creating a link-in-bio page
HELPING SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWERS TO FIND WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR ON YOUR WEBSITE
As my Instagram and Twitter following continues to grow I chatted to my friend and fellow photographers Stephanie Belton and Andrea Whelan about how to make the link in my bio work more effectively. I found I was constantly changing the link depending on what subject I was talking about (my blogs, workshops, editing tips etc) and there had to be a more efficient way.
We discussed a couple of options for making our links work more effectively including:
1. Creating a specific ‘link-in-bio’ page on our websites
2. Using linktr.ee which has a free basic plan
I decided to create my own page on my website so I could control the final design rather than use the Linktr.ee format. As I design and maintain my own website so it was quite straight-forward for me to do this myself. Also having a page on your own site is always better for SEO. You can see how the final page looks on the phone on the video below.
I created a new page called /link-in-bio and I can already see traffic coming into this page so it appears that my social followers are using it.
