How to set up your practice's Instagram profile page

Instagram is an incredible platform that has revolutionized how businesses interact with customers and share content. With the growth of social media, having a business page on Instagram is now essential for any company looking to grow and succeed.

Here are the general steps to create an Instagram profile page:

  1. Download the Instagram app from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android).

  2. Open the app and tap on "Sign up" to create a new account.

  3. Enter your email address or phone number, or sign up with your Facebook account.

    • Note: Be sure that the contact information all belongs to the practice or practice owner, vs. an individual employee.

  4. Choose a username and password for your account.

    • Note: Save this information in a secure location that can be accessed by the practice owner.

  5. Fill out your profile information, including your name and a brief bio.

  6. Add a profile picture that represents your brand, business or personal self.

  7. Connect your Instagram account to other social media accounts, such as Facebook or Twitter, if desired.

  8. Start posting photos and videos, and engaging with your audience by liking and commenting on other users' posts.

You can also access Instagram via browser, and it would be the same process of creating an account. You can also create a Professional account if you represent a brand or business and have access to extra features such as contact buttons, insights, or shoppable posts.

Also, keep in mind that you must be at least 13 years old to create an Instagram account and that it's important to always follow Instagram's terms of use and community guidelines, in order to keep your account in good standing.
