Later in the course, we are going to contemplate combining your Instagram promotion with email marketing which will contribute greatly to the development of your business and sales growth.
But we have put this off long enough. Let’s get down to business and create an Instagram account! The first lesson will provide you with a step-by-step guide to creating an Instagram account. We will start off by installing the application, and then we will pass over to registering and editing a business profile. Here we go!
CREATING AN ACCOUNT
At this very moment, Instagram is being used by over a billion people aka your prospective clients. Pick up your phone: this is the only instrument you will require throughout this lesson.
1. Install the Instagram app
First of all, you are going to need to install the Instagram application. If you have an Android device, download the application from Google Play. In the case of an Apple device, please find the application in the Apple Store and download it. Just type in ‘Instagram’ in the search box and choose the first app to appear. Click ‘Install’. That’s it! As soon as Instagram is downloaded, its brand name icon will appear on your screen.
2. Open the app and sign up.
To do this, use your phone number or email. Choose whichever suits you best and fill in the field to link your future account either to your email address or your phone number. If you forget your password, you will easily recover it by email or phone.
3.Think of a username and password
Type in your email in the new field and move on to the next step. You will be asked to create a username. Remember that username can be changed at all times so don’t linger here: we can always change your username while editing the account.
Besides, during the next few lessons you will find out how a username can be instrumental in a company’s business success.
For now, though, type in any word, but give special consideration to your password. It is always important. So type in, say, your full name and make up a password. Click ‘next’ and then work your magic — think of a name for your account.
Don’t be afraid to get creative and let your imagination run free! When you think of a name for your account, make sure it is not already used by any of the Instagram users. Click ‘Next’ and if the name is not taken, you will see a green check mark. If you see a red exclamation point, then the name is not available. Use your imagination and think of some other name.
4.Completing the account
As soon as your account gets a name, move on to the next step. Skip through Find Facebook Friends for now. Later, you can also connect your Instagram account to your phone’s contact list. We do not need that yet. We will discuss how to properly follow other users and build up your audience later. We will also skip for now the uploading of your profile photo. Simply skip through all these parameters and click ‘Done’.
THAT WAS THE FIRST STEP
Well done! You have created your first Instagram account in a few simple steps. Congratulations!
Click on a small gray profile picture where your photo will be set later, this is your own Instagram page. It can become your business or personal account —whatever you like. You can always create another account and link it to the main one we have just created.
Your name is at the top of the profile page. And that is basically all your account has for now. Its contents depend on you: you can share everything that happens to you on Instagram or leave it completely empty. But remember that the account is the first thing to attract people who assess you or your company on Instagram. If it can attract them, they will more willingly become your clients and customers.
