How to add your ‘Insta Links Page’ to your Showit template

Create an Instagram Links Page in Showit in Less Than 10 Min

Once you purchase your Insta Links Page from our shop, you’ll be given a unique share key that will allow you to add your new Insta Links Page to your Showit account.

Once you have that share key, copy it and head over to your Showit account.

In the bottom left corner of Showit you’ll see your name or your brand name. Click it to open the site settings. Then select the “Add To Library” button.

Add a design to your Showit account - Tonic Site Shop

Paste your unique share key and click enter.

A preview of the Insta Links Page will appear with a blue “Add Now” button at the bottom. Click “Add Now” and close out of the success message.

Now that the Insta Links Page is added to your Showit account, we need to add the page to your current website design.

On the left side of Showit, click on the + sign next to “PAGES” in Showit and click “Select New Page”.

Now, click on the “My Library” tab and click on “Insta Links Page by TONIC”.

Click “Links” under pages, select if you want to ‘apply your fonts and colors’ or ‘use original design’. Then click the blue “Add” button.

Just like that your new Insta Links Page has been added to your Showit template!

Now it’s time to customize your new Insta Links Page.

How to Customize Your Links Page Branding

Customizing your new Insta Links page is a breeze. Let’s start from the top and make our way down the page.

Logo

The Insta Links page comes with a text box that says “Your Logo Goes Here”. You can use these text boxes to type your brand name, or you can delete these text boxes and add an image.

If you’re using the text boxes, double click over each text box and update the text to your name or brand name.

If you want to use an image logo, select each text box and delete them. Then add your logo image to the hero canvas and align it to the center.

Updating Links

Now it’s time to add your links to the list. These links should be the most important pages on your site.

Tonic Tip: You can update these links often! If you’re offering a special or want to direct traffic to a new blog post, add it to the top of the list!

We created a list of 9 links that you can keep or update depending on your business and link needs.

To update any of the text boxes all you need to do is double click over the list item and re-title.

Let’s say you want “09. CONTACT ME” at the very top. Instead of moving that text box, just re-type it in the first text box (01. CONTACT ME) and then update the text of 09 to something else.

Need more/less than 9 links? No worries! Simply select the unused text boxes and delete them or copy and paste from the existing list to add more!

Highlight CTA

This section is created to highlight an important page, blog post, freebie, or offer on your website. You can add a link you’ve already linked in the list above, or add something new! Where do you want your users to land on your website? Link to it!

Scrolling down the page you’ll see another Highlights (2) section. Use that section to highlight something else important on your website.

About Section

The truth is that showing your face and talking about who you are leads to more conversion. Add a great headshot, a short bio, and link to your about page using the “about me” text!

Reader Favorites

Want people to get lost (in a good way!) on your website? Link out to blog posts! Listing out a few of your top blog posts will drive more traffic to your site, lead people to useful information, and let users find even more great content on your blog.

This section will not update automatically. You’ll need to manually change the blog post images, type out the title, and link the “read more” text to the individual post.

It’s ok to shorten the post title here. Make it short, sweet, and to the point.

Freebie

The freebie section is great for adding an opt-in to a popular freebie or newsletter. If you want to know how to add a Flodesk opt-in form to a page on your website, check out this post!

Social Links

Use this section to link out to other social media platforms your business is using. You can easily update the icons to different platforms, or remove the ones you’re not using!

Footer

If you want to add your main website footer, we need to delete the “FOOTER” canvas from the Insta Links Page since its just a placeholder that says “ADD YOUR WEBSITE FOOTER HERE, IF DESIRED”

Click on the three dots (…) next to the footer canvas title and click on “Delete”.

Now, click on the three dots (…) next to the page title “LINKS” and click on “Add New Canvas”.

Click on your Footer canvas under “Site Canvases” and click the blue “Add” button in the bottom right corner.

Showit will add your site’s footer to the bottom of your Insta Links Page.

Add Your Insta Links Page to Instagram

Once your new Insta Links Page is customized, you’re ready to add your links page to your Instagram Bio.

First, make sure that your page name is something simple like “Links”. You can name your page anything you’d like but it’s important to keep it simple. When someone sees the link in your bio, you want them to click it.

Here are a few page titles that work well

  • Links
  • Start Here
  • Learn More

Next, preview your site by clicking the “PREVIEW” button and make sure it looks great on desktop AND mobile.

Once you’re done with the design and have previewed the page, publish your site by clicking on the blue “Publish” button in the top right.

Grab the link to your links page and head over to Instagram!

Add your link to your Instagram bio and watch the traffic roll in!

So, you need a website. Your current choices are: a ) a boring, big box template that does nothing to showcase your particular brand of awesome, and that you’d need to be some sort of code wizard to change, or b ) plunking down your life savings and your firstborn to hire a designer and a cranky developer, who will spend months and months of precious time cranking out something arguably “custom” you may or may not love in the end.

We’ve redefined the website template. And not only what it can be, but how it can look, what it can do, and what it can do for your brand.

THE MANIFESTO

Right? Nope. Enter option c ) Tonic Site Shop. Throw out everything you know about templates: these are cocktail-inspired, completely customizable websites designed for the kind of people that give a damn. Simply select your “cocktail,” download, customize anything −ANYTHING− you want, go live, grab the champagne and wait for the compliments ( and clients ) to roll in. They’re designer-made, and tailored just for you. Your old website is already jealous.
