In the past year, video-recording social apps have been all the rage – and now Triller takes the stage. This app allows users to get creative with video editing, but also earn donations from their followers.
On top of that, it’s becoming increasingly in vogue with celebrities such as DJ Khaleed, Tyga, or Post Malone – all riding the wave of the app’s popularity. But what can a regular user do?
Well, now seems like the best time to become influential on Triller. First of all, you should start picking up likes and followers and when the app goes viral, reap the rewards. Here are some tips on how to increase your fan base.
Put Some Effort Into Video Editing
Before you start thinking about quantity, you should think about the quality of your videos. Triller has a bunch of video-editing capabilities. Therefore, the better your video is, the more chance it will be liked.
It’s easy to pick a song and record yourself lip-syncing to it. But to make a proper Triller story, you need to trim the song precisely and add multiple clips and effects. This way you’ll make a video that will amuse other users and make them like your video or follow you.
First up – add filters. After you pick a song and go to the recording screen, you’ll see a few tools to the right side of the screen. Tap the “Filters” icon (two circles) to go to the filters screen. From here, you can pick the best filter for your video.
Second, merge separate clips. It doesn’t have to be over as soon as you record your first video. Instead, tap the “Record” button again and make another clip. After, tap the “Shuffle” button at the top-right of the screen to merge the clips into one hilarious video.
The more effort you put into creating these videos, the bigger the chance of picking up likes.
Make Everything Public
People won’t like your video if they can’t see it. If you’re concerned about likes and followers, you may want to throw your privacy out of the window.
When you have a public profile, all Triller users may see it. So if your video becomes a bit more popular, there’s a chance it will come up in a bunch of user’s feeds. To make your Triller profile public, follow these steps:
- Launch your Triller app.
- Tap the “Profile” icon at the bottom-right of the screen.
- Select the “Settings” icon (gear icon) at the top-right of the screen.
- Find “Private Account” under the “Privacy section.
- Tap “Private Account” so the red checkmark next to it disappears and the circle turns gray.
Of course, you can always set a particular video to “private”. When you record a video and before you post it, you may toggle a “Set to Private” option in the menu.
Invite Your Friends
If your friends are on Triller, they’ll certainly like your videos and you’ll like theirs. Triller has a simple way of inviting your friends to the app. Moreover, it will recommend certain profiles that you may know or be interested in.
Follow these steps:
- Tap the “Profile” icon at the bottom-right of the Triller home screen.
- Tap the “Settings” button at the top-right of the display.
- Press the “Invite” button next to the “Triller is better with friends!” message. It should be highlighted in red.
Press “Add friends from contacts” to follow all people from your smartphone’s contact list that have a Triller account.
If you’re connected to other social networks such as Facebook, you may tap the Facebook icon and add all your friends to Triller.
Under the “Recommended” section, you’ll find Triller profiles that you may be interested in. The more you follow the bigger the chance they’ll follow you back. If you have heaps of followers, you’ll undoubtedly have a lot of likes, too.
Follow Latest Trends and Hashtags
The “Search” button at the bottom of the screen is your gateway to popular videos. But not only that, here you can find the latest trends and hashtags that you can use to improve the reach of your videos.
For example, under the “Trending” section you’ll see the most popular challenges. These videos all follow the same concept (usually the same song, dance, etc.) and a chunk of the community records the video in an attempt to be the most amusing or popular. Check the latest trends and join the party – this is the best way to get yourself out there.
You can also use hashtags to help other users find your video. Those that know what they’re looking for will probably come across your tagged video, like it, and maybe even follow you.
Pick Your Category
Unless you’re extremely popular, it’s always better to find your niche instead of being all over the place. That way you’ll add purpose to your videos and gradually increase the number of users that eagerly anticipate your new recording.
To pick a category, record a video and before you post it, you’ll see a “Choose Category” section. Currently, you may pick between eight different categories. It’s best to stick to one or two.
Other Triller users will easily find you thanks to the category that you pick. The “Categories” is the first section listed under the “Search” tab. If you build your name with one of them, your likes will flourish.
It’s Time to Entertain
Now that you know how to attract users to your profile, the harder part comes – creating content. Make sure that your videos are creative, high-quality, and most importantly – fun. This combination will certainly make your profile appealing to others, and you’ll gather followers in no time.
Who knows, if you keep going, you may even start making money by doing the things that you enjoy – blasting your favorite tunes and having the time of your life.
