Read on and try our tips to find out!
Why Should I Want to Become TikTok Famous?
Obviously, becoming TikTok famous means you’ll be popular on one of the biggest social media platforms.
Plus, it’s not as hard as you may think. TikTok has a very particular algorithm they go by. Rather than only showing viewers whatever TikTok post has the most likes, they show people videos based on their preferences.
This means that even if you have 0 followers, TikTok will still show your videos to people that like that sort of content. Going viral on TikTok is not far out of reach for you.
Of course, once you get more followers, it is easier to keep gaining more. You can even download extensions that are all about helping you receive more likes. But, it’s not impossible to get started on your own first.
Figure Out Your Niche
The first step in becoming TikTok famous is figuring out what your niche is. Are you an individual that wants to bring back 2000s emo trends? There’s a niche for that.
Are you a wildlife-saving conservationist? There’s a niche for that.
Are you just interested in doing the latest TikTok dances and challenges? There’s also a niche for that.
With over 1 billion users, there are many options to choose from when you want to pick a niche. It’s important, however, to find your niche and post content that is related to that.
This will make it easier for TikTok’s algorithm to work. It will also be easier for people to follow you if they are looking for that particular content.
If you plan on just posting once a week, that probably won’t work if you want to be famous.
Post every day (multiple times if possible). The more videos you make, the more likely you will be to show up on someone’s For You page. The more content you have, the more likely someone will relate to something you post.
By posting multiple times a day, you also hit different posting times that different users will be on. Sometimes of day may be getting more traffic than others, so by spreading out your posts you may get more traffic.
Only Post High-Quality Content
Posting often doesn’t mean you need to lessen your quality of videos. If people see poor camera quality or poor editing, they will swipe passed your video.
Make sure your phone has a good camera and that your TikTok app is updated with all the latest effects and edits. People will be much more likely to like and follow if you have high-quality content.
It’s important to be posting things that are trending. This means adding songs, filters, effects, sounds, etc., that are trending to your post.
By going to the Discover page on your app, you can see a list of all the trending hashtags, sounds, music, and more. You can also see popular videos and what people are raving about.
By staying updated on what’s trending, you are more likely to make your TikTok trendy too.
Use the Right Hashtags
Hashtags are an important part of TikToks. After you create your video and add a small description, you can add hashtags.
Hashtags should relate to your video. So, if you made a video of doing a TikTok dance, you can use the #TikTokDance. When people look up this hashtag, your video will show up.
You can also look at popular videos and see what hashtags they are using. If you use ones similar to popular videos, you may show up more on For You pages.
When you are adding hashtags to your post, you can see how many people have posted in that hashtag. By choosing a hashtag that has a lot of posts, you can be more sure that you are using something that other people will like.
Add as many hashtags as possible to your post, that way more people will see them. This will also continue to help out TikTok’s algorithm by showing more people your content if they like your certain hashtags.
Duet Other Users
TikTok has a feature where you can duet videos from other users. By doing this, your video will show up side by side with theirs.
By choosing to duet a user that is popular, you may show up on more pages for people who like that user. This will get you more noticed, and in return, get you more likes and follows.
Choose a handful of trending videos to start experimenting with.
Engage Your Followers
Once you get your followers, you want to keep them. This is why it is important to engage your followers.
When they comment on your posts, reply to their comments and like each one. This will make them feel seen and heard by you, and make it more likely that they will continue to comment.
The same goes for new followers too. If they see that you reply to comments, they may be more likely to comment too.
It also doesn’t hurt to make your posts engaging by asking a question in the caption box. Or, you can make your video interactive too and ask people to comment with certain emojis for different opinions.
There are many ways you can engage your followers. You just have to be creative!
You have a complete guide for becoming TikTok famous. Go start posting and get those likes! Maybe your video will become viral overnight?
