With PromoRepublic it is possible to post Instagram Reels and Stories manually. As you might know, Instagram API restricts posting reels and stories as mentioned in their documentation.

Instagram stories and reels are a powerful channel to build your brand and engage with customers. You can use PromoRepublic to prepare and schedule your Instagram stories on the desktop, and you’ll get a push notification to your phone with everything you need to complete your story on Instagram. You will need to have the PromoRepublic app installed on your mobile device.

  1. On your computer, open PromoRepublic and start the post creation. Don't forget to assign the proper size to the picture in the Graphics Editor.

Adjust the artwork dragging it by the corners.

2. Select the Instagram account you want to publish to.

3. Once the content is ready, select Send to mobile. Then pick a date and time to schedule your post.

4. Make sure that you have installed the mobile app on your phone.

Tap Schedule, and the post will show up in your Calendar when you have scheduled it for.

5. You will receive a mobile notification at the scheduled date and time that your post is ready to publish.

6. Tap the notification or go to the On Hold section in the PromoRepublic app. Click on the red Post button to start the process.

7. On the next step, it says that you have to log into the necessary Instagram account (if you have several) and that the caption (if any) will be automatically copied, so you don't have to re-write but simply paste it. Hit OK to proceed.

8. Select Stories. At this stage, you're redirected to the Instagram app.

9. Now, you see regular Instagram functionality. Edit your picture if needed and hit the arrow at the bottom.

10. And finally, share it.

Please note that a story can't be re-posted in the Calendar, unlike a feed post.
