How to add multiple links to your Instagram profile

How to add multiple links to your Instagram profile:

Instagram provides a way to add one link to your profile. It is actually useful if you want to drive traffic to your website or any other platform outside Instagram.

Instagram doesn’t allow users to add links with a post. This makes it difficult to drive traffic to other platforms.

For example, if you have a Etsy store and you are posting an image of a product on Instagram, you don’t have a way to add a link on the post.

You can add your store link on your profile and with the post description, you can mention that the store link is in your bio. People can move to your profile and click on that link.

But what about multiple links?

For example, if you have multiple stores or if you have another YouTube channel or your facebook page, there is no way you can add all of these links to your profile.

If you want to add multiple links, you can either:

  • Create your own website and add all of these links on your website or
  • Use a third-party website to list your lists.

In this post, I will show you how to use a third-party website called linktree. This is a popular website and it is used even by users with millions of followers.

What is linktree:

Linktree is a website that helps you to create a free webpage for you where you can add different links that you want to share. It can be easily integrate with social media sites like instagram, Twitch, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. You need to share the link of the page that you created here and anyone with that link will get all other links you have added on this page.

For example, you can create a linktree page with your YouTube, Facebook and your etsy shop URLs and you can add the page link on your Instagram profile.

Anyone visiting your profile can click on that link and click on other links on that page to check your accounts on other platforms.

Linktree provides a unique URL for each user. So, you can match it with your name or your Instagram handle.

Linktree provides different other features as well like Analytics, customizable pages etc. They have a pro plan which includes many more extra features like customizable backgrounds, changing the style of your page buttons, social icons etc.
