Setting up an Instagram account for your business

Have you noticed lately that the young 'uns are not on Facebook so often any more? It seems that the Facebook demographic has become older, and that younger people are now using Instagram a lot.

It is a good idea if you want your business to be noticed to have a Facebook page for your business and also an Instagram account.

Instagram is a little more tricky than Facebook to set up, as you can only really update it from your phone.

Linking your website to your Instagram account

Once you have set up your Instagram account and added some photos and comments you will need to link to your Instagram account from your website.

You can do this yourself by adding a link on your Contact page. (Click here for a reminder on how to log in and edit your page content.)

Here is an Instagram icon you can download and use if want to put it on your Contact page.

(to download and save the image right click on it. You will then need to upload it to the images folder on your own website to use it.)

We can also add an icon linking out to your Instagram account your template layout. This is something that we would need to do for you at a low cost.

Please contact us if you would like to set up this feature on your website.

One of our clients, Mukha Yoga, has their own Instagram account and they have got us to link to it from the template.
