Luckily, anyone can change their profile from personal to business.

  • Go to your profile and tap the settings menu icon (three horizontal lines) in the upper right corner.
  • Faucet Settings Later Bill
  • Then swipe down to tap Change account type

From there, follow the instructions to finish setting up your Instagram Business account. (For a full review, you can find our guide to changing your profile here.)

If you’re getting the message that you don’t have permission to boost an Instagram Reel, the problem may be over with Facebook.

As you’ve probably discovered when creating your business profile, every business Instagram account needs to be linked to a Facebook page. However, if you were somehow removed from the admin list on that Facebook page, you may be facing some issues with advertising on Instagram.

To make sure you have admin permission for your Linked Page, go to Facebook. You can even try disconnecting and relinking your Instagram account from that Page.

Add or remove Instagram account from Facebook account center

To unlink a Facebook page from your Instagram account, go to your profile settings and go to the Meta Accounts Center. Tap on Accounts and delete the problematic Facebook Page. Now you can start from scratch and try adding the Facebook page again.

Reels with gifs or other effects cannot be boosted as advertisements

If you have a gif on your reel, you cannot reinforce it. Gifs are copyrighted artistic content, so unfortunately you are not allowed to use them in commercial videos – i.e. advertised Reel.

Rebuild and reshare your Reel without gif to avoid this error. You should now be able to increase your Instagram Reel.

Reels containing touchable items cannot be increased

You are not allowed to power-up Reels with interactive stickers… with one exception.

Forbidden stickers include: questions, @mentions or whatever has a floating emoji scale.

What is is allowed: voting tag.

We strain our brains to understand why this is against Instagram’s code of conduct, but we fall short. Sometimes Instagram is like an annoying parent, I guess? “Because I said that was reason enough!”

how to fix

If you’ve run into this problem, the solution is pretty obvious, but we’ll say it anyway: Remake your reel without that touchable sticker element. If you want to engage your audience with a question, try using the text or voiceover tool to ask the big question. You can also use the caption to spell out your interesting query.

The resolution of this video is too low

Instagram only wants to highlight content that looks great. (Yes, that’s right, looks are important.) If your video doesn’t meet Instagram Reels’ specifications and is low resolution or not in portrait format, your enhancement will likely be rejected. (We’ve also found in our experiments that videos with zoom cause a resolution issue.)

All Instagram Reels must be 1080 pixels wide by 1920 pixels tall, adhering to the 9:16 aspect ratio. Learn more about the technical details of Reels with our 2022 Instagram Reel Sizes Cheat Sheet: Features, Proportions and more.

This video is too long

While Instagram Reels can be up to 90 seconds long, you are only allowed to feature Instagram reels that are 60 seconds or less.

how to fix

If your backing is being rejected for length, it’s time to put on your editor’s hat and start cutting. Go back and edit your Reel up to 60 seconds and try increasing it again.

Reels using effects cannot be boosted as ads

The beauty of Instagram’s library of filters and effects is that anyone can be creative with AR and add their own. That’s how we get such a powerful selection, from funky disco lighting to the goatee and sunglasses filter that makes us look like Guy Fieri.

It’s okay to use Instagram’s own filters on your upgraded Reels, but if you’re using a third-party designed effect, your attempt to boost will be blocked.
