Before we get to the benefits of using a bio link tool. We first have to explain what it exactly is so you can get understanding why it’s so popular.
What is a bio link?
Your bio link is the part of your profile that contains a link to a website, where you can share more about yourself. For example on Instagram, you can change your bio link by clicking on your profile then selecting ‘Edit Profile’. You can view the changes by heading back to your profile and clicking the bio link.
When you create a website, you’ll see another box called “Bio.” This is where you can write something about yourself or include a link to more information. To find someone else’s bio on Instagram, you can either click on their name above a post in your feed, or search for them. Once you’re on their profile, their bio link will appear below their name.
Only One Link
Bio links are becoming increasingly popular on Instagram, as the social media platform only allows you to include one web link in your bio. Many individuals, brands, and influencers are frustrated with Instagram’s algorithm because posts no longer appear in a chronological order as before.
Instead, posts are judged by the algorithm for relevance and by how much your followers have engaged with your past posts. If your post’s bio link is no longer visible to your followers, this could be problematic for publications, brands and bloggers who are generating a lot of content.
Bio Link Tool To The Rescue
The bio link tool fixes the problem of having one web link that takes you to one piece of content. Instead, it creates multiple web links which take you to different pieces of content all on one page.

Adding link to Instagram Stories
Instagram Stories is a fun way to share direct content that only lasts for 24 hours. Increasingly, people are using Instagram to watch Stories (which is an authentic experience) rather than posting on the main feed page. You also have the option to add a ‘Swipe Up’ to your Stories. A Swipe Up is a link that takes the Story viewer off-platform and to the piece of content you want your users to see.
Adding a bio link to your Story allows viewers to easily find your content by including your bio link. This is great for adding stickers or Gifs that say “link in bio” so that viewers know where to find more of what you have to share!
We hope that this post gave you a bit more understanding of what a bio link tool is and how it is so beneficial. We’re always building new features for Dope.Link to help with sharing what’s important to you.
