Creating a pet account on Instagram can be incredibly fun and rewarding! The question is, where to start? Well, once you have signed up to make an account, the most important real estate on your home page is your bio!
For a dog Instagram accounts the bio is incredibly important because you only have 150 characters to grab the attention of new people. In this 150 characters, you must convince them your account is worthy of their follow. It’s important to be unique and put your dogs personality in to the bio so people with similar dogs will find things in common with you. It is also important to try to connect with the bio through emotion. Whether it be happiness or sadness. People love to show support just as much as they love to laugh and giggle.
For The Best Dog Instagram Bio read below and we will explain lots like emojis, name ideas, username, adding a website and more –
How To Put Your Pet On Instagram Bio
To add your pet in to the instagram bio you want to click on “Edit Profile” on your profile page. This can be done by opening the instagram app on your phone then clicking the button at the bottom right of the screen. If you have loaded a picture it will show your display picture as the logo. If account is brand new there won’t be anything there yet.,
Once you have made it to your profile page there will be another button to click 3/4 of the way up the screen. It’s on the right hand side and says “Edit Profile.” This is where you will edit all the important things in your profile. Including Name, Username, Website & of course Bio.
Don’t confuse the name with your username. They are different! The name is displayed on your feed when people visit your page. Located on your feed below the display picture its the first text visitors will see. It’s purpose is to name the person or people behind the page. You can have any name you want here provided it’s not offensive. It’s ok to have the same name as someone else. For a dog instagram account we recommend using the name (s) of the dogs followers can expect to see in the photos and videos you will be posting.
For eg here is an instafamous dogs account who’s username is @tacos_frenchies but their name is Taco, Gucci & Prada which are the 3 dogs regularly featuring in it. Feel free to have some fun with this as you can include their personality here to such as “Farting Frank” etc etc.
The trick is to make it as short as possible but also make it easy to remember. The reason for this is if its super long like @the_best_bullodg_in_the_world_1234_bar_none_43. there is no chance anyone will be able to remember it. Also you want to limit the use of special characters for the same reason. Some people do things like double underscore (__) which is a mistake because it can often be confused for looking like just 1 underscore (_).
The aim of the game is to make the username (Also known as handle) as short and also like your dog as possible. It’s ok to add a number or underscore or 2 in there but we recommend no more than 2 special characters and no more than 2 numbers. Also try to keep the total username length to under 15 or so characters.
Someone Else Has The Username I Want
It happens so don’t stress! In fact instagram is so full of doggy accounts now it can actually be very difficult to get a good, short and catchy instagram handle.
Unlike the Name the Username cannot be used by more than 1 account. If someone else already is using the one you want we recommend either adding in an underscore or single number to make it your own. Get creative everyone and try to use easy words for people to remember.
The next section is where you would add your website or blog if you have one. With all the visitors that will eventually come to your instagram page it’s important you send that traffic to somewhere. You can only add 1 website page so make it count!
Finally it’s time to edit the bio itself. You only have 150 captions so make it count! Whatever it is that makes your dog special, funny, sad, etc this is the place to let your visitors know. If they fart put it in. If they love to bark all night waking up the neighbourhood put it in. If they never listen to you at the park and you spend hours chasing them to come home definitely put it in!
Stats say you have about 5 seconds max to convince the new visitor to make a decision to follow you. If your bio is boring and too much like what every one else is you wont get the follow.
