Extract every posts from a list of Instagram accounts

When you're doing marketing, it is key to know your niche. And also your competition.
Study your competition and use their good ideas, while leaving aside what you don't like that much.

This Instagram automation will visit a list of profiles for you and extract every single post they ever posted. This includes the image/video, but also the stats (likes, etc.), hashtags, engagements, locations, and more.

Keep informed, get new ideas, filter out the stuff that didn't work and keep the good and discover the channels your competitors are focused on.

4. Easy & safe authentication

This automation will connect to the website on your behalf. The safest and most efficient way for Phantombuster to authenticate as yourself is by using your session cookies.

To make that process as easy as possible you can use Phantombuster's browser extension. It's a 2-click installation.

If you're operating from another browser and/or want to do it manually, here is how to do it.

5. Specify which Instagram posts you want to scrape

Create a spreadsheet on Google Spreadsheet.

Fill it with Instagram posts URLs. One post URL per row, all in column A.

Make this spreadsheet public so Phantombuster can access it.

Paste the spreadsheet's URL to Phantombuster.

Start your automation!

You're all set. Just click "launch" to get your automation started!

Set this Instagram automation on repeat

Once your automation's configuration is ready, you can schedule repetitive launches. This will allow you to avoid rate limits, scrape more data and get your automated workflows to spread over days, weeks, even months.

To do so, go to your dashboard and look for your automation's “Settings” button.

Then, select a frequency:

And Save those new settings at the bottom of the page.
