Instagram Hacks for Creating Cool Instagram Bios:
#1: Be Found In More Search Results on the Explore Page
The “Name” field in your Instagram bio is searchable! I would recommend you change it or add words highlighting what your Instagram profile or business is about.
Including important keywords in your Name field, your chances of appearing in Instagram users searches is much higher!
How to do it:
Tap on “Edit Profile” on the top right of your Instagram profile
Under your profile picture, find the “Name” field. Change the text here to include your keywords
Once finished, tap “Done” on the top right corner of your screen
#2: Link to Other Profiles or Hashtags in Your Bio
Instagram launched clickable text in your bio. So when you include a # or @ before a word or account, other users will be able to click it to learn more!
This could be really useful if you’re running a branded hashtag campaign or you have want gain more traffic to your website.
For example, online music producer store, and 30-60 second videos are getting comments and they want to know where they can listen to more, your bio has the answer. How to do it:
From your Instagram Profile page, tap “Edit Profile”
In the bio section, add any Instagram handles (including the @ symbol) or any hashtags (using the # symbol)
Tap “Done” in the top right of the screen when you’re finished with your bio
Instagram will automatically make this text link to the Instagram profiles or hashtags
Hacking Instagram and Create Great Instagram Captions:
#3: Hide Your Hashtags in Your Caption
You already know adding hashtags to your posts can really boosts your engagement ( 1 hashtag can increase engagement at least 12 percent)!
Instagram allows you to have up to 30 hashtags per post, but having them bunched up next to your caption looks messy. There’s a simple solution.
How to hide your hashtags in your Instagram caption:
After you’ve written your caption on Instagram, you need to add a series of symbols — dashes, asterisks, or dots, each on a separate line (remember to push return after every symbol to create a separate line).
This will shuffle your hashtags down and make your post a lot neater when it’s published
Hack Instagram to Boost the Engagement on Your Instagram Stories:
#4: Get More Instagram Stories Views by Including Hashtags
You can add up to 10 hashtags for each your Instagram story posts!
By adding an Instagram hashtag to your story, you’re giving your content an added chance to be seen by new audiences. Most Instagram geo-location tags and hashtags have their own Stories attached to them, which means they could appear on the Explore Page.
So to maximize on this under-utilized hack, add 10 relevant hashtags to your next story!
And if you don’t want to clutter your image with the added text, you can shrink the text size of your hashtags (just ‘pinch’ the hashtag text to make it bigger or smaller) and hide the text under a GIF or Sticker!
No one will be the wiser, but your Instagram Stories could appear on the Explore page for that hashtag.
