How to Add a Link To Your TikTok Bio

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

What To Know

  • The only sure-fire way to add a clickable link in your bio is to switch to a business account by going to the Me tab and selecting the three dot menu, then click Manage Account > Switch to Pro Account > Business.
  • Some non-business TikTok accounts already have a Website field, but it's rolling out very slowly.

This article explains how to check to see if you can already add a clickable link to your profile, how to change it so you can get one, and what it's useful for.

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 make a change to your account to give you that option (see below).

How to Add a Link to Your TikTok Bio

If you don't have an option to add a link to your bio then in order to 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 in 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 any number of helpful sites that will help people enjoy your content or support you directly. Some options for linking include:

  • A personal website.
  • Venmo or Paypal links for people to contribute.
  • A Patreon page.
  • An about page that helps people get to know you better.
  • An important cause you want to help.

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 a Instagram account and a YouTube channel. You can also type a website in your bio, but it won't be a clickable link. In sort, 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.
