uditing an Instagram page is not a quick or simple process but it is a must because you cannot fix a problem if you don’t know the problem.
So let’s go through each section of an Instagram page.
Try to keep it simple and searchable. Use your business name and the industry, if required. We also get the option of selecting the industry in a business account that is displayed below the page’s name. These are minor things but very impactful.
Having a creative name might sound good but it might not be searchable which will result in loss of followers and potential business as well.
The profile picture should be of good quality, it should fit in the circle perfectly without losing the edges of the logo. The standard size is 110 x 110 pixels for the profile picture.
Bio is a real game-changer, it has 150 character limit and one has to convey why should a visitor become your follower. Using relevant hashtags will up your search game.
Instagram gives a very limited space to put up the link and one of the most important ones is in the bio. Using a link aggregator is advisable. It helps you place all your links in one place and a central link is created to put up in the bio. There are multiple of them available, to name a few there are Campsite, Linktree, Kijo, etc. some of them are free and others are paid.
Then comes the contact option. You can be contacted through mobile number and email address and physical address. Depending on your business make sure to use it wisely.
