Tips On Choosing An Instagram Username

Maybe our random username generator created an Instagram profile name that resonated with you. But the best Instagram usernames are short and personal. Think about:

  • Your name
  • Nicknames or pet names
  • Hobbies or interests
  • Favourite colour + your name
  • Favourite colour + favourite animal
  • Mood + flower
  • Using alliteration with your first name (like melalalanie or mysticmel

Have a play with the ideas above to see what might work. Sure, lots of Instagram names are already taken, but you can still find one that's well and truly yours. Remember, you can always change your Instagram username after you've opened your account if you don't like it anymore.

Instagram profile tips

When you set up an Instagram account, your goal is to attract attention from other users so that they'll engage with your content by linking posts, following you, and seeing your Instagram Stories.

Make sure you have a few posts up before you announce your account to the world. You may not have been on any adventures recently, but look around your home and local environment for inspiration. Close-ups of your favourite possessions or clothes or flowers work. Taking pictures of food you've made or enjoyed is always appealing. Don't forget your phone filter to create some images that really catch the eye!

Of course, selfies are the images that often draw the most engagement - because people just love pictures of people. See all our photography tips for cool photography ideas to start filling up your brand-new Instagram account.

Tips for how to become an Instagram influencer

Choosing a unique name with our Instagram Usernames Generator is going to help you stand out. What else can you do to build a following?

Maybe you want to use Instagram, one of the world's most popular social platforms, to start making money through marketing campaigns. Maybe you just want more people to see your Insta profile and engage with your posts! Either way, these tips will help you build traction and boost your Instagram following.

Add a clickable link to your bio

If you are looking to get more traffic and sales, you really need a clickable link in your bio. This is how most of your Instagram traffic will come to your site!

Use hashtags... often.

Whatever you post, add a hashtag (or 10). It's a great way to start building your following. For example, a post of your dog could have #dogs #dogsofinstagram #goldenretrievers - and that's just for starters. The more you use Instagram, the more you'll get a feel for the range of hashtags out there, which ones are popular, and how they're used. Don't just go for the really popular hashtags, either. Also include a few niche ones that are really relevant to your post. That way, you could build up followers who will have a real connection with you and your specific interests.

Finally, if you're aiming to become an Instagram influencer, you can create unique hashtags for your campaign - and don't forget to include hashtags for any products you're promoting, along with the brand's @account!

Engage with micro-influencers

Micro-influencers usually have less than 1,000 followers. They have a close relationship with their audience and usually have time to reply and engage with you if you talk to them and like their posts. People trust what they say, because they know micro-influencers aren't big enough to be making decisions on their account for purely business reasons. Make friends with micro-influencers, help them, and they are likely to help you. It's a fun way to network!

Promote competitions and giveaways

This can be a great way to raise your brand awarenes or profile. For example, you could host an Instagram competition where entrants need to follow your account (or your account AND your marketing product's account) and tag three friends. You might then give away beauty products or all sorts of things.

If you're just starting out, you can say you'll do something special for your followers if you reach a certain number of followers. This might be making a funny video, or wearing a costume, or singing a song... something that is cheap to do but provides entertainment for people following your Instagram account.

You can also explore making exclusive offers, like promo codes or offering free gifts with every purchase.

Instagram Stories are the perfect tool for influencers

Everyone loves Instagram Stories because followers feel like they are getting something personal and special from influencers. Instagram Stories are also a good way to get more sales and invite followers to visit product pages, thanks to the 'swipe up' features which lets you add links.

Top tip: You can also add stickers in Instagram stories to tag the products in your posts with links and prices. How handy is that?

Good luck! Keep it fun, enjoy a little extra engagement in your social life and always aim to enrich your life, not get tired of playing the Instagram popularity game!
