How to Schedule Instagram Posts with Product Tags

More brands, social media managers, and agencies are discovering new ways of managing their social media by switching to Vista Social.

Here’s how to create and schedule product tags:

Step #1: Connect Your Instagram Business Profile

If you had connected your Instagram business account prior to September 30, 2022—you will need to reconnect it again.

Product tagging requires a new permission that Vista Social has to request, but don’t worry; this can be done in a few short clicks. 

Step #2: Create Your Post

Upload or import your content from your Media Library to the Publisher—product tags can be added to carousels, images, or videos! 

Discover trending content with Vista Social's content discovery tool

If you don’t have any content ready, you can utilize our content discovery tool in Vista Social to find high-quality media for your post.

Step #3: Customize your Post

While captions are optional, you can write your caption and take advantage of our strategic hashtag tools to maximize your Facebook Reels reach.
