My Review of Later, the Instagram Scheduler

  1. Anna says:

    I’ve recently been using the free version of Later. At first I loved it but I realized recently that the thumbnails I see on Instagram are very degraded compared to the thumbnails I see if I upload the same jpg directly to Instagram without using Later. I’m using the best quality jpgs that Later allows (the jpg must be less than 5 mb). The result is that if someone looks at my profile page they see blurry thumbnails for posts that Later automatically posted. Have you found that? (And if so, have you found a fix?)

    Thanks for replying! The mystery continues. I’m going to run some test posts based on that article. I’ve got an email into Later as well. Thanks again for answering!

    I have the business plan, I think. Whatever the $90 one is. I am contemplating upgrading to get hashtag suggestions. Do you have any experience with this feature?

      I haven’t used their hashtag suggestion feature – typically I do my own research and then revisit it every 3-4 months or so. Generally, my hashtags are a combination of a few branded hashtags (vbcreative, vbclient), a couple of location-specific ones (vancouverwebdesigner, surreywebdesign), a few related to the service I provide (web design, web designer, branding, etc.) and then the remainder are ones that I notice my target audience is either using or might use when trying to search for me. If you do decide to give it a try, I’d be curious to hear what you think of the feature!

  4. Thank you for this blog, Vanessa. You’ve persuaded me to start with the free version. Gratefully appreciated. Hope all is well – this is great and super useful content. Thank you.
