How does the Instagram Feed Extension help my store?

The module brings about a whole new dimension of marketing possibilities to your Magento 2 store. It lets you organize and share relevant content, as well as customize the way this content is shared.

Every business is different, but methods of intelligently shining the spotlight on what matters are something that every business needs. Here are just a few key features our module brings to the table:

  • It's insanely easy to configure and set up - All you need to do is insert the widget and configure it to your liking, add your desired Tag or User ID and save the page!
  • You can display multiple feeds from multiple users - This is very useful if you have multiple brands!
  • You have various design and layout options available - You can choose the container background color, set a custom title, choose how many images you'd like to show in total, as well as how many you'd like to display per row.

These are only a couple of the features the extension comes with. Check out the rest on the Product Page here: Magento 2 Instagram Feed Widget. Let's see how easy it is to add the widget to our Home Page.
