In this post, we will show you how to use the app’s features and audience to increase your TikTok followers.
Watch out! Don’t buy TikTok followers if you’re looking for a fast (and often low-quality) boost. Instead,
focus on organically growing the audience (that is, with great content posted often). Any app, blog, or social media
account that claims to increase your TikTok followers could be a total scam or use dirty methods.
How to Grow Your TikTok Following
The best way to gain more TikTok followers is to create excellent content, but there are several other ways to gain
exposure on the social media site.
1. Fill out your profile fully. Having an interesting-looking profile that showcases your personality or brand
will increase your chances of gaining followers.
To customize your profile picture, video, name, username, bio, and optionally add nonprofit, Instagram,
or YouTube links, tap Me in the bottom menu, then tap Edit profile.
2. On TikTok, you will find people you already know. If you’re starting from scratch, you can easily gain a
few followers by simply following people you already know or on other social networks and receiving a few follow-
Tap Me in the bottom menu followed by the person and plus sign icon in the top-left corner of your
profile. From here, you can search for a particular username, Invite friends, Find contacts, Find Facebook
friends using the search bar.
3. Follow and interact with accounts that you are interested in. If they like what they see, people who see
you as a new follower will decide to check out your profile and follow you back.
The Discover tab is the most convenient way to find new accounts to track. Tap Discover in the bottom
menu to watch videos and follow their creators, or tap any of the trending hashtags to watch videos and follow
their creators using the search bar at the top.
Tip: Although it’s fine to follow famous accounts with large followings, smaller accounts are more
likely to recognize you and follow you back. Following accounts that post similar content to yours will also
improve the chances of being followed back.
4. Make fantastic videos and share them with the world. People would want to follow you to see more of
what you’ll share if your content is fun or informative.
You are able to innovate your videos by:
Observing common TikTok videos to see what’s working well;
Choosing a popular theme for your videos, such as dance, lip-syncing, education, tutorial, comedy, or a
social media challenge;
Upgrading your video equipment (such as your camera and lighting).
5. In your captions, use hashtags. Using hashtags makes your posts more discoverable, potentially
increasing your chances of attracting new followers.
Consider these ways when deciding which hashtags to use:
Look up hashtags that are relevant to your industry (including those used by popular accounts and
posts that have gone viral).
Make a list to use as a guide when creating captions.
Before uploading, always search the Discover tab for trending hashtags to see if your video is important
to any of them.
Take part in current hashtag competitions or start your own.
Tip: In a caption, you can use as many hashtags as you want, but keep in mind that captions are
limited to 100 characters, so choose wisely.
6. Examine the data to see what’s working. You can make more of those types of videos to keep growing
your followers when you know which videos correlate to the most important increases in followers.
If you haven’t already done so, upgrade to a Pro account to gain access to your analytics.
Tap the three dots in the top right corner after tapping Me in the bottom menu. Then choose Manage
Account > Move to Pro Account.
To set up your Pro account, choose Creator or Business and follow the instructions.
You’ll find a new Analytics feature under Account in your Settings tab, which includes a Followers
tab that displays audience growth and insights.
7. Maintain a regular posting schedule. If you post new content more often than once every few weeks or
months, you’re more likely to gain followers.
Use your analytics to determine the days and times your audience is most involved, and then schedule
your posts accordingly. The more your current followers interact with your content, the more likely you are to appear
in the For You tab of new people who could become potential followers.
