The first step is to download the Instagram app on your cell phone and/or your iPad.

You can actually create and add up to 5 Instagram accounts to each device.

In the beginning however, I suggest that you just start with one and scale up from there.

After downloading the Instagram app from the Google Playstore and/or the Apple Store, the next step is to create your instagram account and verify it using either your phone number or email.

After signing up at Instagram, set up your profile. As you can see from mine above, it is best to start each line with an eMoji then a sentence. At Instagram you can have 5 lines and then a clickable link. I suggest that you utilize the 5th line for your call to action and use down arrows as I have.

If You already have a facebook Business Page You can also connect it with your Instagram page as Instagram is owned by Facebook. Facebook bought Instagram a few years ago for $1,000,000,000 Yes 1 Billion Dollars with a B!

Wonderful Marita,

Instagram is my Favorite site as far as Mainstream Social Media Sharing platforms my Friend.

I will be doing an Instagram 201 Class at about the beginning of 2018 if not sooner depending on how many Friends here let me know what questions they are having about Instagram once they implement what is taught here and get started.

Thank you for the wonderful compliment as well, inspiring Friends is always nice.

You are welcome Gus and thank you my Friend.

WA is absolutely the best place to buy your domain as the security and all of the extras that other places like GoDaddy, NameCheap etc.. charge extra for are included at WA.

Talk with you soon Gus,

Tony
