    So I just got back into IG after ~6 months off of it and just had a 2 quick questions. When growing, I was wondering if you grow faster when running a page listed as personal or business (with contact button). My account is currently very small @ only 2.5k followers. So I'm not sure if that would change whether or not I should go 'business' yet. I have yet to do so as I feel that would make my page come off as a sellout even though I would not post any ads and would only have the contact button for more of a 'professional' look. Please let me know either through your experience or personal opinion, both willbe of great help.

    Along the same lines, I have in my bio my kik.me personalized link, stating that anyone who needs to can message me if they need to for support or anything. Does that also look bad, or give it a more personalized feel? Thoughts?

    Just set it up to fit your niche best as possible. I've never seen any downside to a business account profile.

    I personally think the insights IG give you with a businesses profile are extremely good and would recommend using one if you're 50/50 about what looks better!

    Currently I am using Business because of the insights. They tell you so much, i.e. which days your followers are more active, and the peak hours. This can help you when posting for maximum amount of reach :)
