For businesses like restaurants or cafes, it's super important to make your menu easy to find. When customers can check out the menu ahead of time, it's a big help, especially for those with dietary needs. Imagine someone in your group is a vegetarian — if you didn't know there were veggie options, you might not book. So, by having the menu easily accessible, you're more likely to get bookings because customers don't have to spend time emailing or calling to find this info.

Although Linktree is a really great option, there are loads of similar services to choose from depending on your specific needs and goals.

Instagram now lets you add up to five clickable links directly to your profile, instead of just one. However, only the first link is visible on your profile itself, users need to tap "more links" to see the remaining four. You can't add more than five links in total, and you don't get any customizable landing pages or detailed analytics with Instagram's built-in links.

Because of this, you may still want to consider using a third-party service we mentioned above if you need more customization, analytics, or simply want a prettier landing page for your audience.
