I don’t want to upgrade to an Instagram Professional account. What does this mean for me?
In order to connect Instagram as a channel on your inzpire.me profile, you’ll have to upgrade to a Instagram Professional account. However, you’ll still be able to connect other channels like Youtube, Snapchat, and Twitter if you still don’t want to upgrade.
My Instagram Professional account failed to connect. Why?
The most common reason why Instagram fails to connect is because not all permissions were granted during the process. Try connecting again, and be sure that all 4 permissions are checked!
What do the Facebook permissions mean and why do I need to grant them?
To successfully connect your Instagram account to your inzpire.me profile, you'll need to grant all 4 Facebook permissions:
Manage your business
Access profile and posts from the Instagram account connected to your Page
Access insights for the Instagram account connected to your Page
Read content posted on the Page
We need these 4 permissions to do the following on your inzpire.me profile:
Share your latest Instagram posts and stories, so brands can easily see your amazing content.
Share basic profile information, such as follower count and engagement rate.
Share your Instagram audience demographics and Instagram post and story performance, for both you and brands to see how your channel is performing.
Automatically upload the Instagram content and results you’ve published for your inzpire.me bookings to Deliverables, to avoid doing this manually.
Note: inzpire.me won't be able to publish posts, comment, or do anything else on your behalf on your Instagram profile or Facebook page. Facebook has reviewed and approved inzpire.me’s access to these permissions.
I have an Instagram Professional account, but it doesn't appear as an option when I try to connect it to inzpire.me.
If you don't see your Instagram account as an option, check whether your Instagram account is connected to your Facebook page. To do this:
Go to your Instagram profile.
Tap on Edit Profile.
Under Public Business Information, select Page. Check that the correct Facebook Page is connected to your Instagram account.
If it's not, choose a Page from your Pages that you'd like to connect, or select Create a New Facebook Page.
Click Done once you've selected a Page or added a new Page.
Will creating a Business account affect my reach?
No. Instagram has proven that this is a myth as your reach is determined by factors that aren’t affected when creating a business account. To read more about this, head to Table of Contents 6 in this article.
