Schedule posts to Instagram with SmartSocial

Categories // Network News, SmartSocial™

Since Instagram has not released an API that allows third party applications such as SmartSocial to schedule updates (and don’t plan to), it’s proving very difficult for business to take advantage of this extremely engaging social network as each Instagram update is a manual, time-consuming process. The services that do claim to offer this functionality employ a team of staff to manually post to your Instagram accounts at the scheduled time on your behalf, meaning that you have to share your Instagram login details with complete strangers who have the ability to get your Instagram account permanently shut down or worse – severely damage your brand’s reputation.

Categories // Network News

salesDiscounts sounds like a naughty word to many business owners, presidents and CEOs, but the truth is they are just another marketing tool to help sell more products or services. When done correctly, discounts do not detract from the true value of a product, but rather draw attention from an audience that may otherwise not look twice at your service or product.

With the internet almost always within hands reach of consumers, many decide on a product they want to purchase and then immediately head to the internet to find out where they can get the best deal for this product. Keep in mind, the "best deal" does not always mean the cheapest price.

How do you provide a discount that keeps the value of your service or product, but also brings more revenue in the door?
