In Episode #047 of Digital Marketing Strategy Podcast, Digital Pratik is going to discuss the 3 Steps To Insert A Link To Your Instagram Stories. Now before we go any further let’s talk about Who Has Access to Adding Links in Instagram Stories? Like many marketing features on Instagram, clickable links in stories were rolled out first to verified accounts. In May 2017, however, Instagram began quietly expanding this feature to more marketers on the platform. Clickable stories links are now also available to business profiles (not personal profiles) that have over 10,000 followers on Instagram. There doesn’t appear to be any geographic restrictions to clickable stories links, and as the feature gains in popularity and usage, we can hope Instagram will continue to roll this feature out to even more users. Adding a link to your Instagram story is easy to do in just a few quick steps! #1: Start Your Instagram Story You can take an image or video directly within the Instagram Stories app or swipe up on the Story screen to import any image taken within the last 24 hours. #2: Add the Link URL To add your link, click on the chain link icon at the top of your story. The chain link icon appears at the top of the Story page to add a clickable URL. A new window will appear on your screen, allowing you to input the link destination of your choice. Type in the complete URL address and tap on the green check mark (on Android) or “Done” (on iOS) to save the link. Instagram Story analytics do not currently track URL clicks, so to measure your traffic and conversions, you’ll want to use a link that you can track separately. You can use google analytics, bit.;y, clickmagick or google url shorter Once you’ve successfully linked a URL to your story, the chain link icon will appear highlighted to indicate your story has a link. #3: Continue Editing Your Story Add any other content including text, stickers, and filters to your story, then upload it to your profile as you would any other story. I highly recommend you include a call to action (CTA) in your story text to direct your viewers to access the link. Common CTAs include “Swipe up to see more” or “Tap ‘See More’ to visit our website.” While the See More prompt is clearly visible, some viewers may not notice it if they aren’t looking for it. Less-frequent users of Instagram may not even know to look for it, which is why it’s good to include a SWIPE UP call to action. Leave some feedback: -- What should Digital Pratik talk about next?
