Top 8 link in bio tools
Many people think that building an online presence with tools like Instagram is a piece of cake. I mean, how hard can it be to upload a couple of pictures each day, right?
But anybody who’s serious about their social media presence knows that it’s actually a lot of work. It takes a lot of creativity to come up with fresh content every day. Building and maintaining a following takes some serious dedication.
Building your brand isn’t a full-time job, but it does take a lot of effort. Instagram gives you one link in your bio. You can link to a website, but who has time to build a website?
What you need is a place to bring your online presence together without a lot of work. These are some of the best.
1. Jotform Apps
What if you want more than just a list of links but you don’t want to bother with a whole website? Jotform Apps is your best bet. This app builder that lets you build mobile-first web apps.
But Jotform makes doing that just as easy as any link builder on this list. Adding links and making them pop is just the beginning, though.
Jotform Apps gives you multipage navigation and tons of features. Jotform’s best features are form based, making it perfect for membership signups, fan feedback, and even selling merch. You might as well monetize.
There are no fees for creating apps. There are, however, limits to the number of payments you can accept. Upgrade to a paid plan, starting at $39 per month, to accept more payments.
Linktree is the OG of IG bio-linking services. It’s simple to use and among the most popular with Instagram influencers.
Linktree does what it promises. It lets you put the addresses of your entire web presence under one roof. It’s quick, easy, and affordable (with a free plan and paid plans starting at $5 per month). If all you need is a list of links, Linktree is a no-brainer.
Carrd’s focus is on beauty. If you want a good-looking link page, Carrd is an excellent choice. On top of that, the price is right. It’s free to use forever for up to three sites. And the Go Pro plan will cost you less than $2 per month.
How big is your brand? If you feel confident enough in it, hoo.be might accept you.

If you’re accepted, you’ll find out how much hoo.be costs.
If you want a super catchy domain for your linking service, you’ve found it. It doesn’t get more memorable than about.me.

6. Flowpage by Flowcode
The combo of Flowpage and Flowcode is one of those peanut butter and chocolate situations.
Flowcode is a tool for creating QR codes. The most popular QR codes link to web pages. But why stop at just one link?
That’s why the company created Flowpage — to let you pack in even more links. Between the two of them, you have real-world and digital linking tools.
You can build pages and QR codes for free. Paid plans offer more pages and codes, as well as more customization options, and start at $5 per month.
If you want to sell digital media, then Hypage is here for you. Hypage is more of a sales tool than a simple linking service.
It can help with digital sales and donations, but it also lets you accept recurring membership payments. Even better, Hypage doesn’t squeeze you dry with transaction fees. Plans start at $19 per month.
Taplink is a step above Linktree. It’s mostly a link listing service, but it has a few more features than Linktree. For example, you can create multiple pages, place multiple links in a section, and accept payments. The final result is more of a micro-website.
A free plan is available. Paid plans start at $36 per year.
