This might not be new to you, but Linktr.ee is a new app to me. I hang my hat on making communications simple, no-nonsense, and straightforward. Technology can play a helpful role in streamlining the techno clutter that accumulates so quickly. I especially love technology that’s simple and doesn’t lose me with complicated directions that make me nervous I will crash my system or lose data. I know, I’m showing my age!
Recently, in a webinar about Instagram I learned about Link Tree. It is a new app (to me) that combines all your links in a single link. I have three separate Etsy accounts, my McCormick L.A. website, a link to my book, plus a landing page for a free document. Instagram allows you to use one link. ONE LINK! One! Singular! Does anyone have just one link anymore?
Linktree to the rescue!
There is a free version for this service as well a premium version which is pretty darn cheap at $6/month with two months free if you pay annually. I opted for the subscription version in order to add a link that leads to my Mail Chimp sign-up. There’s no limit how many legitimate links you can add.
Here are my links all organized in one place now: LeslieAMSmith No matter what I post on Insta (a PR tip or a new craft creation), the link in the bio will help a person navigate to the right place. Fantastic and extremely simple! You do not need to be a techie to figure out this new app. Start here.
Not Only For Instagram
I don’t post on Instagram often, so it appealed to me to use this cool, simple link anywhere. Someone showed me that they use it as their contact page on their website. How smart! It would work well in your email signature block also.
Do yourself a favor and keep your links on one place, together. Consider it an interactive billboard.
