What is a link-in-bio page?

A link-in-bio page is a landing page created to lead visitors to more links than you’re allowed to use in other areas on Instagram. Because the platform doesn’t allow links in photo or video captions, many people will use this landing page as a way to make things more linkable.

However, this page can be used in several ways. Let’s look at an example to give you an idea of how a link-in-bio page works.

Add your links

Once you’ve chosen the right link-in-bio tool for your micro-landing page, it’s time to add your links. You’ll want to add links that can help boost your creator income, promote your other channels, and facilitate a better experience with your Instagram, TikTok, etc.

Some ideas of links to include are:

  • Your other social media profiles
  • Your website
  • Your online shop
  • A digital product you want to push
  • Your latest YouTube video or podcast episode
  • Affiliate links to products you’ve recently promoted
  • A contact page

You can always update your links regularly, as well, to make sure that any links you’ve recently mentioned appear at the top, easily accessible by those who’ve seen your content.

Design your page

Each link-in-bio tool will have its own method of designing your landing page. Some offer templates for you to customize, while others let you create more one-of-a-kind landing pages.

You may even be able to add in photos, information about you/your creative business, and other useful information.

However you choose to do it, make sure your link-in-bio page matches your branding, is visually appealing, isn’t overcrowded, and is easy to navigate. It should improve the overall experience with your creative business on social media, making it easy for people to find what they’re looking for.

Consider asking friends, fellow creators, or even some of your top followers to beta test your link-in-bio page to make sure it’s simple to use and nice to look at.

Add to your social media profiles

Finally, once you’ve added all your links and finalized your page design, it’s time to add it to your social media profiles. While platforms like Facebook and X/Twitter allow you to include links in your post captions, it may still be a smart strategy to use your bio link across all platforms.

Copy the link your link-in-bio tool gives you and place it in your bio on platforms like:

  • Instagram
  • TikTok
  • Pinterest
  • X/Twitter
  • Facebook
  • YouTube
  • LinkedIn

This is because the point of your link-in-bio page is to provide a single place for the most important links and information regarding your creative business. Share it wherever you can in order to increase clicks, reach, and potential income.
