Instagram has become one of the most important social media platforms for brands to:

How to Set Up An Instagram Marketing Account For Your Business

Step 1: Create An Account

  1. Get the Instagram business app. You will see two options through which you can sign up:
  • Facebook
  • Phone or email. Use your business email address if you choose this option.
  1. Fill in details, click next and follow the prompts until you come to the welcome screen. Click next to get to the home page.

Step 2: Upload a Profile Picture and Write a Catchy Bio

Click on the profile icon and upload your logo. Ensure the cropping feature doesn’t cut out important parts.
Expert Quote : “The most important thing is to have conversations with your audience constantly. Ask them questions, find out about them – their concerns, their needs and what they want from you. This will help you to create content that serves your social audience directly and you know they’ll engage because they’re dictating what you’re creating, rather than you creating content and hoping someone enjoys it or find it useful”-Ciara Heslam, Global Social Media Manager at All Things Hair
To write a bio, click “edit profile”. Instagram bios are limited to 150 characters; make your bio concise, catchy and convincing. You don’t have to optimize the bio as Instagram bios do not appear in search.  However:
  • Include a clickable URL that will direct visitors to your website.
  • Include a call to action.
