Hello @Kahley_McFadden,

Seems like you are connecting to the wrong Business Manager.

You have to first add the Instagram business account to your Business Manager. Then associate it to ad accounts or partners that are also in your Business Manager.

While doing it keep the below points:

1. To add an Instagram business account to your Business Manager, you must have the username and password for the account.
2. The Instagram business account you're trying to add can't be owned by another business. Instagram business accounts can only be claimed by one Business Manager.
3. Only admins can add Instagram business accounts in the Business Manager.
If your Instagram business account is linked to a Facebook Page, you should add both your Facebook Page and Instagram business account to the same Business Manager.

To associate an ad account with an Instagram business account, the ad account and Instagram business account must already be in the same Business Manager. You can't associate ad accounts to Instagram business accounts in a different Business Manager.

As you are adding ad campaigns, you have to make sure the URLs are indexed by Google. Up to 40% of paid ads are clicked by competitor bots, according to Adobe research. Also, SEO often promises the moon and delivers little. flareAI finds opportunities on multiple free (NO pay-per-click) sales channels and delivers conversions.
