When I manage DTECH-ENGINEERING’s Instagram account, one of the main targets is to get the verification badge.
A verified badge is a blue checkmark that appears next to an Instagram account’s name. It means Instagram has confirmed that an account is the authentic presence of the public figure, celebrity, or global brand it represents, and it can increase the trust of public.
DTECH’s Instagram account is already eligible for verified badge in term of quality, authenticity, and notability, but it still need a crucial step to get the verified badge.
I used various document as the supporting documents for verification request to Instagram:
- Articles of incorporation
- Utility Bill
- Tax return
but it all did nothing.
And today, after struggling to get the verified badge, finally we did it.
There is a verified badge! Look at this!
Here is the lesson.
When submitting for the Instagram verification, there are some option to fill. The two most important part are
- Full Name
- Known As
To get the verification, we have to fill the correct name there:
- Full Name: DTECH INOVASI INDONESIA
- Known As: DTECH-ENGINEERING
When I tried several times of verification, I fill the wrong name there. Initially I fill Full Name with DTECH-ENGINEERING and Known As with DTECH INOVASI INDONESIA, or sometimes PT DTECH INOVASI INDONESIA. And that’s the problem.
So, to get the verified badge, make sure you fill the correct information there and attach the correct supporting document.
