Creating an appealing Instagram account

  • First, you have to download the Instagram app from the Goole Play Store or the App Store to see the contents on Instagram’s website. However, you will need an app to upload it as you cannot do it merely via your desktop.
  • Next, you have to set up your Instagram account. You will find two choices for this when you open the app. These are ‘Sign up with Phone or Email’ and ‘Log In With Facebook.’ If you are creating a business account, make sure that you sign up with your business email account to prevent your profile from being linked to your personal Facebook account.
  • You will have to enter your account details now such as your full name or name of your business so that your profile is recognizable to the visitors. This name will be displayed on your profile, but it is not the username of your account.
  • Pick up a unique username next and make sure that it is easy to find and recognizable. If you see that name is already taken you may try another but make sure you keep the first part of your name in the username. Moreover, once you create the account, you can always update the username later in the account settings. Therefore, do not worry about the username too much, as you can change it in the future.
