Use Stunning Photos to Boost Your Business
If you already have an Instagram account that’s filled with visually-rich, engaging images then this integration will have the most impact for you. Do you run a salon, a bake shop, a dance studio, or give personal training lessons? Look for opportunities to take interesting photos and post them online, directly from your phone. Look up competing businesses in your industry to see what they’re doing, and look for examples that inspire you.
Use the Instagram integration for Setmore if any of the following apply to you:
- You use Instagram to interact with customers or followers online.
- You regularly take high-quality or interesting photos related to your work.
- You want to get more likes on your Instagram photos, while giving customers the opportunity to schedule an appointment with you online.
Filter Photos on Your Booking Page by Hashtag
Once the integration is activated, you can choose a hashtag and Setmore will only stream photos from your Instagram account with the specified hashtag. This can be useful if you want to highlight some professional photos that are originally sourced from your personal Instagram page, or if you want to narrow down which photos get streamed by a sub-category (such as “haircuts,” for a salon that does both haircuts and hair color).

Frequently Asked Questions
When I click “Activate” in the Instagram sub-menu, the window closes abruptly and doesn’t show that the integration was activated.
Make sure that you are logged out of Instagram in your web browser prior to activating the integration. You may do this by opening your Instagram page in your web browser, then click the gear icon next to your username and select “Log Out.” Setmore needs a fresh Instagram login from within the app in order for the permissions to be shared correctly. If all else fails, try activating the integration in a separate web browser.
