Have you ever posted an image to Instagram only to realize that it isnâ€™t quite right? Maybe the coloring is off or it ends up shifting your feed into feeling different than you were expecting. I often posted photos only to quickly delete them because I had trouble visualizing what the flow would look like.
For the last year or so, Iâ€™ve also struggled with posting as consistently. Iâ€™ll travel or take tons of great photos around the office but then I settle back into a lengthy to-do list and deadlines, quickly forgetting about all those images.
And, as people continually lean more towards quality over quantity on Instagram, I donâ€™t want to over-post and overwhelm my followers in a quest to get the content out there before it gets lost in the depths of my camera roll.
While I tend to post more off-the-cuff content on my personal account (@nubbytwiglet) in an attempt to keep it an authentic reflection of my life, my business account (@wearebranch) is much more polished and Iâ€™m often weighing different color stories and compositions before posting.
Like many of you, Iâ€™d heard of apps that could organize and pre-schedule my content but I never really found anything that meshed with my design style and quest for simplicity. That all changed last week when I discovered UNUM.
First off, UNUM has a really simple, minimal interface. You can pre-schedule images and captions but I tend to use it primarily as a content grid to visualize what I want my feed to look like.
Now, instead of waking up and digging through the thousands of images on my phone to figure out what to post, I already have a backlog 20 images with a nice mix of old favorites and new shots queued up and ready to go.
One other nice touch is that youâ€™re able to toggle between multiple accounts so if youâ€™re like me with business and personal profiles, you donâ€™t need to log in and out.
This app has already saved so much time and I hope it does the same for you, too.
