Sorry if this comes as bad news: you’ll need 10k followers, or to be verified. Usually these come together.
Then you’ll need switch to a business account – you’ll need to wait about 30 minutes for the changes to take effect
Then you just need to follow these steps to add a link to your Instagram story
It’s really simple – just go to post a story as normal. If you’ve followed the steps above correctly, you’ll see the link icon to the right of the sticker icon.
All you have to do is tap on it and you’ll be taken to this screen.
