Improving The Interactions With Your Audience

Buffer saw a growing need to help its customers engage with Instagram users who were leaving comments on their posts and interacting with their content.



Engage by Buffer, which utilizes the Instagram Comment Moderation API, offers a way for brands to stay on top of their audience members who are interacting with their posts. Buffer already has products such as Analyze and Publish, but Engage was a missing piece.

Buffer saw that brands really want to interact with their audience and their audience doesn't want to be ignored when they leave comments. Engage addresses this by offering its customers a dashboard where they can keep track of all the comments that have been made on their posts. With a streamlined feed, emoji commenting, and frequently used responses, comments don't fall through the cracks and customer service increases.

Engage allows brands to engage with the most important comments and gain the trust of their audience.

Labels are automatically placed on comments that fit certain criteria such as questions, potential sales, and important comments.

Users love getting their personal emails to zero new messages, and with Engage, you can get your unreplied to lnstagram messages to zero.
