TikTok Instant Page best practices

  • Take advantage of templates: Use one of the provided templates to simply create an Instant Page. These templates are editable but serve as starting points for inspiration. Choose Customize if you wish to create an Instant Page from scratch.
  • Replace, don’t add: Utilize TikTok Instant Page to replace a step in the user flow of your website while keeping the total number of screens the user must navigate through the same.
  • Enhance Your Ad: Your website, instant page, and advertisement should all coordinate while concentrating on various aspects. On your TikTok Instant Page, don’t just repeat content from your ad.
  • Keep it short & simple: Consider the entire page length and place the important information at the top. The scrolling experience can be improved by concentrating on a specific message, group of products, or event.
  • Invest In Design: Appearance matters. Top-performing TIPs should be well-built, rather than too complicated. Strong Instant page performance has been correlated with carousels, films, and a balance of clear, clear text with appropriate amounts of graphics.
  • Try out different versions: Experiment with multiple versions to determine which ones work best for you.
  • Create a floating CTA: Make sure the audience understands the action you want them to do and how simple it will be to do so. To ensure that users can always discover a CTA, pin it to the bottom of the Instant Page. Additionally, choose a unique Call-to-Action button style and color to make it stand out on your Instant Page in order to encourage more button clicks.
