If you are a brand and do not have a proper optimized Instagram logo, You are missing a great deal!
Have a good Instagram profile picture is a must! Not only personal accounts but all the big brands have it!
This doesn’t mean you should put a crappy looking company logo. It should fit the little circle well and should come out as your identity!
This is the basic building block of a great Instagram account!
Optimize your logo for Instagram Profile Picture?
1. Make sure your logo fits the circle!
I know every logo is not a circle. But here’s an excellent example of @Natgeo Instagram account!
Their logo is a straight rectangle and not circle. Still, they have managed to get the best of 100X100 space.
2. Utilizing as much space as you want!
The first account made less usage of the space, but here on their second account, @NatGeo has a black background and their yellow rectangle all over the area!
I recommend this to the big brands as people are already aware of their brand and you can quickly identify them on Instagram.
For the brands starting out, if your logo doesn’t fit into the circle, you can go with initials of your brand or chop the logo to fit inside the circle.
For mine, I would go for BP or a logo that would fit perfectly in the small circle.
3. Look Clean and Tidy
I know there’s not much space to cover but a clean profile picture can go far way long.
Make sure you don’t have a way too big or way too small logo.
If you are going with Initials type of the logo, then you should go with a black or white background and your brand initials on it!
Logo setting is a one time job. There are not many options for boarding on Instagram compared to Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. So might as well make the best use of it!
NOTE: You cannot change Instagram profile picture on PC.
