Have you created an on-trend TikTok video and want more people to see it? From behind-the-scenes and challenge videos to tutorials and review videos, easily gain more visibility and increase your reach by cross-posting TikTok video to Instagram!  

With both social media platforms sharing the same video requirements, repurposing TikTok videos has become a whole lot faster and cheaper. Explore more about how to post TikTok on Instagram Stories, Reels, and feed posts with Clipchamp

Why post videos from TikTok to Instagram? 

There are many reasons why creators should repost TikTok videos to Instagram. Instagram’s algorithm promotes the same vertical video format and 9:16 aspect ratio that TikTok does. This means you can cross-post the same content, saving you time since you don’t need to make multiple videos to suit different social media platforms.

It’s also possible that your followers on TikTok and Instagram have different demographics and locations. By repurposing your TikTok videos to Instagram, you can generate more views and drive traffic to your profile or website and start conversations across all your social media platforms. 

How to resize TikTok for Instagram formats  

Instagram doesn’t favor video posts that have a TikTok watermark, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t cross-post your videos. To avoid having TikTok’s watermark on your videos, simply edit your social media videos with Clipchamp’s free online video editor, instead of directly in the TikTok app.  

This way, you can edit and save your videos in multiple different formats to suit your social media platform like Instagram’s 1:1, 9:16 and YouTube’s 16:9 video ratio. Save your watermark-free TikTok videos in 1080p HD video resolution to your computer or phone. You can also share them directly to Instagram and TikTok from the exporting page.

Frequently asked questions

Do TikTok and Instagram have the same video requirements?

Yes. TikTok and Instagram both share the same video requirements of 9:16 aspect ratio, MP4 file format, and 1080p video resolution. This makes it easy to share the same video on both social media platforms.

Can Instagram demote my content if it’s from TikTok?

Yes. If your Instagram Reel includes a TikTok watermark, Instagram’s algorithm can demote your Reel. We recommend creating videos with Clipchamp to avoid repurposing content being demoted.

How do I share a TikTok video link to my Instagram Story?

All you have to do is create a new story, click on the sticker icon, then the link button and add your link.

Is TikTok or Instagram Reels better for business?

Both social media platforms are great marketing tools for businesses, but your target audience and what content your viewers like will determine which platform you should use.
