1 How to get more followers on TikTok

If you are new to TikTok, you will notice relatively quickly that you can quickly get new fans and followers with little effort and despite a lack of awareness. Sophisticated algorithms ensure that good content is displayed to many users and prevails over other posts - even if you are not a well-known influencer or Twitch star. The important thing is that the posts are imaginative, unique and interesting! On TikTok, videos go viral quickly, which can lead to you getting hundreds of new followers from a single video. That said, it goes without saying that even on this popular platform, there is no universal recipe for limitless success. However, there are a few things you can do to significantly increase your chances of gaining new followers. We'll show you what they are in this chapter.

1.1 Practice and get feedback from friends

 Before you post your first video, it can be helpful to try out the app a bit and see what you can do with it. After all, TikTok's feature set is quite large and offers numerous ways to personalize and creatively refine your videos. So, as a novice TikTok user, it might be helpful to save your first steps with the app. Within the app, there's a "Drafts" feature where you save your videos that you haven't published yet. Before publishing, you can first ask friends and family what they think of it to get honest and direct feedback. Especially in the beginning, suggestions from outsiders are pretty important, because they help you put your content in the best possible light on TikTok. So before you send your first cool video into the never-forgetting ether of the Internet, you can first ask people close to you for feedback. But of course, that's not a must.

1.2 Make sure your camera quality is good

Many TikTok videos are recorded directly with the phone camera, which means that the camera quality should meet a certain quality standard if the uploaded videos are going to be viewed by many people. Of course, it doesn't have to be the best iPhone with the best camera. Often, it's enough to clean the lens before recording and make sure the image is clear and sharp. It's also important to know that the front-facing or selfie cam on just about all current smartphones has a much poorer image quality than that of the actual main camera.

This way you'll get a crisp picture, but of course it's only optional. There are also content creators who create the videos with their front camera and get thousands of views. In the end, it's always the content of the video that counts! 

1.3 Be constantly active

Regular activity is extremely important not only on Instagram, Twitch and YouTube - on TikTok, too, the more constant and regular the content output, the better it is for your growth. In the fast-paced times we live in, a lack of activity can quickly make you forgotten, especially by your followers, and the TikTok algorithm will no longer push your content the way you want it to. However, the rule "quality over quantity" is of course also applicable to TikTok. Good videos and constant activity are the keys to success when it comes to generating new followers. If you post 10 new but low-quality and low-content videos every day, it can even have the opposite effect, leading to hardly any new followers or even losing followers. So make sure to find a good and healthy balance here as well. 

1.4 Networking on TikTok - network with other creators

We're not talking about necessarily exchanging ideas with other creators so that you push each other, but about appreciating other users' content by liking, commenting or even duetting with a video. This way, you're not only supporting the unique community spirit behind TikTok, but you're also staying present. Commenting in particular can be very helpful in this case, as it allows other users to click directly on your name to get to your channel. With "Duet" or "Stitch" it is possible for you to react to videos with a video and share this video on your account. This has been used to create unique music collaborations within the app, for example, or just funny reactions. Be part of the huge TikTok network and constantly expand your bubble. 

1.5 Stay unique

Trends, challenges and using certain viral hits is all well and good and even important to grow on TikTok. However, you should always stay yourself and not start just copying other creators. TikTok is a platform for creators and if you notice that you are currently lacking inspiration and ideas, we recommend that you just take a little break to gather new ideas. Because on TikTok, people who are authentic, sincere and honest are especially popular. So it's just like in real life: Just stay yourself and you'll see that the successes will come on their own.

Certain challenges are covered in the mainstream media and hotly debated across all social strata. Social media can do all of that. TikTok has opened whole new doors here thanks to its innovative way of working and regularly certain dances, songs or challenges go viral. But should you jump on the hype train to get new followers? Absolutely! Just make sure you stay individual and try to put your own personal touch on it. Using specific hashtags can also help you grow your community on TikTok.
