Deep link TikTok is an ad type that uses embedded links to send users straight to the in-app location, mostly seen with product pages in e-commerce stores. This method saves customers a lot of time while providing them with a seamless shopping experience, reducing bounce rates, and maximizing ad performances.

We may often encounter three types of links on TikTok, which are:

  • Normal link: The link displayed in the browser’s address bar, such as ‘www.google.com.’ Normal links will be highly inconvenient for customers who use their phones when accessing the link because it will lead to the login homepage before taking customers to the product page.
  • Universal link – the ‘two-touch’ type of link. You will need another step to click “Open” to access the product pages. Universal links often appear in TikTok’s affiliate program.
  • Deep link – the ‘one-touch’ type of link. Customers only need to click on the ad once to access the landing page showing the product without going through any other steps.
