NB: As of the 25th September 2018, all new Instagram profiles added to Iconosquare must be Business Profiles. This includes free trials and adding new profiles to your paid plan. Further to this, as of the 23rd October, use of Iconosquare will be entirely restricted to Business Profiles. So if you have a personal account that you'd like to convert to a Business Profile so that you can add it to Iconosquare, you can learn how to do that below!
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. (If you want to finish setting up your page later, you can unpublish your page for now by clicking 'Settings' --> 'General' --> 'Page visibility' and selecting 'Page unpublished'. You'll still be a Business Profile with an unpublished page, but only for a limited time, so make sure you finish setting up your page!)
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.
