What is is a tool designed to help you schedule & manage your Instagram Posts.

What makes it different from other schedulers? has been around for a long time and has gained the trust of many social media savvy folks. It has amazing collaboration features which work great for teams and seem to be stronger than many others I’ve reviewed.

Why do we love it?  I absolutely love that you can upload posts from your Computer, iPhone, Tablet, or Android so that you can manage your account wherever you normally work. The ability to add team members is also key and I truly love the clean layout and design.

The Cost:  The free plan comes with 30 photo posts/mo, search & repost, and 2 Instagram profiles. For more than 30 images per cycle, plans begin at $19/month.

What is Planogram?  Planogram is a Visual Planner and Scheduling Tool for stylists, bloggers, photographers, and publishers on Instagram.

What makes it different from other schedulers?  The visual display of the grid allows you to see what your feed is going to look like with a click and drag approach to rearranging potential images. You can play around with the future look of your feed and it gives you a better avenue for ensuring that your images flow in a way that is representative of your brand.

Why do we love it?  Do you always second guess whether an image is going to “fit” within your feed or do you post images only to delete them later? I’m guilty of doing this and has helped to eliminate that problem. It’s perfect for the aesthetically obsessed and incredibly particular content curators who have a little bit of a perfectionist complex.

The Cost:  Basic plans for one account begin at $6 per month and there is a 14-day free trial if you’re looking to test it out first!

Schedugram for Instagram Scheduling

Meet Schedugram

What is Schedugram?  Schedugram is an Instagram Calendar + Scheduling Tool that posts for you.

What makes it different from other schedulers?  It posts for you. That is HUGE. All of the other scheduling apps that I’ve researched require the user to swipe right to post, which poses a significant issue for creatives who want their images to go live when they are unable to physically be by their phone. The design isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing, but the functionality makes up for that. 

Why do we love it?  Not only does the app post for you… but it also allows you to schedule your first comment for strategic hashtag placement. This feature alone is huge for strategy and sets Schedugram apart from its competitors. It also allows you to manage multiple Instagram accounts with ease.

The Cost:  There is a 7 day free trial to get you hooked and then the cost varies based on the number of followers that you have. For accounts with 0 to 10,000 followers you can expect to pay $20 monthly.

  1. Oh this is so so good Natalie! Thank you so much for telling us about these other options! I wish there was one that had the feed drag and drop feature + the post and first comment!

  7. Great write up we’ve been using Planoly for a while now and it works great. I think it’s the best option for single account use but social media companies might find it a bit pricey for use with multiple accounts

  8. Hi, Natalie,nice post on Instagram scheduling apps.I would like to suggest SocialPilot ( allows you to schedule your post on multiple Instagram accounts in advance.

  9. Hi Natalie! I have a wedding agency and every day I use instagram like a marketing platform. I want to recommend a way to schedule posts on instagram use 4 months and all is well

    1. Adel! You were right! I ‘ve tried push photo and I am still happy to be its user. I was looking for a long time for the posting instagram service. I tried a lot, free and not free services. Unfortunately every time I saw some disadvantages. But is what was relly looking for! And I can recommend it to everyone who is selling ther goods with instagram!

  10. I just downloaded planogram, I’m so excited to test it out! thanks for the rec!! xx

  11. Nice!

  12. I’m curious if you have used at all? Note that it’s different from planOgram. Its interface looks good but I’m not sure how much more it offers beyond Latergram or Preview (the app). I may try it out.

  13. I’ve heard about I get how it could be a good app for instagram, but for visual merchandising and retailers who need more traditional planogram features, I’ve also been told about the company Retail Smart? Has anybody used this software?
