How to convert Instagram personal profile to a business account
How do I convert my personal Instagram profile to a business profile?

Using Instagram business account is very convenient and saves time. With Instagram business account you can directly publish and schedule your posts (Single image or Single Video posts only) without push notification reminders to your mobile device. Essentially, scheduling a post to Instagram business profile is the same as scheduling it to a Facebook page.

P.S. Instagram Creator accounts are not yet allowed to publish all types of posts without the use of push notification - Instagram API limitation

To do so, you will need to convert your personal Instagram profile to a business/professional account.

Facebook provided easy steps to follow. To convert now, please click here.

On Instagram, you can convert your personal profile to a business account to access features that can help you grow your business.

To switch your profile to a business account:

Go to your profile and tap the gear icon in the upper right corner.
Tap Settings.
Tap Account.
Tap Switch to Professional Account.
Tap/Select Business.
Before you can add the Instagram Business account to eclincher, it is required that you connect this to a Facebook page that your Facebook account currently has admin or editor rights to.
Add details, like your business category and contact information.
Tap Done.



Once you are done with converting your personal profile to a business account in Instagram, you will need to come back to the eclincher desktop app, go to "add and manage accounts", and add the converted account via the "Instagram professional" icon, and not via the "Instagram profile (user)" icon. Please note, your previous profile will still appear in the list of accounts as (User) and you may either disable it or completely delete it here in the eclincher app.
