You probably heard the saying, first impression is the last impression? Well that’s true in social media as it is in real life, and often times even more judgmental. Often times people create their online persona to reflect what they really want to be, not always what they are.
Someone may downplay their weaknesses and focus on their strengths to impress new friends online. Everyone remembers when they find out about a cool new Twitter or Instagram account and start following the person.
Often time’s it’s the funny or clever Instagram bios that best stick in someone’s mind and create a good first impression. But it’s not always clear how to make the best first impression. It’s a combination of being cool, funny, creative, unique and thoughtful.
That’s where I come in, I’ve compiled a list of the top Instagram bios from around the world and compiled them below so that you can get a good idea of what makes a good bio. But first, let’s get into a bit of tips on how to create your very own.
“Charm was a scheme for making strangers like and trust a person immediately, no matter what the charmer had in mind.”
― Kurt Vonnegut, Breakfast of Champions
Tips On Great Instagram Bios
Creating your own bio can be daunting but below are some tips to get you going. If you read through the top bios below, you will notice that there are certain trends in them and that will give you a good idea of the building blocks necessary to be successful.
Make your bio short and sweet. No one likes long wordy descriptions and the shorter it is, the more memorable it will be.
Try to incorporate something funny into your bio to make people laugh, they are much more likely to remember it if they laugh while reading the description.
Create something that is unique to you and only you. This should be a glimpse into who you are and what you’re interested in. Make sure it does just that.
Read through the best Instagram bios to get ideas for your very own. You will notice that as you read through you will pick up on what strikes you as memorable and well done.
Use something that is commonly known, you could use a saying from a famous person, an alliteration that people may know, or a rhyme that is commonly told. If people have already heard something similar, they will recognize it and will be more likely to remember it.
Ultimately, the goal is to have a memorable bio and one that puts you in the best light. Make sure you are doing just that when writing your very own.
If you need any help editing your bio, check out the Instagram Help Center, which will walk you through steps to edit your profile photo, name, username, email, and bio.
