Why use Linktr.ee? I’ll confess I had seen it before on others profile pages, but not really looked into how useful it might be for making my online presence easier to navigate. The strap line Linktr.ee use is: The Only Link You’ll Ever Need. Essentially it’s a platform where you can add all your accounts, such as your website, Instagram account and all the other social media platforms you may use. What is so useful though, is you can attach the link to your Linktr.ee page on any, or all of your platforms, so your audience can instantly, and easily, flick to your different sites.
What is also useful is you can also add a link to to any page on your website; I have added by Blog page, but you could add a direct link to your most recent project, or to another website where your work is uploaded. Think of it as a marketing tool, update it regularly and it can keep your audience up to date with your most recent work, just add in your Instagram feed: ’link in my bio’ and you can introduce your Insta followers to your work outside the constraints of social media. Here’s what Linktr.ee say:
- Use it anywhere: Take your Linktree wherever your audience is, to help them to discover all your important content.
- Link to everywhere: Linktree is the launchpad to your latest video, article, recipe, tour, store, website, social post - everywhere you are online.
- Easily managed: Creating a Linktree takes seconds. Use our simple drag-and-drop editor to effortlessly manage your content.
- Safe, trusted, private: Privacy is non-negotiable. Linktree doesn’t track any personal data on your visitors, so your Linktree remains your place on the internet.
- Join the Linktree community: The world’s biggest influencers, creators, publishers and brands use Linktree in their marketing strategy.
The page I use is free, but you can pay to go PRO, whereby you will have many more options for personalising your page and adding extra links, such as a direct SMS link.
Above are the home pages that my Linktr.ee page will take you too. What I’d advise is to keep a cohesive look to all your pages, same profile photo, cover image etc. Your online presence is your ‘brand’, so think about the impression you want to make, especially if your audience can flick so easily between all your accounts. I need to update the look of my website, but I’m planning to do that after my final hand in for my BA, at which time I’ll have an overhaul on my online presence as a post graduate and define my own ‘brand’ as a practicing creative photographer.
