A link on Instagram on WhatsApp, Viber or another messenger will allow subscribers to write to you in 1 click.
If you add only a phone number when designing your profile header on Instagram, the subscriber will have to take extra steps. To contact you, he needs to save the number in contacts, open the messenger, find you among other contacts. In the process of these steps, some of the potential customers fall off. Didn’t have time or forgot to save the number, got distracted, changed his mind, accidentally closed the page – minus the sale. The WhatsApp chat link shortens those steps to two – click and write a message. Less unnecessary actions – more requests and requests.
- No blocks. The limits work as if you were doing it all manually.

- High speed. You can put up to 1000 likes and 500 subscriptions per day.

How to add a link to your Instagram profile using a third-party service
MeConnect is a free service for creating multi-link. By default, you can add only one clickable link to your Instagram profile. The service solves this problem. It allows you to place several active links in your profile at once:
- to social networks (Vkontakte, Facebook, Odnoklassniki, LinkedIn, Twitter)
- messengers (Whatsapp, Viber, Telegram, Skype)
- photo and video sharing apps (Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest),
- video hosting (Youtube, Vimeo),
- English-language sites (GitHub, Reddit),
- portfolio at Behance,
- google and yandex maps.
The subscriber clicks on the MeConnect link and gets to a separate business card page with buttons. Each leads to its own social network or messenger.
How to set up links in the MeConnect service
We go through registration – enter your username, password, email. After registration, an email will be sent with an activation link – click.
We fill in information about ourselves – you can immediately see on the right what the finished page looks like. Below is the link to embed in the Instagram profile.
In the “Design” section, select the photo size and set up the background – you can choose a color, picture or gradient fill.
In the section “Messengers” you can create 26 links. We fill in the necessary ones. Add a separate link to the website if needed.
We register the numbers of Yandex.Metrica, Google.Analytics, pixel numbers of Facebook or VKontakte to track traffic.
In addition to the link, the service has a code to be inserted into the site, as well as a QR code. In the “Statistics” section – detailed information on clicks and views of the business card.
If you wish, you can completely delete the account. If you need more options, then it is better to choose a paid multi-link service for Instagram.
Use links to messengers to get more requests from subscribers and increase sales. The link allows you to contact you in 1 click.
If you need a lot of links, use the multi-link service.
