What is TikTok? I don’t think this app needs any introduction as its ruling the internet from last 1 year with over 800 million active downloads. Initially it was a small android app for short video crafting related to dancing, comedy, and DIY videos but in 2020 it’s a trend in getting famous through Tiktok.

The name TikTok was assigned to musically app a few years back and it was meant for only fun and time pass but these days it’s used by entrepreneurs, cricketers, students, and movie stars too.
We are addicted to Tiktok and a normal man uses this for 3-4 hrs a day. For some people it’s a useless app but for the real marketers it’s a Goldmine.
When Tiktok launched in India?
TikTok was never released specially for India. In 2017, it was launched on Google play store and Apple’s app store and became the #1 app within 1 year with over 1 million downloads.
Officially, we can say Tiktok was launched in India after it acquired musically in mid-2018. Musically was a famous video creation app until it was sold to TikTok for a Billion.

How to Post Engaging Content on TikTok
Content is the King; you might have heard this several times on the internet but no one cares right?
This is the reason why most of the people get low number of likes, subscribers and followers. It’s a simple phenomenon if you like something then only you’ll recommend and share it with others.
Its important to create unique, creative and high-quality content on TikTok if you want to grow your account. Daily millions of videos are getting posted on the platform but only a few gets viral. The reason being only a few people are working hard to create their own content and that’s the secret door to TikTok success.
Continuous and Smart Efforts are much needed if you want to become successful on TikTok.
There are lots of other things considered to post engaging content on TikTok. Some of them are listed below.
- Come up with a unique idea: Everybody says to get successful on TikTok you’ll have to follow trends but for me its different, you’ll have to create your own trend that everyone follows.
- Imagination and creativity got no wings but they can help you to reach skies. So, its better to create a single TikTok video in a few days but it should be engaging, creative and it should bound people to start making video like yours.
- Shoot Good Videos for TikTok: I think if you love TikTok then you might be having a good smartphone for sure. Video shooting doesn’t mean you’ll have to invest a good amount of money into it or need DSLR cameras and Drones.
It’s all about utilizing all your resources at one place. Like me give you some examples
You don’t need a high definition voice recorder that costs a few hundred dollars but you can use your mobile inbuilt microphone and trust me they are the best with no extra investment.
- Professional Video Editing Software: There are different video editing softwares available like Adobe Premier Pro, Camtasia, Filmora, Cyberlink Power Director if you are using windows OS but if you are a MacBook user then I recommend Final Cut Pro X.
These are the fully equipped softwares and you can easily learn them through YouTube as lots of tutorial videos are available there.
I know what’s you are thinking right now.
If you don’t have PC, how you can edit your videos?
Kinemaster is an android app that can be easily downloaded through Google Play store. 70% of the TikTokers are using it.
How to Shoot high Quality Videos for TikTok
For the PRO videos you need professional equipment like a
1. DSLR with 17-55 m f/2.8 lens
2. RODE mike for clear crisp sound.
3. Drone for capturing top angle outdoor videos.
4. Lightning setup for Indoor shooting.
These are the basic needs for shooting a professional TikTok video.
How to get viral on TikTok
There are different factors that determine whether you video will get viral or not. Video engagement plays an important role when it comes to ranking your video on TikTok.
Sometimes a normal video gets viral for no reason and sometimes a professionally shoot creative video remains normal.
Factor to Get Viral on TikTok
- You’ll have to post a lot of videos on daily basis, this will trigger TikTok algorithm to take one of your videos and make it viral overnight.
- Follow the latest challenges and create creative videos on the topic.
- Hashtag plays an important role for deciding the growth of your TikTok account. You should follow trending hashtags like #foryoupage, #TikTokIndia, #TikTokchallenge. These are the evergreen hash tags on TikTok and millions of videos are getting posted on daily basis.
- Get yourself updated with latest movie songs and dialogues. Use those short sound clips before it goes trending on TikTok.
- 99% of the TikTok community uses TikTok in built video editor and effects but I recommend you to use a good video editor on PC, this will help you to add more effects and enables you to do custom editing too.
How to Get More TikTok Likes
The content posted on TikTok are widely shared and liked by the TikTok community. Content creators are desperate to gain likes and followers. I have been a successful TikToker from last 1 year and let me share you some Tiktok insights to get your more Likes to your videos.
Share Your TikTok Videos on Social Sites: Publishing Your Video on TikTok isn’t enough to get more likes. You’ll have to take advantage of social sites like Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp and share your content in all these sites. Your video will get instant boost and that’s sometimes enough to push your videos in #ForYouPage on TikTok.
As per my experience adding a TikTok video link into WhatsApp status and Instagram Stories helps a lot to rank TikTok videos.
YouTube Compilation Videos: We all know YouTube is such a big platform to upload Videos but they are not restricted to post 15 sec or 30 seconds videos. You can upload videos of any size which is not possible with TikTok.
Now, I will guide you how you can use YouTube to get you more likes on your TikTok videos. First of all, create a new YouTube channel and upload your TikTok videos (4-5 video together) as a compilation video and in the description, box paste a direct link to your TikTok profile.
This approach will boost your TikTok account authority and traffic. Once you start seeing increase in views on your TikTok videos you’ll start seeing your likes increasing organically.
Be Dumb or Super Smart: Yes, it’s true I have seen this personally. If a TikTok videos gets viral then there are mainly two reasons behind this. If you do something super idiot or doing something exceptionally good then it will get viral.
I am not saying normal videos will never get viral but the chances are less. I am sharing everything here as per my experience of using TikTok from last 1 year.
Use a Third-Party Website to Buy Likes: Do you want to show your friends that your TikTok videos are getting insane views and likes then there is only one way to do so – buy likes and views from a good company that provides TikTok services.
If you are not familiar with these companies then do comment below this post and I’ll let you know the names and direct website URL of those companies.
I don’t recommend buying Tiktok services as its against their terms and your account may get ban.
Join TikTok Groups: There are hundreds of Facebook, Telegram and WhatsApp groups for exchanging Likes on each other videos. You just need to join any 10-15 groups and provide your TikTok video URL there. You’ll start seeing likes on your videos instantly.
Suppose a group is having 100 member and you join 10 groups. You can easily reach 1000 people to get you TikTok likes. But there is a catch here, you’ll have to like other’s videos too.
Collaboration with other Users: Make videos in Collaboration with other users are always beneficial to grow your TikTok account. This is a two-way marketing tactics, you and your collaborating TikToker can reach more audience and can grow exceptionally together.
You might have seen different TikTokers posting videos with each other on the platform to attract each other’s follower. These are the essential things through which you’ll get more TikTok likes.
How to Get TikTok Followers
TikTok is among the only social app that can get you overnight fame and prestige. People post videos on Tiktok just for fun and every like they receive from fellow TikTokers motivates them to work even harder.
If you are a legit content creator on Tiktok but your video receives less likes and almost no followers. I have worked with lots of overseas clients to maintain their TikTok account.
There are only 3 ways to get TikTok followers for your profile.
1. Post lots of content on Tiktok with related high traffic hash tags. Tags are important to get your video viral on TikTok.
2. Follow niche targeted followers every 24 hrs, you can easily get up to 50% follow back ratio if you maintain a good profile on Tiktok.
- You should have an interesting profile with a BIO and image. Don’t forget to link your Instagram and YouTube channel So, you can get a better engagement on other two social profiles too.

