Check out the additional resources that people who subscribe to the service will find below.
How much does the Premium version of Linktree cost?
Only with the free service it will be possible to meet practically all users' needs, but if you want to increase the benefits, you can choose to buy the Premium version for R$16 per month or R$160 per year. Still on the Enterprise plan, in which it is necessary to contact those responsible for Linktree and negotiate the values. To see the comparison of all plans click here.
In any case, in the Premium version, in addition to having all the features of the free version, in the paid license, subscribers will have priority in service if they need support, reports with more details on the number of clicks on the link in your bio, more themes to customize your profile, access to Google Analytics and Sheets, among many other benefits.
And as a tip, even if the platform intends to join several links, put only the ones that are really important. So, try not to add several addresses from a single site and keep in mind that the greater the number of links, the more chances that Internet users get lost and end up giving up visiting your pages.
So, did you like the platform? If you still don't use it on your page, it's worth creating your account and starting to enjoy the benefits of the tool, especially if your account doesn't have the "drag up" feature. Above all, it's important to know how to use your Linktree with your digital marketing strategies to make it easier for your customers to access your other networks, generating even more credibility for your brand.
