Connecting your Instagram account in Perch is easy. However, there are a couple of things that need to be in place before you can connect.
1. You must have a business profile on Instagram
To switch to a business profile using the Instagram app on your mobile phone, tap on Settings. Then tap Switch to Business Profile. When switching to a business profile, Instagram will prompt you to connect your Facebook page. Just follow the prompts.
2. Your Instagram profile must be connected to your Facebook page
If you already have a business profile on Instagram, make sure it's connected to your Facebook business page. On Android and iPhone, open Settings and then choose Account > Linked Accounts. Then select Facebook. You may have to enter the Facebook login information. By default, your Instagram account will link to your personal Facebook profile. To link to a page instead:
- on an Android phone: Choose a page that you manage below Share to.
- on the iPhone: Tap Share to and choose a Page that you manage.
If the above are in place, Perch automatically finds your Instagram page when you tap or click on Instagram in Inbox Accounts.
