Writing a Twitter bio is a tough ask.
You get 160 characters to convince people to follow you. That’s about 25 words. You’ve got a lot of convincing to do in a tiny space.
Which means you must know what it takes to seal the deal.
That’s why we’ve put together the best tips for writing a Twitter bio that works.
Any bio is better than no bio. Yes, the thought of condensing all of who you are into just a few words can be paralyzing. But if you don’t do it, you’ll fail to attract followers. Simple as that.
Practice, Practice, Practice
Instead of viewing the 160 character limit as a constraint, see it as an opportunity. Because it’s so short, you can play with all kinds of ideas without using up too much time. Don’t settle for the first idea that comes to mind. Keep playing around until you hit on an idea you’re in love with.
Use All 160 Characters
Short is sweet, but there’s no need to be even more concise that Twitter insists. Get as much detail as you can into your Twitter bio. Every little thing you include is a small hook to attract potential followers into clicking the follow button.
Copy What Inspires You
Get out there on Twitter and read the bios of Twitter accounts you love. When you come across a bio that makes you go “wow!”, use is as a model for your own bio.
Typos and poor grammar make you look unprofessional. Give your bio a thrice-over before sending it out on Twitter.
What Makes You Different?
Sell your quirks. Seriously. Your Twitter bio is no place for bland, corporate jargon. Be honest about your passions and interests. That way, you’ll connect with people who love similar things to you.
Be Keyword Savvy
There will be people who discover you on Twitter through search – as long as you’ve got the right keywords in your bio. Think about what potential followers might be searching for. Using hashtags in your bios can help you get discovered, too.
Put Your Personality On Display
Don’t be afraid to shine! Write with flair, and be as colorful as you dare. Playing it safe is the surefire way to get ignored.
There’s no need to call yourself a “rockstar” a “ninja” or a “guru” (that is, unless you are genuinely one of these). There’s nothing wrong with being flamboyant, but showing off is a turn off.
How much money are you losing because of poor website design?
Conversions are where websites pay off. You must see your site as your laboratory! If you're a blogger might want to gain more subscribers. If you run an ecommerce site you want more sales. Maybe you just need more leads for your business. Whatever the action you want people to take your job is to make it easy. Help them help you.
