If you’re looking to market and advertise your business then add Instagram to your social media agenda. Visuals are the way of the future and with Instagram you can share photos, video, stories, and even keep in touch with customers via direct messaging. It’s been proven time and time again that visual posts engage better with audiences, especially if you are in the B2C market.
But here comes the tricky part, scheduling your Instagram posts. There are several social media scheduling platforms available online, paid and free versions. But the downfall is the majority of them cannot auto-post to Instagram. Typically, you will find a statement that reads “we will send you a push notification when it’s time to post.” Instagram seems to be the only account that these top name social media scheduling companies cannot auto-post to including SproutSocial, CoSchedule, Hootsuite, Buffer, and Hubspot. However, as of 2018 Hootsuite now offers direct publishing to Instagram. While this is a step in the right direction, there are still limitations. Specifically, being that you can only post single images. This excludes Gallery posts and Stories which ARE available using a neat little tool we discovered a few years back called OnlyPult.
What do they do? Well, OnlyPult offers “scheduled posting to instagram with automatic posts publication”. The one task we couldn’t achieve with the other guys. We’ve been using their services for 3+ years now and are very pleased. They offer so many features, it will make you think you’re using Instagram itself, but better. It’s that good! Let’s take a look at some of their awesome features.

With affordable pricing and more features than we can count, OnlyPult is winning the game on auto-posting to Instagram. In fact, I can’t even think of a feature I would like to see them add, because they’ve got so many already. Gone are the days of “push notifications” for scheduling to Instagram. With OnlyPult, automatic posting gives you back time and makes it easier to market, plan, and manage Instagram like a pro. Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think!
