Build an Instagram Business Profile
Instagram is a wonderful tool you can use to help build your business’ online presence. It uses visually pleasing images and videos to capture the audience’s attention and deliver impactful content.
There are personal profiles and business profiles. The business profile gives your business the additional features it needs to help you achieve success in your online presence. These features include Instagram Ads and Instagram Insights. With insights, you can see important data on the demographics and actions that users take on your profile.
Convert to a Business Profile
Navigate to your Instagram Profile. Go to Settings, choose Account then pick “Switch to Professional Account”.
You will have the option to choose between Creator and Business.
After choosing Business, connect your profile to Facebook. If you do not have a Facebook page, you can choose “Don’t Connect to Facebook Now”.
Choose a category that best fits your business and review your contact info.
Do you want to be contacted by email, text, or call?
From here, your profile will be searched differently. When people search for your category, you might just pop up, but that will depend on if you’re an active Instagram user or not. Being active and consistent is key to building an online presence.
Personalize and Brand your Profile
Once you have successfully switched over to a business profile, it’s time to personalize your business by creating your brand.
The first 3 things that your audience will identify you by will be the following: Logo, username, bio.
• Make sure your logo represents your business and easily identifiable
