Skyrocketing views, likes, and comments on social media require a savvy intertwining of popular platforms like Instagram and TikTok. But how do you integrate both these platforms and significantly amplify your engagement metrics? It’s easier than you may think.

In this guide, we’ll take you through how to link your Instagram account to TikTok, share TikTok videos on Instagram, and seamlessly incorporate TikTok content into your Instagram posts. Beyond mere cross-posting, we’ll unfold social media’s potential, elevating your digital presence to heightened engagement and visibility.

How to link your Instagram account to TikTok 💪

Diversifying your online presence across multiple platforms is key to building a robust audience. By linking your Instagram account to TikTok, you not only streamline content sharing but also enable a broader audience to discover and interact with your content. Here’s how:

  • Open the TikTok application on your mobile device, and log in to your account.
  • Navigate to your profile. This area harbors various functionalities, including linking your Instagram account.
  • Tap the “Edit Profile” button, and add your Instagram account.
  • Next, input your Instagram credentials upon selecting the Instagram option. Ensure you log in successfully to authorize the linkage.
  • Once the app authenticates your credentials, confirm the action to link your Instagram account to your TikTok profile officially.

How to unlink your Instagram to TikTok 📵

The integration between Instagram and TikTok has undoubtedly brought numerous advantages. Yet, there are moments where severing this link becomes a necessary step to retain distinctiveness and privacy in your digital narrative.

Here’s how to unlink Instagram from TikTok:

  • Tap the “Me” icon to access your TikTok profile.
  • Click “Edit Profile,” which allows you to customize your digital identity.
  • Locate the Instagram option showcasing your linked account. Tap on it and choose “Unlink” or “Remove” to successfully delete the Instagram account link.

How to cross-post content on Instagram and TikTok ⚔️

Cross-posting is a potent tool for extending your digital reach and establishing a resonant online presence. The duality of Instagram and TikTok offers a rich ground for content creators to play, experiment, and flourish.

Here are a few benefits of cross-posting:

  • Increased reach and audience engagement: Cross-posting opens a floodgate of opportunities, welcoming a diverse audience and encouraging increased interaction, crafting a richer brand narrative.
  • Better efficiency: Reusing content reduces the wheel of constant creation, saving time and effort while maintaining a consistent and vibrant online presence.
  • Enhanced search engine optimization (SEO) and visibility: Leveraging both platforms can significantly enhance your content's visibility, contributing positively to your SEO strategy and building a robust digital footprint.
  • More experimentation freedom: With cross-posting, you have the liberty to experiment, juxtaposing TikTok's dynamism with Instagram's aesthetic appeal.

How to share TikTok videos on Instagram 🤝

Now that you know the advantages of TikTok and Instagram’s integration, let’s explore how to post TikToks on Instagram. Here are two methods to share content between these platforms seamlessly:

  1. Pre-publication sharing: In this approach, you can share your TikTok video on Instagram even before publishing it on TikTok, ensuring a simultaneous splash across both platforms.
  2. Sharing published videos: Even after a video graces the TikTok platform, you can share it on Instagram through various means, including stories, direct messages, or even posts, creating a seamless bridge between your TikTok and Instagram narratives.

How to post an Instagram Reel on TikTok 📲 

Unfortunately, TikTok doesn't allow a direct share feature from Instagram. So if you're keen on sharing your Instagram stories, posts, or Reels on TikTok, follow these two steps:

  • Save your content: First, save the desired Instagram posts, Reels, or stories to your device. For posts and Reels, you can use the “Save” option on Instagram. For stories, however, you might need to use the “Story Highlights” feature to save them to your device.
  • Upload to TikTok: Once saved, open the TikTok app, tap the “+” icon to create a new post, and upload the saved content from your device. You can later add captions and hashtags or make other edits before sharing.

How to add TikTok to Instagram 🖇️

While there isn’t a built-in feature to link your TikTok profile on Instagram, you can use the website link field in your Instagram profile to share your TikTok link via the “link in bio” feature.

“Link in bio” stands as the lone warrior facilitating external links. This means your bio is the singular and most powerful tool at your disposal to share your TikTok profile on Instagram. Although you can’t share TikTok videos directly on Instagram posts or stories as clickable links, the bio link ensures your audience has a direct pathway to your TikTok world, opening doors to a richer and more immersive engagement.

Here’s how to add your TikTok link to IG using the Instagram link in bio feature:

  • Navigate to your Instagram profile, and tap the “Edit Profile” option.
  • Find “Website.” This is your canvas to paint a pathway to your TikTok profile, creating a seamless bridge between your Instagram and TikTok audiences.
  • Copy your TikTok profile link, and head back to Instagram and paste this coveted link into the website section.
  • Finally, tap “Done” to seal the deal, and voilà, your TikTok profile link is now a part of your Instagram bio.
