Experiencing tremendous growth, mostly since the quarantine starter, TikTok is the newest trend in the virtual world.
Today, the audience engaged in it are not only pre-teens but people of all ages. On the platform, you can find a variety of content – from funny pets videos to science videos.
Basically, anything that comes to your mind is a good idea if the video is properly done.
So, if you’re interested in finding out how to be one of the popular ones on TikTok, it’s time to read and see how you can do just that!
TikTok gives everyone a fair chance – even if you have 0 followers, a small audience on the For You Page (FYP) watches your video and decides whether or not it should be pushed out to a wider audience they think will enjoy it.
This means you’ll be able to tell if you have a viral video in the first hour or two.
Tips and tricks
TikTok is somewhat similar to Instagram, as you have to have an audience in order to succeed.
Here are some tips and tricks to go viral on TikTok!
When you’re filming a video for TikTok, it’s always good to keep it as short as possible. Be direct, simple and precise.
The start of the video should have something people will be intrigued by and continue to watch until the end. Within the first few seconds, people need to understand what the video is all about.
Keep in mind that you can record and use your own audio in your videos, or you can choose some trending music to make it cool and fun!
The chances for your video to go viral are bigger if you’re telling a story. This means that yes, dances are fun, but stories are more interesting.
If it’s not too scientific, your video can easily become popular if you share tips and advice in it.
People love learning, so creating informational videos with text over the screen always has a great potential for success.
Calling to action is another important part of your TikTok video. Make sure your caption or text on the screen has ‘’follow for more’’ or ‘’like for part two’’ included. Otherwise, you could end up with the most popular video, with 0 new followers!
Another catchy part you can use is to leave some questions from the video unexplained.
That way people will be intrigued and will want to find out the answers.
You can also add some fast parts so the video needs to be rewatched. It means they’ll spend more time on your video which improves your algorithm that, in the end, makes your video more visible to others.
Last but not least is your audience. Always make sure you answer as many comments as you can. It will show that you care about them and you want to connect.
Finally, post frequently, so your audience can enjoy your videos and doesn’t forget about you!
