The missing piece of the puzzle is now available and ready for use! πŸ™Œ

On January 26th, 2021, Instagram published its Content Publishing API. After careful review and evaluation, Instagram has officially accepted our request to direct connection and posting.

Say Hello to Instagram on Publer!

As we all know, many brands are currently using Instagram to showcase their latest updates and interact with the audience through their media.

Instagram has always been a straight-forward social network where people get immediate messages and connect emotionally to posts. This is what makes everyone take good care of what they post to their feed. Marketers love spending too much time to create or suggest powerful visual contents, which always translate into feedbacks.

Top reasons why a brand should be part of Instagram:

  • Visual content is a key to attracting followers. Instagram has reached a huge audience because of its special look and easy interaction with the users. Everyone can connect freely, decide their privacy, and what to see on their feed.
  • Reach a large number of people faster than you think. It usually takes a location tagging or a hashtag to be part of a feed where even other people share their media. Relevant usage of hashtags helps you reach a targeted audience and potential clients.
  • Real-time feedback. All your new updates and services require feedback, whether people find them useful or give opinions to improve. When the audience talks about your brand, you should take notes!
  • Interact with the audience. It is very important to engage with your followers every day because as they know your team better, they turn into loyal and empowering clients. You better answer to all your DMs!

Analyze the engagement on each of your Instagram posts. Check how many people your posts reached and their interaction. Make new marketing plans out of the insights you get in real-time.

Save groups of #hashtags as shortcodes

Too lazy to write many hashtags every time you create a new post? Every user can create and save a group of hashtags as shortcodes, so they can easily add them on their Instagram posts by writing two curly brackets and choose the option they want.

Once you’ve created all your shortcodes, you can access them by typing “{{“.

Shortocodes work with first / follow-up comments too, so it’s a win-win πŸ˜‰
