Here are the steps you need to take to upgrade your account to TikTok Pro.
But first, why would you want to have a Pro account? Well, it’s free. It also gives you analytics for your content. The analytics show you how many video views, profile views and new followers you get according to time and day of the week. It highlights trending videos you may have, and it also breaks down your followers by gender, location and activity (aka when your followers are most active on the platform).

The Pro account also gives you an option to make a TikTok Creator Fund. According to the app, “The U.S. TikTok Creator Fund will help support ambitious creators who are seeking opportunities to foster a livelihood through their innovative content on TikTok…” The app wrote that the fund will pay creators for the content, but a user must have a certain amount of followers and video views to apply.

So, here’s how to get a TikTok Pro account. First, navigate to your settings from your profile page. Then find “Manage account.”
From there you’ll want to select “Switch to Pro Account.”
Then you need to choose which type of account you want. Keep in mind that only the “Creator” option will allow you to apply to the TikTok Creator Fund program.
You’ll be asked a few more questions related to what type of content you create and your gender (optional).
