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 Playbooks.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card. The setup flow will start.
You will be asked to specify the Airtable that will contain the information. After you choose the database, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Airtable.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Airtable that you want to associate with the information on the left. If you don’t want a piece of information, leave that field empty, and it will be skipped. That’s it!

This playbook saves me at least 1 hour every day. It used to take me a significant amount of time to scrape leads from various platforms manually.
