If you run your own business or handle social media for a business, you should look into getting an Instagram business page. With something like a billion users, Instagram can be a great place for your business to attract new customers. The easy ability to pair pictures and text is great for advertising your products and services.

Creating an Instagram Business Page

To create a page for your business, follow these instructions:

  1. Download the Instagram app if you want to use Instagram on your mobile device.
  2. If you are on an Android device, tap on "Sign up with email or phone number." If you are on an iOS device, tap on "Create a new account." If you are on a computer, go to the Instagram website and click on the "Sign up" link.
  3. Enter your business' email or phone number.
  4. Get the confirmation code that Instagram sends to that email or number. Then enter the code and verify it.
  5. Choose a password and username. Remember, it's for a business account, so make sure it's a secure password.
  6. Go to the profile settings page. Tap or click on Switch to Business Profile. Provide all the information requested of you.
  7. Add a profile photo and write a bio for your business. Take your time to do this right. Hire a professional writer if you have to.

During the signup process, you will be given an opportunity to link your Instagram account to your Facebook business page. If you do not have one, you will have the chance to create one.
