Read on further to know some of the tips you should consider using if you want to go viral in 2021.

Customize your profile

If you want to be a TikTok star, the first thing you need to do is make your profile visible. And since there’s a high likelihood that you’ll use other social media platforms for marketing your content, try to use the same name that you use on Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook.

Besides that, your name should not be too long; otherwise, people might forget it. Your profile should also look attractive and charming.

Be hyperactive

Many experts say that it’s not tricky for videos to go viral on TikTok. However, there’s a caveat. Your videos will only attract more views if you post consistently.

Users that post randomly, or rarely, don’t get much engagement and views on their content. Hence, your only chance to win is to be active. Post several times a day and use other platforms to display your content.

Your content needs to be creative

Videos only become viral if there was some humor or creativity applied to it. Anything other than that may lead to fewer views, likes, and followers.

So, you have no option but to be creative in every way. You can decide to do trending challenges on the platform. When creating the TikTok videos, make sure that the songs you select from the background are popular. You can also collaborate with popular influencers on the platform to assist in pushing numbers.

Use hashtags

Although TikTok is yet to be overcrowded, hashtags are essential, especially when participating in challenges. It makes it easy for people interested in it to find you.

You can also come up with your own hashtags. You never know. It could be what you need to grow your following. Other than that, look out for popular hashtags and use them whenever possible.

Buy real followers

Let’s be real for a moment. Growing a large following that could lead to brands looking out for you can take time. You need to invest in so much content to achieve it.

If you don’t want to go through all that in your TikTok growth process, buying real followers from reputable sites can be an excellent solution. Fake followers may only increase the number of followers you have but may not impact your video views.

Final remarks

Building a stable TikTok page takes time, and you have to focus on it. Ensure that you use the tips we highlight in this article and be patient. And by the way, there’s nothing wrong with using other social media platforms to market your content. It should also help you increase your audience.
