Our favorite Instagram Strategy and Scheduling app and I've literally tried them all. Instagram planning, scheduling, analytics and strategy suite that is visually focused, just like Instagram to ensure your absolute success on social media. Teamed with a beautifully simple drag and drop workspace, you’ll be able to create your own uniquely branded Instagram feed too.
Our Favorite Feature: Analytics! Plann lets you which posts are doing the best AND which hashtags get the most engagement and perform the best based on YOUR posts. It also tells you which time is the best for you to post AND what time your audience is online.
Plann is free but they also have paid versions that allow you to use Plann desktop. If you sign up through our link, you get a $10 credit with any paid subscription. I love the free version, but I opted for the paid version because I prefer to work my Instagram strategy on my Macbook.
One Pitch - it’s exactly that, one pitch to many journalist with one click! It's sort of like a PR wire, but you are matched to an outlet not only by topics, but also topics/stories that a particular journalist is looking for.
It’s simple. Upload and submit formatted pitches (quick and to the point) and select from the same writing interests as media professionals.
Journalists receive a daily email with all the approved pitches that match with the topics and industries they have pre-selected.
Publicists wait for the technology to match their submission with the most ideal media contact, and journalists reach out to them directly via email to pursue a story.
