How can you become TikTok famous?
Remember the days when hardly anyone had a social media account? It went from being only a few people to coming off as a mere fad that’ll come and go as it pleases. Clearly, social media is far from being a fad. The upcoming generations probably won’t know a world without it. And just when we thought we had all the social media sites established, new ones started coming up.
Using sites like TikTok, people have built careers and now, there seems to be such a thing as TikTok famous. Some people are such a thing so it’s certainly possible. (We’re not saying it’s easy!) Are you curious about getting more followers and becoming popular and “TikTok famous”?
We’ve crafted a guide, giving you tips along with a rundown of what happens when you become a creator in the TikTok Creator Fund.
TikTok’s reach and appeal among contemporary teenagers has become unrivaled. They love TikTok but data is showing they’re not the only ones who do. In 2020, TikTok obtained 800 million active users. Unsurprisingly, becoming TikTok famous is an interest shared by what’s most likely hundreds of millions of people across the globe.
The platform may have been around and prominent for a few years, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to become TikTok famous. Taking out time to learn the app and getting followers will help you grow your audience dramatically.
You’ll want to post high quality content. It’s not that much different from other social media platforms. Posting content consistently is key to getting more followers on TikTok. Specifically, you’ll want to post at least once a day, every single day. Perhaps, it sounds like a lot, but can you really post too much on TikTok?
The more, the merrier when it comes to social media posting. But, if you’re a TikToker who enjoys making longer-form content, then it’s okay to cut your posting down to two to three times per week.
What’s important to remember is that you can’t expect to get famous by consistently posting junk. If you’re looking to be famous, your content must always be high-quality because who wants low-quality content in their feed?
The idea of being loved on social media is a goldmine for millennials and Gen Zers, but realism never goes away. If you’re serious about becoming TikTok famous, you’ll want to find a niche and stick with it. That means thinking in terms of a business owner. Ask yourself what kind of followers you want and make videos that appeal to that audience.
Combine some things that interest you. Perhaps, you’re interested in fashion. There are many teens on TikTok who post videos about fashion. If you choose to post fashion-related content for girls who are taller than 5’10”, then you’ve got yourself a niche!
Other examples of niches include funny dances, easy dinners, dark comedy, realism drawings, fitness fashion, funny memes, personal goals, street style, beauty tips, and home fitness. The holidays are coming up. Perhaps, you’ll be interested in holiday cooking, treats, and traditions.
Of course, you want to stay unique and creative but if you’re looking to obtain more followers, you should take advantage of trends. Identify the rising trends, then make content on them ASAP. Such trends may involve utilizing certain songs, visual effects or a type of joke. Pay attention to the potential trends in your feed and join in on the fun.
You’re not alone, and not being alone is a major opportunity. There are lots of other TikTokers who want to be famous too, but not everyone looks at it like a competition. Be friendly to other TikTokers. Network with them to make lasting friendships and collaborations. Like their posts, leave comments, and send messages.
Collaborate with brands. For a brief brush-up, a brand collection is when a brand hires a content creator (epitomized by a TikTok influencer) to make branded content for them. We’ve all seen photos and videos of influencers using certain products. Such content is usually sponsored by the brands that make those products. This is what’s known as a brand collaboration.
Brands are increasingly relying on influencer marketing. Brands, however, don’t always have to be the ones offering collaborations to influencers. TikTokers can utilize platforms like Insense to get in touch with brands that spark their interest and offer them a collaboration.
Brand collaborations are honestly one of, if not the best way to make awesome content while getting paid for it. You’ll be in a win-win situation!
