First of all it is important to know what Instagram is, if you don’t know already.
Instagram launched in October 2010, and created an app that would give users the ability to take a photo, apply a digital filter to it, and share it on a variety of social networks. Then in April 2012 Facebook made their biggest acquisition yet to purchase Instagram for 1 billion dollars! If Facebook sees the value in it for their business so should you for your business. With the 50 million plus users on Instagram you will be sure to find your target audience. With that said lets get your Instagram Business Profile launched!

Step 2 – Make Sure you have Facebook Pages installed for Mobile as well as Twitter for Mobile
Optional Tip: Use the same handle, that you use for Twitter on your Instagram, it makes posting flow smother
Step 3 – (This is where it gets tricky) Next you will want to sign out of your personal Facebook and login with your new Facebook Page profile.
