If you’re not already aware of the viral international app “Tik Tok”, where have you been hiding?! Tik Tok was created by 36-year-old Zhang Yimin who created the app in 2016. Not only is this platform poplar for making funny, crazy videos, but it has done wonders for artists and the Music Industry. It has created many new stars with its ability to make music viral within hours and names such as:

  • Doja Cat
  • Lil Nas X
  • Blanco Brown
  • Arizona Zervas
  • BENEE
  • Bbno$
  • Ashnikko
  • Megan Thee Stallion

Have become some of the artists in which their music has shot to instant stardom. This article is going to focus on how you can get your music out on Tik Tok and tips on how to do it efficiently!

Create A Dance

This one is the classic way to do it. When you’ve got your song on the app, create a dance that goes with it! You want a simple dance with not too many moves, so no matter what their ability is, fans can participate and join in. Remember Tik Tok’s can only go for 15-60 seconds so whatever part of the song you choose, make it the catchiest!

Consistent Posting

As I've said in past Newsroom posts like https://www.voyagercompetition.com/newsroom/6-ways-to-kickstart-your-music-career, posting consistently on social media is one of the most important things in reaching a large audience. Post the heck out of your song and don’t stop until you start seeing numbers go up. Even then, keep posting! It doesn’t always have to be in relation to your music, it can be random things which give fans a way to see another side of you. Contribute to different viral Tik Tok trends and stay relevant.

Share On Other Platforms

As an up and coming musician, you should already have many other social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and so on, so make sure when you post a Tik Tok, you’re redirecting your fans to your other socials! Tik Tok has a great setting where on your profile, it has direct links to your other sites, making it an easy way to gain more followers. It's all about building a community and Tik Tok is a great home base.

Hashtags

It might not be as efficient on other social networks but on Tik Tok, videos go viral with the help of hashtags! Not only does it help direct your video to the phones of those who would be most interested in it, but it gets you on the for you page #fyp. The FYP is the main page in which millions of users watch every day and if your video manages to get on it, you have a good chance of going viral! Make sure to use hashtags that are trending on the app when you post (it’ll give you suggestions as you’re typing them in, so use that as a guide!).

Happy posting everyone! Tik Tok is such a fun app so make sure your videos reflect that! We can't wait to see your music on Tik Tok soon, (Make sure to hashtag #voyagercompetitions whilst you're at it 😉)!
