One of the important things while promoting your business on Instagram is providing your location on the bio. You must add your exact location on the bio so that the customers can find the routes for your location without any difficulties.
It also helps potential customers find reviews and comments on your business on Google Maps to boost your brand’s visibility and creditability. You can add a location on Instagram Bio only by using the mobile app. The feature is currently not available on the web version.
