5 Best Link Sharing Tools for Instagram and TikTok

Posted February 9th, 2022 in Social Media. Tagged: , .

Instagram and TikTok are two of the most popular visual platforms for brands and influencers to grow their online presence. Building an audience on these platforms is a lucrative endeavor for those who know how to monetize their content.

The biggest challenge, however, is getting users to move from your content directly to the link that allows you to earn an income. Instagram and TikTok only offer their users a single link in their bio’s.

Managing that link is incredibly important if you wish to direct users to all of your monetized websites (product pages, YouTube, course, etc.). Enter the link-sharing services from the likes of Hypage, Linktree, Tap Bio, and more.
