How to Gain 1000 Followers on TikTok (From Scratch)
A constant in this entire post will be learning to come up with better video concepts for your audience.
You need to understand the niche you are in, and that people in different niches will want different types of content.
Discovering what your specific target audience wants will make the biggest difference. Your watch time and your engagement will increase, and so will your following.
With that said, if you know that your videos’ topics are relevant for your niche and you don’t get the views you want, maybe try to experiment with the time that you post. And make sure your video quality is on point.
With that out of the way, let’s begin with the tips!
Recreate a post that has done well for somebody else
On TikTok’s search bar, type the topic that you want to make a video about, and find content that has done incredibly well on the platform. Ask yourself:
- What can you learn from it?
- What do people look for in a video covering that topic?
Recreate those videos improving the description and the hashtags.
And make sure that you incentivize engagement in the last 3-4 seconds of every video. A simple “follow me for more!” is not going to work.
Convince the people that watch your videos to follow you by explaining what’s in your account for them. What’s the next logical thing they will want to see from you, after watching this specific video?
I can almost guarantee you that if you understand what made these videos successful, your video is going to do amazingly as well.
Well, because it has already done very well for someone else.
On the other hand, if you search for a topic that doesn’t have popular videos, maybe it’s not the right concept to target.
What the platform is trying to tell you in this situation is that TikTok doesn’t have an audience for that type of content yet, so maybe you will want to pivot your content strategy a little bit.
You need to learn to spot good-performing content ASAP and to recreate the elements that work.
That’s how you find what you should be posting on TikTok, what hashtags and sounds are trending in your niche, and even what length of videos are popular right now.
You don’t have to reinvent the wheel! Take advantage of the type of content that has done well in your niche in the past, and recreate it.
Learn to read these signals and you will be growing super fast.
Post consistently, ideally daily
To do it right, you will want to plan your content ahead of time. Keep an updated list of video topics to target so you don’t run out of ideas.
You may also try to film in batches, so you can upload daily but film maybe once a week. Recording daily can become a strain over time.
With that said, don’t make videos for every person who’s on TikTok. Your videos’ topics must align with your target market and appeal to your specific audience.
Engage with people in and out of your videos
This may go without saying, but it never hurts to remember it.
Reply back to every comment on your videos, especially at the beginning of your TikTok journey.
The engagement on your content will go up, and people always appreciate those that are there for them.
Also, engage with other people’s videos on the ‘For You’ page. This will help people to discover your account.
To grow you have to network, so get your profile out there on other videos.
Do this especially with newer videos that don’t have a lot of comments yet. That will prevent your comments from getting lost between thousands of other comments.
And make these comments meaningful, maybe the creator even pins your comment at the top, giving you some extra exposure!
Use keywords in your captions
Besides hashtags, craft a meaningful description for every one of your videos.
That description should include some niche-specific keywords that help people to find your content.
Additionally, include text in your videos to make them visually engaging and to give a sneak peek of that video’s content.
Lastly, make sure the cover image captures people’s attention and has a bold text title.
