How To Create An Instagram Business Profile

We recommend any business that creates an Instagram account should make their profile an Instagram Business Profile. This feature has a range of benefits such as having a contact button, important analytics, the ability to create Instagram ads as well as being better seen on the timeline due to the new algorithm liking business profiles. The switch from personal to business is free, all you require is a corresponding business Facebook page to connect the account to. The process does not need to be complicated, therefore we have created this blog post which simply explains the process!
