Many Instagram users have heard about Linktree. Many ones are talking about not using Linktree, and even when you surf the web, the posts encouraging you to not using Linktree, are on the top. Now in this article, we are going to talk about what is Linktree, what does it do and what are the other possible solutions. So if you want to know more about Linktree, keep reading!
What is Linktree?
Nowadays, Each business or even individual has many social media accounts and possibly websites or links. They share their other accounts with their followers in each network to encourage them to follow the other ones too. For example, Youtube influencers share their Twitter and Instagram accounts under each post. However, the story is different for Instagram! Instagram doesn’t let them use links in their pages, except in one place. That’s right, just one link on the Instagram bio. Now, what solutions businesses and influencers, with many links to share, have?
- Constantly change the bio link!
- Design a webpage for this purpose.
- Use third-party apps to create a page with all the links, with some simple clicks.
The first option is neither permanent nor smart. The followers can’t have access to all the links at the same time, and consequently, they won’t be targetted to the other accounts and links.
So it comes to the next options. The second option is ideal for those who already have a website and are collaborating with a web designer. You can ask your web designer to design a webpage with all the links you want. However, this option has both strengths and weaknesses. Clearly, you will have complete control over your Instagram landing webpage. However, it means that if anything happens to your web-server, this link won’t work too. Also, you have to manage all the features you want. For example, you have to use other packages if you wish to have this page’s statistics. Also, you have to ask the web designer for every change, and it is time-consuming. These issues lead many users to the third solution.
Here is where Linktree is used. You can make a simple page with all your links by a couple of clicks. You can add your other social accounts or the links you want to share with your followers. Also, working with the interface is super easy and takes much less time than the previous option. After creating the page, you put its link to your bio, and it’s done!
Here is a sample of Linktree pages. it’s Alex Zaccaria’s, the Co-founder of Linktree, page :
As you can see above, you can add some links in the shapes of buttons, add your social media accounts, and that’s it! Isn’t it too simple? I believe so. The main features of Linktree can be listed as follows:
The free plan
- Adding links to your page.
- Getting the basic statistics of how many times each link has been clicked.
- Choose a background from the list.
The pro plan
- Adding your social media accounts.
- See the number of each link’s clicks in the last week or month.
- Capture your followers’ email addresses.
- Retarget your followers to Facebook by Facebook Pixel ID.
These are the main features. But how much it costs, and does it worth it?
You can use the basic plan for free, but it has limitations. If you want to access all the Linktree’s features, you should get the pro plan, which costs $6 per month. Well, it’s not expensive. Although, you should compare it with its competitors to see whether it worth it or not. We will introduce you to another platform that helps you make this decision. Let’s go for it!
