If you need to save specific Instagram profile data for reporting or analysis, doing it manually is always time-consuming.
This playbook will automate the process. It will copy any Instagram profile into an Airtable database with information like name, profile link, biography, follower count, following count, and number of posts. You can quickly create a shareable resource for clients to stay up to date on accounts and posts. If you are a business owner, you can keep tabs on competitors or influencers and keep a record of their strategies, products, and services, allowing you to make better decisions. Or maybe you want to compile up-to-date information about a celebrity, political figure, or recent news! Whatever your goals are, this automation will help you reach them.
Let’s set it up!
The first step is creating an Airtable database with the fields you want to save.
When you run the playbook for a profile, Bardeen will extract information from the profile and get information like name, profile link, biography, follower count, following count, and number of posts.
You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Airtable.
Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbook, if you already have Bardeen extension installed.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and click to run the playbook for Instagram profile scraping. It will extract data for you and save it to Airtable.
Click on the playbook card, to setup the playbook.
You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
