  • Post regularly

Figure out what content works best for your audience, then double down on that. TT’s algorithm doesn’t penalize you for posting too often, so go for it!

The more you show up on the #fyp the better.

  • Tell a story

Tell a story that’s memorable. Hook your audience, whether it’s in a 10s or 60s video.

TikTok is the perfect place to showcase your unique brand narrative in a fun, informal way.

  • Don't strive for perfection

Do NOT strive for “perfect.” Be natural and relatable.

It’s one of the hardest things to nail, but it’s arguably the most important ingredient for success on TikTok.

  • Follow the trends

TikTok is all about trends, challenges, and hashtags. Brands who win on TikTok keep their ear to the ground and know what’s popular.

Spend time on your discovery page to find out what’s trending and how you can capture the cultural zeitgeist.

Know what your audience likes, but don’t be afraid to take risks!
