Instagram is a force to be reckoned with and social media marketers do realise how important it is to leverage it and build a community there, too. However, I know that a lot among them would be very honest and admit that Instagram still has a lot of things to improve.
Despite recent updates that are on the right track, we are still unable re-share a photo (like a retweet on Twitter), we can’t switch accounts easily, links don’t work and the desktop version is still very primitive. The list could go on and on.
If you are serious about Instagram, I’m sure you wish you had a sort of Tweetdeck/Hootsuite kind of platform where you could tailor your columns. The good news is that, Ink361 grants your wish!
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
It’s a complete monitoring tool allowing you to manage your community at the click of a button. Once you’re logged in, you will see a number of tabs at the top. The “Deck” one is where you will organise your columns and the “Feed” is basically the photos that people you follow shared. They show up big and you can Like and comment as you please. You can even use Emojis!
On top of that, Ink361 also gives you insights on your statistics with a whole section that will be much appreciated by us, social media managers. On there, you will come across a myriad of facts: “Love rate”, “Talk rate”, Time Distribution, Likes Received, etc.
What’s more? You can organise your photos into albums, similarly to what you would do with a Pinterest board. Very straightforward and super handy!
All in all, Ink361 is probably the most accomplished tool for browsing Instagram and I bet a lot of social media marketers will become big fans of it. On a personal note, if I had to describe Ink361 in one sentence, it would be: “that’s what a proper desktop version of Instagram should be like.”
Have a look for yourself and leave us your feedback!
