  • Auto post to your Instagram Story (No business account required)

    Have you ever felt the urge to post something to your Instagram story on the weekend and felt bad about wasting your precious quality time planing your posts? Why not plan ahead your posts to free your weekends and to save your precious after-work hours?

    Other services only offer automatic posts for business accounts but there are many smaller businesses and influencers that are not able or don’t want to convert their accounts to business accounts. The not satisfying solution to those are notifications which need to be confirmed on the smartphone before the images can be posted. Which leads to another downside: With those services you cannot post videos at all to your story.

    But don’t despair: Storrito is there to the rescue!

This created ripples across the platform, a bit of frustration among users, and admittedly, confusion among brands who worked hard to build their audience base. Switch to 2018, and although the Instagram algorithm constantly changes and updates, there’s no arguing that audience engagement is still the name of the game.
