Instagram

Instagram is becoming more popular than Facebook.  So you don’t want to lose out to potential customers who would find you on Instagram.  Below are the instructions to sign up for an account.  

Set up an Instagram Business Account to give people more information about your products, service or business.

Step 1: Download and launch the app

Download the Instagram app for iOS from the App Store, Android from Google Play store or Windows Phone from the Windows Phone Store. Once the app is installed on your mobile phone, tap to open it.

Step 2: Let us know who you are

Tap Sign Up, then enter your email address and tap Next, or tap Log in with Facebook to sign up with your Facebook account.

Step 3: Set up a free business profile

Within the app, find settings, then scroll down to Switch to Business Account. Once you have a business account, you can add in pertinent business information like store hours, business address or a phone number. Create a Business Profile

*Be sure to add your website under your profile in the business account, so people can find your website.People will click on your pictures and also your profile picture to take them to your website and find out more about you and your business.

Step 4: Post your pictures and follow users

Start posting content you’d like to see in your feed using relevant hashtags, and start following similar accounts. Go to Instagram to get started. Post consistently. Try to post weekly at least about your business. Post pictures of your product or the service you offer. Stick to business, not personal pictures.

Examples of hastags:   #partiyorkies     #puppiestoocute   #mywebsitename
