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 stylists, implementing the integration is far from seamless. If you’ve had difficulty adding the Instagram Book Now button to your profile, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
Upgrade to a Business Account
As a stylist, you likely already have an Instagram business account. If you don’t, start there. This level of Instagram 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 video here to get up and running.
