Yes! It is possible to create Instagram collaborative posts directly from Agorapulse in just a few easy steps.
What are collaborative posts for Instagram?
An Instagram Collaboration post is a unique post visible in the Feeds or Reels of two separate accounts, showcasing two users as its creators. Using collab posts comes with benefits such as:
Reaching a wider audience
Increasing your engagement and gaining more followers
How to create Instagram collaborative posts?
Open the composer, select an Instagram account and start creating your post. Under the Instagram options section, you will see the Invite collaborator(s) button.
When you click on this button, a new window will open, this is where you can invite up to 3 other Instagram accounts as collaborators for your post. Simply search for the accounts, click Add and then Save collaborators when you are finished.
After you have selected the collaborators you wish to invite, you do have the option to edit these or remove all of them.
When you are happy with your post and selected the accounts you wish to be collaborators, you can schedule the post or publish it as normal.
How do the collaborators accept my invitation?
Once the post has been published all the following steps happen on Instagram (not on Agorapulse). The invited collaborators are notified that they were added as collaborators on your post and have the option to either accept or reject the invitation:
If they accept, their name appears next to the name of the original creator of the post and the post appears on their Instagram profile/on their follower's feed
If they reject the invitation, their name doesn't appear next to the name of the original creator of the post but they appear as tagged on the image (so the post appears in the 'Tagged' tab of their Instagram profile)
We don't check the status of the invitations sent to collaborators. This means you can't rely on Agorapulse to know if the collaborators accepted or rejected the invitation. You will have to check this on Instagram directly.
Our previews only show the name of the original creator of the post (the one that invited collaborators).
Posts, where you have been added as a collaborator, are not synced on Agorapulse. Collab posts are only displayed on Agorapulse in the organization hosting the profile which is the original creator of the post. So if you're not the original creator of the post but one of its collaborators, even though you appear as a co-author on Instagram after you accepted the invitation, the post won't show on your Agorapulse organization.
