How to create an Instagram profile from PC
You don’t necessarily need a smartphone to create an Instagram profile , but you can also do it from desktop.
The steps are very similar to the previous ones:
- Click on https://www.instagram.com/accounts/emailsignup/ or go to instagram.com and click on Subscribe (the first link leads to this page).
- Enter all the required data such as e-mail, name and surname (or the name you want to show on Instagram), username and password
- Click on Next and continue the procedure until the creation of the profile
If you want to be contacted by potential customers , then I recommend that you register with an e- address company mail or that you use for this purpose.
If you are not interested in showing the button to receive e-mail on your Instagram profile, then you can also use your personal e-mail .
Once you have created your Instagram profile you can log in either by entering your e-mail address and username .
In addition the e-mail address will also be used in case of loss of the password or for important communications from Instagram .
As for the username , however, I recommend that you use a username that is the same or similar to your other existing social profiles.
In case you want to create an Instagram profile dedicated to your brand or your shop , and you have already created a Facebook page , I recommend that you choose a username that is the same or similar to that of your Facebook page.
If you want to work on your personal brand , then your first and last name is more than enough.
Well, we’ve seen how creating an Instagram profile is very simple to do: the hard part comes later.
But let’s take it one step at a time.
Now that you have created your Instagram profile you just have to choose and add a profile photo (it can be a logo or a photo of you), add a short biography and create your first content (perhaps doing a careful analysis of the hashtags to use).
You can also transform your profile into a company profile, which will allow you to analyze all the statistics: such as the best days and times to publish, the content that has obtained the most engagement and other very interesting metrics for growth of your profile .
In any case, I recommend that you take a look at the Instagram section of my blog where you will find numerous useful guides.
