Posting Activities

Gramto offers you two powerful options when it comes to publishing your content to Instagram, Instant Posting and Scheduled Posting.

1. Instant Posting

Gramto is the first Instagram auto poster that lets you publish post instantly to your Instagram accounts from any web browser.

With most other services, they let you schedule your post but would not let you post instantly. This is a feature we have gone an extra mile to achieve because the official Instagram API does not let you do this, but to make your Instagram marketing easier, we went an extra mile.

How to Post Instantly

To Publish your content to Instagram Instantly;

  • Click on the Add Post menu, select your post type (Photo/Video, Story or Album),
  • Upload or import your Images/Videos
  • Write your Caption
  • Select your desired Instagram Accounts to post
  • When you’re sure everything’s fine, Click on the Post Now button

And you have successfully posted to your Instagram Account (s). Click on the account name to see the post live on Instagram.

2. Scheduled Posting

This is one of the best ways to interact with your followers and prospective customers and also grow your social media account.

Gramto lets you plan your posts ahead of time, this is very important because you don’t get to forget important dates and you do not need to be planning every single post you publish to Instagram.

To save time, you need to can set a single day to plan all of your posts for a week, month or even more. This will not only mean you’re active on social media but also save you a great deal of time to focus on other aspects of your business.

How do you Schedule post on Gramto?

To schedule your content to post at a later time on Gramto;

  • Click on the Add Post menu, select your post type (Photo/Video, Story or Album),
  • Upload or import your Images/Videos
  • Write your Caption
  • Select your desired Instagram Accounts to post
  • Tick the Schedule box
  • Select your desired date and time to post
  • When you’re sure everything’s fine, Click on the Schedule the Post button

You can view the progress of a scheduled post by clicking the Scheduled Post menu item, this will open the schedule calendar, click on the desired day that you have scheduled a post, you can also click the Add Post option on each of the calendar days to start a schedule.

3. Captions

The Caption section on our website lets you save an unlimited number of captions for later use. This is a great way to save your list of Hashtags to be used on your posts for a period of time.

We always recommend using between 20-30 hashtags per post and at least 15 of these hashtags should be your generic hashtags that’ll fetch you better attention leading to lots of followers why others should be related to your service or product giving you better leads.

Saving captions makes your scheduling easier. You can easily pick from your captions, edit and add an image and publish.

Gramto do not let you repost an old content because it could place your account at risk, with captions who needs to re-post anyways.

How to Save and Use a Caption

To save a caption;

  • Goto Captions from the main menu
  • Click the Add New button
  • Enter Title and Caption in their respective boxes

You can add @username and #hashtags to captions.

AUTOMATION TOOLS

Gramto is beyond an Instagram Scheduler, it is a complete Instagram tool that does most of the activities you do as a human being on the platform, but this time round the clock and faster.

1. Auto Follow

The Auto follow function lets you follow up with 240 Instagram users daily on a complete autopilot. There is no better way to gain followers on Instagram than following hundreds of users daily and you’re sure to get some love back from the love you share.

You have three parameters to select from in choosing who to follow. You can follow by Hashtags, Locations and People. This not only streamlines those to follow but also let you follow relevant accounts who’ll also be interested in your business or account.

Seat and relax, the activity will run according to your settings. You can view the Auto-Follow Activity Log in the log section.

2. Auto Unfollow

When you have followed thousands of users with the auto-follow tool, you might want to reduce your number of followers to reduce your Follow to Unfollow ratio. You can unfollow up to 240 users in a day.

This tool lets you unfollow users based on advanced filtering parameters.

You can choose to unfollow users followed via Gramto’s Auto Follow tool or unfollow only users who do not follow-back. You can also choose to whitelist some accounts you do not wish to unfollow during the unfollowing process.

The auto comment function lets you start an interaction with others’ posts. This is one of the ways to be engaged and gain attention from others.

Instagram auto commenting has proved over time to be one of the most effective ways used by Instagram marketers to improve follower rate and drive sales.

Although this function has been abused by many, this is why we always encourage the use of spintax when auto-commenting and most importantly, post relevant comments and be creative about it to avoid your comments looking like spam.

Everyone loves to receive likes from fellow Instagrammers, and in return, they either give you likes back or they give even more by following you, leading to more potential customers.

The auto-like tool has the fastest speed on Gramto. You can give up to 300 likes daily with Gramto, and according oto statistics, you get an average of 6 followers from every 100 likes giving when you target the right hashtags and locations.

    I keep getting this message: (Something went wrong – InstagramAPI\Response\GenericResponse: Feedback required) What dose this mean? Can you fix it?

      Hello Chris,

      This is because there is too much load on the server that your account runs from.

      If you’re a paid subscriber, you can email us to get your free Private Proxy which will rectify issues like this.

      And if you’re a free user, you need to deactivate the activity that populates such error for a few days.

      Thank you.
