What are Invite Links?
Invite links are a new campaign type that allows you to invite creators outside of the TikTok Creator Marketplace platform by generating a link for creators to upload their videos.
This allows you to collaborate with creators even if they are not registered on TTCM.
Why use Invite Links?
🤼 Access to any TikTok creator
With Invite Links, you no longer need to limit your collaborations to creators who are registered on TikTok Creator Marketplace. You can now collaborate with any creator who meets the local age requirement in their country (for example, creators who are 18 and above in the US).
📊 Access to aggregated, first-party reporting
One of the top benefits of TikTok Creator Marketplace is that it enables brands to see the performance of their campaign right from their TTCM account. No need to request screenshots from creators to see how your videos are performing! You can easily go to the Reporting dashboard of your account to see metrics such as video views, engagement rate, etc.
Please note that it takes the dashboard one to two days to reflect the latest data from your campaign. So don't worry if you don't see the most updated results right away!
😎 Easy flexible flow
As TikTok's official platform for brand and creator collaborations, TikTok Creator Marketplace offers an end-to-end workflow for your creator campaigns on TikTok. You can discover creators, brief campaigns, review videos and see analytics without leaving the platform!
However, we understand that some clients might not need to use all these features.
Before Invite Links, TTCM was a contained environment where brands and agencies could only partner with TTCM creators through the platform's end-to-end workflow. Now, Invite Links gives you the ability to collaborate with any creator in a more customized way using your preferred process.
🔗Access to Anchors
Did you know that Invite Links have been integrated with another awesome feature on TikTok Creator Marketplace called Anchors? TTCM Anchors allow brands to pin links within creator videos or the video's comment section.
Clients can use Anchors to link to their brand websites, product pages or any landing page that they want viewers to land on after watching the creator video.

3. Share the Invite Link with the creator
Your Invite Link will now be generated, and you can now share it directly with the creator you want to collaborate with via your preferred channels offline.
On the creator side, they will see the campaign details when they click on the link. The creator then needs to upload the video via the Invite Link.
4. Monitor your campaign performance
To see how your creator-led campaign is performing, go to the Reporting dashboard in your TTCM account. You can select Invite Link Only in the filters to quickly search for your campaigns that used Invite Links.
Note that it takes about two days for data to appear so don't worry if you don't see any results immediately after your videos go live.
