Enter Linktree: solves the problem of social media only allowing 1 website link in your profile.
Maybe you have 2-10 links, or whatever, that you want your followers to know about. That's reasonable and it makes sense. Linktree gives you a landing page and a unique URL that allows you to list as many links as you want, which is possible with the free plan.
That's fair. It's not a high value need to begin with as there are so many ways to achieve a similar solution. However, if you want to do any sort of branding, it'll cost you $6/month. You'll also have to pay to remove the Linktree logo.
Linktree offersother features that are niche, so it could be worth the cost, but for 99% of users, those things won't matter.
I believe the premium features that will matter the most—for most users—are branding options.
Do it with Notion, for free
With Notion, you can have as many links as you want as well, but you can also embed videos, embed audio, brand the page, put some pictures up there, and generally do a lite more website-y things. This blog was generated from Notion, but that's another subject for later.
- Go to https://www.notion.so/ and sign up for a free account if you don't already have one.
- Once signed in, make a new page by clicking the plus sign next to either the Private or Workspace sections.
- Start typing in the page to say what you want. Paste in links to show what you want. You can see my personal brand landing page here: https://chev.as:
- Once it's ready, at the top click Share, then click the toggle to share it to the web.
- You could put that URL in your social profile right now, but if you want to keep it neat and tidy, you could use one of the many URL shorteners such as https://bit.ly. Paste the link in the field and click Shorten:
The result will look something like: https://bit.ly/3sXyRRf.
- Paste this final link in your social media profiles. That's it.
Taking it further
- If you want to get a custom domain on your Notion page, use Super.so. (not free though)
- Super.so will also let you deploy a custom navbar without any code.
- chilipepper.io will let you make a form, embed it on a notion page, then collect sign ups that show up in a Notion table (free options)
- Zapier.com automatically reads the Notion table of subscribers and adds them (or unsubscribes them) from Mailchimp.
- Notablog lets you blog with Notion (mostly). This is more advanced. You can export a Notion table to flat HTML pages, then use Git to commit them to a live website (like Github Pages).
