What’s Your Niche?

You will need to select a niche to stand out on TikTok. Pick a topic that you specialize in, or you already feel passionate about. Picking something you’re interested in will make it easier for you to create quality content.

Create Your Account

TikTok has a place for brands and creators to create their accounts. Creator accounts work for influencers, but a business account is more suitable for a brand.

Consider picking a pro account for both creators and businesses.

Set up Your Profile

When you set up your profile, you will have to focus on two parts. Create an excellent and compelling bio and select a decent profile picture. Make the best impression possible with your profile photo and bio.

TikTok influencers will have a professional and polished profile. They will get a professional photograph taken, develop a concise bio, and have a link to their website.

You should always include a clear CTA. Visitors should know where to get more information. You can invite them to message you for more information or add a link that you want them to check out.

Who Is Your Audience?

To become a TikTok influencer, think about your audience.

Who will you target? Go through your competitor’s content and see what engages your audience most. Try creating related content.

Create Entertaining or Intriguing Content

Once you understand your audience, you will need to begin making engaging content. Compelling content will gain more followers on TikTok and other platforms.

Don’t rush through the videos. Spend time thinking up creative content that will also entertain your audience.

Get some inspiration from the current viral content on TikTok. Make sure you spend time researching what hashtags trend in your particular niche. What are your competitors doing at the moment?

Remain Consistent

Try to remain consistent when creating your content. This will boost your visibility on TikTok.

For instance, you could post two videos a day. Make a content schedule, so you know from a quick glance what you’re posting next week.

Engage Your Audience

After gaining a following, you shouldn’t forget about it.

You need to engage with your followers. Take the time to respond to comments. Ask questions through your video captions.

Make sure you also become familiar with your target audience. What videos do they interact with, and do they have a language preference? What time do they watch the videos?

If you pick a business account, utilize the analytics tool integrated into TikTok’s Business Suite. You’ll gain valuable data on your follower growth.

Study Other Social Media Platforms

Some people borrow ideas from other social platforms like Facebook or Instagram. TikTok users will also have accounts on the different social media platforms most of the time.

You can begin identifying the popular topics that get the most engagement. Are there specific hashtags that trend a lot right now?

Learn Through Trial and Error

People tend to learn helpful insights through trial and error. You might realize one strategy works now that didn’t work in the past. Take lots of notes while you begin developing your presence online.

Research what strategies have worked for other influencers. Fine-tune your strategy. Use a social media management platform to help automate or generate reports.

Soon, you’ll figure out what your top-performing hashtags are.

Check Out the Trends

Posting consistently is important, but you should also find out what’s trending. Trends on TikTok evolve and change all the time. Scroll through the content like your follower would and find the viral videos.

Jump on a trend and boost your views while reaching a larger audience. Most trends aren’t challenging to adapt to your niche.

The goal is to create relatable or entertaining, and funny content. You want people to engage and share your videos with their followers.

Check out the Discover tab that’s on the bottom menu bar. You will find trending songs, effects, and hashtags in your region. Using a trending song in your video can push viewers to other videos.

Don’t Forget to Promote Your New Videos

Uploading your new video on TikTok isn’t enough.

You need to build traction by promoting your account on other social media platforms. You should attach a link to your TikTok profile on your blog. You can attack the link to your Instagram and Facebook accounts, as well.

As you promote your account more, you’ll notice more followers checking out your videos.

Look at engaging in cross-promotions. If your Instagram or Facebook accounts perform well, try using your TikTok account to point the followers there.

Try Going Live

You should also try to go live every once in a while. Engage with your audience and share some helpful tips on your niche.
