Your bio lets prospective fans know what your account is all about and will help them to decide whether to subscribe or not.
The following tips will help you to make a great first impression through your bio.
Your bio is optional, but you will dramatically increase your chances of growing your account if you take the time to write one.
Remember where your bio is visible
Your ‘About’ information is visible to non-subscribers along with your profile image and cover photo. It needs to quickly create an impression of what subscribers can expect from you.
If someone searches for you through a search engine such as Google, they will typically see the first 160 characters of your bio, so it’s important to get them interested in the first few words you use.
As your bio is so widely accessible, do not use profanity here. Within your feed you are welcome to post anything that aligns with the WorldFans Terms of Service.
Stick to the character limit
You can use up to 1,000 characters in your bio, but not all potential subscribers will have the patience to read to the end.
Focus on creating an impact and giving a realistic impression of your account, in as few characters as possible.
Retain subscribers by being honest
Potential subscribers will be deciding whether to pay to access your content, based on your bio.
Please be honest in your description of what fans can expect. For example, don’t create the impression you are producing adult content if you are not.
If you don’t create a realistic impression of what content you share, your subscribers will be disappointed and choose to leave. They may also mention their experience to other people, and this could damage your reputation.
Explain who you are
A great place to start with your bio is by explaining who you are and what you do.
You could share what your passions in life are and what city you are based in to help your potential followers and subscribers assess if they’d like to find out more.
Outline what fans can expect from your account
Next, give your fans a sense of what content you post and how often. You could also link to a tip menu so they can see the extra content they can request from you.
Some fans may come to your profile excited to see more photos from you; others will be hoping to get to know you better and request bespoke messages or content.
Keep it simple
There’s no need to spend hours agonising over what to write. Keep your bio short and to the point.
If you struggle to get followers and subscribers, then you can edit your bio at any time to try to make it more appealing.
You can also update your profile picture and cover image to make your account more attractive; remember to keep these images clean because they are publicly accessible.
