July 05, 2023

Let’s start with the recent news: You can add up to 5 links to Instagram Bio. Zuckerberg acknowledged that the option to have multiple links in the bio had been highly requested by users.

But still, we know that changing the link in bio on Instagram every day is exhausting, not at all user-friendly, nor recommendable, and let’s admit it: Nobody has time for that.

This is why at Publer, we developed an advanced and valuable feature that will end many daily struggles for social media managers with ambitious goals. One link per every important URL you own which you can add on your Instagram link in bio. 

Allow yourself to get huge traffic, boost engagement, grow all socials and blog visitors, track clicks and boost sales with an easy-to-navigate mini-website. 

Make Your Unique Link in Bio Today with Publer

Transforming your Instagram into a mini-website takes only 1 minute. Imagine connecting all your Instagram images to a relevant article! Impressive right? 

If you can’t visualize how the link in bio feature looks like as a mini website, let me show you how it appears on Publer:

All images or videos on Instagram now have clickable functionality, allowing users to choose which link they want to add. We will discuss this feature in more detail later.

The new lifehack is posting IG images that are easily clickable, and users can quickly read articles, get informed about a new update, read real-time reviews, and purchase products they love. 

So, here’s a scenario: You’re sharing an article about the benefits of using a hydrating creme, and the next day, you want to share the disadvantages of using the wrong ones. 

In this case, you need to change the link in the bio daily so people can click on the right and coherent article.

We’re avoiding this time-consuming action. You’ll only have one unique link in your bio, which people can click and be directed to another Instagram-lookalike grid view where each photo is clickable.

Tap on Post Tooltip

Links in Bio can be used for articles, songs, items to purchase, etc. In our case, we’re sharing blog articles only – that’s why we’re highlighting the tooltip: Tap on a post to learn more. If you own an online shop, click to purchase the item.

Add Up to 15 Other Important Links

They’ll appear as Story highlights on IG, but on your new dashboard, they’ll be clickable. Cool, right? Add all your essential URLs, such as other socials. In our case, we’ve added all our socials (Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc.), Help Center, Blog, etc.

The next step is to add links to posts that have been shared already. So, practically, you need to go to the Calendar and select Posted. Click on each post that needs a link attached (even if that was shared one year ago), and as soon as you add a link at the bottom of the post, you’ll see it on the Link in Bio dashboard.

And the cool thing is that you can schedule new posts with the attached link! We’ve already added our blog articles links to the past posts and can’t be happier to never change the link in the bio again. They’re all in one dashboard now!

Then, check all the already shared posts that need a link attached. This guide can be of great help for setting up the link in bio landing page.
