If you don’t have a business account, learn how to switch from a personal to a business account on Instagram.
If you have a business account, these are the steps to add location to your account:
If you go back to your business profile, you’ll notice that the location you entered is shown in the bio of your Instagram account. It will also be visible to all people who are your followers, as well as those you are not.
If you don’t have a business account, or you don’t want to switch from a personal to a business account, there is an alternative to put a location in your Instagram bio with a personal Instagram account.
You can simply write your location as a simple text in your Instagram bio. Many users put the location (city and state) after their bio. Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t allow you to put multiple paragraphs in your bio, and will delete any space you insert when you press the enter button to add a new line).
This way, your bio and the location will be in the same line, and may be difficult to read. One workaround for this is to use periods, emojis, or other symbols such as bullet points and brackets to leave an empty line between your bio and location so they are more clear to read.
People won’t be able to click on the location and find the direction using Google Maps or Apple apps, but at least they would know where your business is located.
But at least your followers will be familiar with your location, which will help you connect with consumers nearby.
