How do you get Viral Video Views on TikTok?
The holy grail of all social media content is that viral post.
Speaking of which, I finally got a video to get 35,707 views in less than a week!
The great thing about TikTok right now is that the number of creators is still much lower than the consumers of content.
This means the platform highly encourages creators and by doing so makes it easier to go viral on the platforms
That being said, you still need to understand the basics of how to make that happen.
A little background
I started my TikTok account in December 2019 after numerous pings by Gary Vee about it.
I learned a lot about how to use the platform and decided to do a basic user course.
I was so excited when a TikTok influencer, Maayan Gordon, with 1.7 MILLION followers reach out to me and wanted to do the course with me.
So, we did it together and we did a webinar to promote it.
Depending on when you see this, you might still be able to access the webinar at http://webinar.tiktokabc.com or the course at http://course.tiktokabc.com
What’s the secret?
So, how do you actually go viral on TikTok?
Just like any other platform, the secret is to understand their motivations and what makes other people’s videos go viral and then consistently create content.
When I did the course and webinar with Maayan, I only had around 200 followers, not a million.
Now I still only have less than 900 but I’ve been getting about 100-300 views per video.
I post pretty much each day so I’m consitent that way.
But that’s not what will get you viral.
What makes you viral on TikTok?
The reason my video got viral is because it followed many of the social media and some of TikTok’s rules
- I took advantage of a celebrity (they like that)
- I made it short
- I asked a question
- I got comments/engagement and replied to all of them
- I used a new feature (stitch share)
- I shared from a not 1 million+ account
- I used trending keywords
All these things help a video to go viral, but they aren’t the only things.
Some say to use trending music or sounds… while others suggest the trends in discover.
There are literally tons of ways to go viral.
Personally, I want to stay away from things that are completely out of my niche (which is building a business online) like hot chicks but you could do that if it made sense to you.
In the end, you want to be consistent and be true to your audience.
If you’d like to learn more about the course and webinar I did with Maayan and see what it’s all about you can watch the included video.
Hopefully, you’ll get a viral video and I’d love to hear about it.
