How to Add a Link to Your TikTok Bio, With Photos

Adding TikTok to your marketing strategy as a brand or influencer can be a no-brainer. As of right now, it’s one of the top social media apps, and it can increase engagement and boost your profile. But to make the most of TikTok, you should add a link to showcase everything you are selling or bringing awareness to. Here’s how to add a link to your TikTok bio.

What is a TikTok Bio Link?

A TikTok bio link is a clickable link to your website, shop, or anything of your choosing on your TikTok profile. If you want to sell more products, increase traffic to your website or shop, or make affiliate sales, this is an easy way to do it.

You can link your website or shop, another social media platform, or use a link-building tool like Linktree to have multiple websites and products under a single link.

Before You Get Started

First, before you get started with adding a link to your TikTok bio, you’ll need to have a TikTok business account. While you can have a link with a personal account, it won’t be clickable. If you have a personal account, you can convert it through the settings function on TikTok. But you can also set up a brand new business account. Keep in mind that you’ll also need 1,000 followers along with the business account for the link to be clickable.

Also, you’ll need to have the app added to your phone in order to update your bio and add a link. At this time, you can’t do it via the TikTok website.

Step 1: Open Your TikTok Account

If you don’t have a business TikTok account, you can do it easily via your phone and the TikTok app. You’ll go to Settings and privacy, click account, and then click “Switch to Business Account”. Once you do this, you can confirm with TikTok that you want to make the switch.

If you already have a business account, you can skip to step two.
