    Hi,

    Disclaimer: I know nothing, absolute zilch about IG so please excuse these embarrassing questions. :)

    ==============================================================

    My questions are:

    1. Am I right in stating you cannot hyperlink in photo descriptions on Instagram?

    2. If this is true how the hell do clothing stores or product sellers direct traffic to landing pages from each photo?

    3. I noticed that many seem to put a raw URL in descriptions which is not clickable (man that sucks, as this is a mobile app and you cannot easily use that raw URL to get that link live). So is the only way to link back is to put a link in your bio?

    4. Is there a clever way of getting people to your landing pages?

    Thanks :)

    To answer all your questions: you can only put a clickable link in your bio.
