Are you wanting to link your Instagram followers to your blog posts?
Are you frustrated by the fact that you can’t include a URL in your Instagram Posts?
Or that when you tell your followers to “Click the link in your bio” you have to update the link, making it no longer relevant for past content?
2 Simple Solutions!
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you’re in the right place! We were in the same boat until recently!
And we have come across 2 simple solutions! Best part is, you only need one!
So read on and take your pick! You’ll never have to update the link in your Instagram bio again! Unless of course, you want to!
Option 1: Linktree
The first option is super simple.
It literally took Grace 5 minutes to set-up! It’s mobile friendly and we highly recommend it for anyone who wants to update the link in their bio quickly and easily!
It’s a service called Linktree. It is free to use in its basic form.
If you want to brand the Linktree interface to match your website’s branding or pre-schedule links for upcoming Instagram content, there is a small monthly cost. We think you’ll love this option!
Option 2: MaxButtonsPRO Plugin on your own Instagram Links page
The second option is our personal favourite to link Instagram followers to our blog posts and it’s the one we use!
It isn’t much harder, but it did take a few more minutes to set-up. Again, Grace took this on and within maybe an hour tops, she had set-up an “Instagram Links” page (which you will find on the top menu of this website if you want to check it out) and created button links to content that we have been directing our Instagram followers to.
The link in our Instagram bio points to the “Instagram Links” page, which we update quickly and easily anytime we want to direct our readers to another post!
The neat little buttons were really easy to set-up and customize using the MaxButtonsPRO plugin which we’ve installed on WordPress.
We highly recommend flipping for MaxButtonsPRO. It allows you to add greater functionality and customization to your buttons! We think it’s pretty fabulous!
