Linking on Instagram: How to Link in Instagram Stories

Over the past few years, Instagram has skyrocketed in popularity, with users spending 28 minutes on average using the platform each day. Over the years Instagram has rolled out various new updates from capability for video, slideshows, and Instagram stories. The question many users have been asking is how to link in Instagram stories. Let’s discuss why this is so important, find out if your brand’s Instagram account has the ability to add one, and what you can do if the option is not yet available for you.



Let’s get started. We have created a new feature called Instagram Link that will allow you to link all of your images.

As we mentioned before, Instagram only lets you add a link in the bio of your profile.  Why not take advantage of it to show all your posts in a clickable way? Doing so, you will generate images that can lead you to a product page, publication or any specific landing page.



We love Instagram, its images, its stories and how easy is to communicate with followers through its audiovisual content. Instagram is the social network with the most active users and is growing at an extraordinary pace.

However, there are also downsides: It’s very difficult to lead users to a specific webpage.

Apart from using a link in the bio, there are a few limited options:

✅ Adding a NON-clickable URL in each content or using apps that allow adding a link that must be inserted in the image’s text.
✅ Through ads that will direct your audience to a specific landing.
✅ Changing the link in the bio each time we publish something new with the inconvenience of having to edit the content to send users to that URL.
