Here’s the thing, Linktree is incredibly unreliable. If you use the free version, there are only a few colors to choose from, so it’s not customized to your brand. When I tried to use the service, it was constantly breaking or crashing. Certain links would disappear without warning or wouldn’t link to the right place. It was a disaster!
I don’t recommend using Linktree.
Well, if you use Showit for your website, I’ve got a video showing you exactly how I made mine.
Here’s a step-by-step video that shows you how to make your own custom link page! (click HERE to be taken to this step-by-step video)
(If you don’t use Showit, do some research and see if your platform offers an option for making a link page.)
You probably have more than one place you’d like to direct your Instagram audience! Maybe you have a new service you’re promoting, a new blog post, and a lead magnet. Since you only get one link in your IG bio, creating a custom link page will let you advertise all of your offers from one link!
A custom link page will let you optimize your Instagram traffic and let your content live longer than the feed.
With your own custom link page, you can:
-Control your links
-Use your own custom branding
-Use Google Analytics to accurately track clicks
-Boost your SEO
A custom link page is incredibly helpful for maximizing your reach and helping your audience find the right resources. If you aren’t quite ready to use a custom link page, at the very least make sure your website is linked to your Instagram bio!
I am a firm believer that there should be a strategy for most facets of your business, and with creating an intentional LINK in Bio, you can determine the client’s journey (their workflow) with you by creating not only a visually appealing Link in Bio (your own version of Linktree) BUT you can also have more control over the SEO, and have more impressions on a landing page YOU own (which is great for Google analytics)!
