How To Create A Killer IG Bio


First of all, shoutout to my girl Olivia from @alifetoliv for taking these photos. She has an amazing camera and we had so much fun the other day shooting around downtown Columbus. 


Since many brands can't meet you in person, they do the next best thing- check out your social media, duh. A super easy way to land a brand collaboration is by having a killer Instagram Bio. Here are some of my main tips:

1) Grab my attention. I get so bored when I see "fashion, travel, lifestyle blogger" on every single bloggers pages. 
2) Add a personal touch.- examples: obsessed with vanilla lattes, lover of bulldogs, dislikes split ends. SOMETHING that I might relate to. 
3) Tell you followers what you can do for them. On my bio right now I have- "hoping to be your daily fashion inspo."
4) ALWAYS have your email listed. I can't tell you how many times I have gone to look for a blogger to invite her to an event and she doesn't have her email in her bio. This is how brands connect with you girls! People love the easiest way possible to do things and this is one of them. 
5) Link your website. This will help drive traffic, help with collaborations and show brands what your work really looks like. 

*** One more thing, your bio IS NOT going to appeal to everyone and guess what, that's fine! Because you want to stand out from the crowd. You want a brand to pick you because you aren't like everyone else :)

I hope this helped. I know it was kind of a different post than I normally do but that's one of my goals for the new year. Do you have anymore tips? I would love to hear in the comments! xoxo
