How to Convert an Instagram Personal Account to a Business Account

Instagram offers three profile types: Personal, Business, and Creator. By default, all Instagram accounts are set to Personal. You have the option to switch your profile type at any moment.

To use all of WP Social Ninja’s Instagram features, your Business profile must be linked to a Facebook Page. This is a Facebook requirement (which owns Instagram).
