Staring at the blinking cursor, in the blank space for ‘Bio’, in your Instagram profile, do you feel not able to pronounce the thoughts running through your mind? Or not able to express who you are? Or not able to find the right words to sell what you got? We feel your frustration. So we have a guide that beholds the secret to crafting the perfect Instagram bio; the key to creating that first impression and gaining you more followers.
Pro Tips that do the trick
1. Short and sweet
Be concise but make sure to include all the important information in 150 characters or less to ensure the entire bio is visible on the screen. A few well-chosen words to describe yourself and your brand can help.
2. Say the magic word, Keyword
Make yourself more visible. Including keywords that accurately describe your brand, interests, or industry will help people to find your profile easily when they search for those terms.
3. Let the emojis speak for you
Add a few Emojis to your bio and make it visually appealing while also helping to convey your personality or message. Let your audience connect with you on a personal level. Using different types of emojis together can help. But let’s not forget less is more.
4. Flaunt your uniqueness
Your bio should tell your audience what makes you stand out in the crowd and give them a tease of what awaits them on your page. So do not shy away from telling them what you are.
5. Call for some action
Adding a call to action (CTA) that is as simple as "Follow for a daily dose of dopamine" or "Join our community" will encourage users to follow you. Let your bio do half the job.
6. Looks do Matter
Using line breaks will help your bio look more visually appealing and make it easy to read and thus connect. Do not miss out on those users with OCD.
7. Never stop updating
Your bio should contain the latest information and updates about you and the content your page delivers. There is no such thing as ‘news that remains news. Let new content take its place.
8. Link up
Utilize the link in your bio to drive traffic to your website or other social media profiles. Using a link-in-bio tool to bring all your social media profiles under a single link would be an intelligent move. Your audience will have a 360-degree view of your content in a single click.
Now that you have a checklist of the right content for your bio, let’s set its tone.
Tune up for a better tone
Your bio should say you are born to stand out. And the tone you use to communicate matters. Here are a few tips to craft an eye catchy bio that will be the perfect prelude to your page; that will give your audience no other choice but follow your page.
Pun for Fun
The bread and butter of any good Instagram bio, a pun can help you connect with your audience at a different level. It sets a style for your profile. Puns like "My cat says I'm pawsome.", and "Lettuce seize the day." can give a great start to your bio.
A pinch of sarcasm
Who can ignore a witty person? Adding a bit of sarcasm in your bio will definitely grab your audience’s attention by adding a touch of humor. ‘If you feel I am of no good, you can still use me as a bad example’, is one such self-intro.
A little show-off goes a long way
A display of your personal interests that lets people know what you are into is a great way to connect with like-minded individuals. ‘A cat lover who binge watches F.R.I.E.N.D.S while slurping on Ramen’, can attract the attention of users with similar interests. In short, adding humor in the right dose to your bio will take you a mile further. So go forth and mark your space on the internet.
Why care so much about your Insta bio
It only takes a few seconds for someone to decide whether they want to follow your account or not, so it's essential to make a good impression with your bio. Write the perfect bio, showcase the fun, and seize your audience. Once you are done with creating your bio do not forget to add Dazzlink to it.
