Today’s post is going to be a bit short, but I just have to share this new tool for small business owners who use Instagram for marketing! It’s called Linktree and it’s absolutely brilliant! Linktree allows you to add multiple links to your Instagram bio so you don’t have to settle for just one AND you don’t have to keep changing it every time you offer a special promotion. It’s completely FREE and really easy to use!
Just visit https://linktr.ee/ and sign up for a free account. After you’ve linked it with your Instagram account, you can customize what links you want to show up under you profile. As for me, I included my website, Etsy shop, my contact form, blog (not shown), and Facebook page.
You can even customize the colors! Right now they have a few basic color schemes you can choose from, but a customized color scheme feature is coming, so business owners will be able to have their link pages match their brand (hopefully soon)!
Once you’ve customized your links, you simply add your personal Linktree Instagram link to your profile and people can access one platform that includes all of your links. It’s really THAT simple! If you need to update any of the links, you just log into your Linktree page and make your changes!
If you’re a business owner, I don’t even have to tell you what a game changer this tool is! I have been struggling to increase traffic to my blog and Etsy shop because I have only been able to include the one link in my profile the past. I put my main website link there and all I could do was hope that they’d look at the website long enough to discover the blog and Etsy Shop. If you’re like me, and Instagram is your main marketing platform, then you understand why one link just doesn’t work! Linktree makes it so easy to direct your Instagram followers to ALL of the links you want them to find. So check it out!
