If you're looking to up your social media game, we've got some tools for you! What we've brought along this week is going to change everything...are you ready? I hope so...
Introducing Planoly. Planoly allows you to schedule when you post to Instagram. Say whaaaaaaat?! That's right! No more deciding in the moment what you're trying to say. Now, you can write everything beforehand while the clever ideas are fresh in your noggin, and fuhgeddaboudit.
(if you're using an iPhone, it'll open directly to the AppStore)
The other tool that will make sure your followers see everything you post, is WhenToPost (right). I know...I didn't think it was real either, but what WTP does will blow your mind! Not only does it use metric data to gather the number of followers you currently have, BUT it tells you when you should post to Instagram, because science. It uses Heat Mapping which is a thing that the internet uses to calculate other things to make everything work, you follow?
Let me repeat that for the people in the back: IT TELLS YOU WHEN TO POST TO GET MAXIMUM EXPOSURE!!
If you care about "ratings" for apps there's another one that's similar to WTP called "BestUploadTime"(left) which is the same thing, but has more ratings (if that's your jam). With BestUploadTime, you can also see who's stalking your profile.
Take some time to let this one sink in a little bit. Think about what you're doing on the daily that isn't contributing to your success as an artist. Are you submitting? Writing? Networking? All of these things can help your career flourish. It just takes one change.
Please keep in mind that this is a live document and is subject to change. When new resources become available, we will add them! Thanks, and see you next time.
