Lots of views are the main goal of TikTok. But how do we grab our target audience’s attention, especially when they see millions of TikTokers every day already?
This article will teach you how to up your presence on TikTok and rack up those all-important views!
What Is TikTok?
The app, which was initially launched in 2016, has exploded in popularity among millennials around the globe.
The video-sharing social media platform enables its users to create short videos showcasing themselves or their friends to a beat using motion-tracking technology.
How Do I Get Started?
It couldn’t be easier – just follow these 3 easy steps:
Step 1: Pick A Video ThemePick
Choose one that suits your personality and that reflects what you want people to associate with you as an influencer. Some examples include “You Are Free,” “Party Time,” “Funny Girls,” and even “Gentlemen Only.”
Step 2: Start Shooting
Don’t forget to give your viewers a look at the things you love doing! If you’re into sports/games, make sure to shoot while playing them. If you have pets, have fun with them while recording.
Make it as unique as possible. Don’t worry about making it perfect – just focus on having fun! Remember to smile.
Step 3: Add Filters Sparingly
Use filters sparingly because they tend to make TikToks look unnatural. We recommend sticking to the default setting (unless you’re trying to achieve a specific effect).
Just remember not to change the brightness, color saturation, or contrast too much — overdoing it could cause your frame rate to drop. That said, there’s plenty you can do to spice up any TikTok before uploading. Have fun experimenting!

About TikTok Views
You need to understand how to use TikTok before you start using the tips below. To make sure you’re getting real views, you need to know what counts as a view.
If TikTok finds out you paid bots to watch your videos, the view count will disappear. Tiktok pays you money for views. You can make up to $4 per thousand views.
When you post a video to TikTok, it will get an audience of around 300-500 users. You’ll want 70% of those random users to view your whole video if you want to start gaining real traction and go viral.
If you want to get lots of views on TikTok, you’ve got to do something different. Here are some ways to make sure you get views on TikTok.

Cater To Your Target Audience
Find your target audience, whoever they may be, and post content that appeals to them and their interests so you can get more views.
You shouldn’t make videos about things that aren’t interesting to your target audience.
For example, if you’re trying to get views on videos about cats, you want to appeal to your cat-loving viewers (so maybe don’t post videos about dogs).
Kind of like hashtags on Instagram, using keywords in captions can help Tiktok understand the context of your video better.
This helps them decide which users they should show your video to. Using catchy captions which wrap up the context of your video well will help TikTok show it to the kind of audiences you’re looking for, and up your view rate.
Smart Sound Effects
Using cool sound effects or trending songs on your TikTok videos helps TikTok show your video to viewers who have watched a video with the same sound.
This again helps you hit your target audience and ups your views.
Use Different Social Media Platforms To Promote Your TikToks
Your videos won’t magically go viral, so it’s important to know the ins and outs of directing TikTok followers to your content. Help spread the word about your TikToks. You can mention it on other platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
This is kind of a win-win because you’re posting new content on multiple platforms, which means you can direct your followers to your different social media accounts.
If you’ve already got lots of friends on Facebook, use them to get your views up on TikTok, and they’ll probably share your videos with their followers too!
Figure Out The Best Time Of Day To Post
Fortunately, TikTok offers analytics that shows you when your videos get the highest engagement.
Don’t forget that TikTok users come from around the globe, so your audience may not be in the same time zone as you.
Figure out when traffic is high on TikTok, and post your videos at the busiest times!
Create Multiple TikToks Each Day
You’ll get more exposure the more content you post. Because posting one TikTok means a range of random users will see your video, the more you post, the more traffic you’ll get!
And the more your name will get out there among the masses. Don’t be afraid to post lots of interesting content!
Quality Over Quantity
Most videos on TikTok are watched on people’s phones. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be taking care of quality. Frame properly, light well, and record audio as high-quality as possible.
These things will make your video stand out. And if you want to get noticed by the algorithm, prioritize videos with higher quality. Also, remember to interact with your audience!
