How to Set Up Auto Reply on Instagram Direct Messages

There are very few actions that can be carried out on an Instagram account, but using external tools. For this reason, the possibilities of using this social network are generally limited to what it offers in advance.

Auto Reply on Instagram

InstaChamp, a tool external to Instagram, offers a set of direct message automation tools, a common practice in managing accounts on other social networks that, to date, is considered difficult to approach from Facebook’s sister platform.

Automate responses to direct messages on Instagram with InstaChamp

The only task that allows automating Instagram through its own tools, channeled through the Business Suite, is the scheduling of publications. Automatic message scheduling is not an aspect covered directly by the platform and usually, unofficial services appear erratically offering solutions, until they are closed by Instagram for breaching their terms of service.

InstaChamp, unlike the cases just mentioned, has the approval of Facebook and communicates directly with the platform after the Instagram service through the Messenger API.

This tool offers the possibility of defining an automatic thank you message for each occasion in which the configured account is mentioned in an Instagram story. Also, a welcome message can be set up to greet first-time direct messages.

Another interesting aspect, which adds to the InstaChamp tools, is the configuration of specific messages for funnels based on keywords. With this resource, it is possible to configure, for example, answers for common queries about a sales catalog. These messages may include links to websites or mentions to other Instagram accounts.

InstaChamp offers the possibility of increasing the organic traffic of an account, since the interactions within the platform enhance its algorithmic visibility. Through the messages that can be configured through this platform, content creators, influencers, brands, and e-commerce stores, can retain their audience with more fluid communication, enhance communication strategies based on calls to action and even provide customer support outside of normal business hours.

InstaChamp offers a free entry plan, which limits interactions to a maximum of 250 contacts and also adds a signature that mentions the use of its service. The sum of new functions and the elimination of the branding of the platform in its answers is obtained through a paid subscription.

WhatsApp Video Calls

It is the new of the popular messaging platform, owned by Facebook, which makes video calls more functional, seeking that people do not miss interesting moments because they were not able to join in its beginning.

Even if they are ignored at first, they can be accessed later

In addition, users will be able to leave them and re-enter while they are still in progress, and even if they have not accessed the video calls to which they were invited first, they will have a screen where they can see the attendees who are already inside as well as those users who have also been invited but have not yet joined them.

If that is not enough, if users ignore participating in them at first, if they change their mind, they may later join them without prejudice.

Despite the de-escalation and reopening of non-essential activity in some territories, there are still epidemiological situations where the most advisable thing is to avoid physical contact, so video calls will continue to be the order of the day to maintain contact with family and friends from distance.

They know this perfectly on WhatsApp, where they also know that they have a tireless competition that does not stop evolving either, so all these functions seek precisely to make things easier for users who use their service to be in contact with others.

They also add that with the arrival of these capabilities, the security and privacy of end-to-end encryption will continue to be maintained in their service.

We do not know if this news will be reflected or reacted in other services, but the truth is that the competition does not stop increasing its benefits despite everything, so video calls will continue to be more than present over time, having become part essential of communication in our lives.
