How to Create the Perfect Profile
You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
If the details of your posts don’t show what your brand actually is, all of your Instagramming will lead nowhere, and you may turn away potential new followers. The key to making passersby stop and click “follow” is to stay recognizable and catchy.
How to achieve this?
Consider your name and username
These are the key elements of your bio that Instagram looks at in search queries, so choose a name that represents your business well. Moreover, it’s preferable to choose a name that is the same as, or related to, the name of your business across other social media sites. Additionally, try to make your Instagram name easy to remember, pronounce, and spell.
Make a bio description that hooks followers
When someone looks at your profile for the first time and is not familiar with your brand, they will need a few seconds to digest the information and decide whether or not to hit “follow.” What helps them make the decision? Your bio! Convince your potential follower of the value you’ll add to their feeds by giving them three crucial pieces of information: who you are, what you do and how they can reach you (provide a link to your website or your physical address if there is any).
Keep your profile image consistent as well
Don’t overlook the fact that all your interactions on Instagram will be accompanied by a tiny icon of your profile picture. Make sure it’s of top quality, professionally designed, and recognizable.
