1. Using Link in Bio

You've undoubtedly seen it a hundred times - your favorite Instagram account shares an image about something fascinating, with the final line being "click the link in bio". Accounts with 10,000 or more followers can share links through their Stories, but those that are still growing their following must utilize the single link in bio to direct followers to a product page or a piece of content.

If you only have one link to share with your audience and it's a short readable link, you can just put it in the Instagram profile but if it is not short then you can potentially use link shortening tools such as listed below to make it look better before adding it to your profile.

In most cases you will want to use “link in bio” tools which are used widely on Instagram: brands may promote their current sale, news article, product collection, or other items in their content while also effectively linking to them all, prompting people to click the link on each relevant post. You can also rotate other links for the most recent material by maintaining evergreen destinations such as your homepage or prominent lead magnets.

2. Link in Bio Tools

Fortunately, there are several link in bio tools that let you combine all of these important links into a single URL and share them via a single URL. This will result in a custom landing page with all of the relevant links you wish to distribute.
