What will change when you switch to a business account:
- A “contact” button
- An analytics section (called “insights”)
- A “promote” button to turn your posts into ads
What you need before you get started
An active Facebook Page (not your personal page) to link to your Instagram account.
Because when you’ll click to switch it will ask you to connect to your Facebook account.
Once you have an active Facebook Page, follow these steps.
1. Select the “Switch to business profile”
- Tap on the settings gear icon located on the top right of your Instagram profile.
- Scroll and select “Switch to Business Profile“
2. Connect to your Facebook page
Follow the instructions. Connect to the page that is associated with your Instagram account.
Give the necessary permissions. And you’re almost done.
3. Add your contact details
Add a phone number, email, or location so customers can reach you directly from a button on your profile.
