After the emergence of a new social media platform, it becomes vital for everyone to spread their presence on all social media platforms. You might have an amazing audience on Youtube, and the same has to increase across other platforms. The short video platform TikTok is booming in the social media world.
It is necessary to link and connect each of your social media accounts to get maximum benefits. It may be possible that TikTok users might not be seen in your Youtube videos. If you want to spread the awareness of your videos, then you need to link them with other social media.
Steps to Link your Youtube Videos to TikTok
Let’s see how we can link Youtube videos to TikTok
Downloading the Apps
Either you have an Android device or an iOS device, the preliminary step is to install the apps. Download Youtube and TikTok in your devices and sign in.
You are using both of the platforms to promote your content, but here are some of the things which you need to keep in mind. TikTok is the platform that does not provide you with any kind of monetization while Youtube is.
So because of this reason, you need to keep Youtube as your primary social media platform while TikTok is secondary. Earlier, TikTok does not provide you to include a link to your Youtube videos on your profile. But now you can add the link on your TikTok profile as well as you can also share it with each TikTok post.
To post the link on your TikTok post, you have to just type it or paste it in the description of the post.
The problem with this is you cannot click on the link. It is a non-clickable link, so it will just display with your post. Maybe TikTok will rectify this problem and add this as a feature.
If the user really wants to search your Youtube videos, then they can manually search and go to the Youtube channels and watch the videos.
Let’s see how you can add a Youtube channel or videos link on TikTok
- Open the TikTok app on your device
- Tap on the “Me” option bottom-right corner of your screen, and it will take you to your profile

This could be an effective strategy to cross-promote your different social media platform reach. You can promote your Youtube videos on TikTok as well as you can also do the reverse. Youtube also can be a good platform to increase your followers on TikTok.
Create some good short videos for TikTok and full videos for Youtube. Promote it on TikTok and drive the traffic to Youtube. Why we are focusing too much on Youtube is the monetization of the content. TikTok will not provide you with any monetization, so you need to just drive the traffic to Youtube to attain maximum monetization.
