How to create a link in bio page like Manrepeller

Do you want to have control over your link in bio on Instagram without having to use Linktree or paying for something else?

You can create a page like the Manrepeller Manstagram page.

In this video I’ll teach you how I do it. I use Divi theme and WordPress.

If you have no idea WTF I’m talking about you can check out Manrepeller on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/manrepeller/

And this is the Manrepeller’s Manstagram page: https://www.manrepeller.com/manstagrams

What is the link in bio page?

On Instagram you can only have one clickable link and that is in your bio. Sometimes people use tools such as Linktree or Later to create multiple links to overcome this problem. 

The solution I like best is to create a page on your website that links to the posts you mention in your Instagram. 

How do I do it?

It’s super easy really.

All you need to do is create a website page with a 3 column layout and then post your Instagram images on that page. You also need to make sure that when someone clicks the image they get redirected to the page that the post is about. Then make sure you use that page URL as your active link on Instagram.

No need to link this page to your navigation; just link it to your Insta.

Make sense?

How did you go?

I’m hoping that went ok. But if you watched that and it didn’t make sense or you really don’t want to do it yourself, my team and I can create one for you. 

Do want us to make this page on your website for you?

My team and I can whip one of these up for you and maintain it too if you like.

What How Why Facebook Pixel

What How Why Facebook Pixel

Have you just gone live with your gorgeous website? 

What now?

I have a LOT of ideas for things you can do now and the number one thing I recommend is to get the Facebook© Pixel on your website! 

But what the heck is the pixel? What does it do? Why bother? And how do you get it on your website? 

All the answers are in the video below. 

And if you’re getting a website created by me, this is what the pixel is all about and why I think it’s important for YOUR business.

 

You can watch the video here:

If you’re folding washing or on a walk you can listen to it here: 

Or if you like reading, here are the main highlights:

What is the Facebook pixel?

Basically, it’s a piece of code you can put on your website that will track if any Facebook users have been to your site. 

So what? 

Well, if someone has been to your website, you know that they are interested in what you have to offer. And maybe they are thinking about working with you.

If you have the Facebook pixel on your site, Facebook collects that information for you to use when you run ads. You can do cool things like place ads infront of people who have been to your website or get the ads robot to find more people like the people who signed up for your thing or bought your thing. 

Why put the Facebook pixel on your website?

This is the big question.

Becuase a lot of people say “but I’m not ready to run ads on Facebook yet”.

I hear you. But one day if/when you decide to, if you’ve had the pixel on your site all of that time, Facebook is going to have some data about your ideal client already and give you a delicious head start on your ads intel. This will make your ads cheaper and more effective. Yay. 

Data is a business asset. Knowing exactly what kindof people sign up for your freebie or buy your products and having a robot who can find more of them is a dream come true. 

IF NONE OF THIS MAKES SENSE RIGHT NOW, JUST TRUST ME. THIS IS MY JOB. 

How do you get the pixel on your website?

It depends on your website.
If I’m building your site, I will use a plugin to get the code in the right part of the site.

If you’re using WordPress I recommend either “Pixel My Site” or “Header and Footer Scripts”.

If you have a Wix website, instructions can be found by Googling “put pixel on wix site”. I won’t share a link directly because it will become outdated. Google search is a wonderful thing.

If you have a Squarespace site, my advice is the same as Wix: instructions can be found by Googling “put pixel on wix site”. I won’t share a link directly because it will become outdated. Google search is a wonderful thing.

Do want to chat about your website or Facebook ads or the pixel?

I help people create Simple, Beautiful websites. I also love to help people feel empowered about their website so they can use it without having to worry about breaking it!

Acuity Set Up

Acuity Set Up

One of the best tools you can have in place for an online business is Acuity for booking sessions with clients and taking payments.

You can save so much time: instead of sending endless emails or messages back and forth trying to find a mutually agreeable session time. PLUS you can start to deliver services, take payments and operate online using Acuity.

You can watch the video here:

If you’re folding washing or on a walk you can listen to it here: 

Or if you like reading, here are the main highlights:

What is Acuity?

Acuity is an online tool you can use for free or you can use the paid version which enables you to take payments, sync to your calendar and customise the appearance to a greater extent.

Here are the basic steps:

Create appointment and class types

Send the person a url where they will go and choose a time (and pay if needed)

Easy huh?

But there is a bit of set up to get you there. Don’t fret – it’s not too hard and I’ll show you how in the video above. 

No website? No worries….

The beauty of Acuity is that you can start setting up sessions and taking payments before you even have a website or as a way to side-step setting up eCommerce on your website. That’s how I started my business. 

What about costs?

There is a free version which is the one I use. However, you can’t take payments on the free version. I use another tool in my swag for payment processing.
PLUS on the paid version you get calendar sync and customising the appearance more.

If you're wondering whether this is the best tool for your business or now, you could book a free chat.

I’m happy to have a free chat with you to help you figure out which online tools your business needs to use to remain agile and get online.

Even if you don’t think we will work together, I love tea and chats, so go ahead and book 🙂

One more thing:

My team and I can help customise your Acuity scheduling page and appointments if you like. Learn more about Acuity Customisation here:

Have you heard of SSL? 

Do you sometimes get warnings that your website or sites that you are visiting are not secure? 

In this blog I’m going to explain a bit about what SSL is and why it’s important for your website and for browsing on the internet in general. 

Enjoy!

You can watch the video here:

If you’re folding washing or on a walk you can listen to it here: 

Or if you like reading, here are the main highlights:

When is this useful?

Sometimes, you will run a workshop as a one off or a retreat day, or a webinar or SOMETHING that you don’t want to be on. your website navigation all the time. You just want it there now. 

And you want to start doing bits of your own website, to save time, build. your confidence and to NOT have to call the develoer for everthing. 

So this is useful in those cases. You can do it!

How do I do it?

The best way to learn this is by watching the video and working along with me but here are the basic steps if you like: 

Be logged in

Go to “Customise”

Go to Menu

Click “Add items”

Choose custom URL

Add the URL and name then click add

Drag it to where you want it to be in your menu. I like the number one spot!

Click publish and have a look!

You may like to edit the text size of your menu. 

Easy!

How did you go?

I’m hoping that went ok. But if you watched that and realised you really, really don’t want to be doing this stuff, maybe I can help. Book yourself a free chat with me and we’ll see what the team and I can do to help.
