Perfecting Your Instagram Bio

Your first question when reading this post might be “why should I worry about perfecting my Instagram bio anyway?” Your Instagram bio is the first thing people see when clicking on your profile! It is ultimately your first impression that will influence whether people will check out your posts, follow you, or click off. If you are wanting to grow your Instagram platform, it is crucial that you make a good first impression. So what’s the best way to do that?

Who are you?

You would never begin a conversation with someone new without introducing yourself! The people who visit your page want to know your name and what you do! Besides, this gets those pesky small talk questions out of the way.

Target your audience.

What hobbies or skills do you want your audience to know about you and your content? This first impression is another perfect opportunity to target your niche audience, ensuring that you provide them with a summary of what they will see if they follow you! Are you a beauty influencer? Fitness guru? Whatever it is, make sure to include that in your bio. Something as simple as this can help you grow.

Link your other platforms.

Your Instagram bio is also a great place to include links or handles to your other social media platforms, blogs, or websites. It puts them all in one place and makes them easily accessible to everyone who visits your profile.

Show your personality!

Your Insta Bio doesn’t have to be all serious business, it’s also important to show a glimpse of your personality and fun side. A great way to do this is to include some emojis to space out your text!

Overall, don’t overthink what your Insta bio should look like. Instagram is a fun platform that shouldn’t be overwhelming or stressful, but if you have no idea where to begin, following these tips should help you!
