In this blog, we’ll delve into Linktree, a revolutionary link-building tool that transforms your single bio link into a directory of featured links, enabling you to share diverse content seamlessly.
We will walk you through the entire process of setting up your Linktree account from scratch.
We’ll cover everything, from the initial setup to advanced features like integrating commerce solutions and connecting your mailing list.
What is LinkTree?
While sharing content on platforms like Instagram and TikTok, having only one clickable link in your bio can be limiting.
Linktree comes to the rescue, allowing you to create a collection of featured links that showcase your latest products, trending collections, blog posts, and even other social media channels.
How To Access The Linktree Website or Download The Linktree Mobile App
Begin by accessing the official Linktree website. You can do this by typing “linktr.ee” into your web browser’s address bar and hitting “Enter.”
Alternatively, you can head to your device’s app store (App Store for iOS or Google Play Store for Android).
Search for “Linktree” and download the official Linktree app.
How To Sign Up On Linktree
On the Linktree homepage, you’ll find a prominent “Sign Up Free” button.
Click on it to initiate the registration process.
How To Choose Your Sign-Up Method On Linktree
Linktree offers two options for signing up: using your Instagram account or your email address.
If you prefer to sign up through your Instagram account, simply click on the “Sign Up with Instagram” button and follow the prompts.
If you prefer to use your email address, click on the “Sign Up with Email” button.
How To Sign Up with Email On Linktree
If you choose to sign up with your email, you’ll need to provide your email address and create a password.
Make sure to use a strong and secure password to protect your account.
How To Verify Your Email On Linktree
After entering your email and creating a password, you’ll receive an email from Linktree to verify your account.
Click on the verification link provided in the email to confirm your registration.
How To Set Up Your Linktree Profile
Once you’ve verified your account, click the appearance button.
You can add your profile picture, name, and a short bio that tells visitors about you or your brand.
With that task completed, we can now move forward to adding your links.
How To Add Your First Link In Linktree
With your profile set up, you’re ready to start adding links to your Linktree.
Tap/Click the “+ Add New Link” button to insert the first link you want to share.
Consider the links you’d like to feature for your e-commerce brand.
This could include your website, prominent collections, blog or podcast, and even your other social channels.
Upon signing up, Linktree offers both free and upgraded plans.
The upgraded plan offers advanced features like analytics, customization, and the option to remove the Linktree logo.
Additionally, the ability to feature a link becomes available in the upgraded plan, ensuring that your primary content gets the attention it deserves.
How To Customize The Appearance Of Your Linktree Profile
After adding your links, let’s explore appearance customization.
Select the “Appearance” button.
You can choose from pre-made themes or create a unique appearance to match your brand.
With the option to customize colors, fonts, and buttons, your Linktree will perfectly align with your branding aesthetics.
How To Publish and Share Your Linktree Profile
Now that your Linktree is ready, let’s publish it and share it on your social profiles.
Click on “Share” in the top right corner and select “Add Linktree to your socials.”
By following the instructions, you can integrate your Linktree with your TikTok and Instagram profiles.
Once set up, your audience can access multiple links from a single bio link.
The Other Upgraded Features Of Linktree
The upcoming features will be accessible exclusively in desktop mode due to specific settings, such as commerce integrations and email CRM connections, which demand the advanced capabilities of a computer.
Clicking on “Settings,” you’ll find a wealth of options to personalize your Linktree experience.
While each step here is significant, we will focus on commerce integrations and mailing list integrations.
How To Set Up Your Linktree Commerce Integrations
Let’s head to “Commerce integrations” and select “Add new integration.”
If you’re using Shopify, like we are, proceed to integrate it.
After entering your store name and logging in, you can add a sales channel.
Personalize the integration with your brand’s name to easily identify it.
Once completed, you’ll have successfully connected Shopify to Linktree, creating a seamless shopping experience for your customers.
How To Set Up Your Linktree Mailing List Integrations
If you’re eager to grow your email list and have an active social presence, you’re in luck.
An upgraded feature allows email signups directly through Linktree.
This can be especially useful if you have enticing offers, such as a discount for new subscribers or an exclusive free resource.
Keep in mind that Linktree currently supports direct integration with MailChimp.
However, if you’re using platforms like Klaviyo or ConvertKit, you can use Zapier to bridge the gap and make the connection.
How To Set Up Zapier Integration with Klaviyo
To set up a Klaviyo integration via Zapier, visit zapier.com and create a free account.
Through Zapier, you can connect Klaviyo with Linktree, ensuring that the data seamlessly flows between the two platforms.
This integration enhances your email marketing efforts, making it easier to nurture leads and engage with your audience.
Congratulations! You’ve successfully set up a Linktree link to enhance your TikTok and Instagram bios.
By expanding your clickable link options and combining Linktree and Shopify, you’re maximizing engagement and offering your audience a versatile way to explore your content.
Remember, Linktree serves as the bridge connecting your brand with your community, and these integrations will propel your business forward.
