photos and if you want a shorter text, you can do that on Twitter. Also, you don’t want to use emojis on LinkedIn, so you can customize those posts for different social networks.
Plus, you can share more than one post at once using a CSV file, so we use this feature for bulk scheduling with uploading CSV files.
You can have many posts redy and publish them altogether at once.
So you don’t have to manually do all of that, it will automatically set those ties to those posts.
You can also let the Publer schedule them based on the time interval you set that you prefer to post.
This way, you can say “look we only want to post between 1 p.m and 3 p.m!” and Publer would just post end up in those times for you.
One fantastic thing that we have not seen anywhere else is the professional feature of watermarking automatically on your photos and videos.
You upload a photo to your own video and it automatically places a watermark on your video. This just makes posts really look chic and also, the overall view looks more professional. Plus, it means that f it is shared across the internet or anywhere else, you will get the credit for it.
Also, we like the fact that it can add a signature to the end of every social media post. So if you have particular hashtags that you use in every post, a particular URL or email that you want to use every single time, it can be added automatically rather than to type it out every single time. Publer does that for you and adds them to the end of every post.
We can use Publer to have a team of various people across Europe.
It is very helpful for us to define different access for different people. You know, you can set admin levels and assign them to the team members.
Moreover, you can set the access level such that they have just access to a particular platform. If you only want one person able to upload to your LinkedIn then you can simply define the access in that way.
We find these customizable admin levels incredibly useful.
This new feature is really useful to see what is happening with your accounts. How many people have viewed my social media posts? Which topics do they prefer?
Using this platform, you can assess your performance in different social media networks which helps you decide which resources to devote to which platforms.
