StoryChief allows you to publish social posts directly to your Instagram account. Note that your Instagram account needs to be a Professional account.
You can switch to a Professional account via the mobile app by following these steps or follow this link:
Open your Instagram app on your phone
Tap on the upper right button and go to Settings
Go to Account and tap Switch to Professional Account at the bottom
Pick a category that best describes your business, then select Business.
You’re all set, you’ve got an Instagram business account.
Now let's connect your Professional account to StoryChief:
Step 1. Visit your Channels page by expanding the top-right menu.
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. Make sure that you sign in with the correct Facebook profile.
Step 5. 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.
🔔 Note: This connection allows or disallows StoryChief to connect with the Instagram accounts. This is across all workspaces so we strongly recommend to always select all pages. You can still connect the right accounts to StoryChief at a later stage.
Step 6. As on the previous step, please select all available Facebook pages and click on Next.
🔔 Note: This connection allows or disallows StoryChief to connect with certain pages. This is across all workspaces so we strongly recommend to always select all pages. You can still connect the right accounts to StoryChief at a later stage.
Step 7. On the next screen, please select all options. StoryChief requires all options to be enabled in order to connect the Instagram account. Click on Done.
Step 8. Click on OK to be sent back to StoryChief.
Step 9. 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.
