Ready for some breaking news?
Earlier I created a video called how to add a link to tiktok bio (in case you missed it I added it below)A ton of people have been asking me how to do it so i decided to make a post and share it with everyone! There are currently 3 different methods of how to put a link in your TikTok bio and I am going to break them down for you step by step!
BUT FIRST Why Should I Add A Link To My TikTok Bio Anyways?
There are a number of reasons! Maybe you want to grow your customer list? Maybe you want to promote a product or service? Maybe you’re an affiliate marketer that earns commission? Maybe you’re not quite ready for advertising and you want to find organic channels to get sales and leads!?
No matter what your plan is for your clickable link, you’re gonna want to follow along below to get that bad boy into action!
QUICK NOTE: In case you like to learn via video, I added one below so you can follow along in action!
Now for starters, the link in bio option is not available to absolutely everyone.
Keep this in mind… At any given time, TikTok is testing, rolling out, trying new things, so different people have different features at different times.
For example, I just got access to the TikTok playlists options, literally months after other people had it. So the interesting thing is based on region, age, the type of account that you have, your follower size, or for other reasons, you may or may not have these exact same abilities to get that clickable link in your bio.
Not every single country is going to have the link in bio option available, so just know if you don’t see it right now, that’s okay. It may open up at some point.
The 3 Methods of How To Add A Link To Your TikTok Bio
Method # 1: TikTok Tester Link Method (without having a business account)
Step 1: Go to your TikTok profile
Step 2: Click the three little dots up in the right hand corner
Step 3: Scroll down until you see the thing that says ‘join TikTok testers’. (If you see this available, do it. If you don’t have it available, don’t stress, I’m going to share two more ways to get this link in your bio)
Step 4: If you have it available, join the TikTok testers
Step 5: The next thing you’re going to do is go to the App Store.
Step 6: Download an app called TestFlight
After you download it, you’re going to have to basically re-download TikTok from the app store (unless it doesn’t prompt you to do that).
Warning: Don’t delete or re-download TikTok until you’ve used up your drafts or you’re comfortable with losing your drafts. Otherwise you will lose those drafts when you go through this process.
If it all works, you should be approved for TestFlight, which means you’re a TikTok tester and they give you that clickable link as a thank you!
If you don’t have that available, don’t worry, I’m going to share two more methodologies on how to put a link in your TikTok bio!
Method 2: TikTok Creator Account Link
Note: there’s some dispute behind the scenes about whether a clickable link in your TikTok bio is rolled out at 1000 followers or 10,000 followers as a creator.
1000 followers is when you get the ability to go live on TikTok, but either at 1000 or 10,000 followers you get a clickable link in your bio as a creator account.
Method 3: TikTok Business Account Link
Make your account a business account. Most of the time for most people, the moment you switch to a business account, you have access to a clickable link in your profile .
Now there are some pros and cons to business accounts that you might want to consider.
The biggest thing to keep in mind is if you switch to a business account, you get the clickable link in your bio, BUT you will lose access to many of the trending sounds and the capabilities of using those trending sounds.
What Types Of Links Can You Put In Your TikTok Bio?
- A link to your website – where you promote your products or services
- A link to your Funnel – where you obtain leads or get sales
- A link to your Charity – for whatever cause you are supporting
- A link to Affiliate Offers – where you promote other peoples offers
This is just to name a few but the possibilities are endless!
Whether you’re using the clickable link for affiliate marketing, lead generation or to sell your products, it is definitely a game changer.
