160 characters or less. That’s all the space you have to convince the world at large to follow you and your brilliant tweets, instagram pictures and other various steams of your digital life. If you think it’s not important – take a second to reflect on the times you’ve decided not to follow someone back because they don’t have a bio, or because their bio makes no sense to you. I know I’m guilty of that offense! So what can you do to make your bio cause people to fall over themselves in their rush to follow you?
Easy, use our simple formula.
IFB’s Formula for Writing the Perfect Bio
Who You Are + What You Do + A Peek of Personality
Yup. It’s that easy. Need an example? Let’s start with my bio:
Girl who loves blogging, fashion, photography, Hogwarts, sharks & high heels. Digital Strategist for @_IFB. Boating enthusiast.
Here’s what you get from that – I’m a girl. I like blogging, I work at IFB, appreciate a nautical lifestyle and fashion, I’m also a Harry Potter fan. So – if you follow me you’ll get a little taste of all of that.
Here are a few more of our favorite social media bios… how’s yours doing? Let us know in the comments!
