How do I know if my Instagram is a Business Account or Personal Account?

Before you can start sharing your KCM content directly to Instagram, you'll need an Instagram Business Account. Not sure if yours is Business or Personal? Here's how to find out:


From your phone or mobile device, open and log into your Instagram application. If you do not see a button for the Professional Dashboard on your Profile, you have a Personal account and you'll have to switch your page to a Business Account. 

  • Once in your Profile tap the three lines in the upper right-hand corner,


  • From here scroll to the section labeled "For Professionals" and tap "Account Types and tools"

  • Then select "Switch to professional account"

If you see the Professional Dashboard on your Profile you already have a Business or Creator account.  In order to use Automation with KCM you'll have to have an Instagram Business Account.

  • To check if you have a Business or Creator page you'll tap the Professional Dashboard in your Profile,

  • On the next screen, you'll select "Switch Account Type". If you already have a Business account you'll see the option to switch to a personal page or switch to a creator page and you won't have to make any changes. However, if you have a Creator page you'll see the "Switch to Professional Account" option.
