Link In Profile

 There's a nifty little site called Link In Profile that can help you add more than one link to your Instagram account. It's not free but if you are a blogger/instagrammer making a few bucks on the web, then you can probably afford $10 a month for this treat.

Basically you use Link In Profile as a storage source for the links you want readers to go to from your Instagram account. You would keep your main link in your profile as usual, but when that is clicked it would go to an unlimited scrolling page featuring all your links with a heading and an image.

Isn't that cool?

Do you know why Instagram doesn't allow clickable links in your posts?

You cannot add a clickable link to an Instagram post. Instagram removed this feature due to the high level of spam posts and affiliate marketing posts that were being published on the platform. Or so they said. The bottom line is they want to get paid, so if you are willing to pay for an ad you can get a clickable post. Of course, we don't want Instagram to turn into Pinterest, so that's ok.

If you don't want to pay $10 per month (after the free trial period), I suggest Link My Photos.

LinkMy.Photos provides an ideal landing page for your Instagram profile link. Your followers will be taken to a photo feed with all your clickable Instagram photos, so even your previous website and YouTube links from older photos remain relevant. You’ll also get meaningful metrics for how many followers are viewing your photos and clicking through to your links.
LinkMy.Photos offers a free plan for your most recent 3 linkable photos, and inexpensive plans for unlimited photos and multiple accounts.

Do you have a secret way to add links to Instagram? We'd love to hear your ideas!
