Would you like to make it even easier for your Instagram followers to buy your products? When using Tailwind's notification posting method, you can tag your products to create Shoppable Posts!
Please note that Shoppable Posts are only available for Business Instagram accounts. Learn how to create an Instagram Business Account here!
While tagging products isn't something that you can do natively in Tailwind right now, you’ll be able to tag products within Instagram’s app once it’s time to post when using the SMS Reminder method. Please note that this is not available when using the Auto Post method.
Step 1: Schedule your post for SMS Reminder
Create or upload a new draft from your Tailwind home page.
From your Draft, select 'SMS Reminder' as the 'Post Method'
Enter your 10-digit 'Phone Number' and select 'Save Number'
Please note: When a new phone number is added or an existing phone number is edited, you will be sent a verification code. SMS post notifications will only be sent out to verified phone numbers.
Enter the remaining post details then click 'Schedule Post'
Sit back and relax! You will receive an SMS notification when your post is ready to be published
Step 2: Tag products and publish post on Instagram
Open the text message and tap on the link included in the text message to open up the 'Time to Post' page
Tap on the 'Copy Caption to Clipboard' button
Long press the 'Long press this button to download' button
Tap the 'Download Linked File' button from the pop-up menu
Please note: For publishing single images only, you can bypass this by long-pressing the image displayed on the page and selecting "Save to Photos" - then skip ahead to step 12
Navigate to the 'Files' app
Tap on your recently downloaded file, tap the share button, and 'Save' the image/video
Open the Instagram app and click the "+" icon to create a new post
Select the post type from the pop-up menu
Select the saved image or video from your camera roll
Please note: If you are uploading multiple images, you need to select the Carousel button
Paste the caption that was saved to your clipboard in the 'Write a caption...' box
Select "Tag Products" then enter the names of the products you want to tag and select them as they appear in the search box
And finally, tap the 'Share' button to publish your new Instagram post!
That's it! You will now be reminded when it's time to post and be able to quickly tag your products to create Shoppable Posts on Instagram! 🎉
