Updated: Feb 10
To create a WYSPR account you must first ensure you have an Instagram business account associated with a Facebook page.
If you’re are unsure of how to do this, fear not, for we've got you covered. This article will walk you through the necessary steps to successfully switch your Instagram account to a business account and then how to connect a Facebook page to your new business account - all in just a few seconds!
The detailed steps
How do I switch to an Instagram business account?
Open the Instagram app
Navigate to the ‘Menu’ from your profile page
Choose ‘Settings’ and then ‘Account’
Click on ‘Switch to a professional account’
Progress through the screens until you’re presented with a choice between Creator & Business
If you already have a Professional Creator account, just follow the first two steps and click on ‘Change account type’ and then choose to ‘Switch to a business account’.
Connecting a Facebook page
After choosing ‘Business’ as your creator type you’ll next be presented with a screen that prompts you to connect your Facebook account
Choose ‘Log in to Facebook’ and enter your credentials
With that done you will now be presented with the ‘Connect your Facebook Page’ screen
You now have two options:
Create a Facebook page
If you choose "Create a Facebook page". Instagram automatically creates one for you and will give it the same name as your Instagram account.
Or, if you already have a Facebook page
Connect an existing page
When you choose this option, you can select the page from a list. Once the page is selected, press Next.
Whichever option you choose once this step is complete the remaining screens and press Finish.
Congratulations, you now have an Instagram Business account connected to a Facebook page!
