Instagram Bio Link Tips

You can edit your link, remove it or add a new one as often as you want—without any limits. You also don't necessarily need to put HTTPS:// or HTTP:// in front of your link for it to be clickable.

Long links look spammy, so if yours is long, consider shortening it first with a link shortening tool like Bitly. You may want to experiment with including the phrase "link in bio" in some of your post captions and stories, a well-known Instagram trend people use to encourage their followers to go to their profile and click on their link.

If you want to promote multiple links to your followers, you can do so with a tool called Linktree, which is very popular among users. It acts as a simple landing page for all your links. All you have to do is add your Linktree link to your Instagram bio using the steps above.
