Instagram continus to get more and more attention in the internet marketing space, and there is nothing internet marketers love more than .. links – unfortunately, links cannot be posted on instagram – until very soon. As far as I understand, links won’t be allowed on posts, but they will allow them on stories.
I am yet to see this in action but the links will seemingly be discreet in that they will be hidden behind a see more button in the lower part of the screen. Because of this, the impact from using links probably won’t as great as say on pinterest. It is however, a stop in the right direction, and I understand the reasoning for going “slow”, considering their current reach.
I am sure we will hear a lot more about this and the possibilities that comes with it, in a very near future. For now, we can just wait until this feature is passed on to the rest of us.
