Julia Moore
Most frequently, people need a couple of seconds to understand whether your account is appealing to them or not. The first thing that they see visiting someone's profile is a bio. This is the part that creates the first impression. If your bio doesn't attract attention, then you will lose not only potential followers but existing ones too, as they may find your page uninteresting. In this article, we share our ideas that you can write in the bio of your Instagram page.

How an ideal bio looks like

An Instagram bio is like presenting yourself to other people. Sometimes it can be difficult to find appropriate words that can perfectly describe you or your business. As we want to help you in creating a catchy bio, we give you some tips about it.

Please note: You can add to the bio up to 150 characters. That's about 30 words. Therefore, try to place only the most important facts about you.
  • Find in yourself something that makes you special and differs from others. Look for the reason why people have to follow you. For example, you are a novice marketer. To draw the audience's attention, write in the bio that you send a one-month free ready-made content plan for following you.
  • Do not add too abstruse phrases and long sentences with a bulk of terms. It is unlikely that someone will read this. Even if they do read it, not everyone will even understand the meaning of the terms.
  • The Instagram bio should correspond to the subject of your account. For example, you run a fashion Instagram account. So, don't write that you like animals and travelling. It is better to add a quote like "Fashion is not about utility. An accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity" from the famous Meryl Streep movie "The Devil Wears Prada".
  • Reach your target audience through the bio. Your goal isn't just to gain followers, but to attract those users who will be interested in your account. For example, you can write "Isn’t it scary that doctors call what they do "practice"?", if you are a doctor and run your own blog.
