Pros and cons of adding Spotify link to the Instagram bio

Now, let's look at the pros and cons of placing a Spotify link in the Instagram bio.

+
The link will always be visible in your profile.You can add just one link to the Instagram bio. Mainly, artists place their songs on different music platforms so that users can choose the most convenient way to listen to them. In this case, it's challenging to select which link to add to the bio.
Users can only listen to your track, as Spotify opens on Instagram. In other words, there is no way to add your song to the playlist.

One more way to share your Spotify link on Instagram

Generally, artists post their tracks not only on Spotify, but also on Apple Music, BeatStars, Pandora, Bandcamp, etc. This is done so that fans can choose an appropriate music platform, and of course, it helps to widen audience coverage.

But you can add only one link to the Instagram bio. And how to choose which link is better to attach? Or how to tell your fans about other social networks? Don't worry, this limitation can be circumvented using the multilink service. We're talking about Taplink. It joins all your links in one URL. 

What you need to do is to create a page and place links on it. Then you add the page in your bio. These are examples of how such pages look:

Another Instagram limitation is the number of characters in the bio. There should be no more than 150 of them. On Taplink, you can tell everything you think is necessary, without limiting yourself.

There are more than 20 blocks for creating a Taplink page: text, avatar, social networks, messaging apps, video, music, etc. We will use blocks for links, social networks, and music.

In this case, you should use the service for multiple links. It doesn't define your limits in the number of links. Moreover, you can add a timer before the release of a new track, as well as start the sale of concert tickets.
