Establishing TikTok for Business

The summer of 2020 saw TikTok introduce a TikTok for the Business hub, followed months later by TikTok Pro. The two hubs were originally separate: one was geared toward businesses, the other toward creators of high growth. However, TikTok eventually merged the hubs because they offered almost identical insights.

For now, only TikTok for Business is a viable option. However, if you have a business account, you can fill in more details about your business and view statistics and insights about your audience.
