By converting your personal Instagram account into a business-type account, in fact, not only will you be able to see some useful statistics regarding the profile - number of views, amount of interactions with the videos and photos you post, number of comments and likes left by followers , etc. -, but you can even sponsor certain posts and indicate an e-mail address to be contacted by your customers or potential advertising investors.
