That's why we're excited to introduce Business Account, a new type of TikTok account designed to help brands of any size to connect organically with millions of fans and grow their business. 


With a TikTok Business Account, you'll have access to powerful insights into your audience and how they're engaging with your content, as well as building valuable exposure for your products and services by driving traffic straight from your TikTok profile.

  • Get insights into your follower base, so you can better understand your audience and potential customers

  • Add information about your business to your TikTok profile, including contact information and a link to drive traffic to your official website

Building your fanbase

Brands have taken notice that being yourself is good for business, and we aim to continue providing ways for them to build a meaningful presence. We champion authenticity, creativity, and expressiveness because it's who our users are and how they stand out. 


Over a thousand major brands are already using the TikTok Business Account feature to create, connect, entertain and engage their fans. Over on the Inspirations page, we've collected some best-in-class examples of businesses taking their TikTok strategy to the next level -- you can take inspiration from them in building a fan base to grow your own business with TikTok. 


Inspiration: Chipotle

Chipotle, an American chain of fast casual restaurants, uses their TikTok Business Account to tell real stories and to give the audience a personal presence. Content is kept very down-to-earth and human, and the brand works hard to keep things light-hearted on the platform, producing comedy sketches and behind the scenes footage from their restaurants. Since 2018, the Chipotle Business Account has garnered over 3.4M likes on its videos, and amassed over 460K followers. 


As we continue to build a platform where brands bring great value to the user experience, we're excited to deliver solutions that give brands a platform to inspire others, be discovered, and meaningfully connect with the TikTok Community.
