How I Went from 25 Tik Tok Followers to 1,000 in 3 Months



Do you have a Tik Tok account for business? Do you think Tik Tok is only for young people?


I remember when I first signed up, it was overwhelming to see all of the dancers and musicians on Tik Tok.


After taking time to figure out how the app works during my first week, I understand why companies think it is a waste of time.


I attracted 1,000 followers on Tik Tok within 3 months of posting every day and had a strategy from the beginning.⁣

What is my Tik Tok strategy?⁣ Here is how I grew my account on Tik Tok.

Stepping Outside of My Comfort Zone ⁣


I never thought that following trends on an app and having fun would be my new reality. I am opening up more with my audience on Tik Tok then any other app.


You can win on Tik Tok if you are not afraid to show awkward moments or share your Why.


Why you started your business. Why you chose your career. Why you love chocolate over vanilla ice cream.


There is a market for everyone on Tik Tok including your business.

Showing Up Even When I am Tired⁣


I film all of my Tik Tok videos in bulk every week and although I feel tired sometimes, it is worth it.


I have a new audience and am helping more people that usually do not use other social media apps.


Branding is the mindset to have when on Tik Tok.


If your audience is Generation Z or you are patient enough to see if Tik Tok will mature, it will be worth your time if you have fun and be creative on this app.

Chatting with Followers


As any other social media app, we need to be social. If you watch peoples videos and comment or even ask questions, you are creating a connection with followers.


People on Tik Tok appreciate communication because it shows them that their videos are appreciated.


I recommend that you take between 10 - 30 minutes a day watching videos and interacting with creators on the For You Page.

CONCLUSION


Tik Tok is for almost any business on the planet. I see chiropractors, doctors, grocery stores and even realtors on this app.


If you have fun and stay creative, you will see growth for your business on Tik Tok.


You should spend several hours a week learning more about how people use it. Most importantly, step outside of your comfort zone and have fun.
