Which link-in-bio service works best for content creators?
There are many different services you can use. But today, we will be talking about Linktree and Snipfeed.
As an influencer, one of your most common phrases is probably “Check out the link in my bio!” That link is the gateway to your brand, your website, and in most cases, how you will earn your money. So you want to make sure you have the best link on the market.
In the early influencer days, you had to replace the link each time you had a new product to promote or a blog post you wanted to share. This was cumbersome and could even be confusing for your followers who were expecting to see one link and would then see another.
But now, there are services that help you create a customized landing page that has all your links in one place. A landing page, in digital marketing terms, is a single web page designed for one specific task. In this case, your landing page is designed to lead your followers and potential consumers to your links.
Founded in 2016, Linktree is one of the earliest link-in-bio tools on the market. With over 30 million users, there’s a reason it’s one of the most popular landing page services.
How does it work?
Once you sign up, you can have your Linktree set up in a matter of minutes. Simply choose a name, input your links, and you can have your customized link ready to share.
You can add unlimited links to nearly every social profile out there. You can also add links to your personal webpage, or other Internet destinations.
You can even connect with apps such as Paypal, Square, or Spring if you have an online business. This allows consumers to easily make purchases directly off your page without ever having to leave.
Customize your page to your liking with free templates and themes. Below are a few of your options
For more customization options and access to exclusive features, you can upgrade to one of their 3 paid plans. However, it’s important to keep in mind you can continue using Linktree free of charge without ever having to pay a dime.
The three pricing plans are as follows:
The Starter plan is $5 USD and allows more customization options, as well as the ability to spotlight and schedule links.This could be helpful if you have a promotion going on.
The Pro plan is $9 USD a month and is known as Linktree’s “VIP” plan. This allows unlimited customization options, including the ability to design your own template, and allows exclusive features such as becoming a part of the Amazon associates program, which allows you to easily integrate your affiliate links. You also gain access to advanced analytics such as conversion rate, which is valuable information for anyone who runs an ecommerce store.
The premium plan is $24 USD a month and is designed for larger businesses. You gain access to exclusive content, direct support with Linktree, access to data for longer than a year, and promised customer support time of 4 hours or less.

Snipfeed is a creator monetization tool designed to help influencers and small business owners gain control of their finances.
You can create a storefront directly with this service instead of relying on other platforms such as Wix or Squarespace.
If you don’t want to deal with multiple different tools for your online store, this could be the perfect option for you. Snipfeed is an all inclusive tool.
This service is used by creators such as Corinna Kopf, who has over 6 million followers. Here’s an example of what her page looks like:
How does it work?
Once you sign up, which you can do via email, you can easily start to design your landing page. Simply input your social links, such as TikTok and Twitter, or your main website.
Next, you can tell Snipfeed what type of content you’ll be producing. That way they can cater the best possible features to you.
Then you can start to look at customization options. Snipfeed gives you several different template options, or you can choose to design your page later. Above you can see a few of your below.
Once you’ve picked a theme, Snipfeed will ask you which monetization features you’re most interested in. These features are:
Tipping allows you to ask for tips or donations from your followers to support your brand. Your tipping dashboard will look like this
- Shout Out’s / Q and A’s
Sort of like the Shout Out company Cameo, Snipfeed allows you to charge for specific video requests. Simply set a price and cut out the middle men of a third party service. You have 7 days to accept or deny a request when one comes in.
- 1:1 meetings
Maybe you offer teaching courses or Zoom meetings. This feature allows your followers to sign up right from your page.
- Live streams
Create and schedule a livestream with this feature. Simply set the time, duration, and the price, and Snipfeed will handle the rest.
- Selling exclusive content
This feature allows you to sell videos, online courses, or behind the scenes content for a price. Here’s what your dashboard for selling exclusive content could look like
After you choose one option, you can enter a domain name if you have already purchased one, or you are prompted to join their pro plan which allows you to purchase a domain through their site.
You don’t have to upgrade to use their services, but they do provide extra features if you join.
The free plan comes with your custom link-in-bio, multiple free templates, unlimited links for your page, the ability to monetize your content through the 5 options above, and you have access to basic analytics of your profits. There is a 15% transaction fee on all purchases, though, which is something to keep in mind.
The pro plan is $29 USD a month and includes your custom domain. They charge 2% transaction fees on all purchases, which means you keep 98% of the profits. In comparison to other companies, this is a comparable price. You also receive more advanced analytics, 1 hour of dedicated coaching from an expert, Buy Now Pay Later options, and more advanced features.
While Linktree has these monetization features, it is certainly not their main agenda. On the other hand, Snipfeed’s monetization focus is one of the major reasons large creators use this platform.
Once you’ve picked your plan, you can get to work.
Your dashboard will look something like this –
You can easily see your stats and data on the right, including views from the past 30 days, gross earnings, and net earnings.
For advanced analytics such as location, device, and browsers analytics, you will need to upgrade to the pro plan.
Which service is the right one for you?
For a more simple link-in-bio service, Linktree may be a good place to start. But if you run an online business, Snipfeed may be more helpful to cover all your financial needs.
