The Instagram bio is often treated as an afterthought-a line or two about your company that you hastily fill out when you first create your account.  In reality, your bio is valuable digital real estate that welcomes users to your profile, conveys key information about your business, and turns  profile visitors into followers  and followers into customers.  But aside from writing a catchy company description, what else can you do to optimize your profile to make the most of your Instagram marketing efforts?
