Step 1: Connect Your Facebook Page To Your Instagram Account

First, you will need to connect your Instagram account and Facebook Page to each other from either your Instagram settings or your Facebook Page settings. This will ensure that when you post a promoted ad, you will be able to use Facebook's branded content tool and that your Page name will be clickable. If you also need to allow promoted access to your Instagram, this will be a necessary step. The following articles will help you with how to connect your Instagram and Facebook Page together:

2. Locate your Facebook Page Connection and click View Details > Promoted Posts > Request Access.

 

 

3. From this point, you will be provided with instructions to follow for granting access within your Facebook account. For more detailed steps on this process, please continue reading below. 

 

 

Step 3: Grant Access From Facebook

1. On a desktop browser, navigate to facebook.com and log in as the Page Owner for the Facebook Page you have connected to the system. From there, on the left hand navigation bar, click Pages > select your Page > click Settings > and then click Page Roles.

 

 

2. From within your Page Roles section, locate the Pending Partner Request from IZEA, Inc. on the right and click Respond to Request. From the pop-up that appears, click Continue > click Accept Request > and lastly, enter your Facebook password and then click Submit. After your page refreshes, you will see that IZEA, Inc. has been granted access to your Page.

 


 

Please note: It can take up to an hour for Promoted Posts access to show as complete from your account in the system after finishing these steps on Facebook.

3. Once the process has completed, you will see a message that states You're All Set.
