For this reason, Nelio Content offers the ability to publish Instagram posts with the help of Buffer. The setup is different compared to other social profiles, so please take the time to go through all the steps to make sure the account is connected successfully.
Create a Buffer Free Account
Notice that for Nelio Content to work the Buffer free account is enough. However, notice that currently, Buffer makes no mention of a free account in their pricing info (they used to do it, but recently changed) or elsewhere on the site. Now, it is necessary to sign up for a pro account, wait for the free trial to end, and then have your Buffer account downgraded to a free one.
Forget about the limitation of posting ten times per month because that’s for scheduling messages in their queue. By using Nelio Content, you will be able to publish messages at the moment, without scheduling in the Buffer queue, so that such limitation does not apply.
Connect Instagram Social Accounts
Once you’ve created your Buffer account, click on Connect Social Accounts and select the Instagram social account you want to connect.
In case you were not logged into Facebook, a new pop-up will request to do so. Connecting Instagram social accounts in Buffer is very easy, but if you need more details you can read Buffer instructions on how to add Instagram.
If you connect an Instagram Personal account, from Nelio Content you can schedule publication reminders for Instagram that you’ll receive on your mobile so that you can easily publish your pictures there.
If you connect an Instagram Business account, the messages will be published automatically (without you having to copy/paste them after Buffer notifies you). You’ll find detailed instructions in Set Up a Business Account on Instagram
How to Add an Instagram Profile to Nelio Content
Then, go to Nelio Content – Settings page and select the Instagram icon.
In case you aren’t logged in on Buffer, a new popup window will ask you to sign in.
Once signed in, a new popup on your browser will ask you to authorize Nelio Content to publish on your Buffer account.
Once Nelio Content has access to your Buffer account, a new popup will open on your browser. There, select the Instagram Profile to which you want to connect.
After clicking on Connect you’ll see your Instagram social profile in the list of Connected Profiles.
