Your Instagram bio is the first thing people are going to see after they have been enticed by some of your images. So let’s go through the steps of making it really crisp and professional and entertaining to look at.
Your Instagram photo should be something that’s either relevant to your business if it’s a business profile. Or, if it’s a personal Instagram bio, make sure it’s a beautiful image of you or something that you love to do. Now, Instagram bio photos can go one of two ways. It can be a portrait of the person who’s running the Instagram or it can be something relevant to the Instagram thread. For example, if it’s a travel thread then it can be some exotic location or some wild and crazy trip with the photo that captured that. If it’s a professional money-making thread, it can be again the owner of the company or it can be the company’s logo. So, your Instagram bio photo needs to be tuned in and dialed into what your business is centered around.
Something to keep in mind when you’re creating an Instagram bio photo is that it is going to show up in a round format, not a square format. So when you’re selecting the photo or when you know picking the logo that would look best for you or work best for you, keep in mind there’s going to be some cropping. You’re going to lose most of those edges and have a perfectly round logo area or photo area. So do some test crops. Make sure it looks good before you put it up on your bio because you don’t want to have a shoddy bio photo.
The second feature of your Instagram bio is going to be the “text of the bio”. I mean the body of the bio. I love using the notes feature on my phone to keep an Instagram bio pre-typed ready to go.
When we talk about your Instagram bio, you definitely don’t want it to be “vanilla”. Meaning, just planned, plain Jane, blah! It doesn’t capture the attention. The funny thing is, in the professional industry, it used to be true that emojis were considered very unprofessional. It was only used by teenagers and young people to just express their selves. Nowadays, it’s totally flipped around. Because you have limited space in your Instagram bio, not only emojis are fun to look at and show your personality, but they’re going to save you some character space on your Instagram bio. You don’t have a lot of room to work with, so use it wisely.
To glam up your Instagram bio and add an extra spark, use fancy text fonts to create a bio. Your bio is not a resume or a job application, so use extra-ordinary text fonts to amaze your followers. Instagram text font generators can be found online and are free of cost. I used an amazing tool to create my Instagram bio. Click HERE to find out.
If you cover all of these elements of an Instagram bio, not only will it be short and sweet but it’s going to keep their attention and drive more and more people to your profile. So go back and look at your Instagram bio. Pull out your phone right now. Just take a glance over. It takes ten minutes maybe to get that thing fine-tuned.
