Instagram is the one social media platform that seems to frustrate everyone. It’s a little like being on the big dipper rollercoaster. There’s ups and there’s downs but the downs are always prolonged. Feelings aside, Instagram is a powerful platform so in this post, I’m sharing the 5 best Instagram apps every blogger needs.
One of the biggest challenges bloggers face when uploading videos to Instagram Stories, is editing them to 15 second segments. Not anymore because thanks to CutStory, gone are the days of manual editing. All you need to do is open the app, select video from the camera roll, press save and select Instagram (15s). Ingenious!
It would be criminal to mention Instagram Stories without mentioning Hype Type. This app is a bundle of fun that allows you to hype your stories by adding funky animations and motion typography. Talk about cool!
One of the best ways to make money as a blogger, is through sponsored social media posts. A stumbling block that a lot of bloggers encounter, is not having ‘enough’ Instagram followers. One platform that does things differently is TRIBE. Connecting brands with micro-influencers, your content does the talking, not your follower count. The best part is, you set your own fee! With dozens of campaigns added daily and no restriction on numbers, TRIBE is a great way to earn an extra bit of income.
Preview is one of the best Instagram apps on the market for planning out your feed. With everything you need in one app, you can rearrange your photos, drag and drop, schedule in advance and even use the Instagram hashtag finder to find out which hashtags work best. In addition, there are over 15 filter packs and 70 presets to really help your photos stand out.
My iPhone contains nearly every photo editing app under the sun. But the one app I return to time and time again is Color Story. This app works wonders in helping you edit your Instagram photos like a pro whilst allowing you to add very colourful filters to your photos. If you’re a fan of including bright colours into your Instagram feed, then Color Story is an absolute must.
