The Perfect Instagram Profile Page

Mastering the art of the perfect Instagram profile page is no mean feat so we have put together some tips. Remember that Instagram is a moving feast, and new features are released regularly. Instagram tips may vary from one business type to another, and what is right for one business may not be for another. We keep our clients abreast of new features and tips, as they appear (and remember one size does not always fit all!). Instagram is one of many social networks, it may not be the best choice of network for you.

Company Name

For the perfect instagram profile page, your Instagram user name should resemble your business name as closely as possible. Link this: @biteintonet

Keep all your business social handles the same so that there’s consistency between different social channels. For example:

Profile Image

Upload your business profile image here. Image dimensions:

  • (110 x 110 Mobile)
  • (180 x 180 Desktop)

For Business accounts, it’s always best to use your company logo as the profile image.


This is your chance to introduce your brand or business and create the perfect Instagram profile page. Keep it short and to the point. Most of all, keep it informative and fun.

Avoid “BuzzWords” and keep the tone fresh and conversational, but do use a slogan or brief description that speaks your brand voice.

Use a branded hashtag to encourage tagging and sharing.


Put your company’s web address or Facebook URL here.

Always try to direct Instagram traffic to your own website.

You can use an Instagram-specific relevant bio link pointing to your homepage or your current promotion (landing page) – use a URL tracker like Bitly to further assess your Instagram traffic. (We use


Watermarking your company logo into your photos can be one way of effective branding, but it may not suit all.

Not every image need be about sell sell sell. Try posting some behind-the-scenes photos that reveal a little more about your brand’s personality.

Pick a theme and stay consistent.

Try to inspire your audience and create a personal bond.

Keep comments and interactions on a conversational level. No hard selling. This will put people off.


Post thoughtful and genuine comments on other peoples photos. This helps build interactions and hopefully potential customers and followers.

Keep comments and interactions on a conversational level. No hard selling. This will put people off.


Use #tags to target a particular audience. Instagram posts with at least one hashtag get almost 13% more engagement than posts without hashtags.

Don’t always follow the beaten track. By being more specific with your tags, you’ll attract a more focused potential customer.

Use a maximum of 30 tags and keep them varied. Using the same tags on every post is not the best policy.

Use well thought out #hashtags


Photos should be original, interesting and provoke engagement. They should show you and your business off in the best possible light.

Always use high resolution images. Striking visual content grabs attention. Reject blurred and pixelated photos, they have no place on an image lead platform.


Geotag your photos so potential customers know where your business is. It may also attract new followers in your local area.

Add geotags to promote offers to target locations. Also good if you have multiple stores in different areas that you want to promote.


Captions help grab the views’ attention, and if you can make them laugh or smile with your caption, you’ll retain more people as followers.

Caption Tips
  • Add URL to captions to drive traffic;
  • Ask questions to your captions to increase engagement;
  • Be witty, friendly and informal;
  • If you’ve posted a picture of a product you sell, add a direct link to that product on your site in the caption.
  • Tag larger relevant accounts in your photos.
  • Don’t over post
  • Keep your post schedule consistent
  • Post at optimal times for your audience
  • Split your schedule between stories and posts

Got Biteinto to rescue a large and complex site from Umbraco and make it work in WordPress. They moved heaven and earth to do it quickly, accurately and within a tight budget, doing way more than expected before having to charge a very modest extra to cope with unforeseen issues required to complete the project. Most impressive of all is that ongoing support was still freely given long after she'd finished and been paid for the conversion and website launch contracted for. Quite exceptional service: thanks. I would highly recommended Elly and to anyone requiring website design and build.

The team at Biteinto are a real pleasure to work with. Extremely diligent and hard working, they went above and beyond to ensure that we had the work we wanted to doing delivered on time and the results exceeded our expectations. I also love the fact that the team empowers you to take control of your own website and they work hard to deliver you results. A small business, with real people to work with, who care very much that they deliver an excellent product, I would highly recommend Biteinto.

Elly has created a website for my business and has gone above and beyond. I love the website it’s everything I wanted and MORE due to Elly personally. She totally understands the style, direction and vibe of the site you are aiming for. She takes the time to really understand and guide you through the whole process. She cares about her work which ultimately means she also very much cares about yours. I had a million and one questions during the process of the website being created and Elly answered every single one and never once made me feel silly for asking them! I simply cannot recommend Elly enough, a personable, understanding and professional designer with SO MUCH knowledge in her field. She is a true expert and you will not be disappointed!!! Thank you Elly for giving me the best start possible with my business journey.

Elly went over and above to make sure I ended up with a fabulous end product - I absolutely love my website, it looks really high-end and professional. Couldn't recommend enough.

Elly at Biteinto has just revamped my website in a matter of weeks and it is amazing; she also incorporated an online shop into the site, taking the hassle of having to contact purchasers for payment. She worked tirelessly to get my site up and running again, pulling out all the stops; having waited eight months for my previous designer to deliver a site which was incomplete and not user or search engine friendly.Elly is always contactable and understood my website needs completely.I would thoroughly recommend Biteinto and Elly for a professional, fast, efficient and creative service.

I am thrilled with our new website. Elly untangled my rambling thoughts and a vague vision of what I wanted into a brilliantly designed and fantastic looking website. She immediately understood our business and the customers we were hoping to reach and this is reflected in a clear and easy to navigate site. The new website had an instant impact on bookings. Elly is quick to reply to emails and always available to help. Highly recommended. Thank you Elly!

Elly at Biteinto has created a wonderful website, in budget and on time! She listened carefully to our brief and has managed to incorporate both our technical requirements and ethos. Biteinto offer a bespoke, personal service. They are creative bunch and had masses of input from concept to completion. Biteinto are able to manage a variety of projects including; build, design, marketing, and sales. They have encyclopaedic knowledge of all things Equestrian. However, do not be put off if you are retail or media, as Bitenet have a breadth of commercial knowledge and experience. I feel very fortunate to have found Bitenet they are a pleasure to work with. I look forward to our long term relationship. Thank you so very much for your commitment Elly, and thank you fir a website we are all so proud of.

We've been working with Elly at for over 7 years now and on behalf of the whole team at Saving Faces, we couldn't recommend her highly enough. We've always received fast and efficient service, sometimes often at short notice when necessary and we couldn't thank her enough for her patience, understanding and all the helpful non-jargon advice she has given especially as we are fairly a non-technical team. Elly's also been great in creating our two new websites and understood from the start exactly what we wanted.

Elly has been very helpful in building our website and making sure all our requirements were met. We have experienced far more sales with this website than our previous one, in large part thanks to Elly's efforts. The response time is very fast and being a fairly non-technical company we find that all our questions are answered clearly.

Elly has been looking after my website construction, management and social media for over a year now . As a small brand owner with little knowledge of these things it has been fabulous to sit back and let Elly and the “bite” team help me , inspire me and help to build my brand, they’re fabulous, she’s fabulous.

We have been working with developing our online marketing for sometime with amazing results. We couldn't be happier with the responsive service that they have offered. Honest straightforward advice without the corporate jingo, so helpful in understanding our sales strategy and rebranding. Lateral thinkers in a manner that so many other agencies are not.
