AppyHigh Co-founder, Venus Dhuria said, “With apps like InStore, influencers can post content faster with higher relevance, thus reducing the effort required in publishing posts and improving turnaround time, enabling them to automate their publishing efforts quicker. In addition to hashtag and caption generation, InStore’s other offerings such as image touch-up capabilities including photo grids, collages, and photo-resizing features, are also extremely popular among our users. There are almost 1 million users using Hashtag & caption generation, collages and photogrids on InStore. They are also actively bookmarking content that they like, potentially for future inspiration while creating their own.”
With easy access to smartphones with high-quality cameras, influencers/creators effortlessly create engaging content such as stories, memes, videos, reels, and photo essays. Creating engaging content is only the first step to ensuring that their content’s discoverability reach is maximized. Creators heavily rely on hashtags and they use various apps to generate cool hashtags depending on content themes or human emotions.
AppyHigh Co-founder, Aneesh Rayancha added, “Four years ago, no one would have imagined being an influencer as a full-time profession. Influencer marketing and social media content creation as a profession are on the rise as many brands are turning to influencers for content creation instead of production agencies. Influencers are also going one step ahead by monitoring, analyzing, and course-correcting their approach to deliver the best value to their audiences by using follower analytics tools on InStore. InStore now has almost 15 million monthly active users, which is almost 2x vs last year.”
