Here are our Instagram tips for writing a perfect Instagram bio:

1. Use Top Targeted Keywords 

This first Instagram tip is essential and will make your Instagram profile easier to discover! Instagram will be rolling out a new keyword search feature on its platform so this will work hand-in-hand with putting your profile at the top of a search list. 

 

2. Tag Your Other Accounts

3. Use Hashtags!

While using hashtags in your Instagram Bio does not directly improve searchability within those hashtags, using branded hashtags does however put a spotlight on your posts. Audiences’ will associate it with your profile and may participate as well by tagging their own posts with your hashtag!

 

4. Use Your Brand’s Tone Of Voice

Whether you are writing short bullet points or short sentences, sticking to your brand’s tone of voice will maintain synergy between the page and your content. 

 

5. Add A Website Link

This last Instagram tip is a great way to get visitors from your Instagram profile directed to your website.

Adding a CTA in your bio to accompany your website link can improve click-through-rates and increase engagement to make your Instagram profile more successful.
