5 reasons why you need a Social Form in your bio right now

While your social media content may get fresh eyes on your brand in ways other marketing channels can’t, social platforms like Instagram are ever-changing. You have limited control over who sees your content—no matter how great it is. And if Instagram disappears tomorrow, your audience disappears with it. 

Trust us when we say email marketing isn’t dead—but someday, your favorite social media platform could be. Turning your followers into subscribers is essential for business growth, and a Flodesk Link in bio is the best tool to help you grow and protect your business. Here’s why.

1. Own your audience

Unlike your social media following, you own your email list. There’s no gatekeeper barring you from emailing your subscribers—your list is yours (with the right permission, of course). So if Instagram glitches, changes, or randomly shuts down your account, you can continue connecting with your audience.

2. Go from boring to beautiful

Level up your link in bio and give your audience a better brand experience. Sure, you can add plain links to Instagram and be done with it. But imagine how incredible it’ll be when your followers click on your link and are greeted with the same branded look they know and love. 

The gorgeous templates include space for your logo, top links, social icons, and a personal bio block—which you can easily toggle on and off right within the builder. With a Link in bio this beautiful, they won’t be able to resist joining your list.

3. Gain higher content engagement

Easily integrate your Link in bio with your other social media pages by including social icons that drive engagement to all your brand accounts. Better yet, instead of pouring your time into creating high-value social content and hoping that your followers lay eyes on it, start collecting email addresses and creating emails people love to get. 

Email puts you in control of which subscribers see your content (and when). Whether you have 50 followers or 5,000, you’ll get the exact same spot in the inbox as the largest brands out there.

4. Turn followers into future customers 

Your Link in bio is fully integrated with Flodesk from the start, allowing you to email and sell to your subscribers all in one place.

By turning followers into subscribers whom you can nurture with email, you’re building a list of future customers who have already shown interest in your brand. Studies show that for every dollar you put into your email marketing, you get $36 back. With an ROI that high, you won’t just grow your list—you can boost sales, too.
