Did we guess right? Well, then know that you’ve come to just the right place at the right time!

In the next paragraphs, we’ll show you what the requirements to be met to use the sharing of links in Instagram Stories are, and we will show you, in a practical way, how to use the feature in question (which unfortunately is not yet within everyone’s reach). Finally, should any problems arise, we will also explain what you can do to solve them.

Add an Instagram Story Link with Link Sticker

You can add links to Instagram Stories in an extremely simple and intuitive way. You don’t have to have at least 10.000 followers as it used to be. Instagram now encourages its users to use the stickers on Instagram. That’s why you will need to use the Link Sticker. You only need to create a new Story, then you will need to use the Instagram Link Sticker.

Time needed: 1 minute.

Here is how to add a Link Sticker to your Instagram story:

  1. Start the Instagram app on your device.

    Log in if it is necessary.

  2. Swipe left to get to the Stories page or tap on your Story icon.

Frequently Asked Questions

It wasn’t available to add links on Instagram Stories for users that don’t have at least 10.000 followers. However, with the recent update, it is not necessary anymore. So, update your app and you should be able to see the link sticker on Instagram.

Stories count for a day should be around 10-20 if you don’t want to lose your followers’ attention. Fewer stories can make them forget you, and too many of them can get you unfollowed. 

Unfortunately, you can’t set your Stories to stay lesser than 24 hours, but you can delete them manually before they expire on their own.

The only way to see someone’s vanished Instagram Story is by their Instagram Story Highlight, only if they’ve added it to them.

As a general rule, the more followers you have, the fewer followers watch your Stories. On average, 4% to 4,4% of the followers watch the stories of business or personal brand accounts.
