Add your first source
The beauty of Kurato is that you can continuously receive engaging posts to schedule on your Instagram page. To make sure you never run out of content, go to the "Sources" tab and click on the "add first source" button. You can choose between an account to follow or a hashtag. Choose the right source on Kurato and validate it by clicking on the small + sign button.
Once this operation is completed, you will receive your first results in the "curation" tab a few seconds later.
Set the frequency of posting on Instagram
Foremost, it is essential to define your publication slots. Do you want to publish once, twice, or even three times a day? Do you want to publish every day? At what times is your audience active (for now you can find these answers on your Instagram apps, statistics tab > total followers > last section).
Schedule a post
Once you have defined your time slots, validate a first post in the "Curation" tab.
Once a first post has been accepted, you will find it in the "publication thread" tab in the time slot you chose earlier. Finally, you will have two choices
- Publish now: this allows you to relay hot news that cannot wait.
* Schedule for later: keep the proposed date or change the order of publication directly in the feed.
Adding #'s to a post
Kurato offers a "hashtag" tab that allows you to add your own lists of hashtags. If a post in the "Curation" tab does not have any hashtags, Kurato automatically retrieves hashtags from your list to add to your post.
It's up to you!
