How to Make Your Instagram Profile Look Professional

1. Choose a Simple Username

First we have to get the basics right, it's important to pick the right username.

  • Don't use any '_', '.' or numbers. Keep the name clean with words only.

  • Keep the name as short as possible, you can always give more details in the later sections.

  • Make sure the name is relevant to what you do.

Our Example: @jimmyallensoffficial @jimmysdurham

2. Use a Clear Profile Picture

First we have to get the basics right, it's important to pick the right username.

  • Choose a high-quality and clear profile picture that represents your brand.

  • Use a recognisable logo that relates to your name, centred and cropped correctly.

  • Consider using bright eye-catching colours.

Our Example: We came up with a simple new logo using brand colours.

3. Craft a Compelling Name & Bio:

  • Keep your name simple and aligned with your username.

  • Select the most appropriate industry to tag in your bio.

  • Utilise line breaks and short phrases to keep your description clear and concise. Consider using a relevant emoji at the start of each line.

Our Example:

4. Story Highlights:

  • Create custom cover images an relevant titles for each highlight.

  • Add relevant and engaging content to each highlight.

  • Update their content regularly as you post to your story.

Our Example: N/A

5. Post Engaging Content:

  • Define your target customer and tailor your content to meet their interests.

  • Use images and graphics that align with your brand's style and message (use your brand's colours & typefaces).

  • Share a mix of promotional, educational, and entertaining content. Don't flood your feed with too much promotion, people won't care.
