So far, I have given you The Ultimate Facebook Toolbox, as well as The Ultimate Twitter Toolbox. Now it is time to discuss some more awesome tools and resources that are available for free for yet another one of the top social networks, Instagram.
Over the past few years, Instagram has grown to become another social networking giant along with Facebook, and Twitter. Thanks to Instagram, quite a few businesses have began to flourish. In fact, many of the online businesses that have emerged over the past couple of years, rely solely on Instagram for the majority of their marketing strategies. Their are also quite a few influencers who have created lucrative careers using Instagram.
These facts should tell you that Instagram is another social network that you definitely do not want to ignore, especially if you plan to capitalize on the E-commerce Revolution that has been taking place since the early 90’s. If you have ever thought for a second that you don’t need your business to be active on Instagram, think again, because the following statistics say otherwise:
- There are 1 billion Instagram accounts active every month.
- More than 500 million Instagram accounts are active everyday.
- 80% of Instagram users follow a business account.
- 60% of users first heard about a product on Instagram.
- Instagram ad revenue is at $7 billion.
- Instagram has the highest engagement rate across ALL social media.
Now, back to the question of whether your business or brand should be active on Instagram. After reading the above stats, what do you think?
Free Instagram Tools
Your answer to the previous question should have been something like, well, of course I want to be active on Instagram. This platform just has too much influence for you not to be active on it. Even if you do not have a presence on Instagram, you better believe your customers do and, if your customers are on Instagram, then so are your competitors. So, in order to help you effectively compete on this platform, I’ve compiled a list of tools that should help you use Instagram more efficiently so that your brand will stand out. Let’s take a look.
This is an Instagram auto liker, auto follower, auto commentor tool which will help you get more likes and comments on your Instagram photos, and help you gain more followers.
This tool will generate all of the best hashtags for you to use for any given word or topic. All Hashtag also provides hashtag analytics, and gives you lists of all of the most popular hashtags.

The second tool enables you to scan your Instagram profile so that you can find and remove banned hashtags.
The third and final tool is one of my favorite Instagram tools that I have found. It’s basically a world map that allows you to zoom in to street level on any spot on the globe, and you will then be shown all of the hashtags that are coming out of the location that you have zoomed in on!
