WHY UNIQUE USERNAMES FOR INSTAGRAM ARE IMPORTANT
On Instagram, one of your main goals is to gain the attention of others users and have them engage with your account by liking your posts, following your account, and viewing your Instagram Stories.
One of the easiest ways to stand out on Instagram is to choose a unique username.
But what is the power in an Instagram username? Well, let’s say that you leave a comment on another Instagrammer’s post and they have a lot of followers. Your comment is interesting, funny, or just very long. It manages to get the attention of other Instagrammers in the comment section and even the person who posted the content.
If you happen to have a unique username that is interesting enough to make others want to click over to your account… you’ve won the Instagram game.
You can always change your Instagram username after starting an account. But it is always best to do your research before starting a new Instagram profile so that you can choose the best unique username possible.
