  1. Hello Hello

    Ugh. I’ve been struggling with this currently! It’s like you were reading my mind. I need to order new biz cards and I feel like now is the time to decide. Can’t decide if I should have 2 accounts. I have a hard enough time posting regularly as it is, so the thought of managing two seems daunting. I don’t have kids, just dogs, so I don’t feel like I would fill my feed with too much personal stuff. The only real reason it bugs me using my personal account for business, is that on Facebook I have my business name, so I’m constantly wondering if it’s a disconnect to not have the same name on insta??

    Hey there! So glad this is helpful for you! You could always keep your personal name as your Instagram handle @_________, and then include your business name in that first spot in the bio. (The opposite of how we have @idealustlife and then Becky + Jesse Morquecho.) Hope this helps you make that decision!

    Thank you so much for this! This is the best post on this subject I’ve ever come across. It’s helped me decide to stay with one account. Thank you again!

    I love that you guys combined Instagrams (for the most part). And I so love your vulnerability always!

    Thanks for unpacking this! I wrestled with the same qurstion and chose to stick to a joint page for my design business and personal stuff and start a separate account for my non-profit…even still, that’s a lot to keep up with! Lol.

    Ha ha! I say, whatever works best for you and your business and life! Way to make a decision and keep on moving, Sara!

    This is great! My next predicament is if I should have my “business account” setup as a business or personal account on instagram. As of right now I’m not really selling anything but I have it setup as a business for insights. I’m hoping to develop and start selling my product in a year from now but right now I’m just trying to get a following. Have you found any downside to having it a business account

    Thanks, Chelsea! We held off on making our business account a BUSINESS ACCOUNT, but recently made the switch. So far, so good! I haven’t experienced any downsides and I’m liking all the positives that come with having the insights right there in the app!
