Boost your Instagram reach and engagement with auto-generated stories by API. Produce various storytelling videos and images for e-commerce products, real estate listings, funny facts, educational tips, quotes, and more. Let's automate stories using a no-code tool like Zapier or coding languages such as Node.js, PHP, Ruby, or Python.
Instagram Stories, whether it's a photo or video post, require a vertical format with a 9:16 aspect ratio. There are many pre-made templates available to choose from. But if you have something special in mind, you can create your own designs using the template editor, which supports emojis and text animations to perfectly align with Instagram's style.
The elements in your template can be marked as dynamic. As a result, you will be able to replace its content with other text captions, images, and video clips to create new and unique stories.
Now we can use the API to auto-generate stories for Instagram. The API can be invoked by programming languages such as Node.js, PHP, Ruby, and Python as well as by no-code tools like Zapier. As an example, we'll use the cURL bash program.
Using our story template from step 1 as a base, we simply call the API, specifying our template ID and any values we wish to add. Let's create a video that includes a title, multiple facts, as well as emojis, along with a background video. Sending this request will return a URL for the video.
With a script or no-code scenario, the above command can be completely automated. If you're a developer, or have one in your team, you can add Instagram Story creation capabilities to your application, so your customers and users can create their own. Another option is to use a no-code tool like Zapier, which lets you build custom workflows with over 5,000 apps to create Instagram Stories on autopilot.
And if you don't need a fully automated workflow, you can make Instagram Stories using a simple spreadsheet or form. These methods do not require API integration, so check them out as well.
