TikTok is all the buzz right now.
Everyone is getting on TikTok and posting content whether it’s people trying to get internet fame or it’s businesses trying to showcase their products and services or target potential customers.
And you might’ve seen TikTokers who earn lots of money from TikTok showing their faces and creating engaging content on TikTok. But not everyone wants to show their face on TikTok.
Maybe you’re just shy or you want to stay anonymous without actually giving away who you are.
If that’s you, don’t worry because TikTok is not only about showing your face.
There’s a world of content that you can create on TikTok without ever needing to show your face.
How do you go viral on TikTok without showing your face?
Now that you know that it is possible to create content on TikTok without showing your face, you might be wondering, what kind of content can you create that will get you viral without showing your face. Let’s go over some of them:
A lot of people think of Twitch or YouTube when they think about gaming videos.
But do you know that TikTok too is a great place to post gaming highlights?
And it doesn’t even require you to show your face.
All you need to do is capture highlights from the games you play, edit them and then upload them to TikTok.
Whether it’s an amazing outplay you got in Call of Duty or a nasty headshot in Valorant or just a funny moment.
All of this is great content that people love to watch and would definitely follow you for more.
● Product Unboxing and Reviews
Product Unboxing and Reviews is also one of the most viewed niches of content that people love to watch that does not require you to show your face at all.
All you need is a top-down camera pointed towards the products that you’re going to unbox and review.
This type of content doesn’t even need to be expensive. You don’t necessarily need to unbox an iPhone or a Macbook Pro, you can create simpler videos like “Random Amazon Gadgets Under $5” or “Random Amazon Finds You Might Need” which don’t cost a ton to make but still perform really well on TikTok, all without the need to ever show your face.
● Food Recipes
Similar to Product Reviews, food channels on TikTok too just need a top-down camera. Creating amazing and interesting food recipe videos don’t even need you to add your voice. Simply add text for every ingredient and step and you’re done.
“But what if I don’t know any recipes?” you might wonder? Just use recipes from different YouTube cooking channels and you can always ask people in your family for some really good recipes to showcase.
This one is a little bit on the expensive end but if you’re someone who loves to travel or if you travel a lot whether for work or some other reason, travel is a great niche for you as you only need to record and post the different things you do and the places you go to, all without showing your face.
● Dedicated Tech Content
If you’re a fan of Tech whether it’s Tech related news, Tech tinkering or simple things like “Do this to make your old PC faster”, creating content dedicated to tech is a great way to get amazing viewership on TikTok without showing your face.
“MrYeester” is one of the examples of a dedicated tech channels that blew up on TikTok by creating fun and educational tech videos without showing their face. So if you’re into this stuff, then go for it.
● Life Hacks
We’ve all heard of 5 Min Crafts, The absurd channel that posts weird and absurd life hacks.
But there’s no denying the fact that even though none of their “hacks” actually work, they’re one of the biggest channels on YouTube and TikTok, gathering millions of views on every single video they post. And it doesn’t require them to show their face.
● Art and Craft
Digital Art has boomed over the recent years, with art tablets and iPads becoming cheaper and much more widely accessible, a lot of artists have switched to digital art simply because it’s free and doesn’t require any paints, drawing canvas or any other materials.
And with almost every digital drawing app equipped with some sort of timelapse recording option, it’s easier than ever to make an artwork and have a timelapse video ready by the end of it.
● Facts and News
Creating Facts or News videos is probably one of the easiest videos to create.
Simply download the news you’re trying to showcase or in the case of facts, just use any royalty free footage and add text over it. Simple, easy and doesn’t require you to show your face at all.
● Inspiration or Motivation
Pretty much the same idea as facts and news, something motivational like a quote or a saying with soothing music and a soothing background video.
● Meme/Funny Video Reposts
A lot of people post fails or funny videos on TikTok, and there’s a lot of accounts that repost those videos.
People allow accounts to repost their videos because these accounts drive traffic towards the original creator.
On the other hand, people follow these repost accounts so that they can get their daily dose of funny content and memes on one account without having to scroll around TikTok.
Just make sure to credit the original creator when reposting someone’s content and you should be good to go.
But no matter what you do, we can all agree with the fact that getting initial followers on TikTok when starting out can be troublesome and takes a lot of time.

How to Hide your face
If it does come to the point that it requires you to create a video where you’d need to show your head, there’s still tons of ways to hide your identity.
Using a mask and a pair of sunglasses is enough to cover your whole face or you can come up with a full face mask that covers your entire face, say Marshmello or Daft Punk for example.
Hiding your Voice
Even in some of the niches mentioned above, you might still need to record a voice over or have some sort of talking required in the background. But it doesn’t need to be your own voice.
There’s plenty of real sounding text to speech softwares out there that you can use. Or if you want something more authentic, you can hire someone from a freelance website to do the voice overs for you.
