Be seen, be known, have a voice..
Instagram has recently released the ability to request verification for your page. Whether you have a business account, personal account, or you’re an influencer you can now request to have that pretty little checkmark by your name! As it used to be, you’d have to wait until Instagram, someway – somehow, decided to verify your page.
Now, you can simply request that checkmark. That doesn’t mean we’ll all be verified, though. Note that this process is intended to verify accounts for a “notable public figure, celebrity, global brand or entity it represents.”
While there’s value to all of us in getting Instagram verified, those with the most followers and greatest reach do have the most to lose, so we can expect there to be some (unspecified) threshold of followers or reach required to be accepted. The rest of us should just keep on building our followers and reach until we qualify as well!
That said, there is no harm in applying – and a lot you could gain if you’re approved.
To request a verified badge:
- Make sure you’re logged in to the account you’re requesting a verified badge for.
- Go to your profile and tap.
- TapSettings > Request Verification.
- Enter your full name and provide the required form of identification (example: government issued photo ID).
So, how do you apply? Simply follow these directions below and wait for 30 days! If you are not approved within 30 days instagram will notify you. At this time it would be a good opportunity to continue working on growing your page and reach and then once you feel you’ve made an impact apply for the verification again!
