It’s week three of Influencer Tips Tuesday, and I am excited to go over this week’s lesson: Profile Perfect.
I hope you applied some of the tips I shared in our last week’s lesson on how to make your Instagram look professional at first glance, and might have already attracted a handful of new brand collabs and more followers.
This week we will go a little deeper on how to make your Instagram stand out in the Instagram crowd. We will talk tactics and some fun creative processes that you can apply to improve your account visibility.
Why don’t we get right into today’s lesson: Profile Perfect.
Seven Ways To Perfecting Your Instagram Profile
One: Include all the details mentioned last week + Targeted Keywords
If you don’t know, Instagram only allows 150 characters for your bio section. You have to curate the best words that will represent what you do and attract the right audience. One of the things you can do to add extra keywords is to put it in the name field. Be aware that you can only put 30 characters in the name field.
Two: Account type: Business or Creator
If you are setting your account as personal, you have to switch it now to either business or creator. As it allows you to access your Instagram Stats, where you can use this information to understand your audience or include them when pitching brand deals.
Three: Fun fonts and special characters
If you would like your Instagram Bio to show your creativity, you can have fun with unique fonts that represent your brand. I recommend using IGFonts.io to help you generate text fonts that you can copy and paste into your Instagram bio.
If you are looking to add some special characters like a black and white smiley face (☻) or a floral heart (❦), you can use Copychar.cc to find and copy special characters to your clipboard. Click or tap on a character, and it will be copied to your clipboard.
Four: Typing Hacks
If you put a space at the end of the last character of the line before the line break, it will not work.
If you want to add line breaks into your bio, you can write your bio on the desktop to allow you to put line breaks. Or you can use the website like linebreaks.igrm.me or later app to do that for you.
Five: Highlight Cover
By organizing or using on-brand covers for your highlights, your Instagram account will look more professional. It will make your account as a whole be more cohesive and aligned with your aesthetic.
Six: Brand your Hashtag
Creating your brand’s hashtag like #InfluencerTipsTuesday I post every Tuesday, is a good way for people to remember you and make it easier to navigate your specific content from the clickable link shown in your bio.
Seven: Call to action
Call to action is a must when it comes to your Instagram bio. You want to be straightforward and let your followers know what you want them to do. Putting an emoji in front and behind the “Call to action” phase to gain attention is also a good practice to be doing.
