How auto posting on Instagram helps real brands

APOTHEKE Social Media Manager Jess Hong’s Headshot

Later’s Instagram Reels analytics tools have helped us tremendously with being more data-driven in our content strategy. The Reels auto publish is also a must- now we can spend less time manually posting, and more time creating great content!

  • Auto Publish means that the posts you’ve scheduled in Later Social will publish to Instagram without any more work on your side. For example, if you have a single photo post (complete with caption, first comment, location tag, etc.) set to Auto Publish at 3:00 PM on Saturday, that post will go live at 3:00 Saturday. Some might say you can “set it and forget it.” 😏

  • Yes! With Later’s Instagram Reels Scheduler, you can visually plan & schedule Reels to auto post whenever you want.

  • Yes! Carousel posts (aka multi-photo posts, aka photo dumps) with multiple photos and/or videos can be Auto Published and scheduled using the Later Social Instagram Scheduler.

  • At the moment, Instagram Stories scheduled in Later must be published through Notification Publishing.

    That means: you can still plan and edit your Instagram Stories in Later (which is sometimes easier than using your phone), schedule them, and get a reminder sent to your phone when it’s time to post.

    FYI: this is a restriction from the official Instagram API. As an official Instagram partner, those are the rules we adhere to. Any solutions who offer automatic publishing for stories may be less-than-legit. 😬

  • Yes! With Later for TikTok you can schedule your TikTok posts in advance to publish at a set date and time. Compose your post, add hashtags, mention other users, and decide whether to allow comments, duets, or stitches. Later validates your media for you, so you know your post will publish without any hiccups.
