Creating a business Instagram Account
Step 1 – Create an Instagram account for your business
Step 2 – Go to Settings > Account > Switch to Professional Account.
Linking Instagram with Facebook
Instagram is owned by Facebook, and any advertising on Instagram must be done via the Business Manager in Facebook.
The first step is to link your Instagram account to Facebook.
Step 1 – Go to the Business Manager on Facebook. If you do not yet have a business page setup on Facebook, please do this first and then continue.
Step 2 – Click the Cog Icon in the navigational bar on the left hand side, followed by ‘Instagram Connection’
Step 3 – Click ‘Add new Instagram account’, enter your details, and press ‘Confirm’.
Assign us access to your Instagram Advertisers Account
Assigning us access to your Instagram advertisers account will give us access to just your business’ Instagram account, and not your personal instagram account, your business’ Facebook page nor your personal Facebook page.
We will also not have access to your Business’ Instagram messages – just the ability to post content, respond to comments, and manage your adverts.
Step 1 – Go to the Settings Page of your Business Manager on Facebook.
Step 2 – Under ‘Accounts’ in the left hand menu, click ‘Instagram Accounts’.
Step 3 – Ensure the correct Instagram account is selected, and click ‘Assign Partners’.
Step 4 – Enter the code we have provided to you separately, check the box at the top for ‘Content’ (all but one of the other checkboxes should automatically check too), then click next.
Step 5 – You’re done! Let us know when this is complete, and we will get to work on your adverts.
