Tailwind’s desktop Instagram planner allows you to easily upload your photos and videos to your drafts from your computer. You can upload one photo or several at once. Don’t worry, we can handle it! 😉
To upload your Instagram content to Drafts, simply click Upload Photo/ Video.
Even when you’re filling our desktop Instagram feed planner with your own unique content, you still might find yourself without the perfect picture for a post.
That’s where our handy Unsplash stock photo integration comes in! You can search and schedule as many free stock photos as you need to your feed. Simply:
Worried that your full-size picture might get cut off when posted to Instagram? Don’t be! Our online Instagram grid planner allows you to not only upload but easily edit photos within the tool on desktop.
Here’s how to use our cropping tool to ensure your post has the proper image dimensions for your feed:
Our tool also gives you the ability to write the best Instagram caption possible. Here’s how it works:
Trying to find the best hashtags to give your posts the attention they need? Our desktop Instagram feed planner offers a built-in Hashtag Finder tool that generates the best hashtags specifically tailored to your post.
After you’ve selected the best Instagram hashtags for your post on our desktop Instagram planner, why not save it for similar posts in the future?
Now you can with our Hashtag Lists tool! Here’s how:
Adding a location to your post helps expand your reach and get more eyes on your post. Our desktop Instagram grid planner makes it easy to do!
To tag a location on your latest post draft:
Just like location tagging, when you tag brands, friends and influencers you widen your reach on Instagram. User tagging is built into our Instagram feed planner for desktop. Here’s what you do:
Tailwind Smart.bio integration allows you to schedule a link with your post. When your post goes live, the post image will appear on your Smart.bio landing page in real time!
To schedule a post link to your link in bio landing page, simply enter a Link label in the text box below your caption. Then, add the link you want to direct your followers to right next to it!
You also have the option to add a custom CTA to your caption, like “tap my link in bio for more info!”
Want to get even more eyes on your post? Our Instagram scheduler desktop tool will help you cross-promote your Instagram content to Pinterest (and Facebook!) by checking a box!
Check Amplify with Pinterest to get started. A pop-up box will then prompt you to select the board you’d like to send your post to.
You can even set that as default board if you plan to promote your IG content on the board frequently!
Hoping to catch as much engagement as possible on your new post? We have a tool for that! Our Smart Schedule feature suggests the best times to post when your followers are online and engaged.
When you’re editing your post, you’ll see the Smart Schedule recommendations at the bottom of your screen. Choose the available time slot you like the best, or create your own custom time!
Consistency is key on Instagram, whether you’re committing to posting once per day or three times a week!
Our Instagram planner desktop tool allows you to have complete control over your posting schedule based on your preferences – and the best times to post for your account!
To manage your weekly posting schedule:
Although Instagram doesn’t allow our Instagram feed planner desktop app to Auto Post to Instagram Stories (or any other app for that matter!), you can still use Tailwind to schedule Instagram Stories. Here’s how:
When the scheduled time rolls around, Tailwind will send a push notification to your phone. With just a tap, you can open your image in the Instagram app and send it right to your Stories!
Now that your post is all ready to go, you’ll want to doublecheck that it looks great in your feed!
Take a peek at your grid using the 9-Grid Preview function on Tailwind’s Instagram grid planner online. Your drafted posts will appear slightly opaque, while your scheduled and published posts appear in full color.
Don’t like the arrangement? Simply drag and drop your posts until you’re satisfied. Your scheduled post times will remain the same – just the post content will shift!
As you can see, it’s incredibly easy to plan and schedule your Instagram feed via Tailwind’s desktop Instagram planner.
Our comprehensive tool covers all the important details you need to expand your reach, grow your following and make a feed your followers will love!
