Instagram Reels are on the rise! Be sure to try out creating these fun short-form videos on your Instagram to engage your followers!
In regards to monetizing your Reels: While Instagram doesn't let you add clickable links to your Instagram Reels, we have several ideas for you to try out!
1. Adding Link in Bio Information
Using your Reel's caption, direct users to click on the link in your bio. Then, add a link to your bio there. This can be:
- Your ShopStyle Looks page
- A link to your blog, where the content is easy to find
- A link directly to a Look
- A link directly to a Widget
Pro tip: You can add your handle to the caption. Meaning you can say "Link in bio @yourIGhandle". This way, the follower can directly click on your handle to be taken to your profile, where they can easily click on the link in your profile. It's a simple trick that makes it all the easier for your audience to find your shoppable content.

1. Directly type out an easy URL
If you have a simple blog URL you'd like to direct your followers to, you can type out this URL. However, users will not be able to click on this URL. We recommend doing this in addition to our first suggestion.
