How to go viral on Tiktok ?

Mar 23, 20223 min readKashish Tuteja

Even if you have 0 followers, if it performs well in the small group shown, TikTok will continue to push it out to more people they think will like it. Now, the question is, how do you make videos that any small audience of people would find funny/ interesting/ worth their attention?

TikTok has been around for over a year, yet its algorithm is still a mystery to many. Doctors, youngsters, singers, actresses, teachers, and even technicians appear to be using the app and creating stuff on it. But, out of everyone, who is chosen to go viral? Is there a reason for this, or is it just a coincidence? Here are the solutions, presented in the form of five hacks.

Hack #1 Understand the TikTok algorithm

The first thing you should know about its algorithm is that it is meritocracy-based (how cool is that?). So, what exactly does that imply? TikTok's For You Page (FYP) is designed to offer every video a chance by displaying it to a small audience.

  • Keep your videos short - max 15 seconds
  • Use trending music or sound
  • Include text on the opening frame
  • Make the most of your hashtags

Hack #2 Create intriguing content

  • You must review portions of your videos

Making it so that some parts of your video must be rewatched is one approach to do so. Let's imagine some of the sections are too rapid for someone to read, watch, or comprehend the first time they see it.

  • In order to get people's attention, tell a storey

Despite the fact that the app became famous for its dances, storytelling today reigns supreme. It doesn't matter what the tale is about.

Hack #3 Invite your audience to leave a comment

Engagement. If there was an one word to define TikTok's algorithm, it would be engagement. What better method to accomplish this than to invite your readers to contribute their thoughts in the comments section?

Hack #4 Reply to each and every one of your comments

Don't forget to respond to them once they've shared them. A conversation should always be two-way, and you should never let them have a monologue with themselves.

Hack #5 Post on a regular basis

"Consistency is vital," as the phrase goes when it comes to working, and TikTok is no exception. It is, after all, the responsibility of a large number of people. Post frequently and consistently if you want it to be yours as well.
