Add More Links To Your Instagram Bio
As you’re posting to your Instagram account, you may have noticed that you can’t insert clickable links in your posts.
People would have to remember the link, or copy and paste the link into their browser to access it, and most people would not take the time to do that.
The only way to have a clickable link in a post is to pay to promote it.
Instagram gives you a link in your Bio that’s clickable, but it’s only one link. You can’t have a link to Sell Avon and another one to Buy Avon, or even for a specific product.
But I have found a convenient and free tool, Linktree.
Once you’ve signed up for Linktree, you add your Linktree link to your Instagram Bio.
When users click your custom link, they see a page with multiple links you want to share, such as links to Buy Avon, Sell Avon, Avon Sweeps, and so on.
Here’s how to use Linktree:
Step 1 Create an account
Just go to Linktree and sign up with your Instagram account.
Step 2 Add as many links as you need
Once you are logged in with your new account, you will see a screen where you can add your links. Click on + ADD NEW BUTTON/LINK. Then, paste the desired URL and name it. Make sure your link title has a clear call-to-action!
Here’s how I use Linktree for my Avon Business:
Although you can have as many links as you want, I recommend a maximum of 6. If you add more, then the list tends to get really long and people will actually have to scroll down to see the full list.
Step 3 Paste your Linktree link into your Instagram profile
Once you have an account you will receive a custom Linktree link. This will be the link that you will add in your Instagram Bio.
First, copy your Bio link. After that, paste your link in the Website section of your Instagram profile. Done!
Link Settings & Appearance
Now that you have your link setup, you can explore the settings. There are several things you can do with your links to customize the page the way you like.
Click on the Settings tab and you can change the options for theme colors and the way you want your page to look. There are limited free options, and if you want more you’ll need to pay.
One distinguishing feature is that your Linktree profile link is branded with your Instagram handle, even if you use the free version.
The free version also includes unlimited links, reporting on the total number of clicks for each link, and three Linktree themes.
The Linktree paid version costs $6 per month and includes a daily breakdown of your link traffic, team access, custom buttons and styles, a custom title, the ability to schedule links, and a way to add your Facebook pixel and retarget Linktree visitors.
But the free version works very well for what I need. I love that I can have links to Sell Avon, Buy Avon, and even to join the current Avon sweeps!
Now when you tag #LinkInBio there really can be a link to whatever that exact post is talking about. 🙂
