Your Instagram bio is essential as it provides the most important info for your business. In this space you can give your full business name, location, opening hours (if applicable), address and a link to your website.
Most businesses now have an online presence, whether they are e-commerce websites or not. Therefore adding a link to your website on your social media pages will assist your followers to make the next step and buy online or view more information about your product or service. You can even update the link so that it takes your followers to different web pages each time depending on what you post.
