Social media celebrities have taken the world by storm. The ability to post photos and videos to the internet and transform that into a career has made ordinary people bona fide celebrities.
But there is one social media app that can give someone fame quickly—sometimes overnight. That app is TikTok.
The video-sharing platform allows users to upload videos ranging from quick comedy sketches to intricate dances. And the coolest part is that anyone can hop on the trend.
Want to get famous on TikTok yourself? Check out this guide for 6 easy steps for finding fame on social media.
1. Use Trending Audios
TikTok videos are all about the audio. Once an audio has been uploaded, other users can use it to create their own videos. This is great for creators because TikTok watchers can easily find other videos using the same sounds.
Whether it’s a song or skit, using a trending sound can help you increase engagement and reach a larger audience.
2. Duet, Stitch, and Collaborate
Dueting and stitching a larger creator’s video can often get your video on their fans’ ForYou pages. You can respond to a creator, give your thoughts on a point they made, or be the other actor in a scene they created.
You can also look to collaborate with other creators. Start by finding one on your niche with a similar following count. You can then make a video that features the two of you to get more followers for you both potentially.
3. Look for Trending and Popular Hashtags
Hashtags are nothing new for social media. It’s how users can find the kind of content they’re interested in, and the same goes for TikTok. Using hashtags makes it easier for people who aren’t already following you to see your videos.
You should use hashtags that are relevant to your niche. But you also want to keep an eye out on trending and popular hashtags (the app will often tell you via the explore page) and use those on your video as well.
4. Opt for Higher Quality
Often when you’re sharing photos and videos with friends or for personal use, the quality doesn’t matter. However, if you’re using TikTok to seek some fame, then the quality of your content should be high.
No one wants to watch blurry videos or listen to bad audio. This doesn’t mean you have to rush out to buy new equipment. Rather, take a few extra steps to make sure your video is lit well with clear audio.
5. Create Original Sounds
Just like people can find you if you use popular sounds, they can find you if you use original sounds. When uploading your own sounds, there is a chance that other people will use them, and it will go viral.
So even if your video doesn’t land on someone’s FYP, they still may be able to find it by seeing who made the sound originally.
6. Stay Consistent with Your Content
One of the major keys to getting famous on TikTok is to stay consistent with your content. Try not to switch niches as it may confuse current or future fans.
For example, if you get famous for cooking recipes, switching to car content might alienate some viewers.
The other part of consistency is uploading often. You may not go viral with the first video—but there’s still a chance.
The more often you upload, the more likely your videos will be seen by other people and get you more TikTok views and likes. So stick to a schedule where you upload multiple times a week.
How to Get Famous on TikTok
Most users will scroll through the app to be entertained by all of the unique content creators. But if you have ever wondered how to create your own content and potentially get famous on TikTok, here is your guide.
With TikTok, anyone has the opportunity to make it big. So take the risk and start making content. You’ll never know if you’re the next big creator until you upload your first video.
