Whether you’re in the process of building a successful network marketing business, an online brand, or a small business, I’m confident my hacks and tips will be helpful in growing your business. So let’s dive in!
First of all, I have a couple of questions for you:
Should you be on Tik Tok? Should you be shaking your booty and doing trendy dances in order to build your brand online or network marketing business? 🤔
Or… is it just a big waste of time? 🤷🏻♀️
When I first heard of the Tik Tok app, I was one of those skeptical humans and I thought “this is legit not for me!“
I did not want to shake my booty for followers. I also didn’t see a way to monetize my personal brand on the platform, so I decided to sit back and just watch. 👀
Looking back, I wish I hadn’t done that and would have taken action faster.
You can use all sorts of social media platforms to monetize 💵 your business online so why would it be any different with the TikTok app?
I’m here today to tell you that 📢 you can use Tik Tok videos to build your online brand or business without wasting time on silly dances.
When I first created a Tik Tok profile, I was super skeptical.
I decided to use it to play around with Maddy (my almost 1 year old) just for fun and to show my personality. That was my thought process.
Then I started to see that I was gaining traction with views even though I had a little amount of Tik Tok followers. I made a Tik Tok video where I was doing muah with my baby (only a 15 second video), and it literally went viral!!
That’s 10,000 humans that I reached in less than 30 days! That’s cray cray right? So what did I do there? Without even knowing it, I created a piece of content on Tik Tok that is evergreen. ♻💰
And I’m still getting likes on it, still getting comments on it, and still connecting with other moms who think its adorable. I’ve attracted my target audience to my other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
Isn’t connecting with people the goal in achieving network marketing success? Isn’t it critical to creating or building your online brand?
You want to create eye contact and be in as many people’s spaces as you possibly can. 🤳🏻 It’s that simple.
So, let’s talk about the elephant in the room for a sec. Is Tik Tok safe? Every social media platform has terms and conditions that you’re signing off on whether you read them or not.
My location is never public, it’s always private. If I do post where I am, it’s usually a day later. I highly suggest that if you have a lot of issues about privacy, go ahead and sign off all your social media accounts.
At the end of the day, we’re all signing wavers. 📝
I’m personally okay with this because I like being shown the content on social media that I want to see. I’m okay with it because I’m not posting my location.
I’m okay because I get to control the content that my audience sees. Not only that, if there’s weirdos, I can just block them. 🚫
At the end of the day, I know that if someone really wants to find out about me bad enough, they can. We live in the age of Google so it is what it is.
So I’m not stressed out because I don’t live in scarcity mode, and I want to encourage you not to stress out either.
Maybe at this point you’re still not convinced that the Tik Tok video app is for you. If you’re still not sure you can monetize this platform for your business or brand online, let me ask you a question:
I was skeptical at first too, until it happened to me.
I want you to go ahead and create an account on Tik Tok. Play around with it and figure it out. I promise you that if it brings brand awareness to your business, it is worth your time.
I’m going to share some stats on Tik Tok that are going to blow you away. You’re going to want to create a Tik Tok account right away and get this party started! 💃🏻
Over 30%, (around 200 million) of Tik Tok’s users are over the age of 30. That’s my target market.
What’s your target market?
65% of Tik Tok users are female and 35% are male. My target audience for social media is women. Why wouldn’t I want to be where my target market is?
The average Tik Tok user opens the app 8 times per day. This means that I have the opportunity for my target market to see me 8 times per day.
One of my favorite things about Tik Tok is that I don’t have to spend hours making a video and editing it. I can create a piece of quality content in 5 minutes that has just as much traction as an edited 25 minute video on another platform.
I’m batching content and I get to wake up to new views and followers. I’m so in!
Everybody has the same opportunity on the Tik Tok app regardless of the number of followers you have. Tik Tok knows what you want to see by looking at where you’re spending your time and where you’re skipping past.
Tik Tok gives us an opportunity as online marketers to niche down our content to attract our target audience on social media.
I want my Tik Tok followers to watch my videos because they like seeing my videos, not just because they have to. I want followers who genuinely enjoy my content and want to learn or grow from me.
If you’re still not convinced Tik Tok is for you, I’m going to take one more shot at changing your mind.
Not only did I get a million views on a Tik Tok video I made, but I also got a million views on a hashtag I created #madelynsky (my 1 year old daughter).
I’ve been working on my Instagram hashtags for 2 years and I still don’t have a following like that!
I want you to think about your product, service, or business. Next, think of five questions people ask about your product, service, or business.
Once you’ve figured it out, go ahead and think of a 10 or 15 second video to post on Tik Tok.
Use a few related hashtags centered around that topic and BOOM 💥 you’ve just created a small piece of quality content that can draw more eyes to your business!
