*** API UPDATE: Instagram's new Graph API, which will be the default API for all partner apps, including Iconosquare, from April 2018, is designed for Business Profiles. Many of Iconosquare's current and future features will now only be available for Business Profiles. So now is the time to convert, if you haven't done so already! Need more information? Check out this article on our blog. ***
To convert your Instagram account into an Instagram Business Profile, you'll need to do the following:
1.) Create A Facebook Business Page. Don’t have one? It’s free! You can follow Facebook’s instructions to set one up here. (Psst! If you don't have the time or resources to manage an FB Business Page as well as your IG profile, you can unpublish the Page after you create it in the Settings -> General -> Page Visibility and you'll still have an Instagram Business Profile!!)
2.) Switch your account to a Business Profile in the 'Edit Pro' section of your Instagram app (Options —> Business settings —> Switch to Business Profile.):
3.) Link it to the relevant Page by selecting it from the list of Pages you manage!
As you set up your Instagram business profile, Instagram will display your business category as it’s set up on Facebook, so check that your settings on Facebook accurately reflect your business.
If you're on one of our legacy plans (ELITE, MASTER, CORPORATE or ENTERPRISE) or one of our new plans (PRO, ADVANCED or AGENCY) you'll then be able to link your IG insights directly to your Iconosquare account! Follow the steps here.
