  • Upload a photosetup-links-in-instagram-stories-4

Click on camera icon, on the top left part of you screen to start your instagram story sharing. Once you take, or upload a photo from your camera roll, ad text, emoticons, gifs, on the top of the screen.

It can be any newer photo, not older that 24 hours, or a new photo that you take, using boomerang, or filters.

  • Click on the link button

Once you have edited your story, you are ready to add link. Link button is located at the top of the screen. It looks like a chain.

Not, this option will appear only if you have more than 10,000 followers.

  • Add link

Once you click on the link button, new window will open up, and you will type the link, or copy paste URL you would want your followers to visit.

You can add the link that would take them directly to the item you want to show them, not just the general link to the ‘home’ of your website.

Press ‘done’, and publish your story like you usually do.

  • Call to action

When you add links to your story, you can call your followers to action. You can ask them to ‘swipe-up’. Because, if you simply add a link, and it’s going to show them ‘see more’ option, that doesn’t mean they are going to click on it and open it. Add text, doodle arrows, add inviting text to it.

And that’s it. It is a pretty big deal to bring more presence to your account, but it’s simple to use. Be consistent, and enjoy.
