    Common questions for TikTok Lead Generation

    What is TikTok Lead Generation?

    TikTok Lead Generation is an ad objective introduced by TikTok that provides marketers with a seamless and efficient way to interact with potential customers directly on the TikTok platform. Similar to Facebook Lead Ads, TikTok Lead Generation offers a mobile-optimized solution to capture leads and drive sales. 

    By incorporating an Instant Form within the TikTok app, users can learn about your brand and respond to your questions without being redirected to an external landing page. 

    This cost-effective alternative streamlines the process of sharing and gathering information, making it a valuable tool for generating leads.

    With pre-populated fields and customizable forms, businesses can easily collect relevant data from their audience. Additionally, TikTok Lead Generation allows for immediate access to lead data, enabling prompt action and seamless integration with CRM systems through partnerships with platforms like LeadsBridge.

    How to generate leads on TikTok?

    Generating leads on TikTok can be done effectively through various strategies. Here are some key methods to consider:


    1. TikTok Lead Generation Ads: Utilize immersive, vertical, short-form videos to capture users' attention and encourage them to share their contact information directly on the TikTok platform. This eliminates the need for users to visit a separate landing page.
    2. Include Clickable Links in Your Bio: Optimize your bio by adding clickable links that can direct users to your website, invite them to events, or encourage them to subscribe to your email newsletters.
    3. Take Advantage of TikTok Challenges: Engage with both organic and sponsored TikTok challenges to increase brand awareness and reach a wider audience. Viral challenges can expose your brand to numerous potential customers.
    4. Partner with TikTok Influencers: Collaborating with TikTok influencers allows you to expand your reach and generate high-quality leads. Micro-influencers, in particular, can provide valuable exposure and engage with a targeted audience.


    By implementing these strategies, you can effectively generate leads on TikTok and optimize your marketing efforts for a higher return on investment (ROI).

    An error says that I am not an Admin of the TikTok Ad Account while configuring the bridge.

    This means that you have connected a user that has access to the Ad Account through the TikTok Business Center and it is not Admin of the Ad Account.

    To request access to the Ad Account :

    Go to Advertiser accounts, and click Add Advertiser Account

    Select Request Access, and click Next

    Paste in the Account ID and select the Admin Access Permission you want to request. You can also choose to send an email notification to the Ad Account owner asking for approval.

    After sending the request:

    If the Ad Account is created by a Business Center, please ask one of the Ad Account admins to accept the request in TikTok Ads Manager

    If the Ad Account is created by an individual user and does not belong to any Business Center, please ask the ad account creator to accept the request in TikTok Ads Manager.

    The request can be found in TikTok Ads Manager Notification, under Business Center.

    Why my TikTok account and Form aren’t not showing up while building the Bridge?

    If you are facing difficulties viewing your TikTok account or Lead Generation Form in your bridge, please ensure you have the following Admin permissions:


    If you have connected a user with access to the Ad Account through the TikTok Business Center, but it's not an Admin of the Ad Account. They need to request access to the Ad account first.
