If you want it done right, you better do it yourself.
This definitely applies to your instagram link menu. Why should you make your own linktree menu for instagram? Because it’s so much better to host your own. You’ll reap the SEO benefits and it’s easy if you have a website (that you’re already paying for with hosting and etc. Why pay for ANOTHER service)
We get it. Linktree is wildly popular – but the menu and custom features all direct towards their website. This means that you don’t capture any of the traffic that your website could get from Instagram. It’s great for SEO and rankings as well because traffic is definitely a ranking factor.
If you have your own website, the steps are really easy. Just create a page with buttons centered in the middle of the page.
Here’s what it looks like for us to create the menu:
If you’re working from wordpress, you can minimise the top banner and the footer from your page menu. Squarespace is pretty simple as well – just make sure that it’s the only content on the page and use the button blocks! You can just set your Header to Disabled. Sometimes you can even skip this step if your main banner isn’t too large.
You can customize all of the links and the styling. And since it’s on your own website, you can easily change them. The moral of this blogpost? STOP PAYING FOR LINKTREE – Save your money and get SEO value from your instagram traffic!
