It won't really work on Instagram since you can't have a link inside a post that works on Instagram.  So you get a photo of your email with some sort of title and a link, but then the link doesn't work.

Hi @SueA97 - That's correct. Instagram doesn't allow links on Instagram posts, so it's a limitation of their platform unfortunately. They do allow for a link in the bio section of your page, or if you run an Instagram ad if you're interested in Instagram Ad's.

Right.  So I won't use this feature at all.  That is if I keep using Constant Contact now that you've made it impossible for me to use my email designs from the previous version.  REALLY bad new interface.  Not happy at all. Hate it as a matter of fact.  Shopping for a new marketing email program now.

Hi @RickV35,

 

I see a successful social post from your account. Were you able to get it to work?

NO, it doesn't really work because I am not advertising on Instagram.  So the links to my email are not worth anything.
