Most 3rd party apps, such as Cloud Campaign, don't have the ability to publish directly to Instagram. This is something we are hoping will change soon but in the meantime, there are ways to still publish directly that require just a bit more set-up time.

Luckily, our friends at Buffer have access to direct Instagram publishing and have a system in place that enables us to publish directly to Instagram through them.

This article will take you through how to link Instagram in Cloud Campaign and publish directly to Instagram without using push notifications

Option A) Direct Publishing

Create a free Buffer account

Link the desired Instagram account in Buffer

Link the same Instagram account to Cloud Campaign from your Brand Settings

Connect your Buffer account to your Cloud Campaign account using the Integrations tab in your Brand Settings

Schedule your Instagram posts through Cloud Campaign and they will automatically be posted to Instagram.

Option B) Email Notifications

Link your Instagram account and specify a 'Publisher Email'

Create and schedule content as you normally would

When it's time to publish a post to Instagram, you will receive an email with all of the details

Simply copy the text, download the image, and post directly via the Instagram app
