Instagram is the one social network we all use to nurture our followers and share thoughts, updates, services, and any experience – visually and beautifully. As social networks are getting more advanced with time, let’s mention shopping and analytical tools, Instagram proudly keeps a few unique superpowers. One of them is Instagram tags – a crucial element for brands.
With so many competitors on the market, Instagram is still considered a top choice for social media users.
As of April 2022, more than half of the global Instagram population worldwide is aged 34 years or younger. 59% of Instagram users log in daily, and the average engagement rate per post is 0.98%.
Everyone uses Instagram tagging to give credits or mention all people/other brands appearing on their photos.
This strategy can effortlessly boost user-generated content. Tagging others on Instagram helps get more reposts, improve views & engagement, and build credibility in the most effortless way possible!
Also, it helps link multiple Instagram profiles. Franchise brands, entrepreneurs, bloggers, and every small business owner who has 2+ Instagram profiles can benefit from this hack.
Publer now supports Instagram Tags!
We love supporting new features that can smoothly elevate your social media marketing efforts.
As you know, we want Publer to be the only tab you need when preparing new content. And we think we’re on the right path.
Publer helps you create, curate, schedule, and manage Instagram photos, videos, and carousels – within the tool. And now, other than all of those, Publer is supporting tagging!
So, in a few words, you can tag up to 20 other profiles on each of your Instagram photos (including carousel posts).
One thing that’s better than Instagram tagging? Automating it!
How to tag other profiles on Instagram using Publer:
Open the Editor
Select your Instagram account on the left.
Choose the image/s you want to create a new post with on the Media Library, import them from your desired source (Drive, DropBox, OneDrive, Unsplash, or local storage), or design new images from scratch with Canva/VistaCreate.
When you hover the cursor over an image, you’ll be able to see a small ‘tag’ icon at the bottom right corner of the image.
Click on the icon and manually pick where you want to tag a profile.
After deciding on a spot, you can add the username below.
NOTE: Due to Instagram’s limitations, Publer can’t autocomplete or spellcheck usernames. You need to double-check the spelling before saving. Or else, the post will be published without the invalid tags.
Do this for every image (even if you’re working on a carousel post) and click Save.
Preview the entire post before scheduling/posting, just to be sure you have the perfect post!
Consult our Help Center for a detailed guide to tagging correctly.
You can tag up to 20 Instagram profiles for each photo on carousel posts.
Videos aren’t supported for tagging other people.
You need a Business Instagram account to be able to use the tagging feature.
Tip: Don’t over-tag. Just because you want your posts to get more views and engagement, you shouldn’t tag inappropriate Instagram profiles to your posts. Instagram can easily flag you for spamming and that’s not something you’ve worked hard towards.
