Plan Instagram Posts, Stories and Reels for Business Accounts directly from SocialPilot

After Instagram released its API, SocialPilot enabled users to schedule and plan posts, stories, and reels for business accounts through direct publishing. You can create your content and schedule it for posting without any involvement of mobile reminders. 

For personal profiles, users can schedule posts and stories through mobile reminders.  

Now let's see how direct Instagram publishing of posts from business account works:

Connecting your Instagram Business and Creator Account

  1. Log into your SocialPilot account.
  2. Click on 'Accounts' > Connect Account > Instagram

  1. Select ‘Connect Business’ > Log in to your account

Your account is now connected to SocialPilot. 

Now let’s come to scheduling a Post:

  1. Go to ‘Create Post.’
  2. Switch to the Instagram tab on the composer.
  3. Select Post from the Post/ Story/ Reel toggle.

  1. Upload your content and compose your post where you can add up to 10 images or one video. You can upload the images or video from either the local device or from the cloud storage accounts of Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box. Customize your content by adding captions, hashtags, image tags, location tags, and first comment. Click here to understand how to create custom posts for Instagram.
  2. Select the Instagram accounts and then schedule the Post with one of the scheduling options given below the description field.

Now your post or reel will automatically be published on Instagram via direct publishing without any additional steps in between.

Scheduling a Post/ Reel/ Story from a Personal Profile on Instagram

The process of scheduling a post, Reel, or Story is the same for personal Instagram Profiles. However, all publishing is done through mobile reminders only. Instagram does not allow direct publishing on personal profiles to third-party tools.
