It has happened! Instagram has FINALLY been integrated with Hootsuite. What a day in the history of Social Media?!
Two days ago Hootsuite announced that you were now able to add your Instagram account to its popular Social Media tool, which means that you can now officially schedule Instagram posts!
We introduced you to a tool a matter of days ago called Schedugr.am which effectively logs into your Instagram account and posts preplanned posts on your behalf, at predetermined times. This is the closest that we have come to scheduling Instagram posts. Until now! Read more about our blog post by clicking here.
So what are the key benefits?
- Schedule and publish Instagram content – Posting as you go is an essential part of Social Media, however being able to schedule your content via Hootsuite now enables you to keep a steady stream of posts in the Social stratosphere.
- Monitor and engage with Instagram audiences – With Hootsuite’s columned interface, engaging with your audience has just got a whole lot easier!
- Securely share access to Instagram accounts across teams – Before now, you could only allow access to your account by passing on sensitive account details. Now, as with all accounts on Hootsuite, you can allow team access. Therefore eliminating the need to give out your password!
- Create team workflows, including assignments and approvals for Instagram – Perfect for all you Social Media agencies (like us!).
