TikTok is a video creation and sharing application that was launched in 2017 and has received surprisingly fast reception, especially among young Internet users. The Tik Tok ecosystem has completed one billion Android application downloads and has a vast and diverse network. For many users, this is a way to fame and wealth.

Although TikTok’s direct monetization is still a bit tricky, it can be achieved for those willing to take the appropriate steps to create engaging and immersive content. Attracting a stable audience is the key. There are several factors for TikTok’s followers.

So, how to get more views on Tik Tok videos? At first glance, you might think “just make more interesting videos”, in fact, this is a good starting point-but it’s not all, or even all.

Set up your profile

The first step in attracting followers and gaining views is to set up your profile. A good profile means that people who watch one of your videos are more likely to stay and watch more videos, while a bad or uninformed profile will not entice anyone to stay or subscribe.

Username

It is important to choose the correct username. You need to choose a reflection that is easy to remember but reflects who you are and the content of your video. An engaging username that can make those who are interested in your content the most effective way to activate a TikTok profile.

Profile picture

A great profile picture will definitely increase your likelihood of getting followers quickly. Whether you are an individual or a group, adding a high-quality and compelling profile picture will draw people’s attention to your video.

Cross-platform scope

Add links to your other social media networks so that people who want to connect with you can choose to do so. More connections = more views. Your profile should reflect who you are and what you think about the style of the video, but it should also welcome and be friendly to new viewers.

Choose a location

You can post videos every day, but this is what attracts people to watch. With TikTok, you can choose to host interesting videos, “how to” videos, inspiring content and more. If you want to show animals or talents, then your followers will start to expect you to provide such content.

Choosing a niche market means that you have found something that people like to watch, and you have published fresh material in this genre to stay focused.

In addition, there is only too much time in a day, you can only make so many videos. If you have special skills, superpowers or hidden talents, then you should be ready to use it.

There are millions of similar expressions and similar voices on Tik Tok, and you want to stand out from the crowd. Therefore, whether you are an excellent drummer or can play the piano with your toes, make sure you can do something better than others and be prepared to prove it.

Get social on social media

Tik Tok itself is a social network, which emphasizes social aspects. Watch other people’s videos, watch their work, and support them through likes, comments, and sharing-these can not only increase the number of people who are watching the video, but also increase your video. Your username will appear in these comments, and if you have something interesting to say, people will click on you to see what is happening in your world.

You need to be an active member of the Tik Tok community, make friends and help each other. Participation is also a way to turn irregular followers into loyal fans-when you answer someone’s comments on your video in a positive and inclusive way, they are more likely to increase their investment in the video you make.

Make the most of blue V

The crown in Tik Tok is a crown icon that is displayed on the profile and video of certain privileged users. In essence, having a crown means that you are a recognized influence on the platform. Tik Tok has some human hosts patrolling the scene, looking for people they want to encourage their work, and the crown is one of the rewards they sometimes give out.

To crown yourself, it will take a lot of time and effort-the crown is a reward for success, not a tool for more achievement. At the same time, you should interact with the crown characters on Tik Tok as much as possible to use their popularity to cheer. If you comment on a video with 100,000 views per day, your comment will have a greater impact than if you leave the comment to a video with 100 views per day-but it takes the same amount of time to write each comment.

By producing great content, helping other people on the network, active and usually regarded as good people, win their own blue V.

Use trend tags

Some Tik Tok creators can quickly make videos according to their own style and niche environment. If you are such a creator, you can use the popular tags on Tik Tok to see where the public interest is and create videos that fit these tags.

Then, you upload your hot topic videos with the appropriate tags, and you will not only get viewers, but also viewers who are usually looking for new things, such as influences, the most coveted audience on the site.

You don’t have to do all the trends all the time, but a large number of themed videos scattered in the regular feed will accelerate your growth.

Use challenge

Challenges are a great way to increase audience participation and attract people who understand the challenges. You can create your own challenges or participate in challenges initiated by others. As with other social media engagement tools, it is recommended that you do both at the same time-you want to be seen as a member and creator of the community.

Actively participate, encourage competitors or people who challenge yourself, and praise others for their excellent work. Challenges are a fun and exciting way to interact with others and gain more insights.

Cooperation

Collaboration is an important part of Tik Tok. Since the introduction of the duet, it has become easier than ever to work with others. Duets are not the only way to collaborate, but they are the simplest. If you find other users with similar levels of followers or users in the same market segment, suggesting a collaborative video project can win you a whole new audience.

You can collaborate with people you know, or you can randomly ping popular creators based on cooperation requests. Don’t be surprised if a creator whose engagement has increased politely (or not very politely) your offer; it’s not personal. After building a portfolio of great content, you are more likely to succeed in collaboration with other influencers.

Often posted

The memory of those who follow the social network Social is incredible. Some things released a day or two ago, unless it is a special situation or created by a celebrity, most of them have disappeared from our consciousness. If you want to be successful on Tik Tok, you need to publish at least high-quality videos every day.

If you are actively trying to build a follower, you may need to do more. Despite the constant pressure to publish, quality is always more important than quantity. Compared with content that often appears lame, reducing the frequency of publication will be better, but the quality will be higher. All the operations, posts or comments you perform on Tik Tok will affect the number of views you get, and thus how many followers.

Use other platforms

Some creators focus all their social media promotion on Tik Tok itself, but this is a mistake. Although Tik Tok should be your main place to be energetic, sites such as Instagram and Facebook can also provide powerful multipliers for your audience.

If you don’t have a lot of followers on TikTok, but you do have on other social media platforms; you can publish your content on other platforms to bring more views. Encourage followers on other social media sites to capture more content on TikTok.
