Today, I’m going to help you prevent that from happening to your Instagram page, by explaining how to add a Link Tree to your Instagram account. It’s simple!

If you use Instagram you already know that you cannot directly link in your post descriptions. You will often see text in the post description that says “see link in bio.” You have likely visited an Instagram account that displays several links within their bio, using a service like Link Tree. I’m going to show you how to add Link Tree to your Instagram account today. It’s free and takes about 10 minutes to set up.
