Get More Traffic from Instagram (for Free!)

The link in your Instagram bio is valuable real estate — you can use it to drive traffic to your website, product shopping pages, or to help your followers find out more about your services.

But with only one link to play around with, it can be difficult to stay on top of updating that URL every time you want to direct your followers to a certain place.

That’s where Linkin.bio by Later comes in — you can tag your Instagram posts with any link you want (think product pages, articles, and blog posts!) to turn your feed into a clickable, optimized landing page.


Today we are releasing a free version of Linkin.bio, so everyone can start driving more website traffic and reaching their sales goals through Instagram with Later. 

You can set up Linkin.bio by Later right now for free – no trials or credit card needed!

 

But it goes even deeper than that — with Linkin.bio analytics, you can find out exactly how much traffic you’re driving from Instagram, and what content is converting the best.
