Growth Hack #1 – The Instagram Linking Loophole You Should Know:
On Instagram, if you haven’t reached the 10K follower mark, the only place to insert a link until recently was your bio. By adding another step to the process of users clicking through, this can be a big problem when it comes to driving traffic to your site.
But, here’s the good news:
You can add a fully clickable link into your IGTV video description!
You can even place more than one link, and tag it with a UTM to see if it’s coming specifically from IGTV.
Too few people are using this feature yet. So, it’s the perfect time for you to take advantage of it.

The pre-stamped cards resulted in 178% more repeat business than the unstamped ones.
