Managing social media, especially for multiple clients, can seem overwhelming at times. With so many profiles to compete with, you want to find the perfect aesthetic that works for your brand, especially when there are always new and inventive ways to market yourself to your audience. Take Instagram for example. Finding the best flow, coloring, and visuals to perfectly represent who you are and what you do can take hours out of your day. But thanks to Planoly, it doesn’t have to! Check out some of our favorite features of the first visual Instagram planner!
Planoly was created by a jewelry maker named Brandy. Following the birth of her first son, Brandy’s business’ success relied heavily on e-commerce to promote her brand. It was during this time that her husband noticed the correlation between Brandy’s Instagram posts and her sales, mainly that when she didn’t post, no one was buying. Without a better way to plan her posts visually, Brandy’s process was consuming so much of the new mom’s time! She would take photos during her baby’s nap time, edit them, create a visual feed in Photoshop, type her captions in Evernote, and then set alarms on her phone to remind her when to post. Sounds like a bit much, right?
Brandy thought so, too. That’s how Planoly was born! With a focus on design and editing, Planoly is the very first visual planner for Instagram. Not only can you see your planned feed, you can add captions, crop, and schedule your content all from the web or the Planoly mobile app!
What if you’re looking for more? Don’t worry — Planoly has you covered! Not only can you create gorgeous drafts of your Instagram feed from the platform, you can also take control of sourcing unique, relative content. Planoly offers users the ability to search Instagram directly through the site. Simply click on the “discover” button, then enter specific usernames, hashtags, and even search for free stock photos, all without ever leaving the site.
You even have the options of adding tags, automatically posting to Facebook as well as Instagram, adding a location, and adding your post’s first comment. For those who are looking to comment hashtags rather than add them directly within the post, this is an amazing feature that we absolutely love. We’re also fans of the fact that you can save hashtag “notes” in your account. For example, let’s say you’re posting about SEO but don’t want to have to retype the same hashtags every single time. Now you don’t have to! Simply save them once in Planoly and boom! Apply them with the click of a button whenever you want!
When it’s time to check your metrics, Planoly has you covered! Search by date, week, month, or even year to see everything from your followers, comments received, likes received, and the top posts you’ve created. And it’s not just the numbers, either. You get a great visual look at where your comments are, which posts are successful, and which ones need a bit more love.
Whether you’re just getting started or you’re an Instagram expert, we love the features and freedom that Planoly offers. At Moose May, we’re here to make your marketing dreams a reality.
