Instagram bios are fun, unique, and believe it or not, get the job done! Now remember, Instagram bios don’t get that way on their own. You will need to inject your specific brand of that “secret sauce” to get it perfect.
As part of our blog series on Instagram bios, we’ll start by giving you five tips…but ultimately it’s up to you to make your Instagram bio pop and sizzle. These tips are akin to style; in other words, within these tips is interpretation, and how you interpret them will lead to how you will make them work for you.
First of all, the Instagram bio is a short, bite-size description of you and/or your business. It consists of 150 characters.
It doesn’t matter what service or product your business provides — there are a zillion other people that offer the same services or products as you. But there is only one you! So in your Instagram bio, use your personality right off the bat. Use humor if appropriate, but only if it comes naturally to you and works for your brand and business.
SinceInstagram bios have a 150 character limit, always use dense adjectives specific to you or your brand. Choreograph those words so that it says exactly what you want it to say without question.
Include your phone number or messenger contact info. This makes you accessible to your audience directly. You can even put hours of operation. Please always get back to them in a kind and timely manner.
Use emojis, symbols such as bullet points. For a great resource, visit the Noun Project. This site will give you a great selection of all sorts of symbols and pictures that you can use in your Instagram bio. Again, how you use them will reveal your personality, which is what you want! These would also save on the word count while still driving your message and brand.
You can use Call To Action (CTA) buttons or arrows that face in the direction towards your link so that your viewer is enticed to click. Use power words with your CTA, such as Try, Click, Sign up, Get, Discover, just to name a few.
