Post Direct to Instagram Without a Mobile Devise

Until recently, Instagram has only allowed users to post using a mobile devise. Now, users can post direct to Instagram using SMclicks.

#1 Convert Your Personal Instagram Account to a Business Account

Under account settings, scroll down to Settings / Linked Accounts and connect your Instagram account to your Facebook account with the Facebook page you would like associated with Instagram.

Now, scroll up and click "Switch to Business Profile." You may be asked to log into Facebook. Then you will be asked to select which Facebook business page you want to connect.

Then, you will be ask which contact information you want to pull from your Facebook business page.

Once your personal account is converted to a business account, you may want to convert your username and profile to represent your company, rather than you personally.

Posting to Instagram with SMclicks

Now that SMclicks is connected to your Instagram Business Profile, you can post to Instagram like any other profile.

When posting, you will see that there is now a tab labeled "Customize for Instagram (optional)," which allows you to format a custom Instagram post. This is especially important, since Instagram does not permit clickable links in the caption or comment section of your post.
