If you're looking to add a clickable link to your TikTok bio, you'll need to have a Business account. Business account needs to have at least 1000 followers to access the link-in-bio feature.

Once you've made the switch, you'll be able to easily add a link to your bio and drive website traffic and conversions. Follow these steps to make the change:

  1. Once you are logged in, access the "Me" section by tapping the button in the lower right corner and select "Edit Profile" to add a profile picture, bio and links to other social accounts.
  2. To switch to a business account tap the three dots in the upper right corner, and then select "Manage Account".
  3. Tap on Switch To Pro Account and select between Business or Creator.
  4. Now, pick the category that best describes your brand and tap Next.
  5. Select the category that most closely aligns with your brand and move on to the next step.

Now you have a TikTok business account! And if you already have 1000 followers you can add a link in to your TikTok bio:

  1. Tap Edit Profile
  2. Tap Add your website
  3. Add your link URL
  4. Tap Save

Add multiple links to TikTokΒ bio

The limitation of the bio link feature on both Instagram and TikTok is that you can only add a single link. Since you cannot post links in other areas of the platforms, it's essential to be creative to make the most of this limited opportunity.

For many creators, this means using a landing page to turn a single link into multiple links. A landing page can feature all the links you want to promote, you simply need to direct users to this page from your Instagram or TikTok bio.

One of the best ways to get a free, flexible, and easy to use page builder for you Instagram or Tiktok bio is to use Pensight, that not only provide you a place for all your links but also allow you to host your products and offer services directly from the link-in-bio page.
