Here is everything users need to know about adding a link to a TikTok bio and the difference between a business account and a personal account.
ICT Tac users may wish to link to their website or another link in their bio, which can be useful if they are selling services, products, or simply trying to direct their followers to a web page. On the other hand, most businesses on TikTok will use pointing to their website. However, personal and business users can add a link to their bio, but users must meet certain requirements.
TikTok has grown rapidly, and millions of users have used it to jump-start their online careers, increase sales, or build a fan base. The short video platform has been very usable and its algorithms have helped millions of users view their content. Additionally, TikTok is actively releasing new features and options, including TikTok’s Clear Mode, Live Subscriptions, Live Photo Filter and more.
ICT Tac users can only add a clickable link to their bio if they have a business account. Fortunately, any user can easily upgrade to a business account, like on Instagram. After that, a “Website” field will appear when editing the profile. However, personal users can also add a link to their bio, but it will not be clickable and will appear like any other text. It should be noted that this is different from adding an Instagram or YouTube link since any TikTok user can do this.
How to add a link to TikTok profile
TikTok users can turn their personal account into a business account by opening the app on an Android or iPhone device, going to their profile, and tapping the three vertical lines icon in the top right corner of the screen. Next, users need to press the ‘Settings and privacy‘ option and open the ‘Manage Account’. At this stage, a ‘Switch to professional account‘ will appear. Users can now return to their TikTok profile, tap ‘Edit profile,’ and add a link to the ‘Website‘ field. It should be noted that this setting is not editable on the desktop version. Unfortunately, TikTok users with a private account cannot use this feature, and they will have to change their profile to public and then to professional. Also, some users may not find the ‘Website’ after switching to business account, and that’s because TikTok is gradually releasing this feature.
Personal users, on the other hand, can add links to their biography as blank text. Users can do this by pressing the ‘Edit profile‘ button and manually typing the link in the ‘Organic‘ section. This link will not be clickable, so users cannot type a very long link because their subscribers might not be able to remember it. However, an easier-to-remember link like ScreenRant.com might do the trick. Additionally, users can rely on a link-shortening service, like bit.ly or kutt.it, to shorten a long link and put it in their bio. As this is normal text, users can add this type of non-clickable link to their ICT Tac profile through the desktop version.
