    Very nice – thank you for sharing that simple tip! Just updated our @FamZoo Bio to try to drive more parents to our Facebook community via the extra link.

  • Amy Porterfield

    Nice!  Glad to hear a few others did not know about adding the extra link as well. . . .  Thanks for stopping by, Bill!

  • Amy Porterfield

    You are welcome, Jesse!

  • kpm

    Thanks, last time I updated my profile this wasn’t an option – very cool to know that it is available now!  

  • Hani Mourra

    Thanks Amy (and Sean)!  Awesome tip.  I was there for both your Social Marketing Tribe webinars and I guess I missed that great tip!  


  • Will Kriski

    and that’s no malarkey! :)

  • Lisa

    Driving traffic to an opt in…brilliant! Thanks for this tip, Amy!!!! Just added mine!:)

  • Jessica Kupferman

    Well who knew? Thanks for the ninja tip!!

  • Kris

    Amy, great tip.  Yes, Sean it the man!  Now, I followed your instructions, and I have a hot link.  Keyed in my company website with the http:// and it was fine, except . . .

    it is once in italics and then beneath that a repeat in regular font.  So the hot link is twice?

  • Ellen Finkelstein

    Thanks, I just added mine!

  • Amy Porterfield

    Hmmm… I am not sure I understand! Will you post a link to your Twitter profile so I can check it out?


  • Kaycam

    Thanks for this tip!

  • Mlrockwell

    Nice tip Amy, Thank you so much, your so correct when you do it right people just cant help but to notice

  • Jessica Thornton

    I love the strategy for opt in- although you have always been able to add links to your Twitter bio :)

  • Julia Rymut

    Isn’t it amazing how impossible it is to know all the tricks?  I’m both awed and aghast at how hard it is to keep up with all the  tips–and all the ways they change and morph!

  • Amy Porterfield

    AMEN to that, Julia! It’s almost impossible – I just can’t keep up sometimes :-)

  • Danny Cooper

    Thanks Amy I just went to twitter and put my second link in…

  • Brankica | How to blog

    Love the idea, I had a duh moment too, I plan to do it, definitely :)

  • Angela Artemis

    A fabulous tip. Thank you for sharing!

  • Anonymous

    Thanks Amy!  Putting it to use right now.

  • jean

    That was so cool!  Done!  Thanks, Amy!

  • yasir bokhary

    I just watched this video. Really useful and witty tip!

  • Russ Alman

    Yup, I found this by accident a while back.  Twitter doesn’t make this obvious.

  • Clint

    I agree Julia, it’s mind boggling. I love it that so many people are prepared to share what they know though

  • Tom Ehrich

    Thanks for the tip. Used it right away.

  • Gregory Ciotti

    Nice one Amy!

    I might add that you could also link to that opt-in page using Pretty Link for WordPress.

    Why do I prefer that over

    I’ve found that some people don’t trust shortlinks as much due to people using them for spam.

    If you use Pretty Link, the link in your bio could be something like rather than a link.

    For instance instead of the “eepurl” that you get for MailChimp opt-ins, I prefer to use things like because people see my domain name in the link.

    Just my 2 cents, but nice tip nonetheless!

  • Clint

    Thanks for your 2 cents. Good advice indeed!

  • Gregory Ciotti

    Thanks Clint! I’m all for including my domain name in links whenever I can: it’s good for visibility and people tend to trust domains more so than shortlinks.

    Although Pretty Link doesn’t have a comprehensive tracking dashboard like (which is maybe why Amy uses it), it still tracks the number of clicks which works for me in situations like this where I don’t care about the details as much.

  • Naomi Trower

    Very cool tip Amy! I’m wondering if 3rd party apps make it clickable. I am a heavy hootsuite user and it’s not clickable on Hootsuite (bummer) but I wonder what it looks like on other 3rd party apps.

  • Rachel Rubin

    Thanks for sharing! I put my personal twitter name on my business twitter page and noticed it turned that into a hotlink.

  • Amy Porterfield

    Nice tip! I like it and will check it out. Thanks for that :-)

  • Raphael Mavi

    This was a great post! Amy, we are connected on FB and shame on me for not checking out your blog earlier :). Great stuff!!!



  • Marian Madonia, CSP

    That’s great news!  I’ve long had another link in mine, but it wasn’t a hot link.  So glad the http made the difference!

  • Anonymous

    Thanks this will help for my website

  • YourVirtualWizard/JanineGregor

    Amy, thanks for the tip. While I did know about the extra link in the bio, it never occurred to me to use it for an opt-in…so your tip is two fold…fabulous! Thank you!


  • Cookieless Domain

    Uhm, I did not know this little trick :)

    Thanks for sharing.

  • Arnold Watson

    Gregory, that is an excellent alternative that offers a very personalized approach! Thanks for that awesome tip.

  • Arnold Watson

    Julia I completely agree with you!

  • Arnold Watson

    Amy it does certainly feel impossible! But people like yourself make the challenge bearable and I thank you for all of the value you bring to us all in this profession.

  • Gregory Ciotti

    No problem Arnold, glad you were able to get some value from it.

  • Yvetteaitken

    Great tip, thanks Amy,did it already : ) I use tiny url rather than bitly as I realised that facebook didnt let me post bitly links 

  • TraveList Dir & PR

    Great Amy! What you’ve just mentioned at this post is really useful although at the end it may seem very simple! It is in fact, but how didn’t I know it?

    Why are you following 20k people on Twitter?

  • Vijayakumar

    As people already mentioned I am amazed constantly how many tips out there and how would we feel if people like Amy aren’t there to uncover them for noobs like me.

  • We Olive

    Did it! Thanks for the tip!
