  1. Which do you find the best tool to use, Andy? I am a very poor user of Instagram because I rarely look through other people’s ‘grams’. I post because I like to get certain images online via Instagram but I don’t promote myself or share and comment very much. And the bottom line reason for that is that I don’t see the attraction or the benefit. Pinterest is not the same beast, but with Rich Pins I have something that is giving value back to my own site. What’s your take on that?

  2. I haven’t got into Instagram at all but being Generation Jones I’m going to have to try the tools you suggest, especially InstaQuote as I’m a real fan of Picture Quotes.

    Pinterest is a different matter. I’m very much into that but don’t visit often because I can spend far too much time in there.

  3. Andy,

    Great post. Thank you for sharing these valuable apps. I have downloaded Instagram on my Gallaxy S4 phone but I have not yet attempted to use it. I agree with Sue Bride about Pinterest. I have created many boards and as David Bennett said many of the pins are providing value back to my own sites. I look forward to watching your training – in a few days (the next 4 days are tied up in a continuing education course)/

  4. I have an account on Instagram and I posted a couple of pics, but I don’t like that it’s phone-based only. I suppose I didn’t really give it enough of a chance and I might try again (although I focus on other social networks). These tools sound great for when I try again :).

  5. Hi Andy,
    Thank you so much for these tips on how to help on Instagram. I’m still learning how to follow and/or find people. I have Instagram on my laptop, my tablet and my iPhone but still not sure of what I’m doing.

    I will keep at it though and check these apps out.
