Here's a cool #InstaHack on how you can add a link to your Stories content without the need for 10,000 followers.

Why don't I have the link option o my Instagram Story?

It’s a question many people ask. Instagram says you’ve got to have 10k followers in order to be granted clickable links. 🙄  But we say you don’t have to wait for that. Read on to discover our cool hack for adding links to your Instagram Stories without the need to have 10,000 followers.

Here’s a great tip to get a link in that we use here at Brightspark…

Get to know them. Learn to love them. And thanks to Brightspark, learn to use them as link click buttons.

For this nifty #InstaHack to work, you’re going to want to use the ‘@Mention’ sticker.

The ‘@Mention’ sticker allows you to tag an Instagram user in your Instagram Stories. When this sticker is tapped, the viewer is taken to the tagged user’s Instagram page. This can be very useful for the smaller Instagram accounts who don’t have the ‘Swipe Up’ option.

See this hack in action…

This idea came about when we were promoting a special offer for one of our clients, NOAH Veterinary Clinic. With only a couple of weeks on Instagram, we didn’t want them to wait around to hit the magic 10,000 followers and get the swipe up button.

Here’s what we did…

We created an image on Canva to promote the offer.  A regular Insta Stories sized image.  Then we added a ‘@Mention’ sticker over the logo up at the top – and shrunk it down so it wasn’t too visible but still clickable!

Finally, we added a call to action at the bottom of the image – “Click here to book” – with a hand-drawn arrow pointing at the logo. When people tap the logo, they are taken to NOAH Veterinary Clinic’s Instagram page where they can clearly see a Book Now link in the bio.

So here’s how it flows…

Who needs 10,000 followers anyway?
