    Connecting Your Instagram

    Follow

    We are excited to announce that Instagram is now available to connect inside of Thryv! 

    There are a few additional steps you may (or may not) have to take to connect. The first one is to ensure you have an Instagram Business account. The second is ensuring your Instagram Business Account is connected to your Facebook Business Page.

    Here are the steps needed to complete the change over from a personal Instagram account to a Business Instagram account (Note: You will not lose any photos or other content making the switch, but keep in mind that Business Profiles cannot be private.)

    Convert to a Business Profile:

    1. Go to your Instagram profile on your mobile device and tap  (iPhone) or  (Android) in the top-right corner.
    2. Tap Sign up for a Business Profile
    3. Tap Create New Account or Convert Existing Account.
    4. Make sure your profile is set to Public. Private accounts can't switch to Business Accounts.
    5. On the Set Up Your Business Profile page, review your business's contact information, make any changes and tap Done.

    Video on how to follow these steps can be found here.

    If you use a business account on Instagram, you'll get access to new business features and Instagram insights. Thryv will also be able to track analytics on your number of recent comments and followers.

    Connecting your Instagram Business Account to your Facebook Business Page:

    It's important that you are the Admin on your Facebook Business Page before you attempt to connect your Instagram Business account, but you can do this easily from within the Instagram App.

    To link your Instagram account to a Facebook Page:

    Android

    1. Go to your Instagram Business profile and tap .
    2. TapSettings.
    3. Scroll down and tap Linked Accounts, then select Facebook.
    4. If you haven't already, enter your Facebook login information.
    5. By default, your Instagram account will link to your personal Facebook Timeline. To link to a Page instead, tap Facebook again and choose a Page that you manage below Share to.

    iPhone

    1. Go to your Instagram Business profile and tap .
    2. TapSettings.
    3. Scroll down and tap Linked Accounts, then select Facebook.
    4. If you haven't already, enter your Facebook login information.
    5. By default, your Instagram account will link to your personal Facebook Timeline. To link to a Page instead, tap Facebook again, then tap Share to and choose a Page that you manage.

     

    Connecting your Instagram Business Account to Thryv:

    Once you have completed the steps above, you can connect your Instagram Business account to Thryv.

    From the Social Content tab, select "Connect Network" under the Instagram icon:

    A new window will populate, asking you to log into Facebook. Click "Log In Using Facebook".

    Select your Instagram Business Account from the screen.

    Thryv will communicate with Instagram and connect; you'll know it was a successful connection because the Instagram icon will change from gray to color! (Note: It may take up to 1 minute for the connection to complete.)
