Social media platforms are becoming one of the most popular methods for communication and for media/entertainment consumption. Most of us have accounts on either Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. These are the three most popular social media platforms right now, at least they used to be. TikTok appeared several years ago and it suddenly blew up and became one of the most popular social media applications on both Android and iOS. It really is amazing just how quickly it became so trendy to use this app.
But, why is TikTok so much more interesting or fun than any of the other options on the Internet? Well, it has a unique style that has not been used previously. The application that is most similar to TikTok is fine, but that one closed a long time ago. So, people are left with only one option and it is a good option.
Another interesting thing about this new platform is the fact that a lot of people are becoming famous and even making money out of this. The idea of posting funny, unique, or silly one-minute videos online and making money out of that, is something unimaginable, but it is real.
We assume that you’re here reading this article because you want to be a part of the TikTok boom and we have to agree, that is a good idea. Unfortunately, right now, there are more than 800 million active users on this platform every single day. At least half of these are trying very hard to reach a higher level of fame. But, do not worry because many of these users don’t actually know what they’re doing. You, however, can use this guide that will help you become famous on this social media application.
You need a good camera
We have to admit, TikTok is not exactly the place where you will find the highest quality or best scripted the videos, but it is still better to have a good camera that will help make your content a little bit better. Working with an old and slow phone is not impossible, but it is a great advantage considering the fact that many of the other users on this platform have iPhone 11s, Samsung S20, and who knows what else. All of these devices are very fast and have a great camera.
However, while it is an advantage to have a good camera, that doesn’t mean that you should waste everything in your bank account to buy a $1000 smartphone. If you do have some room in your budget, go ahead and buy a new phone, but if you are on a tight budget, you should probably delay this purchase or at least go for a cheaper option. Currently, there are a lot of cheaper smartphones that have specs almost as good as the flagship devices of Apple or Samsung.
These days, social media platforms work in a much different way than a couple of years ago. Hustling to get as many followers as possible was very difficult on apps such as Instagram and buying followers was almost impossible. Instagram would pan or shadow ban profiles that have purchased likes, views, or followers.
However, a lot of things have changed since then and these companies have become much more acceptable to influencers that spend money to get followers. TikTok is following that same trend and usually looks the other way when people purchase likes or reviews. So, if you ever see a profile with hundreds of thousands or millions of likes, we think it is safe to assume that they have probably purchased some of them.
What is even more interesting is the fact that the process of obtaining the followers or likes takes just a couple of minutes as suggested by TikFuel. Long gone are the days when you would have to wait days or several weeks to get what you paid for.
Follow the trends
Like we already said, there are more than 800 million users that are active on a daily basis. By active, we mean that they are posting their own content. This means that you are currently competing with 800 million people across the globe. We know, this kind of fact sounds very scary, but with the right strategy, you will be able to pass all of those users.
This is why it is essential that you follow the trends that are currently on TikTok or on other social media apps. These days there are so many different popular challenges that appear out of nowhere on a daily basis, you will never run out of ideas. Of course, it is important to be creative in your own way and to have a unique style in your content, but if you truly want to attract a bigger audience, you will have to follow the current trends.
The easiest way to get a good idea about the current trends is to just use the Discover option on TikTok and see what people are posting.
Make sure you look good
Whether you plan on making two minute long videos on this platform or just to second videos, you will still have to put a bit of effort into making a good appearance. You can’t just wake up, get out of bed and start recording, because you will look awful. Everyone looks awful when they jump right out of bed. Instead, wash your face, hit a quick shower, eat some breakfast, dress nice and then you can start working on your content. Believe it or not, but your physical appearance actually has a huge impact on your audience.
Don’t forget to collaborate
While other users are your competitors and you are playing against them, it is vital to collaborate with some of them. Teaming up with some other TikTokers once in a while will be a huge boost to both your and their account. You get their audience to your profile and you give some of your audience to their profile. It is a win-win situation. If you can, try to aim for TikTokers that already have a bigger following than you.
As you can see, becoming famous on TikTok is not as impossible or difficult as it seems. With enough effort and time, you will be able to do anything.
