Whether you’re just now creating a website for your new business or getting your existing company up-to-speed with its social media strategy, having the right type of Instagram account can help you succeed online.
A business Instagram account will allow you to be easily identified by others on the platform as a BUSINESS, and it will also give you extra tools that aren’t available to personal accounts. Here's how to switch your account:
Convert an existing Instagram account:
Step 1: From the app, navigate to your profile page.
Step 2: Click on the menu at the top right-hand corner. It looks like three short-stacked lines.
Step 3: From the menu, select “settings.”
Step 4: Once you’re in the settings menu, click on “account.”
Step 5: From here, you should see at the bottom of the account menu that there are highlighted options to switch to a business account. Click on it, and you might be asked to fill in extra missing details or just prompted to switch over right away. That’s it.
