Instagram username, Facebook, Tik Tok etc… How to choose the best for your company?

Instagram username, Facebook, Tik Tok, Linkedin, etc… There are a lot of social networks that we have to mark our digital presence. So, in this article, I will explain how to choose the best username for Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook and other social networks. I also present 5 online tools for you to check if the desired name for your business is still available.

Important tips for choosing your Instagram username

1. Standardize your username to optimize your disclosure in several places using a single address. Ex: @MyBrand

Evaluate these two possible scenarios.

Do you prefer to introduce yourself like this …

My Facebook é mybrandoffical,
My Instagram é @me.mybrand,
My Twitter é @mybrand,
My site is mybrand.blogspot.com
My e-mail is mybrand@hotmail.com

or …

My site is mybrand.com
Find me on social network like @MyBrand
My e-mail is contact@mybrand.com

Basically, standardizing your username makes long-term disclosure a lot easier. Think big, and build a consistent strategy.

2. Avoid using trendy names like “me.yourname”, “official name”, etc, because some trends become outdated and your name is stuck in the past. Reinforcing the name as “official” sounds very amateur. I        f your name is not strong enough to stand on its own, the word “official” will not help at all.

How to choose the username for Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Here are some tips I found to help you choose the best name for your social network, whether for Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, SnapChat, Telegram, etc.

Don’t just use CAPITAL LETTERS, this may seem rude;

Choose a name as short as possible to make it easier for followers to find you;

If the ID you want to use is already chosen, try using a number instead of the letter or some additional symbol;

Use real, but creative and unique words, to attract your followers;

If you represent yourself, do not hide yourself through marks, choose something personal that shows who you are;

We suggest using your name followed by a word that conveys an idea or characteristic;

Think about the purpose of your Instagram, what is your niche or desire;

Choose a name that causes some effect or feeling in which you are seeing;

3. Check availability on all social networks, or most of them.

You can use a company name generator to get inspired and then create an Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook and other social media profile, but it is important to check the availability of these usernames before posting.

Domain and username search tools for social networks

Below I have listed some tools I use to search for the availability of a username:

Bonus Tip!

Even if you don’t think about making a website yet, register your domain and temporarily point to your account at linktr.ee. After you can clearly define the use of your site, then just change the direction to your provider. In this way, you facilitate its disclosure at a permanent address independent of any social network you are using at any time. In this way, the content that your visitor finds can change, but your advertising address will always be the same.
