Discover how buying TikTok followers could be worth your money, but only if you take the time to make it work!
TikTok is without a doubt the most popular and viral social platform in 2020. As an early adopter you have a leg up on all the recent wave of new users as you have experience and most likely some sort of genuine following on your account. But you may be wondering, how can I take it to the next level, go viral and reach an audience that is actually interested and engaged in my content. Well you are in the right place, continue reading and I hope you will be able to use a few of the learnings I myself have experienced when trying to grow a TikTok account.
Why is TikTok such a valuable social media platform?
Numbers don’t lie!
TikTok has over 800 million monthly active users and this is only growing every month! Of these 800 million monthly active users, 41% of them are aged between 16 and 24 which gives you a really good understanding of the type of audience on TikTok. So we know the numbers are there, (and they are comparable and even surpassing that of Instagram) but how do we reach our target audience and what can we do to grow our following?
We have identified 4 key factors that contribute to the success of your TikTok growth
- Keeping on top of TikTok trends
- Creating unique TikTok content (having a point of difference)
- Use the right Hashtags!
- Using a service to organically increase your following (such as TokGrowth)
Argh! I know some of these things are obvious and some potentially controversial, but we are about to deep dive into each point to understand exactly what we are talking about, so don’t leave yet!
1. Keeping On Top Of TikTok Trends
TikTok is a viral social platform meaning to maintain relevance you want to be always creating content around the most recent trends. These are usually videos of challenges/dances that the top TikTok influencers are all doing and getting involved in. We recommend following some of the most popular TikTok users and ensuring that as soon as a new viral challenge is created, you get right onto creating your own unique version of the challenge. This gives you a great chance to get exposed to a wider audience of people searching for the challenge.

2. Creating Unique TikTok Content
Add you own flair! We touched on this in the previous point, yes, stay on top of trends and challenges but also make sure you are always adding your own style to your content. This is what sets you apart from the rest who are simply just regurgitating content without being unique. On top of recreating challenges, have a go at trying to create your own challenge in the hope of it going viral. You want something that is somewhat easy to follow (the easier it is the more people will give it a go), is unique, has an awesome soundtrack is funny and is accompanied by a unique hashtag.
3. Use The Right Hashtags
Now isn’t this flowing nicely. Unique hashtags for your unique content is very important, but so is using trending hashtags to ensure you are showing up for volume searches. The more people that are searching the hashtags that you use, the more likely your are going to get reach an expanded audience and grow your TikTok account. There was a great article written on the importance of hashtags for TikTok growth and even a list of the most popular hashtags on TikTok which you can read more about if you are interested. We have listed some of the most used hashtags on TikTok, very generic I know but simply adding a few of these into relevant videos you post, boosts the chances of you being seen by the masses and hopefully ending up on as many ‘For You’ pages as possible:
4. Using a service to organically increase your following
Controversial? Yes. Wrong? No, as long as you know what to buy and from where. Now, the reason why I have put this point last is because this is the last thing you should focus on when growing your TikTok account. If you don’t have or aren’t doing any of the previous steps laid out in this article then there is no use paying for a service to increase your TikTok following.
Stay away from any company that is selling you followers or fans, generally they will have a tagline on their website such as: Buy TikTok Followers or Boost TikTok Fans etc, this is NOT what you want. Instead, look for a company such as TokGrowth who will organically increase your TikTok account. Company’s like TokGrowth won’t make you famous overnight, but what they will do is steadily boost your TikTok following with real users who are most likely to engage with your content — this bit is key, engagement is EVERYTHING in this day and age, and is one of the core factors to the success of growing your own TikTok following and becoming a TikTok influencer.
To wrap everything up, anyone that has the drive to put in the work can become a TikTok influencer. By following the 4 steps in this article, you will maximise your TikTok presence and give yourself the best chance at ‘Influencer status’. Remember, when considering taking your TikTok growth to the next level and engaging a company to assist, always look for a service that will boost your following organically.
TokGrowth is a company I personally tried and had great results with. If you are unsure if a company is legit, you generally want to check out their ‘How It Works’ page where you can see exactly how your following is going to be increased. An example of a good service (as previously talked about) and here is an example of a bad service.
If they guarantee followers they are most likely not a legit way to increase your following. Remember, to simply buy TikTok followers will not make you famous, you need engagement from real people too!
Let me know how you get on and good luck!
