We often receive the question: «Are you a copy of Linktree?». Therefore, we decided to write this article and finally answer this question (spoiler: the answer is NO!). Now let's talk about differences between Taplink and Linktree.

There are a lot of tools that solve the problem of limited Instagram BIO. One of the most famous is Linktree, which appeared on the market in 2016. This tool allows the user to place several links in BIO. It is a useful service, but over the past few years, Instagram has changed significantly, especially in terms of business goals. It is no longer enough to place links to your store, nowadays entrepreneurs need to tell the world what their business is all about. To do this, you need texts, images, videos, marketing features, in other words - a full-fledged landing page. 

Taplink solves this problem by allowing you to create a full landing page, not just a set of links. The main goal of Taplink is to help small businesses grow faster and more efficiently, in other words, to receive more orders and increase conversion rates. There are also smart-links on messaging apps that redirect your customers directly to the chat with you. That is just a small part of the Taplink features. Here is a rough example of how average Taplink and Linktree page looks like:
