HOW TO BUILD A TIKTOK FANBASE

8 POINTERS ON HOW TO BUILD A TIKTOK FANBASE

You are probably aware of this, but TikTok is HUGE and you should try to get a presence there. Building a following on TikTok takes time and effort. Here are a few ways to get more TikTok fans and followers and how to build a TikTok fanbase.

  1. Post Original Content
  2. Upload Videos frequently
  3. Team up with others
  4. Learn from the experts
  5. Use hashtags
  6. Follow others
  7. Improve your camera skills
  8. Share your profile in other media

1. Post original content

As with all social media, posting the same type of content as everyone else won’t get you many followers. You need to find a way to make yourself stand out on TikTok, whether it’s what you wear, how you act, or the skits you perform. Injecting your own unique personality into each video is sometimes enough to garner followers.

At the same time, be true to yourself

 

2. Upload videos frequently

It’s simple, if you don’t post enough content nobody will notice your account. Set up a schedule for what you want to post and when. It doesn’t need to be every day but at least a few times per week, and frequently. You’ll find that scheduling helps you with the creative process as well.

 

3. Team up with others


Most often we create music with others, from producers and instrumentalists to other performers. Make use of each other’s followers and post together. TikTok’s duet functionality allows you to perform with another user without having to meet face-to-face.

 

4. Learn from the experts

Kind of applies to all learning, look at the ones that are the best. Either way, take note of their performance, along with any special effects or props they used. You can use this knowledge to improve your next video.

 

5. Use hashtags

Just like Twitter and Instagram, TikTok uses hashtags to signify the trendiest topics. I mentioned earlier that you should create unique content, but you can still partake in TikTok challenges or trends in an original way.

6. Follow others

Simply following other users is often enough to expand your network. When you follow someone else, that prompts them to check out your profile.

It’s an unspoken internet rule to follow someone after they follow you. Once you follow enough users, your followers will increase in no time.

 

7. Improve your camera skills

There is no longer any need to buy expensive equipment to make a good production. All you need is your phone. But it is still a good idea to brush up on photo and video skills. There are loads of tutorials online, search around and try to find something that works for you.

Before you start filming, make sure you get rid of any distractions in your location. That means cleaning up your room or moving to a quieter area.

You also need to lock the focus and exposure setting on your phone’s camera. Otherwise, your phone will constantly adjust its focus and lighting, making your footage look very amateur.

 

8. Share your profile on social media

If you have a fairly large following on another social media platform, you should definitely take advantage of that. Your followers on that site already know you, which makes them more likely to follow you on TikTok as well.

Share your TikTok profile on all of your other social media accounts. Not only does this attract the following that you already have, but it can also introduce you to a new audience.

Good luck!
