You can’t put links in an Instagram post. … Link directly to specific content in a swipe up Instagram Story. Viewers can either tap the arrow or swipe up to go directly to the link.

Press Ctrl+K. You can also right-click the text or picture and click Link on the shortcut menu. In the Insert Hyperlink box, type or paste your link in the Address box. Note: If you don’t see the Address box, make sure Existing File or Web Page is selected under Link to.
Technically, the Swipe Up feature is only available to users with an Instagram Business Profile that has at least 10,000 followers or a verified account. … All you then have to do is upload your video to IGTV and create an Instagram Story as a teaser that links to your IGTV video.
