Instagram apps for online promotion


Available on both iOS and Android, Snapseed is one of the top photo-editing apps to make your images look more Instagram-friendly. From enhancing photos to applying filters, this app is super easy to use and is a perfect tool for beginners.


If you are looking for a tool that can help you achieve great Instagram stories and posts with exclusive designs, Canva is the platform for you. With their web platform and iPad app, they help you create Instagram content with pre-designed templates. We’ve been using them for Gadget Flow promotions and the designs are simply amazing.

This platform shows you all the trending hashtags as well as trending results based on varying factors so you can better put all 30 to use.


In addition to doing Instagram posts, you also need to keep up with your Instagram Stories. They add a fun element to your overall social media and that’s where you can use Boomerang. This app is already embedded in your Instagram app so you can use it without even adding extra to your existing apps. A Boomerang creates a visually pleasing GIF that loops forward and in reverse.


If you are more into promoting videos on Instagram, InShot is the app for you. From merging clips to trimming the video length to adjusting the speed of your video, this app can do it all. Videos are a great way to promote your campaign, but you have to take into consideration the format and design, including the correct length for social media which is approximately somewhere between 25-30 seconds.


Having discussed a few apps that help you create better posts, let’s now talk about an app that will help you track your traffic results accurately from Instagram. Although Instagram offers its own analytics feature for business profiles, Iconosquare will help you manage your profile with proper scheduling along with offering analytics.
