If you are ready to level up managing and analyzing your clients’ accounts but haven’t known how to get started, you’ve found the right resource. In this article, you’ll learn how to connect clients’ accounts.
Before we explain how to link your client’s account to IQ Hashtags, make sure it meets the following requirements:
- Instagram account switched to business or creator account – How to switch to a business/creator account.
- Instagram account linked to a Facebook business page. The authorization won’t work if an Instagram account is linked to a personal Facebook profile – How to link your Instagram account to a Facebook page.
- You need Facebook Access to the page with full or partial control in order to grant necessary permissions for the authorization to be completed – Learn more about the page access – Classic pages & New pages
- Logged into the Facebook account connected to the Instagram account you’re linking to IQ Hashtags.
💡Important: All linked Instagram accounts must be linked through Facebook pages you have access to.
Why? We access Instagram accounts through Facebook profiles, their admin permissions, and admin rights to specific Facebook Pages. This means all Instagram accounts you want to link will need to be connected to Facebook Pages on which you are an admin.
Double-check your client’s Instagram account is a business or creator account.
🧩 This is a crucial step, as you won’t be able to link a personal Instagram account to IQ Hashtags.
To check if your client’s Instagram is a business or creator account, you can check the Instagram settings from a mobile view.
Right here, you should see an option to Switch account type:
