If you run a business with an online presence, there’s a good chance you know about Linktree – the handy ‘link in bio’ tool that curates and presents your top links all on one easy-to-use page. Linktree was founded in Australia and has grown to become the top social media link in bio tool – popular across all major social media platforms.
Now there’s great news for businesses using Square and Linktree: you can connect both platforms and start taking Square payments and donations directly from your Linktree link in bio! Read on to learn more about the integration and what it could look like for your business.
What makes the link in bio so important?
The majority of businesses today are omnichannel, meaning they sell and have a presence across multiple channels. Yes there’s the place you physically sell your product, but there’s also your website, online checkout links and now the plethora of social media platforms that can help your business reach new customers.
Linktree makes it easier for you to curate, streamline and manage the way your customers can experience your brand online. Instead of a series of links scattered across various platforms and sites, everything your customers need to find can now be added to your Linktree which is both simple and effective. Anyone who follows you on social media knows they only need to navigate to one place – your link in bio – to access anything they need.
Now with the Linktree and Square integration, your customers are able to support you with tips and donations directly on your Linktree via a Support Me Link/Tip Jar.
Connecting Linktree to Square
Ready to connect your Square and Linktree accounts? There are four easy steps:
- Visit the section of your online Square Dashboard and click Visit App Marketplace.
- Search for Linktree in the search bar > click Search.
- Under Linktree, click Get Started.
- Allow permissions to access your Square account information.
Once you’ve set up the integration, just add your Linktree to all of your online platforms and social profiles. Then, start driving your followers there in order to start collecting payments. Payments processed with Linktree can now automatically sync with your Square account.
Use Linktree to build a content hub for your brand
Aside from providing a new channel for you to take payments and donations, your Linktree can become a central hub for featuring your top content: anything from menus to image libraries, blog posts, event tickets, videos, product pages and much more.
Promote the content you want your followers to see the most by including it on your Linktree page. Your customers will be grateful to find what they want without having to trawl the internet across multiple platforms.
