Why would you need to build your own Instagram Landing page I hear you ask? Well, we already agreed how terrible it is to use LinkTree so we won’t go into too much detail about why it sucks. Missed that post? Click here.
But here is a super quick summary of why you NEED your own Landing Page.
1. External website links drive traffic away from your site
completely if you use LinkTree
2. Bye bye to ugly LinkTree branding
3. MORE time on YOUR website
4. Absolutely NO limitations
5. Track your sites analytics!
So what do I do instead?
Wonderful. I’m glad you asked actually!

FOUR. Click Edit with Elementor
FIVE. Once you are on the Elementor page builder, click the grey button to review the templates
SIX. To import your own template, click the arrow at the top of the pop-up as shown below. Then select the right file from your computer
SEVEN. Once you’ve uploaded the .json file, scroll to the bottom of the templates (if you have a long list like me) to locate the template called ‘INSTA Links Page’. Click insert.
EIGHT. It will ask you whether to import the document settings, click no.
That’s it! You should now see your new instagram landing page design on your newly built page! You may wish to make some tweaks and edits depending on your style/preferences!
