The 3 social media scheduling tools, you need to start using

This is not a secret! To grow your Instagram or Pinterest account, you need to be active on the platform, meaning you need to start using those 3 social media scheduling tools.

Scheduling your posts and pins, ahead of time will let you the opportunity to focus on engaging with your followers and create more content.

I used to use NOTE on my iPhone, to write a quick caption on a picture I wanted to share on Instagram.

I always shared the post I just have written because I didn’t know any better.

Now, every time I take a good picture to post on Instagram, I edit it, transfer it to my scheduling tool, write a caption, and look for the relevant hashtags to finally schedule the post for the following week!

Same with Pinterest! I used to do EVERYTHING manually!!

Nowadays, my Pinterest scheduler does everything for me and this is LIFE CHANGING.

Here are the 3 social media scheduling tools, you need to start using.


Let’s start with my favorite scheduling tool: Tailwind!

You need to know that I am a newbie with this social media scheduler, but I love it.

I don’t know about you, but I heard so many good things about this scheduling tool that I needed to try.

BIG PROS: Tailwind is an official Pinterest & Instagram Partner, so you can rest easy knowing your account is safe.

BIG CONS: I only use Tailwind for Pinterest! Why? Because for ONE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM, Tailwind is charging you $14.99/month. If I want to add Instagram, I will have to pay an extra $14.99/month.

I went on their website, and start the one-month free trial.

I found myself a little bit lost at first, but Tailwind walks through everything you need to know with quick videos.

I learned I could pin 25 pins a day in 10 minutes. As well as scheduling the same pin multiple times, with interval days and optimized time, to different boards that will increase traffic to my website!

I also learned a lot about Tailwind Tribes, smart loop, and Pinterest analytics.

After using Tailwind for a month, I have seen a big increase in my Pinterest followers as well as my website traffic.

This is when I decided to go for it!

When my free trial ended, I SIGNED UP FOR TAILWIND PLUS!

Side note: Tailwind does have an App for your phone, but this is nothing compared to the desktop version.

I have been using Later for a while, and this is by far my favorite Instagram Scheduler!

Like Tailwind, Later is an Instagram and Pinterest partner, so once again your account is safe.

BIG PROS: Later has a FREE FOREVER PLAN, meaning you can use the App for free for one profile, and publish 30 posts per social media platform, per month (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.) However, with the free version, you can’t schedule videos!

BIG CONS: Even if you can schedule posts for multiple platforms, I’ve seen myself only using Later for Instagram. I tried to use Later with Pinterest, but it wasn’t as efficient and fast as Tailwind.

Things I love about Later:

  • I paid only $9 per month (Definitely affordable)
  • There is a preview option, drag and drop to make sure your feed is looking good
  • You can schedule your posts on your desktop and on your phone (The App is nice)
  • Write caption with blank break and, find the relevant hashtags for your photos is extremely EASY
  • Auto publish, (YOU DO NOT DO ANYTHING), your account needs to be a business account

It won’t auto-publish with a personal or creator account.

The preview app is the first scheduling tool, I downloaded on my iPhone.

At first, I wasn’t using the app to schedule posts. I was using it, to see if the pictures I wanted to post were about to “Look good” beside each other. I wanted my feed to be aesthetically pleasing!

What I would do is edit every single picture and video I wanted to post on Instagram and then, drag them to see what would look the best.

Then, I started to use the Preview App to write notes on each post.

I ended up using it to schedule every single one of my posts on Instagram.

BIG PROS: The preview app is 100% FREE! You can schedule ahead of time, as many pictures, carousels, and videos as you want. Write your caption, find your hashtags, schedule a date and a time, and DONE.

BIG CONS: NO AUTO PUBLISH. The Preview App will only remind you via a notification that it’s time for you to post!

There is no free desktop version! If you love scheduling on your computer, you won’t be able to do it without Preview Premium.

Overall, Preview is a great app to have on your phone.

It will help you make sure you get the perfect Instagram feed, and it’s free!

My scheduling tools have no more secrets for you!

I use those social media schedulers every day, and I am so thankful for them.

It saves me A LOT OF TIME! (To write about them)

Until next time,

Xoxo, Justine.
