Instagram has tons of viral content for you to take advantage of on those slow content days. You came up short on your quota for posts or just not feeling creative, just posts somebody else’s stuff. Honestly, most viral media exists outside of any real ownership and as long as none of it is owned by Sony you should be ok. Grab something that’s trending well in your niche, post it and bathe in the easy like shares and comments. There’s a chance most of your followers have’nt seen it yet.
Regrann is an app for Android and Iphone(maybe? Nope) that allows you to download the content of any non-private Instagram page to re-post immediately or save for later. Both options come in clutch for riding the latest wave or stockpiling a warchest of stuff for later or just stealing memes. Grab it now, you won’t regret it.

FPTraffic is a useful tool for keeping your Facebook page up and active while you may be busy with other endeavors. You can scrape the internet for images to post to your page, schedule them and allow the program to do the rest. A well-curated feed in a targeted niche can do wonders, you’re running the page on autopilot pretty much. Be sure to hop in and post some content yourself and engage with your followers.
Pro-tip: Add captions to FPTraffic posts to help add context for your followers
