In this article, you’ll learn how to connect your LeadsBridge account with TikTok Lead Generation and create a TikTok-CRM integration.
What is TikTok Lead Generation?
TikTok’s Lead Generation features allow you to create seamless interactions with your leads and prospects in order to convert them. When users see your TikTok videos and are interested, they can get in touch with you by filling out a simple form.
The Instant Form within the TikTok app is designed as a Lead Generation feature. It enables your audience and existing customers to discover and learn about your brand, and answer your questions right on the TikTok platform.
The form is often pre-populated using the users’ info and includes questions such as name, email, phone number, etc. Before this feature, users were redirected to another landing page, where they had to fill a form manually and from scratch.

Besides seamless data transfer, you’ll be able to create automated workflows. This way, you and your team have enough time for more productive and important tasks.
