Get Instagram’s New Business Profile

Rejoice! Instagram has activated their new business profiles!  Have you made the switch?

If you haven’t converted your regular Instagram account to an Instagram for Business account, it’s a *super easy* process! Literally a few clicks and you’re done.

How to see if your instagram profile is for business
See the little bars at the top? That’s the place to click for analytics. And note the address appears too!

How to tell if your account is already set up as a business account:

If you see the little bar icons next to your name at the top, then you are already using a business account.

How to Convert to an Instagram for Business Profile:

You should get a pop-up notification when you log in to your account on your phone. If not, go to Settings (gear icon top right) and select “Switch to Business Profile“. *

Benefits of an Instagram Business Profile:

People will find your business more easily because your address appears (pulled from your Facebook page) and when clicked, opens up Google maps so potential customers can navigate right to you!

If you also connect an email and phone, people have the option of calling or emailing your business without ever leaving Instagram. Nifty, right?!

In addition, you’ll get some basic (but still helpful) insights, such as impressions, reach, and number of clicks to your website! Note that you need to view the insights from your phone or mobile device.

“But I Want More”

If you are looking for more in-depth Instagram analytics, then you might want to check out Iconosquare’s various premium offerings. We use Iconosquare’s pro and premium versions for several of our clients (ranges from $5 to $15 a month). We love the analytics as well as being able to communicate with  followers right from our desktop computer (which can be extremely helpful for speed’s sake). Note: We don’t get any type of fee for singing their praises – we just want to let you know about them if you are looking for a better tool for managing Instagram. 😉

*Still no luck? Maybe you have not updated to the latest version of Instagram so head over to your app store, do the update, then re-open and/or log back in to Instagram.

Social Media Mini Boot Camp 2014

I just returned from the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) Annual Meeting Meeting in Hollywood, Florida where I gave a power-packed talk on the 12 things you need to do in 2014 for social media success.

Now, my talk presumes you are ALREADY doing some social media and relationship marketing to increase your online visibility. If you have not yet taken a dip in the social media pool, I highly recommend you start. (And if you need help, you can always ask!)

Here is the slide deck I presented – so take a look, make some notes, and even download if you so choose. All of us here at Cosmetic Social Media are here to help you make the best possible online impression.

To see our other presentations, check out our SlideShare channel!
