New Instagram Feature for Business Accounts

In the midst of doing my usual social media thing yesterday, I stumbled across an Instagram account with a fresh new “Contact” button at the top of their profile.  Ooo… this is cool.  When I tapped on it, it gave me the option to Call or Email the business. Simple and straightforward.  I love it!

In addition to your new shiny contact button, switching over to a business account also gives you access to analytics.  So, you can see additional data about how well your Instagram post are performing by clicking on that little bar graph looking symbol not the top right of your profile page.  Nice, huh?

I hope this was helpful for you!  Let me know if you have any questions or need help making the switch in your account.
