TikTok provides businesses of all types a suitable platform from which to launch their message to the world. Just like any other social media platform, there are right ways and wrong ways to go about gathering the attention you will need to make a splash on this advantageous platform. Here are some of the helpful hints and tricks you can use to maximize the returns for all your well-planned efforts.
Let’s take a closer look at five different ways that you can use TikTok to effectively advance your business.
1. Focus on Growing Quality Over Quantity
Those that find success in their life are those that take the time to create success. This is not something that will happen overnight. That is only partially true because there have been many overnight success stories from the TikTok platform — but these flash-in-the-pan stories are beside the point.
The right type of Tik Tok follower is the one who has an interest in your brand, products, services, and operations. Better 5 of these than 50 who have no idea what you are doing. You could have a million followers of interest but this will account for nothing if they are not interested in what you are offering.
Having said this, whether you are just starting, or have already accumulated quite a sizable following, don’t be too occupied with the numbers. — it is the quality that will matter the most in the long run.
As you begin to attract the following, take the time to look at the data collected on your TikTok dashboard. Here you will find plenty of information on the type of people you are bringing to your page. You could be hitting your intended demographic, but you could be off your mark by a mile. If you are not hitting your desired marks, maybe it is time to switch things up for something new.
2. Create Content Relative to Your Brand
Relevancy is a crucial thing to keep in mind when choosing the content you will use to connect and engage with your audience. If the content is not relevant to your brand, there is no need for you to be bringing this up. Even if you manage to collect a following, if they are interested in content that is not related to your operations and business, they aren’t high-quality followers. Then, there will be those who love your brand and the message you are offering who become confused and bored by your off-topic content.
Do you see the issues being described here? For content marketers, this is something that must be examined at every turn. 72% of all content marketers report that content marketing increases engagement. This is a statistic that is worth considering when improving the content on your platforms.
One of the major benefits of TikTok is its unique capacity to make any video viral by presenting it to the right crowd. The unique algorithm that powers this social media platform is designed to give any video a chance to reach stardom.
When planning content that will catapult your business to new heights, it is a good idea to take a closer look at what your competitors and those with experience in your topic have done. By gleaning some insights and important points from the experienced authorities in your niche, you can design some high-caliber material that will accomplish your purpose efficiently.
3. Include Trending Sounds and Hashtags
While much of the success involved with TikTok is about getting lucky, some important practices can increase your propensity for attracting luck. There is no formula for creating the perfect TikTok video. So, it is all about measuring and examining the practices of those who are enjoying success and taking their ideas to the logical next level.
Brands of all types will take a look at the hottest topics, concepts, and trends and adapt them to fit their products, brand, and approach. You can find a great set of sounds and hashtags that can be used to convey your brand in such a trendy way on the Discover tab of your TikTok page. The selection of sounds and hashtags is updated daily. You can also benefit from a subscription to the TikTok Creator’s newsletter.
As your brand grows and gains traction in the TikTok world, you may consider creating your trending sounds and hashtags. There are many ways that this can be accomplished and one of them is making something consistent that proves interesting. Even those who don’t have a business have been using this technique to become famous on their way.
To recap: the TikTok Platform is all about relevancy. One surefire way to take advantage of the latest crazes is to stay updated at every moment and do what you can to join the dance.
4. Partner up With Influencers
Influencer marketing is an important part of a successful business in today’s markets as we know them. This offers a great advantage to marketers who attract the attention of their market through influencers who have already gained a following through their expertise or authority in their field.
But just as your content should be aligned to your purpose and business, the influencer you choose to support your brand should also be relatable to the products, services, or opportunities you offer. For example, an athletic influencer may not be the best influencer to recommend office equipment — unless you find a way to make it work.
5. Be Consistent and Post Daily
Finally, consistency is an essential ingredient. While the intention is always there, it takes hard work and commitment to plan a full range of content and repost it daily or weekly. 60% of people find it hard to post and produce content, so you are not alone in this department. But create a plan that you can conceivably stick to and then be consistent.
