Another helpful feature suggested by AiSchedul is reposting. Despite most of the similar apps, AiSchedul lets you not only repost photos but also repost videos on Instagram. Using this feature you can repost public Instagram accounts’ content by searching for HashTags, Locations, URLs, and Usernames.
In the following, we describe each one and tell how do they work.
Hashtags on Instagram are like keywords that let you find content related to a specific word or phrase. On AiSchedul, you can search for HashTags, see the related images or videos, and easily repost them on your own page.
Another way to repost on AiSchedul is to find and repost photos or videos of a special location. By selecting the “Location” tab from the list above, and entering a specific location, you can view and repost content on Instagram.
As you may know, Instagram lets users copy the share URL of public posts. If you have identified a photo or a video from a public account, simply copy its share URL and paste it to AiSchedul and repost it.
Finally, if you want to repost content from a specific Instagram page, you can enter the username on AiSchedul and view their posts to repost them easily.
Once you have chosen one of the ways described above, you can click on the “Repost” button below the content and share it on your Instagram account immediately or schedule it.

AiSchedul offers two different plans that one of them is totally free. Using the free version of AiSchedul, you can schedule up to 10 posts per month, schedule multiple contents, and tag people and locations.
However, if you want to schedule unlimited posts and stories, automatically respond to comments, and use all the AiSchedul features, you need to pay only 9$ per month which is really good in comparison with other similar platforms.
SmarterQueue offers you four different plans considering the type of your business. One of the best plans offered by this website is the one named “Custom”. Actually, as it may be obvious from its name, you can customize a plan with due attention to your needs. For example, you need to manage exactly 7 social profiles, post 100 contents per day and queue up to 50 posts. Actually, the prices for this plan are different for each person, but you will have to pay at least 13.99$ per month which is the price of the “Solo” plan. Using this plan you can set all the wanted requirements and pay upon your need.
The other plan offered by SmarterQueue is called “Business” and it costs 26.99$ per month. Using this one, you can manage up to 10 social profiles, share 20 posts per day, and queue up to 1000 posts per day.
As described in this article, SmarterQueue is a social media management platform that lets you manage all of your social profiles at a place and manage all your tasks once. This app has so many amazing features that help you save time and do things better than before. However, using SmarterQueue you can just schedule posts, not stories. Moreover, in order to post content on Instagram, you need to download and install the application on your mobile phone which is not beneficial. On the other hand, AiSchedul focuses only on Instagram and lets you manage multiple Instagram accounts at once, schedule both feed and stories and repost content.
Compare these two platforms and find out the one that meets your requirements best.
