Free Instagram Aggregator: How to Use it & Examples
Add Instagram posts to your website for free with a fully customizable aggregator.
Types of Instagram posts you can aggregate
Besides your Instagram account, aggregators can collect Instagram posts from other accounts. You can set the aggregator to source posts from the following:
Instagram business account
If you choose this option, the aggregator will collect only your Instagram posts and display them on your website.
Instagram business account IGTV
Do you go live on Instagram? You can curate your lives specifically, if you want a place where website viewers can watch your videos. You could put this in the home page of your website, or create a dedicated video page to embed the content.
Instagram business hashtag
Do you have a branded hashtag for content regarding your brand or products? If so, use the aggregator’s Instagram hashtag setting to capture any content that uses your hashtag. Besides providing your site with interesting and relevant content, it will showcase the popularity of your product or brand to your website’s visitors.
Instagram business mention
Are people talking about you or your brand? Use an aggregator to show your website visitors how much you are trending. The aggregator will collect every post that mentions your business account name, and you can choose the nicest ones to post on your website. It’s ideal for showing off your five-star reviews and other positive feedback from fans and customers.
Do you love posting Instagram stories? You can aggregate these separately from your other content. Create a dedicated place to display your stories, such as the sidebar of your blog.
Examples of Instagram feeds embedded in websites
When using a social media aggregator to collect and share content from Instagram feeds, you get to choose how the content appears on your site. If you use a top-quality aggregator, the default setting will provide a clutter-free presentation with lots of whitespace around each post. If you prefer, you can tweak the display to better fit your website’s design or your unique preferences. The best Instagram aggregators are user-friendly, so you don’t need special skills to modify the appearance of posts.
