Instagram has two types of accounts – personal and professional (creator and business).

👉 Important: Only professional accounts can be connected to ZoomSphere.

So, to connect an Instagram account to ZoomSphere, it's necessary to switch to a Professional Account.

You can set this up directly in the native Instagram mobile app or the desktop version.

👉 Go to your Instagram account and click on the menu Settings and privacy Account type and tools Switch to professional account.

Then choose Set as Business or Creator Account Switch → Done

Once you have chosen Professional Account, you will be taken through a little tour introducing the account options and possibilities.

Select a Category of your business area and hit the button Done.
That's it! 😉
