Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and many other social media platforms have a huge user base. Instagram is no exception. It has a strong user base and a huge potential to grow because it has good features. Many businesses have been using Instagram to connect with their target audience and get more customers by posting appealing pictures or videos on Instagram. To use all the benefits of Instagram, businesses need to integrate Instagram with other accounts such as email, payrpl, contacts etc. Integrating Instagram with other services will help you to save time and increase efficiency. This integration can be achieved by using business tops like Microsoft Exchange.
The name Instagram Business may sound confusing but in reality it is nothing but a feature in the Instagram app that helps users make their account business-oriented. With this feature, you can add professional details such as your business name, website URL, company logo, and company description to your profile page. For example, if you use your personal account then your profile page appears like this. https://www.instagram.com/rudy_manzano/ but if you use your business account then your profile page appears like this. https://www.instagram.com/rudy_manzano_mexico/ .

There are two ways to integrate Instagram Business with Microsoft Exchange. First one is by using an app called Outlook Social Connector developed by MS itself which is available here. https://products.office..com/. The second way is by using an app called “Instaport” developed by an independent developer named Oleg Pronin which you can download here. http://www.pegpronin.com/software/. Instaport is the best app if you want to integrate multiple social media platforms with Office 365 or MS Exchange server because it supports almost all popular social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google+, YouTube, WhatsApp, Skype, Foursquare, Vimeo, Flickr, SoundCloud etc so you don’t need to install multiple apps to integrate different social media platforms with Office 365 or MS Exchange server (also see my earlier blog post. Both ways are explained below in detail along with their respective pros and cons.
Integrate Instagram Business with MS Exchange Server by using Outlook Social Connector
For detailed instructions on how to integrate Instagram Business with Outlook Social Connector check this article by IT Pro Portal. https://www.itprotoday.com/social/gmail-hotmail-outlook/how-to-integrate-instagram-into-office-365s-exchange-server/. Please note that Outlook Social Connector only supports accounts from Outlook so if your organization uses another email service such as Gmail or Yahoo Mail then you cannot use Outlook Social Connector to integrate Instagram Business with Office 365 or MS Exchange server . In addition, only the profile picture of the user is shown as a business contact in Outlook so many people do not want to use this option because they want their employees’ first name to be displayed as well as their profile picture in the customer database . However, there is a workaround for this problem that can be found here. http://blog1kino.ru/?p=310#comment_962317 . The steps are as fplows. Step 1. Open this link from your browser. https://www.instaportapp.com/. Step 2. Click on the “Create Account” button at the top right corner of the page to create a new account for yourself or existing account if you already have one . Step 3. Verify your email address by clicking on the link sent by Instaport through email . Step 4. Log into your account using your credentials and click on “Social Media” tab at the top right corner of the page . Step 5. Click on “Twitter” tab at the top left corner of the page and click on “Connect now” button . Step 6. Click on “Allow” button when Twitter asks permission to connect to Instaport . Step 7. Click on “Authorize” button when Twitter shows a request message asking permission to connect to Instaport . Step 8. Click on “Allow” button when Twitter shows a request message asking permission to connect to Instaport . Now your Twitter account will be connected with Instaport and you can use Instaport as a standalone application to manage your Twitter account and integrate it with MS Exchange server and Office 365 etc . However, you will only see the profile picture of the user as a business contact in Outlook so many people do not want to use this option because they want their employees’ first name to be displayed as well as their profile picture in the customer database (see workaround mentioned above. In addition, if you want all the tweets sent by the users of Twitter then you need to purchase a premium version of Instaport which costs $24 per year (check this link for more details. http://blog1kino.ru/?p=310#comment_962317 . So this method is not recommended if you have only one Twitter account to integrate LinkedIn with MS Exchange server or Office 365 etc or if you have many Twitter accounts from which you want all tweets sent by those users. Note that there is no free version of Instaport so it is not useful if you have only one social media account such as Instagram Business to integrate with MS Exchange server or Office 365 etc despite being cheaper than Outlook Social Connector ($24 per year vs $20 per year. .
