Adding a Linktree to your TikTok bio can help drive traffic to your online store, blog, or any other place on the internet.
It's good to note that not everyone will have access to a website field for their profile. TikTok is slowly rolling this feature out to people who have a larger following or use it consistently every day.
One of the quickest ways to get a website field is to switch to a business account and then register your business on TikTok. If you want to skip to that section, scroll down to the end.
I found out that if you can gain 1,000 followers or more, it will unlock a bio link on your profile.
Below are a few simple steps to easily add your Linktree to your TikTok bio:
Sign up for a Linktree account
If you don't have one yet, you need to signup for a free Linktree account. They do have paid plans, but a free version will be perfect for you if you are starting.
When signing up, most people will choose a username that matches their name, business, or the name they use on their profile.
Set up your links on your dashboard
Linktree has a very easy-to-use interface. As soon as you log in, you will see your dashboard.
At the center of the screen will be a prompt to add a title to your link and the URL you want to add.
If you look to the right-hand side, you will see a preview of your Linktree page.
Get your Linktree URL
Once you have set up all your links and are happy with the look and feel of your Linktree page, it's time to copy your URL.
On the top right-hand corner of your dashboard, the URL will be displayed with a button saying "share."
Once click on the share button, you will see a drop-down menu.
At the bottom of the drop-down menu, you will have the option to copy your Linktree URL.
Head over to your TikTok profile
Now that you have copied your Linktree URL, it's time to head to TikTok
Once you open TikTok, click on the profile tab on the bottom right side of your screen (on mobile devices).
If you are on a desktop, you will see your profile photo on the top right of the screen.
Hover over your profile image, and a drop-down menu will appear. You will see the "edit profile" button if you view your profile.
Tap on the edit profile button
Now that you are on the "edit profile" screen, you will see the website field in the center, as long as you have access to it.
Paste your Linktree URL
Paste your Linktree URL into the website field and save your changes.
Boom! You just added a Linktree to your TikTok bio! Now you can start sending more people to your online store or blog.
