How to Link Instagram with Facebook

First thing's very first: let's walk through How To Link Instagram With Facebook. You'll need to do this because Instagram ads are taken care of through the Facebook ad system (not a surprise since Facebook owns Instagram).

How To Link Instagram With Facebook

There are two means to do this, and also we'll show you both.

If you have a Business Manager account, comply with these actions to obtain Instagram configuration on your account:

First, login to your Business Manager account and also hover over the Business Settings tab. Select Instagram Accounts.

Next off, click Claim New Instagram Account as well as enter your username and password for Instagram.

Finally, choose the ad account you intend to connect to your Instagram account. That's it-- you're done!

If you don't have a Business Manager account, you'll follow a slightly different set of steps.

Initially, go to the Facebook page that represents the Instagram account you wish to include as well as choose Settings in the leading right edge.

Next, pick Instagram Ads from the Settings sidebar. You'll after that be prompted to add an Instagram account to the page.

Enter your username and password for the Instagram account when motivated, as well as you're good to go.

Running Instagram ads without an Instagram account

If you do not have an Instagram account, you are still able to run Instagram advertisements without connecting an account by just picking Instagram as your placement alternative (we'll cover this in the next section).

However, we do not recommend running Instagram ads without an Instagram account. When you run Instagram advertisements, you're most likely to grab some followers on Instagram even if your post is mosting likely to remain in peoples' feed. If you run Instagram ads without an Instagram account, you'll be leaving these fans on the table. It does not make sense to not make use of an account when developing one takes less than a min.
