Why Bio Link Tools are Effective 

Bio Link Tools

In the Instagram bio section, there is a space where users can display a link to external websites. The same function also appears on TikTok. While these tools are excellent for gaining visibility on other platforms, their functionality is limited. Luckily, there are workarounds to maximize the efficacy of the link creators display in their bio.

First, the limitations of the link-in-bio tool make sense. Some people might have 5-10 links they want to display to users visiting their social media profiles. If Instagram or TikTok allowed that many links, your bio would be unnecessarily lengthy and look clunky. It is convenient for those who might want to link to even two other websites, but for creators whose efforts are broad spanning, it just wouldn’t work.

The solution to this single-link situation is a “bio link tool.” For many users, a Linktree is one of the most accessible platforms, but others choose to be more creative, making an entirely different website that links to all their other endeavors.

Linktree is a service that provides the user with a single link. This link brings you to a new page that displays clickable headlines redirecting you to the user’s YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, or even a personal website. Linktree offers a free plan so that anyone can utilize their basic service.

Using a bio link tool is also helpful because you can keep a static link in your social media bio while keeping the links on your external bio link tool up to date. This is helpful for creators who have affiliate links and need to keep them rotating or update them.

Using Instagram’s story feature to give users a link is helpful but doesn’t provide the accessibility and visibility that a bio link tool can give creators. When an influencer posts a link on their story, it might be because there is a more temporary code or link for their audience. By placing a link in your bio, the link can last for as long as the creator wants or needs it to.

Bio link tools help direct traffic from your social media sites to current videos, websites, and affiliate links. Utilizing this feature can drive traffic up on your other social media profiles and gain creators more views in more places. If you haven’t yet, you should invest in a bio link tool to maximize the power of the one link most social media sites allow you.

What is Your Passion?

“Follow your passion”. How many times have I heard people say that in my life? Honestly, I have no idea what that means. My passions are around rolled up aces over kings and hitting a Pick 5 with a long shot in the last leg. But no idea how that would have helped me professionally. I think it is the same thing with being a creator.

Habits to Leave Behind

Three Habits to Leave Behind as a Creator

Making your own schedule, being your own boss, and creating content you love are just a few of the perks of being an influencer. In 2023, the number of influencers on the market is set to grow by 23.4 percent (TheB2BHouse). To further build your platform and make yourself known, it will be essential to leave behind some habits to develop your platform even more. Here are three habits to leave behind as a creator:

Being a Creator = Being an Investor

Being a Creator = Being an Investor

Everyday, my life is like Shark Tank. Someone stops me somewhere and wants to pitch me. I was playing craps in Vegas a few weeks ago and someone actually tried to pitch me their startup while the dice were rolling. My answer to most of these people is that they really need to invest in themselves before they pitch me. As a creator, your first thinking should be as an investor. That will be your greatest opportunity for big returns.

Entrepreneurial Spirit

Find the Entrepreneurial Spirit

In my thirty plus years of being a founder or investor, I have spent almost all of that with other people who had an “entrepreneurial spirit”. While no one can really define what that means it is pretty easy to define and see patterns in people and why they want to be an entrepreneur.
