StoryChief allows you to publish social posts directly to your Instagram account.

๐Ÿ”” Note: Make sure your Instagram account needs to be a Business account.

The Instagram page also needs to be linked to a Facebook page in the Meta Business Suite.

Switch to a Business account

You can switch to a Professional account via the mobile app by following these steps or follow this link:

  1. Open your Instagram app on your phone

  2. Tap on the upper right button and go to "Settings"

  3. Go to Account and tap "Switch to Professional Account" at the bottom

  4. Pick a category that best describes your business, then select "Business".

  5. Youโ€™re all set, youโ€™ve got an Instagram business account.

Now let's connect your Business account to StoryChief!

Start connecting your Instagram account

Step 1. Visit your Channels page by expanding the top-right menu and clicking on Integrations. ๐Ÿ‘‰ Quick link.

Step 2. Click on or scroll down to "Social networks". Choose Instagram.

Step 3. Click on "Add new destination".

Step 4. You will now be sent to Facebook to authorise the request by logging in to the personal Facebook account that is linked to the Instagram account.

On the next screen, select all available Instagram Business accounts (this is a requirement from Instagram so make sure you select all available accounts, also if you don't want to connect all of them to StoryChief). Click on "Next".

Step 5. Click on "Continue as (Name)" to be sent back to StoryChief.

Step 6. Finally, choose your Instagram page from the dropdown menu and click on "Save settings".

You can click again on "Add new destination" and repeat this process to add additional Instagram accounts to your StoryChief account.
