Thank you for checking out Freegram guides!
Since you've made it to the end, we have a small bonus for you!
STEP 1. Get your phone ready!

Instagram is a mobile first platform. Over the years it has come a long way with its web app but in order to verify the account via phone in order to make it as safe and hack-proof as possible we will be registering the account using a mobile phone.

Download the app for free and register an account. Make sure you verify your account via SMS (see why the phone was handy) to secure it.

Pro-tip: making sure your Instagram username matches your Facebook and Twitter usernames makes it easier for your followers to find you on other platforms.
STEP 2: Profile set up

Once you are registered you will be met with your profile page. Tap on the gear icon to get into the settings menu and follow our next steps!

Setting up a basic account is easy, but if you really want to stand out on Instagram and make the most out of your account then make sure you follow these next tips:

  1. Make sure your profile is public - go into settings - Account privacy and use the slider to turn private account off. You need a public profile in order to take advantage of hashtags and have users seeing your content every time you post.
  2. Pick a searchable @username. This means that if your business is called "Freegram" make sure your profile username matches this so when users search for Freegram they can find you.
  3. Check the rest of the settings menu and configure to your taste. We recommend allowing comments, and sharing of your pictures and stories to increase the reach of your posts.
STEP 3. Profile pic & bio


The perfect picture for an instagram profile is a perfect square. For reference, keep in mind the minimum profile picture size for Instagram is 110 x 110 pixels.

To add or change your profile picture: Go to your profile and click the "Edit Profile" button - Then, tap "Edit" in the top right. (This will appear under your current profile photo if you have one.)

Your bio is a space for you to tell users what your profile is about. Keep it simple, use hashtags and include a link to your website.

Here are some examples of good bios.
