What’s Your Book Cover? 📕

How many times have you purchased a book purely because it had a great front cover? 🤔
This immediate judgment is a natural object of the human judgemental system.
In nature, it’s the part of our brain that protects us from danger or lures us towards an item of value 🧠
In the modern world we tend to use the same part of our brain to judge whether we do or do not want to invest time into something, your Instagram page acts as the title of a book.
People will use it to measure whether your account is worthy of the following or not 🎈
Take into consideration things such as your profile picture, bio, and firs 9 tiles of content.
If it’s all mix and mash then you’re likely going to lose that person’s interest immediately 👌
There’s an age old saying
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover
However first impressions count for a lot
And without a beautiful front cover and grat title, people often won’t make it to the blurb.
Your Insta is your book cover
You have 4 seconds to catch their attention
Your profile picture, BIO and feed posts all need to impress people more than the thousands of other profiles on the Instagram shelves.
The perfect front cover:
- professional and eye catching profile picture
- concise clear BIO stating what service you offer
- strong and consistent branding across all feed posts
- a CTA and a link to website page
Ask yourself these questions:
Does your branding represent your business?
Would someone know what you do within 4 seconds?
Would you be tempted to view your stories?
When you scroll down your page does the design and branding flow?