Getting views on TikTok videos are very easy as compared to YouTube due to the weak tracking tools of TikTok. You can share your videos with your friends on WhatsApp, Facebook, and twitter and tell them to watch twice or thrice on different browsers.
With only 1 IP address you can generate over 1000 of views to your single TikTok videos. You’ll have to learn how to play with mobile browser Agents.

Getting famous through social sites is a dream of everyone but it also depends on your hard work and 90% Luck. You might have seen overnight stars like Sanjeev Srivastav( Dancing Uncle), Dhinchak Pooja, and Somvati Mahavar(Hello friend Chaii pee lo)
They used different social website like YouTube, Insta and Twitter to become famous. In 2020, the trend is with TikTok and if you want to become famous with Tiktok there are several options for that.
Create a PRO account on Tiktok and select a niche in which you are comfortable. I mean if you are comfortable in making cooking videos then do post only cooking related videos on your TikTok account. Possibilities are endless as hobbies varies from person to person.
The above strategy is important to become the top authority of a niche. Once you start making similar videos, people get to know that you are an expert in this niche and start following you.
Followers are the key to become famous on TikTok. I have seen famous personalities on this platform. Check here a similar example
CookingShooking is a very famous TikTok personality and as you can see in the above image, this account is dedicated to Cooking only.
Don’t follow more than 10 people on the platform, just focus on quality videos. People will start recognizing you soon, just keep up the great work.
How to Get Verified Account on TikTok
A verified TikTok account is having a blue tick mark on the profile that means the owner is a famous personality, brand or a very big influencer.
TikTok verified profiles are the public figures and their posted videos get viral easily. If this is the only reason you want to get your TikTok profile verified then you are mission a lot of things.
This is not the only benefit of having a verified account on TikTok but you can earn exceptionally good with it. I have seen people earning thousands of dollars by just promoting a brand on TikTok.
It’s obvious we all want quick cash schemes like I just told you but to reach on such a top level you’ll have to work hard.
If you are a normal TikToker like 99% of the crowd and wants to get verified TikTok account then you should follow below guidelines strictly and then contact the TikTok support to promote you to the verified club.
I am not saying people who followed these rules got 100% success rate but we are confident 60-70% success rate with it. If you get verified because of us do comment below to motivate our team and other TikTokers too.
So, let’s get started
Rule #1 You should have social profiles on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter before applying for TikTok verification. You should have a lot of followers or subscribers on these platforms (at least 500k) before applying otherwise TikTok simply rejects your process.
If you don’t have followers simply buy it from a provider as there are hundreds of people providing such services. I am not affiliated to any of those, use these services at your own risk.
Rule #2 If you can’t provide high quality videos to TikTok users then there is no door for you to enter verified accounts room. You can create good quality videos through your mobile phone but if you want to stand out from the crowd then you need professional videos.
Rule #3 Post videos daily and follow the latest trends and hash tags. With this approach your video will get maximum reach and likes.
Rule #4: Contact TikTok support firstname.lastname@example.org and send them a mail regarding account verification.
