How do I update my profile information?
Your Instagram profile is the basic of your Instagram account. Your profile represents who you are and how you want to do things on Instagram. You make decisions bout your exposure to other people on Instagram, about your post and things in general.
You create your profile once you start using Instagram, so in time you may want to make changes and adjustments. Instagram has a lot of tools that can make this happen.
Once it is created, the Instagram account is made a public one and everyone using Instagram can see your posts, photos, comments, likes…
To make sure your account is public you have to go to “Options” (the gear button on iOS, or three dots on Android) and tap “Private Account” to turn it off.
If you have a private account you will probably want it to be a private one, but for your business, it is good for an account to be public so it can attract as many followers and potential customers as it can. This is not the only way that this can help your business, but also you will spread your business network, get feedbacks and valuable information.
You can always reverse this process.
If you think your username does not suite you that good anymore because it does not differ from others that much and you do not stand out in any way, you can change it.
All you have to do is go to “Edit Profile” on your profile page, on the right of your profile photo.
Then you click on the text or open space on the right of person icon and you can enter your username that you think will be much better for you and that you want to use in the future.
For your business Instagram account, you must have easily searchable business name. Regardless of the username, you also put the full name of your business in the “name” section of your profile. When people make a search, this will appear under your profile photo and your username.
If you decide it is better to have another business name, you go to your profile page and find “Edit Profile” . Then you click on the text or open space beside the clipboard icon and write your new business name there.
Your profile photo should be eye catchy, with your nice smiling face, or it can be the company logo if you have a business account. Whatever you think will make people interested in your profile.
Not less than your photo, your Bio should be something creative to say basic things about you but in a relaxed way that will give people reason to follow you. You should be informative but try to find something that makes you unique and that will hit your personality.
One other important thing for your business is to make a trackable link in your Bio. As URL s are not allowed anywhere else except the single “website” box in your bio, you make sure you make the best of it. For example, you can refer to a link in the individual photo. This way you can engage people who follow you on Instagram and they will visit your website.
Before you finish updating your profile, you can also check your “Options” settings if you want to consider your notification options again.
Well, now the job is done, your profile information is changed, so you can relax and enjoy the Instagram ride.
