But did you know that the level of organic engagement is HUGE? Way more powerful than the oldies like Facebook, Instagram and even Twitter.

Keen to know more?

Here are a few TikTok tips you might like to get started

1. You can use TikTok like a search engine

Just like Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. If it has a search bar, you can use it as a search engine. Look for suggested keywords to search for in the search bar and comments sections.

2. TikTok makes it easy for people to find you using powerful SEO practices

The platform shows content to users based on posts you engage with and things you search for.

3. Hashtags are GOLD

They are a brilliant tool that offers a wide, global audience reach that will help you be seen, and get new followers with unrivalled levels of engagement. Broad hashtags like crochet patterns or dance moves will fill your followers’ feeds with thousands of posts. Making them more specific – #crochetforbeginners #ballroomdancemoves will attract people who are more likely to stick around and follow you.

Where to insert keywords on Tik Tok

  • In the post description (up to 2000 characters)
    In closed captions (these are automated, so make sure you say them in your video)
    In on-screen text

Have fun with it and try it out, you have nothing to lose!
