Anyone who is making it big on social media in 2020 knows that TikTok is now one of the big players.
If you have dreams of becoming an influencer, TikTok is up there alongside Instagram as the most engaged with apps, so it makes sense to get an account if you don’t have it yet.
It’s not as simple as just getting the app and going viral, however. If you want to know how to get followers on TikTok, read on to discover 3 things you can do to increase your chances.
Know the Trends
One of the best ways to get consistent views on your TikToks, and therefore follows, is to keep up to date with what the most popular trends are.
A lot like Twitter, you can use hashtags to give your videos a better chance of being seen.
The trick to making your videos stand out amongst the others is to make them unique. Take a look at some of the trends. It may be a dance, or a lip-sync, or a funny skit.
Have a think about how you can make yours unique and funny.
If you stay up to date and in the know with current trends and post accordingly, there’s a good chance that one of them might get some traction and earn you some followers.
Engage With Your Audience
You’ve probably heard the term “communication is key” in all walks of life. Social media and more specifically TikTok is no different.
If you don’t communicate with those who choose to engage with your posts, you damage your chances of gaining followers.
Someone may stumble across your post by searching through hashtags. If they leave a comment, a reply from you might be the difference between them following or not.
It doesn’t have to be anything too fancy. A simple “thank you for commenting” may encourage someone to follow you.
This has a double benefit, as those who view your posts without commenting will see that you engage with your audience, and so may choose to follow based on that.
To help you get a head start and actually have some people to engage with, SocialBoosting is a great option.
One of the worst things you can do if you want to gain and keep followers is post inconsistently.
Not only does it disengage your audience, but it also doesn’t do you any favors with TikTok’s algorithm either.
The app’s systems will pick up that you don’t post regularly and therefore will feature your videos less in general searches.
Posting once a day is enough to prevent you from being shadowbanned and will make sure your videos appear in hashtag searches and people’s “For You” page, whether they follow you or not.
