DIY Linktree for Instagram Bio

Learn how to make your own Instagram landing page with these four easy steps.

One of my biggest frustrations with Instagram is that links aren’t clickable in captions. Like, why IG?!? Instead, you have to link in bio or encourage your audience to send you a message for a direct link. If you’re over 10K followers, you get the handy swipe up feature. That’s nice, but sometimes you still want to link to multiple pages from your Instagram.

For example, I always want to link to my new recipes. Well, I also want to link to my email subscriber form. If you’re a fashion blogger, you probably want to link to your profile. Having a simple landing page with multiple buttons is a great way to drive traffic. So why would you want that traffic to go to a site like Linktree? Instead, use this quick DIY Linktree for Instagram Bio tutorial. No coding involved!

How To Create Your Own Instagram Landing Page

Step 1: Create a new page

Choose a URL similar to links or instagram-links. On my page attributes settings I am able to select no parent page and use the landing template. If you do not have those options, simply ensure for that page only the sidebars are removed, as well as the header, footer, and menu.

Step 2: Create buttons in Canva

Canva is a great option for those who do not have Photoshop. I use both but prefer Canva for these graphics, as I can duplicate and download them easily.

Determine your full width content and create a button that works with that dimension. I use 800×100.

Once you decide on design, font, and color options, you can click “copy page” to make a duplicate button within the same project. Do this for all the links you need. Save and head back to WordPress.

Step 3: Upload button photos

Now that your landing page is set up and you have the photos, upload them in the order you want them to appear. Once uploaded, click on each button and select edit. A popup will appear where you can center align and link to a custom link. Do that for each button. You’re almost done!

Step 4: Publish page and link in bio

For the final step, simply publish your page, make sure all the links work, and paste your new page URL in your Instagram bio! Be sure to let you followers know. Maybe even walk them through the different pages so they know how to navigate.
