Hey everyone, We made Tap Bio for entrepreneurs, side hustlers, and small businesses who are working the Instagram everyday to make a living and grow their business. We’re inspired by these people. One of us, Ryan, is married to one (@againstallgrain). Ryan created a product called Link in Profile in 2016 to help Danielle sell more cookbooks. It worked, so he turned it into a product as a side-project. When he accepted a gig at Apple that he couldn't refuse, he handed it off to Jesse, who's been running it since. Tap Bio is an evolution of Link in Profile (though we'll continue to run it as well) that grew out of our interacting with thousands of customers over the past few years. Now Ryan's back full-time and we're excited to see what happens. Big thanks to the team: Alizah, Christian, Jenna, Julie, Latasha, Noel, Sam, and Tim. You guys rock, and showed your true colors through the final push to launch. Thanks also to our advisors: Gabrielle Blair, Jared Erondu, Seth Goldstein, Aaron Gotwalt, Jeannine Harvey, and Andrew Nystrom. Your insights and support are golden. Happy to answer any questions you have. I'll be back after grabbing a few zzz's.

@againstallgrain @engle Wow, this is a very cool idea. Looks like this also could work for Facebook Stories as well. For a moment I saw a way to customize my tap bio link, I am not able to find it now. How do I change my link?

@againstallgrain @engle Really wanted to get in on this, but it looks like the curse of the 404 struck me (perhaps with the deluge of demand you guys are sure to get with such a cool idea). Tried messaging/Dm through Instagram as some of the links are crashing out on your community members (again, perhaps with all the folk trying to get in). Looking forward to trying out soon! Keep up the great work 💪
@againstallgrain @engle @saclark99 I'm so sorry that you are experiencing some sign up issues. Can you shoot me an email at ryan at tap.bio and we can get to the bottom of the issues you are seeing with links crashing and sign up? We are working actively to solve this 404 error.

@againstallgrain @engle @maddenwalker Just wanna say these guys are super helpful when the gremlins bite, and thanks to their ace support, Tap.Bio really is as awesome as the trailer suggests. Cheers chaps!

I've been building apps on Instagram for 6 years and the platform is super limited. Tap.bio gives users, in a very simple way, something they've long needed - the traditions of marketing for themselves - in a super elegant way.

Pros:

Easy to integrate, flexible to use, fast to build

Cons:

More to come
