Instagram landing page Divi

If you have an Instagram account for your business, you’re probably all to familiar with the quandry of what link to use in your bio. It’s certainly one of my enduring frustrations that links placed into Instagram captions don’t actually work as clickable links (I can’t count the amount of times I’ve written “link in bio” now).

Always on the lookout for finding my own solutions to such problems, I decided instead to just create my own, branded Instagram landing page on my website. it gives me the branded element I was looking for, and allows me to have a sign-up form straight on the Instagram link.

I hope it’s useful!

A note: it’s worth checking out the features of something like Linktree before you go ahead and create your own page – it may be the features it offers if worth you paying for it. If you don’t want the monthly cost though, here you go…

Simply the best website tool ever... did that title draw you in? Did it spark a moment of scarcity, or of fear that there's something you should be doing on your website - which you're not? Those kind of headlines generally do that to me. There is so much chatter on...
