Add a “Link in Bio” to your Instagram profile
October 21, 2022
Currently, the most effective way to increase traffic to your website or online store is through social media, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok. As you may know, social platforms are great for increasing brand awareness, but when it comes time to make the sale, you need to guide them to your site, store, catalog, lookbook, menu, or gallery.
In addition, you need to give the customer a place where they can read your blog posts, collaborations, previews, reviews, podcasts, contests, virtual workshops, and it pays to connect your followers and potential customers on social media with different areas of activation or deeper engagement.
Therefore, today we will talk about links in the bio and how to insert them into your platforms.
What is a Link in Bio?
You’ve probably seen that the phrase “link in bio” has been progressively on the rise and the reason for this is that interfaces like TikTok and Instagram only give you room for a valuable link in your profile bio to connect other parts of your online presence.
Therefore, you either need to rotate the featured link in your profile bio or you need tools designed to tie your online presence together and help you grow from any of your social profiles.
- Design your link in the biography
- A link like this won’t do any good unless it connects to some sort of “switchboard” that can do all the redirecting. Recently, GoDaddy created the Link in Bio initiative with which you can design and publish a beautiful mobile home page for your brand, making your link in bio a one-stop destination for all your most important products, profiles, news, and content in just a couple of minutes.
- So, with your link, you can:
– Quickly and easily create a professional one-page site with customizable templates, fonts, and colors to match your brand.
– Consolidate featured products, events, promotions, and other relevant content in order of importance, and link to different social media platforms to interact more with your audience.
– Use GoDaddy Studio’s image and video creation tools to help promote your bio link to your audience. Your beautifully designed content can now generate more traffic more efficiently.
Why does your brand need a Link in Bio?
As a clever everyday entrepreneur, your online presence is most likely diversified across a few social and/or web platforms. However, adding different links on different channels or giving detailed instructions to followers on how to find your content doesn’t seem like the most eye-catching option.
That’s why you need to create a link that is suitable for all platforms where you want to advertise your brand, products, publications, projects, etc. A universal link that will logically redirect any customer exactly where they would like to go.
Why a Link in Bio, and not a Website?
Keep in mind that your bio link could be a key connector between your social channels and your website. A simple, mobile-friendly homepage with all your most important links in one place works essentially the same way as a website: as a crossroads of all the different avenues that make up your online presence. But it’s much simpler.
Additionally, having a link in your bio is much faster than sitting down to designing a website and requires no design or website creation skills. On the other hand, websites can take a while to navigate and find specific products or information, whereas a Link in Bio boils down to the most important information in one view. It is designed to quickly redirect your customers to exactly what they are looking for.
Can I customize my Link in Bio?
Of course, Because it is a feature that is activated within the GoDaddy Studio mobile app, you will have access to all the images, graphics, templates, and dream tools that Studio offers.
