Let’s imagine the following.. You have been building an Instagram profile for several months or years. Everything is goinng well. You have a large list of followers and your posts are widely spread through the network. You receive followers’ feedback and enjoy seeing lots of likes on almost every post you share. And here comes the moment when you feel that you can get even more benefits from your good work. One of the best ways to level up your Instagram account is to create a website for it.
On your website you can share tips and tricks, sell items, present clothes, offer jewelry or precious stones or shoes, or some kind of services. In other words you have the chance to be as helpful as possible to all people that belong to your Instagram audience and even reach new audiences.
Furthermore, creating a website for Instagram enables you to monetize your work in some way. A website related to your business profile gives credibility to your brand name and serves for your personal and professional development as well. Another benefit is that no matter what happens with the Instagram platform you will have your own website and it will be under your full control.
Before we begin with the creation process, we will share some knowledge about a few important Instagram specifics as well as some tips on successful blogging.
Instagram originally started as a photo-sharing platform, and since its first appearance in 2010 it has become one of the most popular social media platforms for small businesses. If you are wondering where your website for Instagram will appear on the platform it is in the bio section of your profile.
Another place to present your website will be in your stories. By adding different buttons with call-to-action text like “Swipe up”, “Tap here”, “Click for more” and other you can lead your followers to your website. The rule here is that your Instagram profile should have 10k followers at least.
When you have a website that hosts your online campaigns it becomes easier to navigate your followers to reach an article or an offer selected by you. All you need to do is to tell them to enter the link in your bio under the posts you publish.
For a more advanced stage of the development of your website for Instagram you can consider the help of different link in bio tools to drive more traffic and sales from Instagram. Examples of such tools are Linkin.bio, Linktree, and Lnk.bio.
If you want to learn more about how these tools work and how to set up them for your Instagram account and the website related to it, leave us a comment in the comment section at the end of this article.
