How to Get the “Contact” Button on Instagram

pin button

I’m a firm believe that knowledge is power. I’m not one of those bloggers that keeps all of the hidden tricks of tips of social media and site building to myself. I don’t see the point. I want to see everyone succeed and be the best they can be so competing isn’t my thang. We all have room to be great! So I’m sharing my newest little tidbit with you…

When I first noticed the newly added “Contact” button on select bloggers’ Instagram profiles, my heart jumped. FINALLY! Something that causes users to become more engaged and have literally everything they need at their fingertips. Instagram rolled it out quietly, but I wanted to know how to get the update ASAP.

There are so many perks including being able to add a phone number, email or locations so customers can reach you directly through the “Contact” button, insights about your followers and how your posts are performing, and even help with creating promotions or ads to build your business or blog. 

I’m happy to say, it’s now available to everyone! I converted to Instagram for Business this morning and it took legit maybe five minutes.

STEP FOUR

The only catch is that you have to have a business Facebook page to link to. I didn’t have one for my blog, but created one real quick.

STEP FIVE

Insert whatever info you feel is relevant. I only added my blog’s email address, but you can add a location and phone number too. This is great for legit store fronts or restaurants.

DONE!

Look how sexy that “Contact” button is! It makes my IG page so clean and I was able to remove my email from the description. Bless!

So there you have it! Converting to a Instagram for Business is THAT easy and has so many perks. Enjoy!

And remember, knowledge really is power. All of us are in a world full of opportunity and growth. Helping others along the way is the right thing to do 🙂

Art for a Cause

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a shopaholic. Shocker! There’s something about buying new clothes or home decor that soothes my soul. But being able to do one of my favorite things all while knowing I’m giving back and supporting a worthy cause makes it all worthwhile.

I recently finally got my home office + closet together (we’ve been in our home almost a year….so kind of embarrassing. Better late than never right?!) which included a major shopping trip. I knew the look I was going for, but needed the perfect wall art for my gallery. I found a few great pieces on Etsy, which I recommend because they are smaller businesses and then came across an adorable print and one-of-a-kind shop and with an excellent mission.

Wunderkid is a shop whose focus is discovering young talented artists to sell their original art which will raise money towards these artists’ school funds.

We believe that creativity is a vital part of our
culture. We empower young artists and provide
a platform for them to create beautiful art while
simultaneously allowing them to meaningfully pursue
a career in the arts. With each sale, we contribute
into a tuition fund for the artist.

Not only supporting this shop was worthwhile, but finding this donut print gave me life! Just like any basic betch, donuts make me happy and knowing this is unique made it even better. Wunderkid offers a variety of products from prints in every size to greeting cards and they also have art to accommodate just about anyone’s taste.

Cheesy to say, but every time I look at this piece, I smile knowing I am helping make a young person’s dreams come true. I’m 23 and still dreaming of all I want to do in this thing called life and having support of those around me is essential. I wouldn’t be here without loyal readers. I get it. I wanted to share some of the love I receive every day.

Here are a few of their other gorgeous pieces:

They even make for great gifts. I assure you, you won’t have buyers remorse 😉
