To do that, you’ll need to connect your Business Instagram account with your Mediatoolkit account.

What can I track?

You will be able to monitor:

  • Instagram profiles based on 30 hashtags of your choosing

  • Specific Business Instagram profiles (add them under Edit query > Sources > Instagram > Specific source)

Both need to be manually set by you in the tool.

How do I track business profiles?

If you want to track specific business profiles, you will be able to add them while you’re setting up or editing queries.

Under the Sources section, click on Instagram and Specific profiles. Add the entire Instagram handle of a business profile you wish to track. You don’t have to use @ while typing the handle.

Keep in mind that if you’re collaborating with an influencer who does not have a Business profile, make sure to ask them to switch their profile to Business so you can track it.

How do I track hashtags?

You can add hashtags you wish to track in the Integrations section.

Keep in mind that when you add hashtags, you won’t be able to change them in the next seven days. Because of this, it is important to add only relevant hashtags in order not to cross the limit.

After you’ve successfully connected your Instagram to Mediatoolkit, you will be able to enter 30 hashtags you want to track in your organization.

Which Instagram data can I monitor?

Instagram does not provide personal information from profiles, so most of your mentions authors will be anonymous_user.

The same will be shown in your Reports, as well.

Also, metrics won’t update. That means that the number of likes and comments on the posts will remain the same from the moment mention is collected.

Keep in mind that the tool will not be able to gather any posts older than 24h.

Lastly, don't forget to add hashtags as the last step, so the tool can collect Instagram mentions based on them.
