Unlike most other platforms, Instagram does not allow third-party applications to actually post to Instagram — making it impossible to schedule content from outside Instagram.
To bypass this limitation, tools like Hootsuite & Later offer a feature that allows you to “schedule” a post and then, when it’s time to publish this post, to get a reminder to publish it manually.
Now, a similar process to post to Instagram is available in Buffer, with Buffer reminders:
Guess what: this means that you can now “schedule” Instagram posts from inside Loomly, and get your reminders in Buffer.
All you need to do is:
- Create a post in Loomly
- Select Instagram as a channel for this post
- Get it approved within your team
- Schedule it with Buffer
- Actually publish the post to Instagram when you get Buffer’s reminder to do so
Happy Instagraming 😉
