Let us discuss how to link a YouTube video to a TikTok post:
If you are an influencer or content creator, you need to get on TikTok with no doubt. At the present time, TikTok is blowing up in popularity, with more than a billion applications downloads across the globe. As a consequence, all the users of TikTok can be viewed as potential audiences or followers.
TikTok can be even superior for you if you have amassed a following on YouTube, Instagram, or other social media platforms as of now. Unquestionably consider linking all of your accounts on social media platforms all together so that you can win the benefits.
So keep on reading if you want to learn how to link a video on YouTube to a post on TikTok.
Get on TikTok
Signing up to both platforms and installing their applications on your mobile device is all you need in order to link your accounts on YouTube and TikTok. So download TikTok and YouTube applications for your Android or iOS mobile device.
Once you had both applications installed and updated to the latest version, you are capable of posting on both platforms. Bear in mind that you can also cross-promote both your YouTube channel and your TikTok profile through your videos.
We suggest using YouTube as a primary platform because it allows for longer clips and TikTok as a supplementary medium for “pushing” your YouTube videos to your following. Moreover, YouTube has direct monetization of videos, but unfortunately, TikTok lacks it.
Just a while ago, you even could not insert YouTube links into your bio page on TikTok. It has become possible just a couple of months ago. Besides that, you can also link YouTube videos to all of your TikTok posts.
How to Link YouTube Videos to TikTok
Let us address a known problem that no one wants to discuss, before all else. Unhappily, the links on TikTok posts are not in fact clickable. In other words, you are free to type out or paste the link of your YouTube video to your TikTok post, but it will be only as a text.
Simply put, your followers need to open a web browser and type in the entire link of your YouTube video manually, which is absolutely tiresome. Optimistically, TikTok will consider it in the future. But, that is already the only way around it.
To sum it up, just add the link of your YouTube video to the description of the post if you want to link it in your TikTok post. Although it will not be clickable, at least maybe some people decide to manually check it out.
Needless to say, there is a much better way of posting links to TikTok as well: links in the bio!
Adding Your YouTube Channel and Links to TikTok
The best advice we can give you regarding this difficulty is to use your bio instead of expecting your audience to manually type out links to your YouTube channel. Here is how to do it:
- Open TikTok your TikTok app.
- Select the “Me” option in the lower right corner of your profile.
- After that, tap on the option of Edit Profile
- In the end, select the “add a bio to your profile” option.
- Now, paste the link of your YouTube video there. You have up to 80 characters limit.
We recommend writing a short and concise bio and then adding a YouTube link at the bottom of the page. No need to link your YouTube channel here. You are capable of linking your TikTok and YouTube accounts together. Here’s how:
- Start TikTok on your device.
- Select the “Me” option.
- Tap on “Edit Profile”.
- Choose the field next to YouTube. It will navigate you to a window asking for your Google credentials. Follow the guideline on the screen for linking your TikTok and YouTube accounts.
- Tip: It is also highly recommended to link your IG with your TikTok profile.
Wish you the best of luck becoming a boomy content creator, musician, comedian, or what niche you have in your mind.
