How to 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.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

‍

Can personal TikTok accounts have links?

No, you need a TikTok business account and at least 1000 followers to be able to add a link to your bio. Switching to TikTok business account is easy and anyone can do it, so don't let it stop you.

Why can't I put a link in my TikTok bio?

There are three main reasons why you can't put a link in your TikTok bio:

  1. You don't have a business account:Β The ability to incorporate a website link is exclusively offered to those who operate a TikTok business account. So, the first thing to cross-check is whether your account falls under the 'Business' category.
  2. You have less than 1000 followers:Β Back in 2022, TikTok rolled out an update that restricted business accounts with a follower count of less than 1,000 from embedding a website link in their bio. This initiative was introduced to mitigate the risk of spam.
  3. Your country is not supported: Lastly, even if you satisfy the above two criteria and are still unable to add the clickable, it's possible that the feature has not yet been rolled out in your country. While TikTok business accounts are accessible in a majority of countries, the feature-set provided can differ from one region to another.
Why is my link in Bio not clickable?

Your bio link might not be clickable if you added the link before you reached 1000 followers and you are still using a personal account. You might also be adding a link from your desktop - you must use the TikTok mobile app to add your link for it to be clickable.

What are TikTok Business account features?
  • ​Analytics - you can find much more detailed metrics about your account and its growth
  • ​Email address - Β show your email address directly on your TikTok profile
  • ​Link in bio - add a clickable link to your bio
  • ​Scheduler for posts - Schedule your TikTok posts in advance
  • ​Commercial Music Library - Access copyright fee free song library of 100,000 songs.
What are the cons of using TikTok Business account?

Using a business account might prevent you from using certain trending songs. Attempting to add songs will show you a notification that will ask for a commercial business license to use the trending music. Otherwise using TikTok business account gives you more access to TikTok marketing tools, and if you use TikTok to market your business, you should make the switch
