How To Perfect Your Instagram Bio

If you’re wanting to:

  1. gain a following

  2. snag brand deals

  3. overall – stand out from the crowd

your first impression on the gram is your Instagram bio!

So here’s a few of my tips/tricks/insights to make your first impression strong & stand out!

  • Remember you only have 150 characters and one clickable link – so you have to make it count! I use Link Tree to link multiple websites in my one clickable link. I love it. It is free. 
  • Say who you are and what you do with a little spice and flavor! I think it’s important to be YOU and make that known. Showcase your personality! 
  • Embrace the emoji or special character.
  • Intro your bio with one of these or similar:
  1. “most days you can find me”
  2. “I am mostly known for”
  3. “Featured/Showcased…”

Right now my bio has the tag line I have been using over the past couple years:

“sharing what I like with the people I love”

  • It’s nice on the eye to use line breaks. To do this I edit in notes and copy and paste.
  • You can now use hashtags in your bio! This is the perfect place to add your custom hashtag or most relevant. 
  • Location, location, location! Once I added my location into my bio – my following grew like crazy! If you’re trying to build a following to where you are. This could be important!
  • Know that the name you use in your bio (the bold 30 characters under your user name) is used in keyword searches, this is important to help others find you!

I hope that this inspires you to take a look at your IG bio and spruce it up a bit! Is there anything else you do to stand out in you bio? If you add some flair to you bio after reading this please screen share and tag!
