Instagram only allows you to run sweepstakes on business accounts. So if you have a personal profile, you will have to convert it into a Business one.
In this tutorial, we show you how you can change your personal profile into a business one, add business profiles to your Facebook account and what are the utilities of this functionality.
2. Step by step.
2.1. Is my Instagram profile personal or business?
Finding out if your company profile is personal or business is very easy. You just have to open the Instagram application, login with your profile, and access to your account settings (you will find it by clicking on the right, at the bottom you will see the "Settings" option).
If your account is personal, in the 'Account' section, you will see the option 'Switch to professional account'.
If you already have a business account, the option 'Switch to personal account' will appear.
2.2. Change from personal account to business account.
Please note that your account must be public in order to create a business profile on Instagram. In addition, you must be able to associate it with a Facebook page. Follow these steps:
1) Go back to settings. Click on 'Switch to professional account'.
2) Add or change the data to set up your company profile.
3) Select the Facebook fanpage you want to associate with your profile.
