Instagram Direct Messaging Integration

Instagram Direct Messages (DMs) are a great way to communicate with leads and contacts. Now you can integrate your Instagram account to Incorp Media LLC, to give you additional options for automating workflows and communicating directly with leads in the Conversations tab. Follow the steps below to learn how to integrate your Instagram account for DMs.

Step 1: Connect your Facebook and Instagram accounts

  • To use Instagram Direct Messaging, you’ll need to have the Instagram Account connected to a Facebook page. Copy and paste this URL  for Instagram’s instructions on how to do this:

NOTE: You will also need to ensure you have correctly enabled your Instagram messaging connection across other apps and systems. This is done through Facebook/Instagram directly, within your settings. Check out Facebook/Instagram’s article on how to ensure your settings are properly enabled to take advantage of this feature.
