We know your goal is to turn visitors into followers; therefore, we’ve finally built the Feed Preview feature within Publer.

You can now view their Instagram feed based on the shared content and the ones you want to schedule for the future. It’s important to take the time and think more about how your Instagram affects the visitor at first sight!

You are 5 minutes away from your favorite Instagram feed.

Your small business helps thousands find inspiration because everything you post represents your services and products and your mood.

Let everyone know that you are creative enough to transmit your business smartly. You want to stay consistent and take good care of the colors on your feed. This is why we highly recommend using only high-quality images/videos so your feed is always beautiful.

Here’s What You Do with the Instagram Feed Preview on Publer:

You can see the Feed Preview feature by clicking Calendar -> Select an Instagram account -> Choose Feed in the top right corner.

Filter, search and find the visual content that you want to schedule on your Instagram account using the media library on the left. If you want to add other content, simply import them from Drive, DropBox, or find some unique free stock images using the built-in Unsplash integration.

Select the visual content (no limit) that you want to use and click Auto-Schedule media at the bottom. Publer will automatically find the free available timeslots per each of the content you’ve selected and you can then see them all on the Instagram feed on the right.

It’s time to rearrange each photo/video by dragging and dropping based on your preferences.

You might need to add another post after you’ve fully rearranged the content. Then simply click ‘Schedule new post’ or hover the mouse over a photo/video where you’ll see a + icon. While clicking the + icon, not only will you be able to create a new post from scratch, but you don’t have to worry about setting the time and date! Publer will automatically find a medium slot between the two posts you clicked the icon at. Smart, right?
