My friend Jesse started a Instagram-related service called Tap Bio, and I want to tell you about it, because I’ve been using it since January, when it was still in beta, and I’m kind of obsessed. If you’ve ever found yourself telling someone on Instagram to “tap the link in your bio,” you’re going to LOVE Tap Bio. For reals.
Think of it like a mini-website, in story form, that everyone can access without ever leaving Instagram. The best way to tell you about it is to show you, so if you’re on your phone right now, go to my Instagram profile and click the link that says: tap.bio/designmom. From there, swipeable cards will appear — within Instagram — that I’ve customized with links and images.
For example, I have one card that shows any of my Instagram posts that relate to my blog posts — all clickable! Another card has links to my Facebook and Pinterest and Twitter pages. Sometimes I’ll create a card that links to an essay on someone else’s website. Other times I might create a card with a link to some awesome new kid socks I found at Uniqlo. Or I might feature an oldie but goodie post from Design Mom.
