Doubling Down on Linktree
We are thrilled to double down on our investment in Linktree, the beloved tool used by ✨24 million✨ creators, artists & brands.
Linktree started by creating the link-in-bio category. Today, it’s an essential platform where users can curate, grow & monetize online identities🧵👇
The average person had 8.6 social media accounts in 2020, up from 4.8 in 2014 - and we expect that to continue to increase.
👉Linktree – allows you to create a table of contents for your online story 📚
The platform aggregates your digital presence under one profile & provides an identity layer for your audience across the internet.
For creators, this unlocks massive value. Audiences are no longer siloed & can easily navigate b/t sites.
Georgia sat down with Alex Zaccaria at the Index Creator Summit to discuss the evolving use cases for Linktree.
And this includes the “who’s who” of creators, artists & brands.
Linktree’s 24 million users include the likes of TikTok, Selena Gomez, Noah Beck, Bella Poarch, Red Bull, Shawn Mendes, the Los Angeles Clippers, Comedy Central, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson & HBO.
But that’s not where the momentum stops…
Linktree by the numbers
🔥 1.2B unique visitors a month - among the top 300 most popular websites globally
⭐ Enabled >1M artists to generate 90M visits to streaming providers in 2021 alone - 2x as many artists & 3x as many clicks as the year prior
🙌 Linktree’s influencer, small business, and music verticals have grown >300% each from 2020 to 2021
📈 Drove 1.2B clicks to commerce-related websites in the last year alone
What tools are still needed?
According to Alex Zaccaria, there’s a huge amount more to build to continue enabling all creators.
“There’s talent all over the world we are yet to discover…. [at Linktree] we’re really excited about opening that up.”
