Why your Instagram username is important
Your Instagram username is even more important in 2021.
This is because Instagram pays attention to the keywords in your username.
New followers can find you thanks to your username.
And if you want to become an influencer, brands can also find you thanks to your username.
If you cannot use all the keywords you want in your username, that’s okay.
You can add the keywords in your Instagram name instead. They count as keywords too.
