The challenges of manually posting Instagram Stories 

Manual posting on Instagram Stories can feel overwhelming, especially when you’re juggling a million things as a busy business owner or social media manager. 

It’s time-consuming, and let’s face it, forgetting to post can happen to the best of us. Plus, trying to stay creative day after day can be a real challenge when you have other important tasks demanding your attention. 

We understand how frustrating it can be when you’re trying to engage your audience and reach your goals, but the manual posting process keeps getting in the way. 



Unlocking the Power of Auto Posting and Instagram Stories


Plann’s Instagram Stories Auto Posting feature is a game-changer that ensures you never miss a beat on Instagram Stories again. By automating the process, you can curate a visually stunning grid, interact with your audience in real-time, and effortlessly keep your brand top of mind. 

Say goodbye to inconsistent schedules and hello to a streamlined, efficient way of sharing your Stories.

Why Auto Posting and Instagram Stories are a match made in heaven

Gone are the days of posting on the fly and rushing to capture the perfect moment. Auto posting eliminates the need for last-minute content creation, allowing you to plan and schedule your Stories in advance.

With auto posting Instagram Stories, you can tap into a stack of powerful benefits including:

• Maintain an active Instagram presence: by batch-creating your Stories and scheduling them ahead of time, you can ensure your brand is visible to your followers at all times on Instagram.

• Give your audience a chance to engage with your brand: Stories are an interactive content format that gives your audience the chance to react and even DM your brand. Make sure to add a call-to-action to your Stories slides to boost your engagement rate!

• Deliver high-quality content consistently: the best content is always created in advance, leveraging your brand fonts, colors and logos. By prepping and scheduling your Stories slides ahead of time, you can ensure every post and slide you share is polished and professional.

• Streamline your path to Instagram success: With less time spent uploading and manually posting on Stories, you can spend more time engaging your audience, building a thriving online community and even strategically promoting your products and services.
