InstaLinks – Create customizable landings and links
About the project
InstaLinks is a service that provides you with a customized landing page and a single, short link that you can use on Instagram and other social media sites.
Its name came from ‘Instagram links’ and meant to provide a single user with the opportunity to share more than one link on Instagram. When the followers click the link in your bio, they are referred to your custom InstaLinks Page where they can easily navigate to any online presence you wish to share.
With InstaLinks an Instagram influencer can customize a link URL and track the number of clicks on it. This single and customizable InstaLinks landing page might contain your:
- Social accounts,
- Affiliate links,
- Kickstarter projects,
- Favorite products, etc.
The InstaLinks profile page with all the needed influencer’s bio can be shared with any social network using a single and easy-to-change short URL. For example, Instagram only allows a single link in your profile “bio”, but InstaLinks becomes your lifeline to any other links you want to add. All-in-one place. This is the most convenient way to tell your followers about you.

Added business values by Syndicode
- Syndicode provided InstaLinks with detailed competitors’ analysis in design.
- Based on our experience and proper research we defined a future business model for this product.
- 6 months after launch, the client received a full return on investment (RoI).
- Within these six months, the InstaLinks received users equivalent to $ 50,000.
The client was looking for a development team to work on the project with a defined budget. But the expectations about the needed engineering capacity after the development were unclear. Syndicode’s dedicated developers and designers joined the project from the very beginning.
Initially, we provided a detailed estimate and product development plan for executing the project under our custom software engagement model but we were flexible enough to convert our cooperation into a dedicated engineers engagement model.
Since we started work on InstaLinks:
- The app was launched as the one-and-only solution for Instagram influencers to keep their bio links altogether.
- InstaLinks received almost 500 clients on the first day.
- We suggested marketing activities to promote the InstaLinks app.
- The quality of our work led to increased client loyalty and to another joint project we’re now working on.
InstaLinks is a SaaS project developed in Syndicode from scratch. Following the client’s guidelines, our team created InstaLinks service with its main website, and web application, payment gateways, and custom admin panel. From ideation to design and maintain, we have built:
- Beautiful Website to be found on the internet
- Web application to provide the best interaction experience and storage for the user data
- Appealing web design
- Custom admin panel with all stats and tools to edit the profile
- Plenty of Integrations for the app to smoothly work with tens of social networks and websites
- The payment gateway for the secure and fast money transaction
The client reached Syndicode with the idea of the app to give influencers the opportunity of sharing more links on Instagram.
Syndicode investigated the market and found a couple of competitors to dissociate from and to make sure the idea will be performed in an original way. We developed InstaLinks app from scratch providing the great and intuitive user experience along with the high degree of customization to make each landing unique.
Custom software development
Syndicode applied the best practices from custom software development to provide InstaLinks with the best payment integration: secure, fast, spread internationally and with great support for customization.
With InstaLinks the influencer can:
– Create a unique landing page with the appropriate title, picture, and description.
– Choose a color and background theme (or download own background picture).
– Create as many buttons and clickable images as needed.
– Explore the analytics on page views with daily and monthly statistics, broken down by countries, cities, browsers and operating systems. There the users can also spot the top referrals.
– Choose the most convenient payment plan.
– Invite friends to join the affiliate program…
…Also, what is even more important, InstaLinks provide the users with an effective and simple way to build their brand profile and make money! Using Instalinks service you can have a simple web page within a master link that will contain other links with your presence. Talking simply, instead of sending 4-5 links with your Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and other profiles you send only one.
We were looking for a software development agency to develop InstaLinks with controlled scope and budget, under time constraints. But we didn’t know about the needed engineering capacity. Looking for a good tech partner is very hard. Because you need designers, engineers, project managers and let them work together as one. Syndicode provided us with a detailed estimate and product development plan. They helped to set all the processes in one place and showed good team cooperation between each member. Syndicode designed and developed a platform from scratch, which included brainstorming features and creating wireframes. They were also involved in business process automation.
The team of skilled specialists from Syndicode did all the work on the project great! And now we assigned them to work on our next project.
