Top 5 tools to save you time on Instagram
When I started to work as social media marketing manager on my own I spent hours and hours looking in my phone and computer.
It got to the point that I wasn’t sleeping good because I was afraid I will miss some comment, or miss the window of top times to post.
My boyfriend is entrepreneur himself, so he watched me grabbing my phone and working too much silently.
Nowadays when I look back I’m so grateful for his patience to let me learn, to grow, to work in my business instead of on my business.
And because I know how that the most valuable resource we have that’s nonrenewable is time, I put together for you list of top 5 tools that will save you time on Instagram.
This way you can enjoy more being present with your love ones and watching your business grow faster.
Because when you are tired, over working, and frustrated with how much time it takes to stay on top of the game, you are not showing or giving your best.
Let’s dive in those 5 tools so you can sit back and enjoy your life again.

This way you’re not frustrated with what and when to post. And your feed will be matching your branding because you will see how it will all look ahead of time.
- Canva – https://www.canva.com/
Desktop and App
I think I’m using Canva daily. It is free tool where you can design your designs for Web or print: blog graphics, presentations, Facebook covers, flyers, posters, invitations, diplomas and much more.
There are many free templates, however you can just upload your own pictures too.
Definitely time and life saver when you are on a budget and don’t want to pay for graphic designer.
Super easy to use too.
- The Gridapp – http://www.thegridsapp.com/
On desktopThis is my new toy and newest app I just discovered.Grids allows you to use your Instagram on desktop. You can be watching Insta stories there and have multiple accounts if you pay only $8.99.
Otherwise it is free.
You can be searching on the Instagram, commenting on others posts and replying comments from your desktop.
The best part, besides to watch Insta stories from your desktop is that you can also be replying DM messages.
Which can be sometimes really time consuming if you do it with two fingers from your phone, right?
I hope that these 5 tools will save you time and maybe even relationship.
Because we want to build a business we love so we can live a life of freedom, right?
Not being slaves to our business and social media.
