Day 2 – How to customize your profile

I’m told the key to gaining my first 1000 followers on any social media is by making a great first impression. My profile has to look shiny and nice!

Make sure you have all the following completed before publicizing

  • Username
  • About/description
  • Location
  • URL – Your website address
  • Profile picture/image
  • Cover photo/logo
  • Have 5-10 posts ready to give people a taste of your content

Aim for consistency across all social media channels – use the same logo and profile pictures

  • Check out this always up-to-date image size chart at Raka Creative
  • Create your own social media headers from templates at Canva

Writing your social media bio

  • Show, don’t tell: “What have I done” often works better than “Who I am”
  • Tailor your keywords to your audience
  • Keep language fresh; avoid buzzwords
  • Answer the question of your potential followers: “What’s in it for me?”
  • Be personal and personable
  • Revisit often

Your task is to write a bio and create a profile
