You asked and asked (and asked), and we delivered. As of today, your Gatsby promotion can automatically integrate with Instagram!
With over 600 million monthly active users and growing, Instagram is becoming the social channel for connecting awesome ecommerce brands with their loyal customers. It's the go-to channel for announcing new products, modeling the latest apparel lines, and in some cases, even gathering orders via the comments section.
Because IG is becoming key to ecommerce growth, there are a ton of tools to help brands acquire followers, but very few of them target your actual customers, and even fewer do it in an elegant flow that matches the customer experience on your site. It's for these reasons, and many more, that we're thrilled to be rolling out our first phase of a Gatsby / Instagram integration.
As of right now, every brand using Gatsby can add Instagram to their promotion strategy. In addition to Twitter or Facebook, shoppers will have the option to follow your brand on Instagram to receive your promo code or raffle entry.
Once they've authenticated, you'll be able to see a list of your customers that follow you and be able to follow them back, all from within your Gatsby brand portal.
Because every brand, from pre-launch to Enterprise, relies on Instagram, we made it available in every tier. That's right, Gatsby starts at just $19/mo and there's a free trial. Nothing to lose, so give it a shot and let us know what you think!
If you're an existing brand using Gatsby, simply log into your Brand Portal and click the Instagram toggle button.
If you're a new brand ready to take your promotions to the next level, sign up here.
As always, we're here day and night to answer questions. Reach out anytime, and stay tuned for more to come-
