BufferAdd to Schedule

You can easily schedule the reposting of Instagram content to your other social media sites by using Buffer. Zapier can automatically capture Instagram content and add that content as a scheduled item in a Buffer queue without copying and pasting. Once you set up this Instagram to Buffer integration, new photos and videos from that point forward are individually added to a Buffer queue at a scheduled date and time.

How It Works

  1. A new tagged photo or video is created in Instagram
  2. Zapier adds the media as a new item in a Buffer queue at a scheduled date and time

What You Need

  • An Instagram account
  • A Buffer account
