Sounds are an essential part of TikTok. They make the videos more engaging and, in some cases, funnier.

It’s not only about an entertainment aim; in fact, TikTok’s intention is to help emergent singers to promote their music in a new way, and its collaboration with UnitedMasters affirms this goal.

Artists can upload their songs on the TikTok’s music library, promote and make them go viral in different ways.

Specifically, there are 5 valid ways to promote your music on TikTok and they’re listed below.

  • Release your music on TikTok

    Firstly, if you want your music to go viral on TikTok, you need to release it on the app.

    There are hundreds of platforms that can deliver your tracks to TikTok, like Spotify.

    After uploading your songs, TikTok users can select them from the music library every time they create a new video.

  • Use a mix of hashtags

    Add a mix of hashtags in anything you post on TikTok.

    TikTok hashtags are usually an important element of viral content.

  • Create challenges and contests

    Even better if you run your challenge as a contest, by offering a prize to the best participant.
