Use polls to share your links

One of the best and easiest method to share links with your friends if you don’t have a verified account. This method will also tell you about the people who are interested about the content you share.

Here is how it works:

  • First, create an Instagram story
  • Add a poll, ask question like ‘do you want the link’
  • Write yes or no on the poll
  • Wait for sometimes and then check the response on the poll
  • You just have to send the link to the ones who polled yes

Tell people to ask for the link privately

This one is similar to polling method. The only difference is people don’t have to poll for the link, they just have to send you a private message.

For instance, post a story saying, type a yes or send a smiley emoji to get the link. When you do this, people who are really interested in your link will send you a text message.

In polling method even, the disinterested people can tap on yes, but here it will take time for people to reply. So, expect the only real ones to revert you.
