There are two ways to publish to Instagram: automatic or manual.

1. First let’s describe the two methods👇

Method 1 🚀 Auto-Publishing: your post is published automatically to Instagram. It means that you can schedule all your posts in advance, and they will be published without any action from you. We recommend using this method.

Important to know:
Automatic publishing works only for Instagram Business Profiles linked to a Facebook page. We talk in this section about finding which Instagram profile you have and how to connect it to a Facebook page.
You can publish up to 10 images or videos with this method.

Method 2 📲 Manual publishing: you receive a push notification on your mobile when it’s time to publish. When you open the notification, the Levuro app will open the post that needs to be published. You’ll just have to press a button to open the Instagram app and create the post. You will have to copy the caption’s text and insert the media.

Important to know:
You need to install the Levuro mobile app.
It works for all types of Instagram profiles: business, personal or creator.

2. What type of Instagram Profile do you have? (Business, Personal or Creator)

Follow these steps to know what is your Instagram Profile type:

From Instagram:
Sign in to Instagram with the profile you want to connect to Levuro: https://www.instagram.com/
In the top right corner, click on your image profile and Settings.

Scroll down, and you will see written in blue “Switch to Personal Account” or “Switch to Business Account”. In our case, it’s “Switch to Personal Account” which means that we have a Business account.

If you have a Private or Creator Profile, we recommend that you switch to a Business account.

From Levuro:
Connect your Instagram Profile to Levuro. You can learn how in this article.
Once your profile is connected, go to Settings in the top right corner.
On the right menu, click Workspace and Social profiles.
You will see a list of all of your connected profiles. Find your Instagram profile, underneath the type of profile is displayed. We have one Instagram Private and three Instagram Business in the example below.


Now you should know which kind of Instagram Profile you have. Let’s find out how to connect it to a Facebook page (necessary for automatic publishing of your posts).

3. How to connect your Instagram Profile to a Facebook page?

You will need:
An Instagram Business profile
A Facebook page

Sign in to your Facebok page and to the Instagram Profile you want to connect.
In Facebok, go to the Settings of your page.
In the menu of the page settings, find Instagram

You will see the name and information of your connected Instagram account at the end of the process.
