How to add a link to a TikTok bio, with and without a business account

Social apps like TikTok and Instagram are the bread and butter for building a personal or business brand online. They are the best way to connect with customers and followers and at the same time show what you have to offer. Which is one of the reasons adding a link to your TikTok bio is so important. That way, when someone discovers you and wants more information, you have the option of directing them to another page to learn even more. Be it a personal portfolio, a store page, or even just another social media platform.

Want to add a link to your TikTok bio? Read on to see what kinds of links you can add to your TikTok bio. Also, you will learn everything you need to configure this feature on your own page.

First, let’s talk about the elephant in the room. The only way to have a custom clickable link on your bio is with a business account. You can read more about how to convert your account later in the article. However, you are also not totally out of luck if you don’t want to convert your account.

If you want to add your personal website to your TikTok bio, you can definitely do that. It just won’t be clickable. As such, your URL should be short and easy to remember. But honestly, asking people to remember a URL and write it by hand is a difficult task.

It’s worth noting that you can add links to other social media platforms that you are on, such as Instagram or YouTube. Your followers will be able to click on those links and go to your page on those platforms.

Adding an Instagram or YouTube link to your bio is really easy. All you have to do is:

  1. In TikTok, tap Profile.
  2. Press the Edit profile button.
  3. Now tap on Add Instagram or YouTube to your profile.
  4. Login to those platforms.

As you read earlier, the safe way to add personal links to your bio is to convert your TikTok account to a business account. The good news is that it is actually quite easy to do. In fact, this is how it’s done:

  1. On TikTok, tap the Profile tab.
  2. Tap the menu button in the upper right corner.
  3. Touch Manage account> Switch to business account> Next.
  4. Select the category to which your company belongs and press Next to finish.

Now that you have converted to a business account, here is what you need to do to add a personal link to your bio:

  1. Go to the Profile tab (if you are not already there).
  2. Touch Edit profile> Add your website.
  3. Enter your URL and click Save.

Even after you have a business account, you may still have trouble adding a link to your TikTok bio. Here are a couple of frequently mentioned issues that can cause link issues:

  • Computer browser: Right now, only the TikTok mobile app will allow you to add clickable links to your bio. So make sure you are on your phone and not your computer.
  • Personal account: This reason is the most common. You still have a personal account instead of converting it to a business account.
  • The feature is not enabled on your accountWhile TikTok has rolled out this feature for just about everyone at this point, some people don’t have it enabled yet. If that’s the case for you, unfortunately, there is still nothing that can be done about it.

Adding a link to your TikTok bio is a great way to boost business. It’s how you can lead people directly to your online store or display your portfolio of work. Hopefully, after reading this article, you will now be able to quickly and easily convert your page to a business account. And if you ever decide that you want to start from scratch, this is how you delete your TikTok account and what happens when you do.
