How do I connect my Instagram page?

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 ProfileWhen 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.
