Since the long-awaited feature for Instagram is becoming available in more and more countries, let’s do a quick recap of what we already know, and explore what we can do in Instagram for business.

Naturally, some part we already covered in our previous articles on the subject here and here.

  • It will help your customers connect with your business
  • You’ll be able to include additional information (phone number, e-mail and physical adress)

  • You’ll get access to Instagram Insights (post performance, follower demographics and behavior)

  • You’ll receive access to Instagram Insights. Instagram Insights provide information on who your followers are,
    when they’re online and more.

    engaging with them. Learn more about the insights available.
  • Business Profiles include a Contact button near the top of their profile. You’ll have the option to include directions,
