How to Link My Instagram to Facebook

First thing's first: let's walk through How To Link My Instagram To Facebook. You'll need to do this since Instagram advertisements are managed with the Facebook ad platform (not a surprise because Facebook possesses Instagram).

How To Link My Instagram To Facebook

There are 2 ways to do this, and we'll show you both.

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

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

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

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

If you do not have a Business Manager account, you'll adhere to a somewhat different collection of actions.

First, go to the Facebook page that corresponds to the Instagram account you wish to include and choose Settings in the leading right corner.

Next off, select Instagram Ads from the Setups sidebar. You'll after that be motivated to add an Instagram account to the page.

Enter your username and password for the Instagram account when prompted, and you ready to go.

Running Instagram ads without an Instagram account

If you don't have an Instagram account, you are still able to run Instagram ads without attaching an account by just choosing Instagram as your positioning choice (we'll cover this in the following section).

Nonetheless, we do not recommend running Instagram advertisements without an Instagram account. When you run Instagram advertisements, you're likely to get some fans on Instagram even if your message is going 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 producing one takes less than a minute.
