Contact in Bio

Description:  We like Contact in Bio over Linktree just because of the Email button.  It might seem silly but we liked having this button up top, where the free version of link tree- only allows you to have all social/email buttons up top together or on bottom together:

Link Tree Sample- Email button circled in black
Contact in bio Sample- Able to have an "email button" up top in the free version.

May not be a huge deal for people about having a bigger “email button” but linktree’s buttons only have https:// links, you cannot have a mailto: link in “linktree”.  

For our “contact in bio” link tree, we were able to have a top button that is a mailto: link.

Link Trees – Which one do you use? 

Link trees are great and of these 3 I would probably recommend for people who are just getting started, because it is pretty intuitive.  Contactinbio we have an account but it isn’t the friendliest interface, but we did pick it at the time for the “email button” which was important to us. would be the next one we would test, it looks clean and intuitive.  There are plenty of others out there too, shorby,, and (from LATER one of the cool instagram scheduling apps).
