How does this automation work?

Bardeen's workflow automation helps businesses harness the power of their online presence by integrating Airtable with Instagram, creating a seamless data sourcing and research operation. With this playbook, marketers and social media managers can automatically extract valuable profile data from Instagram links listed in Airtable, update their databases with the latest information, and maintain an organized repository of influencer or competitor insights.

Here's how this workflow automates the extraction and update of Instagram profile data into Airtable:

  • Step 1: Retrieve Airtable records - The workflow begins by extracting all the values from a specified Airtable table which contains a list of Instagram profile links.
  • Step 2: Extract profile links - It then isolates the specific column that contains the Instagram profile links from the records obtained previously.
  • Step 3: Identify Instagram URLs - This step involves finding all the Instagram profile URLs from the extracted column content.
  • Step 4: Scrape Instagram profiles - Using the Scraper integration, the workflow scrapes data from the Instagram profiles in the background, gathering detailed profile information.
  • Step 5: Update Airtable records - Finally, the extracted profile data is used to update the records in the original Airtable table, ensuring your dataset is current and comprehensive.
