How To Add A Link To An Instagram Story

This is what everybody wants. Adding a link to an Instagram story is a fantastic way to drive traffic. But how to do it?

Well, it is not as simple as you might think.

It DEPENDS on what kind of link you want to add.

You can link to your shop, IGTV, or a website. And each of these links requires you to be on a different level of your Instagram journey.

Let’s check how it works more in-depth…

There are many types of links that you can add.

As I mentioned before, it is the IGTV, shop, and a website link.

The problem with that is, you can add those links only if you meet certain criteria.

And to make sure that you know how to meet it, I will break exactly how to add a link to an Instagram story for you…

IGTV Instagram Story Link

This is the one anybody can add to their Instagram stories.

The only thing that you need to have is an IGTV video.

And what is so awesome about it?

Well, if you have an IGTV video you can add a clickable link into its description.


That means you can make them swipe up to see your IGTV video and from there redirect them to your website.

It is a great way to drive traffic.

Instagram Shop Story Link

This is a link most people can’t add as you need to set up an Instagram shop to do it.

So, if you have a business but you don’t have Instagram shopping in place, you can be missing out on a lot of sales.

If you are a freelancer or an influencer, chances are that you are not eligible for Instagram shopping and you will not get access to this link linking to the Instagram shop.

But who cares? Give it a try 🙂

The “Website Swipe Up” Story Link

How to add a website link to an Instagram story

This is probably the thing that you are looking for, but I might disappoint you. If you want to add a website link to your Instagram stories you need to have at least 10,000 Instagram followers.

That’s it. But there is one way you can hack this.

If you don’t have 10,000 Instagram followers you can get your account verified and then you will be able to use it as well.

But NEVER use any of the scam verification services that you can find on Instagram or Google.

You have to do it by yourself.

Otherwise, they will steal your account and you will regret it forever.

Be careful.

And that’s it. There is no other option how to add a link to an Instagram story.

But as I shared above, you can hack this website swipe up using the IGTV video link. Try it out and see how it works.

However, how are you going to use these links?

Use Stories To Drive Traffic

A sales funnel

Now, if you want to turn your Instagram into a source of revenue, you need to change the questions you ask from…

“How to add a link to an Instagram story?”


“How am I going to use Instagram stories to generate income?”

That is the question that matters.

And there are many ways to do that.

It can be affiliate marketing, you can drive traffic to your blog and generate advertising revenue, or you can use the links to drive traffic to your sales funnels.

And believe me, the most money is in the funnels.

A 13-year-old kid has made MILLION dollars using them. Oh damn, when I saw that I was amazed – here is a link to that video, you have to see it.

And if you use Instagram to drive traffic to your own sales funnel you will be able to do it as well.

But how are you going to drive so massive attention to your Instagram stories and bio link that you will make a ton of sales?

Well, there are many ways to do that.

First off – improve your content. Second, create an amazing engagement strategy.

THIRD – guest posting. I know, now you may don’t know what it is.

Well, guest posting means creating a post for another Instagram page and they will share it. That means you can literally reach hundreds of thousands of people for FREE!

Isn’t that awesome?

I personally used it to get my content in front of 230,000+ of my dream customers in less than 7 days!

And what is best? NOBODY teaches it!
