Instagram and Twitter aren’t just social media platforms to engage with friends. Small businesses and online retail stores use these social media platforms to reach out to their target demographic. Instagram in particular is a great platform for artists to showcase their work and even get commissions for artwork. If you use Instagram to market your products, it is essential that you make it easy for the consumer to find all your contact info in one place. This includes the link to your online store, other social media handles, or even your IM link. Instagram and Twitter allow users to add one link to an external website in their bio. In order to add multiple links, you will need to use a landing page. In this article, we bring you the top 4 ways to add ‘links in bio’ on Instagram and Twitter.

Instagram and Twitter do not allow you to add more than one link to your bio. While you can always share links as tweets, you cannot post clickable links on Instagram. You can add a link to your story or you will need to use a workaround like Linktree. Linktree is essentially a landing page for all your websites, social media handles, blogs, online stores, and more. Once people click on your Linktree URL in your bio, they will be redirected to the page where they can find all your links. Here’s how you can use Linktree to list all your important pages in one place.
Step 1: Go to https://linktr.ee/ and signup to the website.
Step 2: Choose your Linktree username and hit ‘Continue’.
Step 3: Add your name and categories of interest.
Step 4: Select a subscription plan. If you’re only interested in creating a landing page for all your links, you don’t need a subscription plan. The website offers this service free of cost.
Step 5: Click on ‘Add link’.
Step 6: Enter the URL you want to publish on your profile.
Step 7: To share your Linktree landing page, click on ‘Share’ at the top right corner of the screen.
Step 8: Select the social media platform. You can also simply copy the Linktree URL at the bottom and add it to your Instagram or Twitter bio yourself.
