So don’t sit around – it’s time to get rid of blurry pictures and outdated information and start your way to a magnetic social media bio now.

1. Add Powerful Keywords

Various search engines are using social media bios in their algorithms. To make yourself searchable, add relevant keywords to your social media bio. Think about the terms people search for when looking for information about your field. Tools like Moz keyword explorer, Google Keyword Planner, Keyword Research Tool AnswerThePublic are helpful for exploring what your audience is looking for. Add the keywords to your LinkedIn job title, description, and skills as well as to your Instagram bio, Facebook and Twitter photo names, interests, and experience descriptions.

2. Link To A Target Message

Social media bio is a great way to invite people to take further action and direct the visitors to your website, blog or another landing page. For an even better success add a link to your latest content and update it regularly. Use custom shortlinks like cli.re/Jenny to make your links easily shared.
