Using the Instagram Publisher in Kontentino
You know, scheduling a post to Instagram is always a bit tricky. Let's take a look at how to schedule them properly. Kontentino enables you to schedule all types of Instagram posts including Instagram video posts, carousels or stories. With the inbuilt Instagram Publisher, you'll become an expert in Insta scheduling in a jiffy.
You can schedule to Instagram via our mobile app or Creator Studio, thanks to our integration. Posts scheduled via Creator Studio will be published automatically.
Scheduling via Kontentino mobile app
Looking for Instagram Calendar? Kontentino Calendar fully integrates posts scheduled for Instagram. Follow the steps below to create new content for Instagram, which can be reviewed by your colleagues and client and scheduled for publishing.
It's just like creating any other post. In your Kontentino calendar, click on the date you want your post to be published. Upload a photo or a video from your computer or Kontentino album. You can schedule a photo, video, carousel or even a story. Write the post copy, choose the time and click on ‘Save’.
Now you see a live preview of your post.
When you, your colleagues or clients have already reviewed the post just click ‘Schedule’.
Once the post is scheduled you will see a note informing you that a push notification reminder will be sent to your phone 5 minutes before the scheduled time.
Now you can relax and wait until you receive a push notification to your smartphone. When you do, that's the moment when your Instagram post is about to be published.
Open the notification and tap PUBLISH NOW. Your post will be copied to the Instagram app. You select whether it's a story or a regular post. To insert the text copy, tap-hold the text field and paste it.
Now your Instagram post is ready for its time to shine :)
It's always a good idea to check to which Instagram account you're signed in on your phone, so you do not publish a photo of cat food to a fitness club's page.
Scheduling via Creator Studio
Create your Instagram post like you normally would, discuss it with your team and send it for approval. When you're ready to schedule, choose the option “Export to Creator Studio”.
Scheduling Instagram Stories
As we indicated, you can easily schedule IG stories with Kontentino Calendar. If you follow the 7 step process described above, select 'Story' from the tabs available under the Post Text. If you were wondering how to schedule instagram stories or whether you can do it at all, the answer is here.
