Among its other new features, TikTok recently has given select creators and brands the ability to add links to their bios. This is great news for those of you who want to use the platform to cross-promote your other pages, websites, or brands.
So who has access to this feature, who can benefit and how do you add a Linktree to your TikTok bio? Keep reading to find out.
What is Linktree?
First thing’s first, if you are unfamiliar with Linktree, let’s break it down. Simply put, a linktree allows you to share links to multiple social platforms, affiliate sites, blogs, websites, and more with one single link. This is a great way to cross-promote your brand and drive additional traffic from your social media bios.
While in this article, we will be discussing the Linktree product, there are now alternatives to Linktree that can provide an even more seamless experience to users and creators. For example, Znaplinks gives creators and brands the ability to create beautiful, custom landing pages that can be easily shared via one link.
Go beyond Linktree by collecting email addresses, sharing your latest posts, all of your links, and more—the best part is, it’s free!
Who Can Add a Link to Their TikTok bio?
The ability to add links to TikTok bios is becoming more widely available but currently, it is not an option for everyone. At the moment, only business accounts and verified users with over 1,000 followers have access to this feature.
If your account does not meet either of these criteria, you can unlock bio links by converting to a business account.
How to Add a Linktree to Your TikTok Bio
Once you have the ability to add a link to your TikTok bio, the first thing you will want to do is go to your Linktree account. For all intents and purposes, we will assume that you already have an account set up.
Step 1: Get Your Linktree Link
After you have created and logged into your Linktree account, go to settings at the top of the screen and select “share” next to the linktree link.
From there, you can copy the link and save it to the clipboard of your phone.
Step 2: Add the Link to Your TikTok Bio
Now that you have the link saved to your clipboard, it’s time to add it to your TikTok bio. Remember that you must have a business account or a verified profile with over 1,000 followers to access this feature.
To add your linktree link to your TikTok bio, open the TikTok app and click on “profile” in the bottom right of the screen. Then go to “edit profile.”
Once you are on the profile settings, click on “website”
Then paste your link and click “save.”
That’s all there is to it, now people can access your other social accounts, websites, affiliate links and more, all with one link. If you want to make the most of your TikTok traffic, try Znaplink, a Linktree alternative to create your own custom landing page for all of your links and content.
