by Brett Bernstein on

At Gatsby, we're constantly innovating to empower brands with tools that boost their influencer marketing and ambassador management efforts. Making you more efficient. 

Today, we're thrilled to introduce a highly requested feature that will simplify your community and ambassador management – Automated Instagram Story Responses, with filters!


Takes < 5 minutes to create your first auto-response

As influencer marketing continues to evolve, it's essential for brands to stay ahead of the curve. With this new automation feature, responding to all the Instagram Stories you are tagged in becomes easier, scalable and way more efficient. Plus with our filters, you can still keep the responses targeted and personable. Here's why it's a game-changer:

1. Real-Time Engagement: Instantly engage with your audience by automatically responding to all the user-generated content (UGC) coming through in Stories. Plus, with our advanced filters, you can set different responses based on the number of followers the consumer has, whether they follow your brand already, and more.

2. Time Efficiency: Say goodbye to the tedious task of manually responding to countless Story tags while sifting through different user profiles. Our advanced filters save you valuable time and ensure that your interactions are tailored to your specific audience segments.

3. Consistency: Maintain a consistent brand image and messaging. Think of it similar to building out a basic Klaviyo Flow or Attentive Journey, but for Instagram DMs. Where if someone tags you in their Story AND has > 1,000 followers AND they follow you, they get a specific message right away. If they meet different parameters, they receive a different message. This is an expansion of our other DM automation features where you can set DM auto-replies based on a keyword or key phrase received in an IG message.

4. Boost Visibility and get more UGC: By responding to more of the  Stories you're tagged in (without stressing over the 24-hour clock) you will increase your chances of being featured in more of your audience's Stories. This boosts your brand's visibility and reinforces your brand identity in a more targeted way.

Gatsby's new Automated Instagram Story Responses with Filters is designed to enhance your ambassador management and influencer marketing strategy with an unprecedented level of speed, efficiency, and personalization. Elevate your brand's influence on Instagram today by trying out this feature.
