How to put Linktree in Instagram bio-Instagram’s features come and go, but one thing that hasn’t changed is that brands and creators can only share one link in their Instagram bio and on Instagram Stories.
One way to fix this is to make a Linktree and add it to your Instagram. Find out how it can help you share a number of good links.
Plus, you can see examples of good work from brands that are already using the tool.
What does Instagram’s Linktree do?
Whats Link Tree? Linktree is a link in your Instagram bio that leads to a landing page with multiple links to content related to your business, like your website, a video, or even an affiliate discount link.
“Link in bio” is a phrase you may have seen if you use Instagram.
This means that someone is telling Instagram users to go to their page and click the URL in their bio. By getting people to click on these links, Instagram users can often drive traffic to other websites, like a YouTube channel or landing page.
You might be wondering why using this tool can make a difference on Instagram. We’ll talk about this below.
Should you market your business on Instagram with Linktree?
Linktree lets you get the most out of sharing on Instagram. In the past, brands and creators had to pick their most important link and put it in their bio. Most of the time, it was a website.
As the platform changed, it was only natural that there would be a need for more ways to link to other sites.
Users want to link not only to their website, but also to other social channels, recent campaigns, new product launches, or partners.
Even though Instagram Stories, live streams, and the Shop tab can now be linked, there are still no options in the feed. Users have to use apps like Linktree to put all of their most important links on one landing page that is easy to read.
If you don’t, you might have to change your bio all the time and decide which link is more important.
In addition, Linktree offers analytics, which you can use to see which links are generating the most clicks.
Did we also say it was free? Even though the paid version has more features, like custom landing pages, scheduled links, animation, and more, the free version has everything you need to get started.
Linktree probably isn’t for you if getting traffic from outside your site isn’t a top priority. It does require maintenance to make sure you don’t share so many links that users are overwhelmed by their options.
If you want to use the tool as part of your Instagram strategy, let’s talk about how to make one next.
How to Create a Linktree
- Go to linktr.ee and sign up for a free account.
- Follow the prompts on the screen to describe the type of account you have.
- Choose the business plan you like best.
- Once you’ve chosen a plan, look around your dashboard and add new links.
- There are two ways to start adding links to your Linktree:
When you click “Add New Link,” a card will pop up, as shown in the image below, where you can fill in the title and URL.
Or, you can click on Explore Link to see different link options based on the content, such as music or video links.
No matter which way you choose, the finished link should look like the picture below.
Once you’ve added all of your links, you can make changes to each card using the icons at the bottom of the tiles.
If you have a free account, you can upload a thumbnail of your own tile, restrict the link to certain audiences, and see how many times your tile has been clicked.
With a paid account, you can do everything that you can do for free, plus you can mark certain links as “priority links,” schedule when certain links go live, and see more detailed analytics.
Add all of the relevant links you want your Linktree to have.
After adding all of your links, you can start making changes.
Note: The creation tool lets you see live previews of what your final product will look like.
- Click the “Appearance” tab in the top left corner of your screen.
- In the profile window, add information that is related to the links you are offering, such as your profile title, a short bio, and an image that is related to your business.
- On the tab called “Themes,” choose a Linktree theme that fits your tastes. The image below shows how a Linktree can be changed.
If you have a paid account, you can design your own theme and change the colors of the background, the shapes of the buttons, and the fonts.
Under the settings tab in the header at the top left, you can make more changes to your Linktree. You can add support banners, ecommerce integrations, and social media icons that link to your other social profiles.
With a paid account, you can do everything we’ve talked about so far, plus add email or SMS mailing list integrations.
When you’re happy with how your Linktree looks, you can add the link to your Instagram profile.
