You may not think that this is something you really need to worry about, but people actually read your bios and so do brands! Your Instagram bio is one of the first things that people will see besides your profile picture when they find your account. That being said, you definitely need to step it up a notch! Here is the best way to perfect your Instagram bio/profile and really catch some eyes!
Make sure your profile picture, first of all, is you! It also really needs to be a good quality photo.
Use Your Instagram Highlights
Using highlights can showcase what you have done. Make sure you put a lot of time and effort into them because brands will see these when they go on your page. I am working on using the app Unfold to make my highlights beautiful! They give you the option to place text, make frames and such as well. It’s a great app to make you stand out!
Make Your Username Worth It
Your username, if you are a blogger or influencer, should be your personal name, or the name of your blog. If your name is taken, like mine was, you can add small things at the end to make it work!
My Instagram name is now hannahljohnson_. It used to be hannnahhj. My full name is much easier to use and search rather than having to figure out how many n’s or h’s are in my username!
Link to Your Blog
You probably are already doing this, but you should definitely link to your blog or website. That’s another whole way for you to get traffic!
Try not to make your Instagram bio to serious and use some emojis to express yourself! Notice how I have mine “Lives in Sweatpants and Only Eats Pizza (Pizza Emoji)” People want to relate to who you are and want to know that you are just like them! Sharing with them some of your favorite things is a great way to show them you are.
Check How You Position Your Bio
Is it all one big clump of text? Vertically positioned? Do what you think looks best. There are also ways you can put different fonts and different positions as well (like centered text)!
