Creating solid foundations on Instagram - The Basics

top tips Aug 21, 2023

Hey there, fellow gram-enthusiasts! Ready to strut your stuff on the colorful dance floor of Instagram marketing? Hold up, before you shimmy into the latest trends, let's lay down some solid foundations. It's like mastering a classic dance move before you bust out the floss. 😉

Tip 1: First Impressions are Everything: Picture this – you're at a carnival, and the first ride you see is a roller coaster that goes upside down seven times. You're intrigued, but you haven't even warmed up yet! That's how your Instagram profile works. Use your first line to paint a vivid picture of what you're about. Make it so intriguing that visitors can't help but click 'Follow' for more!

Tip 2: Short & Sassy Bio Magic: Your bio isn't an autobiography, it's a speed date! Keep it short, sweet, and full of personality. Unleash your uniqueness in a punchy way – are you a coffee geek, a plant parent, or a dog lover? Let the world know in a heartbeat. Find out more about creating a banging bio here 

Tip 3: Call to Action, Baby!: Think of your Instagram bio like a road sign. Without a clear direction, your visitors might just wander off. Add a Call to Action (CTA) that tells them exactly what to do next. Whether it's "Explore our collections," "Book your spot," or "Join the fun," guide them to the party.

Tip 4: Link it Right: That one precious link is like a secret treasure chest. Use it wisely! Direct your visitors to your latest blog post, your new product launch, or even a limited-time offer. Keep it fresh, and you'll have them clicking like there's no tomorrow.

Tip 5: All Channels, One Identity: You're not a shape-shifting wizard – your profile should have a consistent vibe across all social media platforms. Whether it's your profile picture, colors, or overall style, make sure visitors recognize you no matter where they find you. It's like having your signature dance move on every stage!

Now, why is mastering the basics a must-do before diving into trends? It's like building a skyscraper on a rock-solid foundation. Without getting the basics right, trends might just tumble down like a house of cards. But when you've got your profile polished and shining, you're setting yourself up for trend-topping success.

Remember, before you whirl into the trend tornado, make sure your Instagram mojo is in tiptop shape.
