How To Get More Views on Tik Tok
At first glance, to get more views on Tik Tok you simply have to make interesting videos. Only when you dig a little deeper do you realize the actual video is only part of the equation. As part of our extensive Tik Tok coverage on TechJunkie, I am going to cover all those other aspects of using the app that can make you famous.
As you can imagine, it is impossible to provide an actionable tutorial on how to make videos that get views. There are as many types of popular video as there are people making them. Instead, I’ll walk you through the mechanics of Tik Tok that will help support your creativity and effectively promote those videos you make. That way, when you do come up with something awesome, the views should come rolling in.
Set up your profile
First thing’s first. Set up your Tik Tok profile as completely as you can. Pick a sensible username, add a good image and add your other social networks as you see fit. The better your profile looks, the more likely someone is to follow you. Spending a little time getting this right will pay dividends later on.
Choose a niche
If you have a special skill, superpower or hidden talent, be prepared to use it. There are millions of lookalikes and soundalikes on Tik Tok and you want to stand out from the crowd. So whether you’re an awesome drummer or can play piano with your toes, identify something you can do better than others and be prepared to prove it.
Don’t only post videos of your special skill or niche though. Spread them liberally in your uploads so people don’t get bored.
Tik Tok is a social network that emphasizes the social aspect. If you want to get more views for your videos, you need to watch other people’s. You also want to be very active on the network, be positive, constructive and generally be someone people want to see and interact with. The more you are seen on Tik Tok, the more likely it is that your videos are seen too.
Engagement is also part of social networking. If people leave you comments, engage with them. If you see interesting comments or questions on other people’s videos, engage there too. And if your username is associated with someone cool, all the better!
Leverage the crown
If you know someone with a Tik Tok crown, make sure to interact with them a lot. Use their popularity to fuel yours. You can also earn your own crown by producing great content, helping others on the network, being active and generally be seen as a nice person. Tik Tok apparently has human moderators that prowl the network and recognize those that make it a better place. One of the many rewards is a crown. Then you know you have made it!
If you’re in a position to be able to quickly create good content for Tik Tok, you may want to keep an eye on the trending hashtags. As soon as you see one that you can offer something up for, do it. You can then ride the coattails of that trend until it is replaced with another. Sprinkle these into your regular uploads and will should see a steady rise in views.
Challenges are great ways to engage either by setting one or by participating in one. If you see popular challenges, get in on the action. Participate positively, give encouragement and compete well and your popularity will rise accordingly.
Collaboration is a bit part of Tik Tok. Ever since duets were introduced, it became easier than ever to work with other people. Duets aren’t your only angle, just the simplest. Either way, find other users with a similar follower count or profile to you and ask them to collaborate or post a video and invite them to duet or collaborate in other ways.
Post well post often
Social networks have incredibly short memories. Something posted a day or two ago is mostly gone from our consciousness unless it is exceptional or from a celebrity. If you want to succeed on Tik Tok, you need to post good quality videos daily at the minimum. If you’re actively trying to build a following, you may need to do more.
While there is pressure to post often, quality is always more important than quantity. You will be much better off posting less often but at a much higher quality than lame stuff all the time. Everything you do, post or say on Tik Tok will influence how many views you get and therefore, how many followers.
