Mentioned brands on Instagram Stories to enhance brand awareness

Redirection with Tags in Instagram Stories to Make Every Fan Your Brand Ambassador

What else can you do on Instagram? In addition to the Post Auto Reply we previously mentioned, the other strongest unique function of Instagram is Instagram Stories. Brands can use Instagram Stories to engage fans in bilateral interactions such as votes, guessing games, and a two-choice multiple choice quiz. In the past, brands were required to actively reach out to fans. With the BotBonnie bot, you can turn your passive brand into an active one so that when a fan mentions the brand account in an Instagram Story, it automatically receives a designated message from the brand that enhances loyalty and interactions.

Take out your mobile phone right now and post any Instagram Story with the tag @botbonnie_tw, and you will receive instructions we have meticulously prepared to help you increase the number of fans on Instagram. Take a look at the latest features on Instagram!

Scenario 2. Random Reply: Multiple sets of private response

If you add multiple private message responses, when a fan tags the brand account in an Instagram Story, the bot system will randomly select one of the messages to reply with.

The newest great function of the Instagram chatbot is the “Instagram story tag response”, which automatically takes fans into a small box for private messaging and interactions.
