The number one tip to TikTok Success is consistency. I honestly can not say that enough. You have to post daily, and when I say daily I would suggest 2-3 videos per day.
Follow the trends
Another tip would be to follow the trends, this helps you with content ideas, but trending videos get pushed out to the For You page easier. I wouldn’t suggest doing the trend exactly as you see someone else do it, but make it your own. If you can make the trend funnier do it, that will give you a lot of attention, and a huge growth increase if your video takes off.
Be sure to use the trending sounds when creating your own videos. These top sounds get featured a lot faster than newer sounds, as TikTok likes to see people joining challenges and using their featured music.
If you are a brand or business looking to increase your exposure with TikTok then hashtags will be your best friend on the app. First, you will want to follow the hashtags relevant to your business, you can do this by searching the hashtag and following users who are putting out relatable content to your niche. This will help direct you to the type of content that is working on the platform, so you can start growing like crazy on the app.
A cool bio
Last but not least set a really cool bio. That is the first thing people see when they log onto your page, and it’s a great driving force to our other socials as well. Use this space to use call to actions by asking your fans to engage with your content. When you reach 1000 followers you get to put a clickable link in as well, this is great to driving traffic to your websites, or ecommerce sites.

Make sure you have a passion for making videos. Staying consistent is key to growing your account on the app. Without being passionate, the consistency and quality of your content will suffer and it is easier to get burnt out.
Ensure that you have good lighting on your videos. Most creators use ring lights to create the professional appearance of their content. Videos that are more eye-appealing are more likely to be watched in their entirety.
Find your niche
Find your niche and create original content. I constantly see new creators get on the For You page and get millions of views when they have a unique video idea.

My best TikTok tip if you’re looking to grow TikTok for your personal brand would be to have 3 different styles of content that you post.
Style number 1
is content that builds your audience. Basically, content that you think has a strong chance of going viral and that will introduce you to new users on TikTok. When you’re first starting out, it’s going to take some testing until something hits. Once you have a piece of content that goes viral, figure out what elements worked and duplicate those while changing the format to be “on trend” with the latest TikTok craze. This content style is going to be the engine for your account growth.
Content style number 2
is what I consider to be “Prospecting Content.” The entire goal here is to figure out more videos that you can turn into a consistent viral series. Experiment with new formats (long form, short form, skits, etc…). Again, see what works and incorporate that into your consistent content schedule. Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and try something new.
The 3rd and last style of videos
are made with the intent of building a better relationship with your current audience. Essentially content that builds and strengthens your Brand. These videos will typically not go viral as that is not the intent. Instead, talk more deeply about your struggles and things you’ve overcome. You’re showing that you’re a human, so don’t be afraid to show the more authentic side of you.

Upload and Analyze
TikTok is the best video platform to grow and become known throughout the world, unlike others, at TikTok you have more possibilities to grow if you have good ideas or are creative or if you have some talent, you should make the most of the platform, I recommend uploading one video per day and analyzing the results.
Other things you should keep in mind is that, in TikTok, unlike other platforms, it does not require investing as much money in recording and editing equipment to create content, nowadays all people have a mobile phone and only that is needed To produce your videos, TikTok provides many video editing tools and effects so you don’t have to need anything else, my advice is to experiment with all the TikTok tools so that you learn to create better videos every day and use only 15 seconds of video so that the video is more recommended by the platform.

Here are some TikTok BEST PRACTICES, Tips, and Tricks to help you succeed!
This is a creative app where creation matters! If you want to build a large and loyal following then you have to post every single day. Ideally, you want to post 2-5 times per day.
Don’t ignore your CAPTIONS!
Make sure to write something that gives your video context and engages your audience. You want them to comment and heart your videos so use your caption to encourage this.
Use BRIGHT colors!
Pink, purple and orange really stand out and grab our attention.
Keep your videos SHORT.
Aim for 10-15 seconds. They can be shorter, but don’t go longer. If you want your followers to keep coming back and supporting you, then make sure to respond to their comments on your posts! Show your followers some love.
To keep up on all the latest trends on TikTok, you need to do some RESEARCH!
Make sure you’re watching videos on the app on a daily basis so you can see what is working well for other popular creators.
Let your PERSONALITY shine through!
Don’t try and fake it – just pull out your phone and make it! You’re videos don’t have to be expertly produced or edited. Be authentic and find your tribe!
