How do I connect Instagram Business Account with SocialPilot?
When you connect your Instagram business account with SocialPilot, you get access to multiple insights and analytics such as reach, impressions, demographics, and other salient metrics, that help monitor your Instagram campaign.
In this guide, we will learn how to connect your Instagram business account with SocialPilot.
Before you start, make sure that:
Your Instagram business account is connected to a Facebook page. If not, learn more about how to link accounts here.
You have an admin role on the Facebook page to which you want your Instagram business account to be connected. Check your role status by going on the associated Facebook page, then click on Settings > Page Roles.
Make sure that the correct Facebook page is connected to your Instagram business account. To check this, go to your Facebook account and switch to the relevant business page you want. Once you are on the page, go to the profile page by clicking on your profile picture. When the profile page opens up, select the "Manage" button which will take you to the Professional dashboard. Once there, find "Linked Accounts" on the left menu bar and click on it. Now you will be able to see the Instagram pages connected to this Facebook page.
After checking these 3 prerequisites, you can move on to the step-by-step guide of connecting your Instagram business account with SocialPilot.
Log into your SocialPilot account.
Click on Accounts > Connect Account from the sidebar menu. Now you will see a tile view of multiple social media platforms that you can connect with SocialPilot. Scroll down to Instagram. Here you will see two options for connecting your Instagram account.
- Connect Personal: By clicking on this option you can connect any type of Instagram account, personal or business, without going through any authentication. Connection through this option only allows you to receive a reminder from SocialPilot to post on Instagram at a scheduled time.
- Connect Business: Click on this option to connect only your Instagram business account with SocialPilot. Connection through this option allows you to not only get a reminder for a scheduled post but also the analytics of your Instagram account.
So click on the “ Connect Business” button.
You will be directed to a Facebook login page. Enter your asked credentials here.
Now you will be redirected to the Connect profile page on SocialPilot to choose the Instagram business accounts you want to connect. Here you will find 2 different sections:
Select Profile: In this section, you will see all the Instagram business profiles associated with your chosen Facebook account. Here you can choose a single or multiple Instagram account to connect with SocialPilot.
Add to Groups: This section will show you the list of all the groups you have created in your SocialPilot account. Here you can select any group in which you want to add your above-chosen Instagram business account.
In the top right corner, click on the “ Connect Account” button.
In case you have unauthenticated Instagram business profiles already connected to your SocialPilot account (through the ‘Connect Personal’ button), SocialPilot will automatically find the duplicates when you try to connect them via the ‘Connect Business’ button.
As soon as you click on Connect Account, your selected accounts will get connected with SocialPilot, and you will redirect to the Manage Account page where you can set up a schedule at the account level. Please refer to the screenshot given below:
