How To Add a Link To Your Instagram Story

Updated: May 13, 2023

Adding a link to your story can greatly increase your engagement. So, how do you add it to your story?

1. Click the + Icon in the top left of your home page to add a story to your account.

2. Choose your image or take a new one and then find the "link" icon at the top of the screen.

3. If you have under 10k followers, you can only link to IGTV videos.

TIP hack the 10k followers barrier by adding a link on your IGTV video. It may not be as direct, but it gets the job done for now! Don't worry, it should be added soon. Originally, it was only for people with 1M followers or more.

From your IGTV video, add a link in the description! The link is a clickable text so currently, that's the best way.

4. Make sure you add a call-to-action! Invite your viewer to do something.

How do you do this? Even though a “see more” sign will appear at the bottom of your story, people will still need to be directed to click it.

Here are some examples!

“swipe up for more”, “swipe up to shop”, “see more” or you can always doodle arrows that point to where they need to swipe up!
