If you’re a blogger or just on Social Media in general, I’m sure you have heard of Linktree. If not, Linktree is a free site that helps you optimize your Social Media traffic. You can link all of your socials all in one place. Which is perfect for Instagram as it will only let you have one link in your bio.
If you’re a blogger, Linktree could possibly be hurting your stats! When someone clicks on your Linktree link, they are redirected to Linktree. Not your blog! You could get all that traffic automatically directed to your blog instead of Linktree itself.
Just imagine the views your blog would get if you redirected your followers to your blog instead of a third-party site.
Here’s the link to my link page here in WordPress!
In my link page, I have my list of all of my Social Medias. I much prefer using WordPress to showcase my links because I can change it however I want to. I also have listed three of my most recent posts! Which means more advertisement for my blog.
You can also change it to fit your style. For free! If you want to change up your Linktree, you have to pay $6 a month.
Create Your Own Link Page!
I’m going to try and make this as simple as I possibly can. It can sometimes get frustrating, I’m not gonna lie. When I first made my landing page, I was cussing at my screen and I was getting aggravated for no reason.
Create The Page
Name your page whatever you’d like. Instagram Landing Page. Links. Name it whatever your heart desires!
You’re going to want to make sure you choose the option Instagram or Social Page template. Go the page attributes and you should be able to change that template there.
Make sure you publish the page and not just save the draft!
Create A Menu!
You can add anything you want to your link list. It doesn’t have to be just your blog links. Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and whatever else you may have! Just go to the custom links section and you can add whatever you want.
Now you need to add your list to your page! Go to Appearance > Widgets > Social Page. Add the widget Navigation Menu and choose your menu that you made. You can also add other widgets to this page as well. I added a recent posts section to mine.
That should be it! If you have any questions or if you need help, please leave a comment below and I can try to help you out as much as I can!
