The ability to schedule a First Comment on Instagram has been one of our most requested features from the PromoRepublic community. Are you ready to reap the benefits of Instagram hashtags without crowding your caption? We’re thrilled to officially launch it.

Now you can create, schedule, and automatically post the first comment on your Instagram Business posts, available for all PromoRepublic users.

The first comment on Instagram isn’t limited to adding hashtags, you can add whatever text you like, and it will appear as the first comment below your post and caption. Whether you want to kick-start a conversation, ask questions to your audience or even reveal a competition winner in your first comment, PromoRepublic has got you covered!

Guide on How to Auto-Post First Comments from PromoRepublic to Instagram:

  1. Start the post creation the way you prefer, for example, with the Create Post button on the top right.

  2. Select the Instagram Business page and you'll see the additional text box below the caption box.

You can add your comment here (up to 2,000 characters, 10 mentions, and 30 hashtags).


What requirements are needed for the First Comment?

  • The Instagram Profile must be a Business Profile (not Personal or Creator)

  • The Facebook Business Page must be authenticated with PromoRepublic to enable this feature.
