Any advice on what key pieces of info to include in an instagram bio?
I agree with Jazzy, it should be the more you can fit in the short amount of character they allow and to the point:
-Introduce yourself and what you do (I include here where I’m from)
-maybe announce your commissions status (open, close), shop or whatever is working for you.
-links and contact
Don’t put stuff like, “Here I post my ugly drawings” or anything like that I’ve seen some people do because is super unprofessional and misleading.
Also the most we can know the better, super short bios don’t help either. Like when it says, name, age, “I draw” are not the best.
This is really good advice. Yeah you don’t want to downplay yourself in your bio. I think people do that because they lack confidence maybe in their work.
I made some updates on the back of this after thinking what I want to do with with my account. Since I don’t have a site or store or anything to link to I think my ‘call to action’ is for people to DM me 🙂
That is a good question and I am not sure I do a great job myself, but thinking through it
– a quick friendly introduction to yourself
– any links to your website
– location (if relevant)
I have thought about adding location but it doesn’t feel that relevant. I don’t know… I like the idea of just being on the internet and in a global space rather than limiting myself to one specific space. Maybe I am wrong for thinking that.
