How to edit your Instagram bio (Tutorial & Tips)

In this video, I will be sharing a tutorial on how to edit your Instagram bio as well as I will be sharing some key points to keep in mind which will help you optimize it and help you increase your followers!

Why is the Instagram bio important?

Your Instagram bio creates your first impression as it's the first thing that people see when they visit your profile and remember first impressions can be lasting.

This bio section is your introduction. It helps visitors understand what your profile is about, what your brand is about, and also helps them make up their mind if they want to follow you or not. And all of this is a decision taken in a few seconds based on your Instagram bio.

If your bio is clear and impressive, it will automatically make people want to explore your profile and engage with it.

The entire section that you see above your story highlights is the bio section.

So let's take a look at each one of them.

How to edit your Instagram bio

To edit your profile, go on the edit profile button

Edit your Instagram Profile Photo

Right at the top is your photo.

If you are a personal brand, put your head shot here.

If you have a logo, put that, but make sure that it is legible, it should be readable so that people can identify your photo.

If you put a logo, it should fit inside the circle properly and not get cut.

Edit your Instagram username

The next thing that I want to talk about is your username. Your username is the handle, which is seen right at top of Instagram. This is how people will tag you now.
