If you are active on TikTok, you will most likely want to go big on TikTok. So, unsurprisingly, as Gen Z’s favorite social media platform, TikTok is still the most downloaded app for that age group and is operated exclusively by a single algorithm. We also believe you may have watched hundreds of viral TikTok videos on any social media platform that might either entertain or educate you on specific topics.
“I’m going to be a TikTok star!”
“I want my videos on TikTok videos to go viral.”
“What dancing video should I post on TikTok today?”
Before you start dreaming about all the excellent content you want to produce, we will share some informative knowledge with you, call it a pro-tip, perhaps. However, we will not explain to you the nitty-gritty of TikTok’s algorithm as we would like to keep it simple and effective!
An excellent place to start would be with the choice of music. If you have not chosen a trending song for your background music, it is time for you to experiment with it. You may be surprised that videos with catchy tunes playing in the background are likely to get more likes.
But what if you need to emphasize your voice in the video to spread the message? Don’t fret over it; you can still proceed with the voice over, just lower the volume of the song you have chosen.
There are Two Ways To Choose A Popular Song as Your Background Music
Like any other social media platform, just that you are familiar with, you can use hashtags on TikTok to draw more attention. Hashtags help the target audience to find the content that they are keen on. However, if your hashtags are not relevant to your posting content, it may not work best for you.
You will need to do a little homework before making your TikTok viral. This could be done by searching for the most effective hashtags for your content. For example, if your video content is about a food recipe, you want to include hashtags like #easyrecipe, #tiktokrecipe, #asianfoodrecipe or any other relevant hashtag. But remember, it’s best to start with one most relevant to your post, then add more after. Another good way to do your research is to check your competitors’ hashtags and see which one is relevant to your content.
How many hashtags can you add to your TikTok videos? You can add up to 33 hashtags in your videos, and you must type it with at least three characters in one hashtag. If you feel the need to add more hashtags, you can add hashtags in your comment. However, bear in mind that adding hashtags in your caption is more effective than adding hashtags in your comment section. Ensure you add the relevant ones for the videos to appear on the “For You” page.
If you have noticed many people making the same dancing videos or acting videos, it does not excite you that much, isn’t it?
Producing popular content at the moment is not the key to going big on TikTok. Instead, being creative and unique in your execution are the keys to attract more people to watch your videos. Although you have watched more people doing the TikTok dance than any other content, it does not mean you have to do the same thing to get more “likes”. The audiences enjoy new, authentic, and unique content. In other words, don’t follow the trend; create the trend.

Remember, TikTok’s algorithm goal is to make the audience continue watching the videos. So you have to keep your audiences entertained if you want to reach your goals.
Regardless of the social media platforms you are using, networking and collaborating with other TikTok content creators would be ideal. The content creators that you are networking with may be more experienced than you.
You can also share ideas and inspirations. At the end of the day, whether you will be on the platform for the long term or not, you will always gain knowledge from the people who are doing the same thing as you.
If your account has reached a specific number, you may consider collaborating with other content creators. Try to reach out to the content creators that may have similarities with you. For instance, if your content is about singing videos, you may reach out to another content creator to produce a duet video.
