Tips to grow your small business on TikTok
- Post consistently
The TikTok algorithm gives relevance to active users. Plus, if your followers don’t hear from you for a long time, they may stop following you.
So, if you want to grow your profile and see better results in your TikTok analytics report, you need to post at least once a day and show your product or services.
- Start to follow your potential customers
In the beginning, getting noticed on TikTok can be really hard because of the huge audience that is present on it. So, one way to turn around this difficulty is to start following your potential customers.
You may ask yourself where you could find your potential customers across millions of users. The answer is your competitor’s profiles. Your competitors offer more or less your same products and/or services. This means that the people that follow them should be interested in your content as well.
So, check the followers and users who engage (comment) with their content and start to follow them, and hopefully, they’ll follow you back.
- Keep tracking all the trends
Trends are an important element of TikTok because they can help you to get more exposure and if you’re enough lucky they’ll make your video go viral.
So, you should keep tracking all the trends including sounds, hashtags, and effects.
If you go to the Discovery section, you’ll find all the most relevant hashtags of the moment. You can choose the most relevant to your content and add it to the caption of your video.
If you’re looking for a trending song, before posting your video, click on “sounds”, scroll a bit down and then go to the “TikTok Viral” section; here you’ll find all the most utilized and trending sounds of the moment.
Also effects can help you to get more exposure. If you want to find the trending effects, click on the “upload” button, click on “effects” (down on the left) and then on “trending”.
- Engage with your followers
You should be present for your followers and show that you care about them. Always answer to their comments and any question they may have.
You can also consider going live on TikTok for your followers. This is one of the most engaging activities you could take for them and it’s an occasion to get closer to them, explain what you sell and clarify each of their possible doubts.
