In today’s world, where everyone’s life revolves around likes, comments, and hashtags, we all probably use more than one social platform. And let’s face it, managing multiple links on social media can be a nightmare! This is where Linktree comes into play. You have probably already seen the Linktree in the bio either on Tiktok or Instagram. In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about Linktree, from its features to design, and how to use it effectively for your brand.
What is Linktree App?
The main idea behind Linktree is to simplify the process of sharing multiple links with your audience. Rather than sharing numerous links in your social media bio, you can create a single Linktree landing page that includes all of your important links. This can be especially useful for businesses, influencers, and content creators who want to streamline their online presence, track engagement over time, and monitor revenue. More than 30 mil people joined Linktree, including celebrities like Selena Gomez and Pharrell Williams.
How to make a Linktree?
All you have to do is claim your username and sign up. You can create multiple Linktree accounts with a single email. For a better user experience, I suggest using the browser version of Linktree on the desktop to create the landing page. On the desktop you will be able to see real-time edits on the right of the screen, on the phone it is a bit of a hassle. Then you can download the Linktree app on your phone for tracking the engagement and monitoring the analytics.
How to add an email link to Linktree?
In the “Links” tab click the button Add Links and paste the URL of your social media page, the store, Spotify playlist, whatever. There are a dozen of link suggestions you can explore. There are two ways of adding links either in the Links tab or in the Settings. Now, to add a link to your email, go to Settings, then tap Social Icons, then add an Email link.
As an example let’s add a couple more useful links for my website IkigaiPost, Bonfire affiliate page, Youtube channel, and Payment. As you can see, I added the link to the Bonfire Merch Platform and the second link is for this blog IkigaiPost. Down below I have placed my social media links to Youtube and Instagram profiles.
How to design Linktree?
Now, my favorite part. Design. The app offers various customization options such as themes, colors, and fonts. For this page, I chose a Lake white theme, default buttons, and a cartoonish avatar from the app Persona.
What is Linktree Marketplace?
Linktree has recently launched a marketplace that offers a directory of more than 30 integrations or link apps. This new feature provides users with a range of options to enhance their Linktree pages and connect with their followers in more meaningful ways.

Linktree offers both free and paid plans, with a range of features to suit different needs. Here is a breakdown of the pricing and features of Linktree:
The free plan includes the basic features of Linktree, such as unlimited links, analytics, and the ability to customize your Linktree page with themes and colors. However, it does not include advanced features such as email and SMS integration or the ability to remove the Linktree branding.
The starter plan costs $5 per month and it has additional design customization options, scheduling links, individual link analytics, device-based analytics, and a few other features, but it still lacks the SEO settings and the ability to remove the Linktree logo.
The Pro plan costs $9 per month and it has advanced analytics, email and phone collection (super cool), integrations with email opt-in, Zapier, Google Sheets, SEO settings, and the multiple admins feature.
The Premium plan costs $24 per month and includes all the features of the Pro plan, plus additional features such as priority support and data export. That is pretty much it, they are not a necessity, so I would just go with the Pro tier.
Pro and Premium Plans have advanced analytics that gives a ton of insight into web traffic. Let’s cover in detail what Linktree is capable of:
Individual Link Analytics shows the click history for any period in the past 365 days with click-through rates, revenue conversions, device info, location, and referral source.

Mailing & Phone Analytics shows the number of email addresses and phone numbers registered on your page.
