Last week we received great news from Instagram! Seven years after the launch of what has become one of our favorite social networks, Instagram has finally decided to make our lives easier by letting us schedule our posts in advance, in the same way that we have been doing in other networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
Although some tools included the scheduling function before, they were doing it in an “unauthorized” way, or at most, other tools were simply warning us with an alert, telling us it was time to post.
Now that the scheduling feature is official and many of our favorite tools have become official Instagram partners, I wanted to share with you a short list with some of these tools that you can use from now on to schedule your content and let the app do the rest.
Our favorite tool for scheduling on Pinterest also joins the Official Instagram Partners, allowing us now to schedule not only pins, but also our favorite photos. If you are already familiar with this tool, it works the same for Instagram. Schedule your content and publish it automatically. One of its features, in comparison to other tools, is that it will allow you to include hashtags in the posts. Remember, this is important to generate greater reach. Click here to try Tailwind!
We all know IconoSquare because it is the tool with the best analytics for Instagram, since before the application itself launched its own insights. With IconoSquare, now you can schedule your posts and forget about the rest, because they will automatically publish your content. This feature is included in all of their plans that start from only $9 per month.
The largest and most used social networking platform around the world, is finally celebrating its integration with Instagram, after several years of insisting by its followers.
“Scheduling and publishing of Instagram content has been the number one request for our 16 million customers… Now, they can manage large volumes of content, multiple team members, and multiple Instagram accounts with ease and security. Hootsuite is excited to launch our new integration with Instagram to help our customers achieve their business goals and succeed with social.”

Sprout’s Instagram integration includes scheduling, publishing, engagement tools and access to rich analytics. Easily plan and schedule posts, monitor hashtags and locations and respond to comments with a comprehensive social management solution. You can try it by signing up for their 30 day trial!
And although this tool is not yet officially authorized by Instagram, I cannot stop mentioning it, because it has saved me a lot of time by allowing me to schedule and publish content automatically. I’m talking about Onlypult! Whom in this post I want to encourage to join the list of tools authorized by Instagram.
