Brevity Is The Key

A common mistake is made by those who try to use all the characters available. It’s obvious that you cannot express your every achievement or personality trait in 160 characters, and you shouldn’t. 

Consider that people tend to scan through the first lines and pick out the relevant points from there. Your bio should be a short and meaningful snapshot of who you or your company is. Think of it as a headline that gets straight to the point.

Don’t Be Humble

Tell people about your skills and achievements, especially if we are talking about how to build a perfect LinkedIn profile. Think carefully — what sets you apart from others? 

A good bio section includes particular unique skills, hobbies or interests that make you stand out. Remember that this is a place to be self-promotional and give a reason for people to follow you.

Include a Call To Action

The social media bio is not only a description about you, it’s also a way to invite people to find out more about you. If you want to get people off the app and to your website, blog or another landing page, add a call to action to your bio.

Once people have gone through your information, further engage your audience and instead of adding your homepage URL provide a link to your latest content, newsletter sign-up page, free trial versions or special promotions.

Embrace the Power of Keywords

Many of the search engines are using social media bios in their algorithms so including powerful keywords is a must. 

Think carefully about your values and the values of your audience as keywords help people to find you and your profile for the right reason.

Consider the Platform

Be aware of who your audience is and remember that it might differ between social media platforms. On Twitter and Instagram try to be more authentic and personal while on LinkedIn write a longer and more in-depth description of your professional achievements. And know your limits:

  • Instagram bio: 150-character maximum 
  • Twitter Bio: 160-character maximum 
  • LinkedIn Summary: 2 000-character maximum 
  • Facebook short description: 155-character maximum

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
