    Hi! First post here, and I got a question regarding naming your account.

    I have started a niche store, and I wonder if I should name my IG account the same as my store, or would it be wiser to build a IG account with a different name, say for example I sell car parts and my company name is Easy Car Parts or whatever, should I name my account that or something "unrelated" to my business and go generic like "cool cars" and build up a following first, posting pictures of cars and then advertise my business after a following?

    Obviously my niche isn't car parts, but it would be pretty much the same comparison :)

    Thanks!

    I would suggest using the same name as your store name.

    same name as your store hands down, that way you can build up a brand and get known more.
