Now Available: Publish – Free Instagram Post Scheduling Tools

We are now accepting test accounts for Publish – our Instagram post scheduling tool.

Why Publish?

It’s well known that most small business without a dedicated (or outsourced) marketing team fall behind on their social media posting – keeping customers informed and engaged.

We believe Instagram is the most used and best lead generating social media platform available today – particularly with the 20-50 age target audience.

The lack of consistency is usually down to other tasks getting priority – making it difficult to produce high quality posts.

Publish enables you to schedule Instagram posts in one dedicated block of time, putting you in the right frame of mind.

Current features include:-

  • Post scheduler – with calendar view
  • Posting of images, videos and stories
  • Media file manager
  • Hashtag templates
  • Post statistics
  • Multiple Instagram account management

SNAPSEED:  Making Your Images Look Pro

SNAPSEED: Making Your Images Look Pro

Snapseed (by Google) can take your drab and lifeless images and turn them into something special, instantly – and for FREE.

These are not your average Instagram filters, these are a range of editing and refinement tools that are incredibly easy to apply to any image (even if you don’t really know what you’re doing…).

Simply download the Snapseed app (available in all App Stores), load up your image and apply an initial filter before adding some refinement settings until you’re happy with it – then export it straight to Instagram (or your photo library for use elsewhere).

Our favorite filter is the “Morning” filter – what it can do to grey, dull images is literally amazing.  You can also use this app on high res images straight from your full size camera – idea for poster printing, etc.

TIP:  The App automatically reduces the quality of saved images.  To change this to the highest possible quality, go into “Settings”, then change the quality setting from 95% to 100%.
