How to Add a Link To Your TikTok Bio

There's only one sure-fire way to do it

What To Know

  • Go to the Me tab > select the three-dots > Manage Account > Switch to Pro Account > Business.
  • Using a business account is the only sure-fire way to add a clickable link in your bio.

This article explains how to check to see if you can already add a clickable link to your profile, how to switch to a business account so you can get one, and why it's useful.

How to See If You Can Add a Website to Your TikTok Bio

Some users already have the ability to add a clickable link in their bio. To see if the ability is already there, tap the Me tab and then tap Edit Profile. If you have the ability to add a clickable link, you will have an option in here that says Website. If you do not have that option, you can change your account to give you that option (see below).

How to Add a Link to Your TikTok Bio (Business Accounts)

If you don't have an option to add a link to your bio, then to do that, you need to change your account to a business account. This is free, and you can always change back later if you want. You will not lose anything by switching back and forth except analytic data.

The main difference between using a Personal TikTok account and a business TikTok account is the availability of sounds and songs you can use in the videos you create. Some songs and sounds are not licensed for commercial use, which means a business account cannot use them.

  1. Tap the Me tab and then tap the three dots in the upper right corner.

  2. Tap Manage Account.

  3. Tap Switch to Pro Account.

What Can I Use a Link in My Bio For?

You can use the link in your bio to link to sites that will help people enjoy more of your content or support you directly. Some linking options include:

  • A personal website to promote your work
  • Venmo or Paypal accounts to draw contributions
  • A Patreon page for contributions
  • An about page to help people get to know you better
  • A cause you want to support

What's most important is this allows you to get people where you need them to go.

What Links Can Already Be Included in the Bio for a Personal TikTok Account?

TikTok is limited in terms of what you can link to in your bio. You can add an Instagram account and a YouTube channel. You can also type a website in your bio, but it won't be a clickable link. In short, switching to a business account is the easiest way to make sure your followers are going where you need them to go, and you can switch back at any time.

How to Switch Back to a Personal TikTok Account

If you decide a business account isn't for you, you can switch back to a personal account. You will lose any analytic data, though. If you want to proceed, it's easy!

  1. Tap the Me tab.

  2. Tap the three dots in the upper right corner.

  3. Tap Manage account.

  4. Tap Switch to Personal account and then when prompted tap Switch Back,

  • Can I watch a TikTok without the app?

    To get a link to your TikTok profile, go to the Me tab and tap three-dot menu > Settings and Privacy > Share Profile > Copy link.

  • How do I copy a TikTok link?

    To share a TikTok as a link, go to the video, tap Share (the arrow icon), then tap Copy Link (the chain link icon). You can then paste the link wherever you want.
