Hootsuite is one of the most popular social media management platforms, and integrates with all the major social networks. Like a couple others on this list, Hootsuite allows users to automate single-image posts and sends reminders for video and multi-image posts. One of our favourite features is its bulk scheduling tool; upload a pre-formatted CSV to schedule hundreds of social media posts at once, saving hours – even days – worth of work. Best of all, it’s more affordable than some of its competitors. A team of 3 users can manage up to 20 profiles for $129 per month. If you’re using Hootsuite to manage your Instagram account, it’s a great option – but many users report issues when posting to Facebook, so people looking for a multi-platform management tool may want to test that out before committing. Hootsuite is available as a web app and for iOS and Android.
Beyond making all of Hootsuite’s social media management functions available away from your desk, the Hootsuite mobile app has two really important features for Instagram marketers. First is the ability to regram with just a couple of taps. Sharing user-generated content is a great way to engage your followers and fans, but there’s no native regram function within the Instagram app.
Anchor Video Maker, available on iOS and Android, is great for making audio content much more engaging. Don’t let those audio files go to waste: awesome videos can also start life as soundbites. This app automatically transcribes your audio files or podcasts into Instagram friendly videos. Check out this article, for a demo, tutorial, and download links.
You can edit every individual video or photo and add text, change the layout, rotate, duration, trim, crop and split. All of these effects make a very professional looking video when done right. After adjusting every frame you can change the overall duration of the whole video, adjust when the music starts, add filters, change palette and turn outro off/on. How To Make Better YouTube Videos
