Why share Threads on Instagram?

Sharing your clients’ Threads on their Instagram pages offers the following benefits:

  • Boost engagement. Threads posts can spark more intimate interaction and engagement with followers since the platform is designed for starting and joining conversations. Sharing your clients’ Threads posts on Instagram extends that engagement to wider audiences. Think more likes, shares, and comments. 
  • Build authenticity. Threads is all about establishing genuine connections and authenticity. Showcasing these posts on your clients’ Instagram helps reinforce the brand values they established with Threads followers.
  • Grow followers. Threads is relatively new, so not everyone knows about it yet. Posting your clients’ threads on their Instagram feeds lets followers know they’re on Threads. It can encourage followers to jump on the Threads train, check out your clients’ Threads profiles and content, and follow them on the platform. That’s one way of increasing your clients’ Threads followers. 
  • Content variety. Adding Threads posts to your clients’ regular Instagram content can help spice up their feeds. It can break the monotony and give your clients’ audiences something fresh, enticing them to interact with your content.

You can also send Threads content via Direct Messages (DMs) to Instagram or Facebook Messenger friends.

The process is pretty similar on Android and iPhone but with slight interface differences.

Share Threads on Instagram through your desktop
