Make use of the link in your Instagram bio

In addition to a cool quote, you also need a link in your Instagram bio. It can be a useful tool for growing your following and monetizing your account. It should lead to your Taplink page to make the maximum use. This is the page where you can gather all your links:

  • social profile links. Direct users to subscribe to all your social profiles and grow your following on social media as a whole.
  • donation links. Direct users to your profiles on donation platforms or give a PayPal link and collect tips.
  • contact buttons. Add messaging app and call buttons, or an opt-in form to let brands request paid posts and collaborations.
  • affiliate links. Give users links to the items they may want and get a small commission from their purchases.

Use templates to create your page in a matter of minutes. Here you can read detailed instructions. Try these templates for example:

What a perfect Instagram bio should be like

A perfect bio is custom first of all. Create a custom quote for your Instagram bio. It can be your favorite phrase, or your life motto, or a phrase people associate with you, etc. Here are more tips:

  • Think about what is something that makes you special and different from others. There should be some reason for people to follow you. For example, you are a novice marketer. To draw the audience's attention, tell you send a one-month free ready-made content plan for following you.
  • Do not choose too abstruse and long quotes with a bulk of terms for your Instagram bio. It is unlikely that someone will read this. Even if they do read it, not everyone will even understand the meaning of the terms. For example, you need a tattoo bio for your Instagam profile, make it short like "Ink it on, stand out strong".
  • The Instagram bio should correspond to the subject of your account. For example, you run a fashion profile. So, don't write that you like animals and traveling. 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 Instagram audience through the quote in your 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.

Let’s recap

In this article, we suggested you more than a hundred quotes that you can add to your bio on Instagram. Use phrases from songs or movies, quotes by famous people, come up with your own ideas, or choose any phrase from our list. Remember that the bio has to suit the style of your Instagram profile.
