How to Make Clickable Links on Instagram

If you're a blogger, affiliate marketer or independent business owner,  generating traffic with a post link is impossible (unless you pay for advertising) 

Instagram provides one hyperlink which can be found in your Bio.

What most people do is to write in the description of a post 'Click the link located in my bio.'  The problem is, they have to keep changing the link on their bio and there is no record of the previos posts and links . 

Here is my solution:  My bio link goes to a page on my personal blog.   This page contains all of my Instagram posts in a grid.  Each picture is hyperlinked and can go wherever is appropriate.

Why Your Instagram Bio Link Should Go to Your Blog

  • You can edit the page
  • Quickly post an image and add a hyperlink
  • Your brand remains congruent.
  • All of your posts can have links.

The downside is the free version does not allow branding.  And the paid version does not show images.  But, it is a quick work-around if you do not have a blog.  

You could also create a free website using Squarespace or Weebly.

In addition, you could have your Bio link be directed to your Pinterest page or your Facebook Fan page.​
