DRAG + DROP TO CREATE THE PERFECT INSTAGRAM GRID
Once you’ve edited your Instagram photos and gathered your Instagram video content, you are ready to drag + drop your grid to perfection.
With Plann, you’ll soon be able to design your Instagram grid on a desktop by dragging + dropping content to quickly visualise what your account will look like once you’ve posted your content.
This will help you to make sure that your Instagram grid has ‘visual flow’ and encourages potential followers to hang around a little longer when they land on your profile.
If you have a visually stunning Instagram grid it is way more likely that someone new will want to scroll through your grid, like a few pictures and leave a few comments… to the point where they’ll probably end up following you too!
