How to Create a Professional Social Media Bio

Social media is a great way to connect with people, but if you want your posts to be read by new audiences, it’s important that they know who you are. A professional bio is the best way to introduce yourself and let others know how they can get in touch with you. But what should it contain? How do I write it? Is there a template I can use? Here’s everything you need to know about creating a professional social media bio:

What should a professional bio say? 

Your professional bio should include the following information:

Your name, title and company


How to get ahold of you (phone number, email address or social media profiles)

What you do for a living (a short description of your profession) and how long you have been doing it.  If there are any specialties or certifications associated with your profession, mention them here as well.  Finally, if there are awards that have been given to people in your field that you have won too!

Focus on useful details

Your bio is a great opportunity to show off your personality and expertise, but it’s also important that you get straight to the point. If someone were looking for a  (insert your expertise here!!), what would you want them to know about you? How long have you been in business? Are there any specialties or areas of expertise? Is there anything else about your company or services that might make them want to hire someone like yourself?

In addition, try to avoid using jargon or buzzwords unless they’re absolutely essential–and even then only sparingly! And while we’re on this topic: no matter how funny or clever it might seem now, never use emojis in place of actual words. You should also keep in mind that whatever information is included in your bio should be easily digestible by anyone who reads it–so don’t write something so dense with technical details that people need an advanced degree just understand what makes up someone in your field’s daily life!

Finally…make sure there’s room at the end so people can contact YOU!

How can people get a hold of you? 

The next step is to share your contact information. This can include your email address, phone number and social media links.

Email: Include a professional email address that you use for business correspondence so that people can reach out to you in the future. You may also want to include a personal email if they’d like additional details about how they can get involved in your project or if they have questions about it after reading through your bio (this might be helpful if someone wants advice on starting their own business).

Phone Number: If someone has questions about something specific in the bio, having an easy way for them to ask those questions will make things easier for everyone involved!

Social Media Links: Share these as well so that people who enjoy what they see in this bio can follow along with updates from other channels as well!


Takeaway: A professional bio should be easy to read and understand. It should also include a look into your personality without being too wordy. Don’t forget to include contact information so people can reach out!
