Automatically post the 'First Comment' on your Instagram posts through Sendible and increase engagement with hashtags.

We've consulted our Feedback Portal once again, and next on your (our users) wish list is the 'First Comment' feature for Instagram. 🙌

When composing posts to Instagram Business accounts within Sendible, you will soon be able to optionally include the content of the 'First Comment'. The 'First Comment' will then be visible immediately after the Instagram post is published. 📈

What are the benefits of adding a 'First Comment' to Instagram posts? 🤔

Many Instagram users use hashtags to increase their visibility and engagement across the social platform. By using hashtags in Instagram posts, users can target people who may not follow them, but are searching for images by a hashtag that is included in your posts. #️⃣ This means, using brand appropriate hashtags in your Instagram posts has the ability to increase the reach of your content. 

It has become increasingly popular to post images to Instagram with clean, descriptive captions - users don't want their message to be lost amongst hashtags. It's now a common trend to include the brand appropriate hashtags in the first comment of the Instagram post, this way, the hashtags don't distract from the caption, but are still searchable and do their job of increasing visibility. 👀

We're working hard on implementing the new 'First Comment' feature in the coming weeks. Do look out for it as we would love to hear your feedback! 🗣

Keep adding those ideas to the Feedback Portal, we need to know what you want to see next. 🏆
