How to Create an Instant Page
Last updated, May 2024

An Instant Page is a fast-loading, lightweight web page that loads up to 11 times faster than a standard web page. Instant Pages offer a variety of templates to make it easy to create your Instant Page. You can also customize your own Instant Page by editing its components like text, pictures, videos, carousels, and call-to-action buttons.


To add an Instant Page to your ads, you need to create an eligible ad on TikTok Ads Manager and then create your Instant Page.

Instructions

To add an Instant Page to your ads, you will first need to create a Campaign and Ad Group with the following settings. Log in to TikTok Ads Manager and create a new campaign to get started.


1. ​Select a supported Advertising Objective, and choose from Traffic, Website Conversions, Reach, or Video Views.
