It is clear that managing several Instagram accounts from different customers can be challenging.
We know it, so we have prepared a small list of tips on how to manage different Instagram accounts.

Creating a calendar or an Excel spreadsheet with the content corresponding to each Instagram profile that you manage will help you not make a mistake when publishing content.
✅ Create a color for each profile you manage, this distinction will speed up your work.

Manage in real time
With Metricool you can control what happens in real time on the Instagram profiles that you manage.
These two options will be useful for your strategy:
➡️ Hashtag tracker
A tool to monitor a specific hashtag and see how it has worked. You can use it for an event, a hashtag of your client that you are interested in promoting, etc.
If you manage multiple Instagram accounts, you might have mixed the comments received on the posts of different Instagram accounts
From Metricool you can reply to them without having to go to Instagram.
Plan and schedule your content
The ability to schedule your content on Instagram will save you time at work.
Instead of thinking about what to post every day, organize your day and spend an afternoon scheduling all the content for each profile.
➡️ Program your posts
- Prepare your post and click on ‘New post’.
- Write the text, add the image or video and choose the time to publish. In Metricool you can choose the best hours, the one in which your audience will participate the most.
- Choose whether you want to receive the photo by email or via notification on your phone. And voilà, you already have your content scheduled.
There are other ways to schedule your content on Instagram that will help you manage your work time:
✅ You can schedule your content by adding a file in CSV format to save time and schedule all your content in bulk instead of doing it one at a time.
✅ You can create autolists with the content so that the post circulates in several days. You can create an autolist by uploading all the information in bulk in CSV format or writing it manually.
➡️ Add multiple links to your Instagram account
As you may have noticed, Instagram does not allow you to add links in the publications but it does in the profile bio. However, it only allows you to put a link, something that limits your chances to drive traffic to your client’s website from Instagram.
With Metricool this issue is over, you can create a special link that includes several different links that will take the user to the pages you want: a product you want to sell, an event you want to organize, etc.
You will only have to add a button or image and the different links that you want to add. Simply, copy the link that Metricool has generated and paste it in your bio.
➡️ Instagram Product Tags
We also have a new feature for the inbox. Now, professional Instagram accounts who have a shop are able to tag products in their posts.
The process is very simple and easy to use. The requirements are this: Have a business account, accept the new premises, and have a shop on Instagram.
Once we have all the requirements, we have to access the planner and select the photo in which we want to tag the products. Then go to the presets and we will see a new bottom titled “Add tag product”.
A new window will open to allow us to place the tag in the area of the photo where the product is.
Once we have selected the placement, we can select the catalog and product that we want to tag. At the end we will see the tag in the presets.
Generate and download custom reports
With Metricool you can create reports on the performance of Instagram profiles and download it in PDF or PPT. Also, you can configure your settings to receive an email with the report monthly.
