Link in Bio Alternatives for the D.I.Y. Rock Star

Loosely accompanies Gab & Jam 289. Link in Bio Alternatives for the D.I.Y. Rock Star

They only give you ONE opportunity to share a link on Instagram. Here are some Link in Bio alternatives.

What’s a "link in bio"?

They only give you ONE opportunity to share a link on Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Twitter. This is your chance to shape what you want to highlight for a person who wants to know more about you and maybe even see your tour schedule or buy your merch. Hopefully, when we’re done, you’ll understand why it’s important to use that link in bio option. –MANY people use Linktree, but in this post, we share some OTHER options to better utilize this valuable resource.


4 Compelling reasons to utilize

one of these link in bio alternatives:

1. Centralize links

This helps so that one link you’re given does the MOST good for you. For instance,

if you have a new release out, you can point folks directly to it. Or if you are on tour, you can share your schedule—and ticket purchasing opportunity—directly to folks who might wander upon your profile. That’s just ONE of the benefits of using a landing page for a link-in-bio opportunity.

2. Organize content in an attractive way

It is aesthetically pleasing and allows you to prioritize the links that you think are the MOST important FIRST. –As far as providing a quality customer experience, this is an important thing to consider. You can make the button certain colors and add your logo and even add backing music on some of the apps. All of this helps folks who go there navigate to where else it is that you want them to go—like to check out your latest video or to your latest merch bundle or to your latest music reviews.

3. Customize appearance

You can make it look as close to your brand as you would like, depending on what service provider you choose. This is important when you consider the customer experience. –Again, if everyone else is using a certain look, you will want to make sure that yours captures the attention you seek by making it look the way you look.

Music is NOT your most important asset:

4. Access to Analytics

What this means is that you will know when, where, and how often folks are clicking on your links within the link-in-bio landing page, which is very helpful. By having this information, you can better locate where your fans are, which lets you know what location to market to when you have something else to offer.


Here is a list of the few that I discovered while doing research for this post:

1. Shorby

Allows call-to-action buttons

2. JotBio

In addition to all the other services, it allows you to invite folks to sign up for your email address

3. Pallyy

Allows you to work across multiple social media platforms, so that you don’t have to log into each one). It also allows social media planning.

4. Website landing page

A dedicated page on your own website (which is what we use) You simply design a page for whichever set of links are most important to share for whatever given project. —We have different ones for each album, for our podcast, and for our empire, as a whole. ( ) We like it, because we DON’T have to CHOOSE which links to swap out at any given time, since all the pages can stay active. We simply share whichever page of links is important to wherever we need to share. —I heard about this idea when we first started the blog and set up our first page, which we STILL use today. (Here’s our BIG Prejippie Landing page: )

Here's why you should have your own dedicated website:

This is the MOST common choice for MANY D.I.Y. Rock Stars. It has a free plan, but it does not allow the same customization options that you can get from some other options.
