150 Instagram Bio Ideas That Will Help You Up Your Social Media Game

According to researchers, it takes less than two-tenths of a second for an online visitor to form an impression of your Instagram. Knowing this, it’s important to use your Instagram bio to pique interest in your account, and to add personality to your feed. However, we know how difficult it is to come up clever bios, so we compiled a list of our favorite quotes and amusing statements in order to help you up your social media game and take over the insta world.

When was the last time you updated your Instagram bio?

If it’s been a while, remind yourself that your Instagram bio is the front and centre of your feed, and if you’re trying to grow your account, reach a bigger audience, and engage with people who aren’t just your friends — you have to ensure that it represents you in the best way possible. Anyone who stands out on Instagram for a specific skill, hobby, interest, or profession, has a bio that perfectly mirrors exactly what they do in the world, while still adding personality to their little corner of the internet.

When crafting the perfect bio, ask yourself — “Who am I trying to appeal to right now? What would my ideal follower look like, and what are they interested in? How do I sum myself and my goals and my personality up in 150 characters?” By keeping your Instagram bio direct, and to the point, with a little sprinkle of personality, anyone who visits your feed will know within moments how your feed will benefit them. With the added bit of personality, whether it is funny or simply just a fact about yourself, you personalize the account and make people smile, which is something you should never take for granted on the internet. People want to follow someone who is down to earth, and being quirky in your bio helps for you to get that across.

While we can’t help you with the direct format of your bio, as its all about what your feed is themed around and what your business or personal ventures call you to write, we can help you with the little punch of personality you should add to your Instagram feed. We scoured the internet and found a various array of one liners that both intrigued us and made us laugh. Putting one of these in your bio is guaranteed to amp it up.
