Maybe you’re a seasoned ’grammer. Maybe the explosion of this app from photo-sharing to booming business hub has evaded you so far. Either way, it’s time to give your business its own Instagram account.  

You’ve got three ways to get set up.  

  • Already on Instagram? You can choose to switch your personal account into a business one.  
  • Want to keep your existing account personal? Add a new account and switch that to business status one instead.  
  • Don’t know your @ from your elbow? Download the Instagram app for iOS, Android or Windows and tap ‘Sign Up’ to follow the simple steps to open your first account.  

All ready with an account you’re set to switch to business? Let’s go!

1. Log in to the account you want to switch to a professional one

2. In the top right corner, click the menu

3. Tap 'Settings'

4. Otherwise tap 'Account'

5. Choose ‘Switch to Professional account’

6. Choose your business category

7. Add your business details

8. Tap ‘Done’

And that’s it. You’re now the proud owner of your very own business Instagram account.  #Nicejob
