– Once your account has been set up, ensure that all contact information is accurate (including location) by going to “settings” on the app’s home screen. You can then edit these settings as needed – for example, unsubscribing from notifications so that you don’t fill up your phone with alerts when people like or comment on your posts.
– TikTok is a real-time app, so make sure you’re posting content consistently.
– You can upload videos, photos, and text posts to TikTok – even animated gifs! Tiktok offers many different editing tools for your images to help them look perfect before they go live.

- Post videos of your products.
- Show how to use the product in a video tutorial.
- Ask for feedback on TikTok from customers and fans.
- Promote your brand by making TikTok friends with other brands, influencers, or celebrities popular on TikTok. This way, you can share each others’ posts and also cross-promote one another! It won’t only be good for more exposure, but it will make them feel special. Why not treat them like an ambassador? They’re all about promoting themselves, so they’ll love being promoted too. The key here is consistency – pick at least two different strategies every week, so people don’t get bored seeing similar content over and over again.

- When you post, make sure to include hashtags relevant like #brandname and tags for a specific category of TikTok content (like Dance). This way, others will find your brand easily when they search for the right hashtag. It will also give people a sense of what type of posts you’re doing if they just come across one randomly because it may not have any branding.
- Use TikTok polls to get feedback from customers and fans on their experience with your company. You can do this by asking questions about satisfaction level or whether they would like an additional item. This will give people the chance to interact with your brand in a more personal way, which may lead to them purchasing something that they wouldn’t have otherwise.
- Post-TikTok stories from staff members or customers. These can be inspirational, like how one of your employees started working for you and overcame all odds.
- Share TikTok live videos and interviews about what it’s like to own your company. People love getting insider information on brands, so this is another excellent opportunity for TikTok.
