With over 500 million monthly active users, it's no secret that Instagram is a powerful tool for building your personal brand or the brand of your dealership. 

At its core, Instagram is much more than a place for you to blast out irrelevant images about how awesome you think you are or what vehicle you just sold. It's a place to get creative, and share value in a very visual way.

And to be visual, you're going to need some handy apps in your toolbox. That's why we've assembled five of our favorite apps to help you pump out excellent, creative photos for your Instagram profile.

1.) Over

Over app

Over allows you to create stunning typographic images with just a few simple steps. With full integrations to Unsplash' photo directory, you can leverage a vast library of pre-edited images that will look good no matter what.

I use this app every single day because it's easy, fast, and looks good!

iOS: http://apple.co/2bmwrE3
Android: http://bit.ly/2bahRPK

2.) Wordswag

Wordswag app

Wordswag is similar to Over, but with a different spin. While crisp typography is at the core, it also has pre-designed typographic templates for you to choose from.

iOS: http://apple.co/2bmuZBN
Android: http://bit.ly/2aPjMuQ

3.) Enlight

Enlight app

For those of you that like to have a little more control over your photo filters, Enlight is a powerful image editor at your fingertips. Not only can you adjust filters, but there is also a broad range of other photo editing features such as red-eye reduction and masking, to name a few.

iOS: http://apple.co/2b2ypdT

4.) Snapseed

Snapseed app

Snapseed is arguably one of the best (free) photo editing apps for iOS (sorry Android). Developed by Google, Snapseed provides more in-app editing tools than Instagram, making it a viable option for those not willing to spend money on an app.

iOS: http://apple.co/2bmvWKm
Android: http://bit.ly/2bbSb9e

5.) Layout

Layout app by Instagram

Layout by Instagram allows you to create photo collages with a variety of pre-design templates. Just select the design template you'd like to use and drop in your images. 

iOS: http://apple.co/2bbSi4M
Android: http://bit.ly/2aFFlQ8

If you're a visual person but haven't given Instagram a try yet, this just might be the social network for you. It's where I'm most active because I enjoy the creativity of it. It's also where I happen to be building an audience the fastest (but we'll get into that more in a future post :)
