With over 200 million people visiting Instagram daily, adding the Instagram Book button to your profile is a no-brainer for stylists. Attaching a clear call to action to your page is an easy way to convert your Instagram visitors into paying customers. But for many beauty and grooming professionals, implementing the integration onto your Instagram account is far from seamless. If you’ve had difficulty adding the Instagram Book Now button to your Instagram profile, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
Upgrade Your Instagram to a Business Account
As a stylist, you likely already have an Instagram business account. If you don’t, start there. Instagram business profile gives you insight into your followers, lets you add a link to your bio, and most importantly, allows you to add action buttons like the coveted Book Now. Making the switch to a biz account is as easy as clicking Edit Profile, then selecting Switch to a Professional Account. For step-by-step instructions, check out Instagram’s how-to article to get up and running.
