Today, Sprinklr is excited to launch Instagram publishing – one of our customers’ most requested features that will help marketers efficiently manage cross-platform campaigns, ensure governance, and increase Instagram reporting insights.
Previously, brands could only post natively to Instagram. This took a significant amount of time and limited the amount of governance and reporting brands could create around Instagram posts. Now, it’s incredibly easy for brands to create superior customer experiences across Instagram and any other social platform – all in Sprinklr.
Sprinklr has been lobbying on behalf of our customers for years on the need to be able to publish to Instagram directly through Sprinklr and we’re thrilled to have been invited to partner with Instagram over the last year as they began to add capabilities like content publishing into their API.
“With a rapidly growing number of users, Instagram is increasingly a key platform for our marketing efforts and one of the best ways for us to promote engaging, visual content,” said Tree Ferran, Reebok Global Social Media. “It was already a win for Reebok to be able to launch paid Instagram ads and stories in Sprinklr, and finally having the addition of publishing organic posts to Instagram directly from Sprinklr without any extra steps is a huge game changer for us. Previously, my team could only publish content during a certain time when we were all awake and didn’t have visibility into reporting insights. Now, we can increase efficiency by publishing at any time, reduce brand risk and improve our ability to manage cross-platform campaigns. Most importantly, we’ll be able to improve our reporting to gain Instagram insights that will help us create better customer experiences at scale.”

With more than 500 million daily active users and 800 million monthly active users, Instagram has established itself as a “must-have” social channel for global brands. And more than 1,200 of them turn to Sprinklr as a “critically-need” social platform for managing their Instagram customer experiences. We are part of the Instagram Partner Program and an Instagram Ads API Partner; representing our customers’ needs, driving innovative solutions and realizing value across paid, owned and earned social media.
In addition to Instagram publishing launched today and reporting/comment capabilities launched over the summer, Sprinklr has put a significant focus on continuing to add Instagram-specific capabilities to support this increasingly popular channel.
On January 27th 2018, we announced the general availability of a number of new features that are for Instagram and other social channels we partner with, including the following:
Sprinklr now allows marketers to schedule multi-image Instagram Stories and Carousel posts in the Planner. Using this feature, team members can see a comprehensive view of content planned for Instagram and collaborate more effectively on content planning and strategy.

Now brands using the Sprinklr Planner can create evergreen campaigns with no end date needed. With this new capability, marketers can have ongoing campaigns across social media channels, including Instagram.
Brands can listen to Instagram Locations in Sprinklr Social Listening. With no need to provide additional query parameters, brands can now see the full scope of conversation at events, retail stores, and more. Location-based listening is a great way to better understand customer experiences as they’re taking place, and now brands can create topics that sync directly with the Instagram Places that their audience uses to tag posts on Instagram.
Marketers can improve their understanding of their audience’s reaction to ads with new metrics that measure the volume of positive, neutral, and negative comments on ads. Now, brands can automatically optimize their advertising efforts to manage paid campaigns based on accurate real-time audience sentiment.
This is completely unique to Sprinklr – no other enterprise social software can gain deep insights into how consumers feel about their ads. And, no other technology provider can help brands find these insights in the exact same platform where they manage social listening, content marketing, research, commerce and care.
Sprinklr is the only Instagram partner who lets brands manage owned, earned, and paid social on one central, integrated platform. We’re thrilled to continue to help brands take advantage of Instagram’s thriving community by building relevant, meaningful customer experiences.
