Here are two easy ways you can do it:

Here’s how to edit your profile link:

What About Sharing My Instagram Posts to TikTok?

Unlike TikTok, you don’t have an option to share your posts directly to the app. You would need to make sure your Instagram posts and Stories save directly to your phone and manually add them onto TikTok via your camera roll.

Repurposing your TikTok videos to Reels

Another great way you can repurpose your TikTok videos on Instagram (and vice versa) is with the new kid on the block, Reels!

While some are raising eyebrows at the glaring similarities with TikTok, we think Reels has its own unique potential. For starters? It exists within the Instagram app where we’re all already hanging out, so you don’t have to get your head around a whole new platform.

It’s also no secret that Instagram has a….uhhhh, slightly more mature (cough: older) demographic than TikTok and is already more geared towards consumers. So, it’s a great idea to cross-post your short-form video content across both platforms to roaden your audience. As they both support videos up to 15 seconds, you won’t even have to chop your videos! Just record them natively on your platform of choice (whichever one you prefer the editing tools in), save it to your camera reel and re-post it on the other platform.
