There are multiple million Instagram profiles out there, but only a few that we can call offbeat!
The ones that do come on as Offbeat Instagram Profiles, have one thing in common. You can call it their secret recipe. They all have one idea, a single thought, around which their brand is built. Every single one of these brands is true to their beliefs. You’ll see what that means.
How to make an Offbeat Instagram Profile?
Find your voice
Your profile should reflect the thought process behind your brand. Every successful brand ever knew why it was built.
Speaking somebody else’s language can only get you so far. Try to find your own words to reflect your thought.
Understanding this concept will be easier by looking at some of the most beautiful and offbeat Instagram profiles to help you open up to the possibilities.
Use your energy into thinking who you really are? What is the inspiration behind your brand? What kind of experience do you offer to your clients?
Don’t think about what others are doing. Think about what is it that YOU are doing and go the extra mile to show it. Be authentic about who you are and what your brand offers. People who resonate with your beliefs will find you.
