  1. Add a website link to your biography. Instagram lets you include one clickable link in your bio, so make sure you use it effectively. To add a link, go to Edit Profile and type it in the Website text box.
  2. Include a call to action in your photographs. You could run this to a freebie and add the link in your bio. For instance if you wanted to giveaway a cookbook, create an eyecatching graphic using canva. Add the call to action, download our free cookbook today. In your post add “click the link in bio to download”
  3. Include a url in your Instagram videos. Videos on Instagram generate three times more traffic than images, so it’s definitely worthwhile to invest in using more videos.
  4. Run an Instagram ad campaign. Facebook recently opened the doors to advertising on Instagram. I’m currently expermenting with this so another post on how to set them up coming soon. Clickable links in Instagram ads give you an opportunity not only to be creative, but also let your followers learn more about your services.

I’ve now got 1257 Instagram followers, AWESOME!! . It’s also great to see more interaction on Facebook . I really like the quotes you’re putting up.
