Is it possible to share Instagram Reels from SocialPilot?
After Meta released its reels API for external users, SocialPilot has now enabled its users to post reels straight from the tool to Instagram. You can schedule your reels from the tool’s integrated dashboard and directly publish them on the platform on your business profiles.
This capability of the tool will provide the users with a smoother workflow for scheduling posts and reels. Publishing without the help of any mobile reminders or push notifications is an added pro. Hence managing a variety of content for multiple Instagram accounts can be done from a single space.
Here are the things you need to take care of before you go to schedule your reels:
- The length of the reel should be between 5 to 90 seconds.
- The aspect ratio of 9:16 should be maintained.
- Up to 30 hashtags can be added to the reel.
If any of these conditions are not satisfied, an error message will appear in the scheduler window accordingly. You will not be able to schedule the reel until all the parameters are met.
How to publish reels from SocialPilot?
Now let's see the steps to follow for scheduling Instagram reels from the SocialPilot scheduler:
Sign into your SocialPilot account.
