TikTok - The modern social media

TikTok is a young social network that is growing rapidly.

At the beginning of 2020, the audience on TikTok was more than a billion users - more than on YouTube or Instagram. In the UK, 20 million people visit TikTok every month. And all of them are potential customers. According to TechСrunch, the popularity of the application among young people will only increase. But now in TikTok appears more and more solvent audience.

At TikTok, users can post 15-second videos. Entertainment videos are gaining millions of views. Thanks to audience loyalty and low competition (when compared with other social networks), TikTok opens up opportunities for anyone who wants to promote their account, monetize it, and earn real money. Success in this matter depends on the availability of free time, knowledge and skills, a creative approach, and a desire to work. Everyone will find a way to make money at TikTok.



Method 1. Advertising music tracks

Most videos in “TikTok” are released to music. This helps the tracks gain popularity with the audience because other bloggers begin to repeat the original video and promote the author.

So, less popular performers turn to tickers with a request to record a video for their song. You can independently search for “customers” in different musical public places where novice musicians upload their tracks. Then you can shoot videos for their songs, record covers, come up with challenges, etc.

Recording clips in “TikTok” is quite simple, so hundreds and thousands of videos are published per day, due to which audio tracks can quickly reach a wide audience. As for payment, “TikTok” is a young advertising platform, so no one knows the high prices and specific amounts. As a rule, the cost of a video for an audio track of a customer is 200-500 rubles. And this is if there are more than 50 thousand subscribers in the account. But given the pace TikTok is developing, ad prices will rise over the years.



Method 2. Collaboration with brands

This method of earning smoothly migrated to “TikTok” from “Instagram”. The scheme works something like this: you have a thematic blog dedicated, for example, to drawing or cosmetics. You are gaining popularity, and manufacturers of the corresponding product offer cooperation as an ambassador. You are provided with a brand product - and you shoot videos with it, place a logo, or other types of hidden advertising on the video. This type of advertising is called product placement. You can also create and publish viral videos sponsored by the brand, as well as promote various challenges launched by the brand using the appropriate hashtags.

 Earnings of a blogger can reach hundreds of thousands per month. It all depends on the size of the audience that you can influence. You can agree on a monthly payment amount or payment based on the number of videos released, views, or subscribers. You can promote your account and wait for offers. And you can take the initiative and choose the clients yourself. To do this: look for profiles on Instagram selling branded clothing or products of their own production. In general, choose the product category that suits you. Having decided, write to the account holder and offer to shoot. But you should count on cooperation if your account has at least 10-20 thousand subscribers.

The disadvantage of these earnings is that only one brand will have to advertise. Otherwise, your account will turn into an advertising channel, not an entertainment platform.



Method 3. Collaborate with other bloggers

You can cooperate with other tik tokers in terms of mutual PR or advertising. This allows you to attract a new audience. Joint videos, collaborations, creatives, challenges, mention of other users, and more. There are many options.

You can collaborate not only with tickers but also with bloggers from other social networks. Through your account, in “TickTock” you can redirect an active audience to “Instagram” or “YouTube”. Thus, you can advertise the blogs of those who are promoting in other social networks.



Method 4. Monetization of live broadcasts

The application allows you to conduct live broadcasts and make money on it. But keep in mind that live broadcasts are available to users whose accounts have at least 1000 people subscribed.

There are 2 ways to make money on live broadcasts.

 (1) You can advertise products or services on your live broadcasts. You can find an advertiser or promote your product.

 (2) You can monetize live broadcasts at the expense of viewers who will send donations. How does this happen? In the application settings, there is a section for buying coins. The minimum purchase is 100 coins in the amount of 75 rubles. For these coins, you can buy stickers and give them to the authors of live broadcasts. And the user to whom the sticker was presented can withdraw 80% of its value to the card.



Method 5. Maintain other people's accounts

Many stars and businessmen are aware of the need to have popular accounts in “TikTok” but do not have the time and desire to do so. They are ready to pay someone who will lead and promote their account in a quality manner.

Therefore, if you have gained experience on your blog, you can become a content manager or administrator of someone else’s account. Your responsibilities will include: writing scripts for videos, writing TORs for photographers, looking for promotion channels, working with an audience, editing videos, etc. That is, you will have to perform the full range of work on account management. The approximate salary of an administrator is from 15 thousand rubles. Freelancers exchange will help you find orders.



Method 6. Earning on affiliate networks

The promoted account in “TikTok” can be used to earn money on advertising CPA offers. Scheme: create interesting videos, publish, indicate in it links to your accounts on YouTube, or on Instagram. And you merge traffic from them to an affiliate link. Why is the user so long? And the thing is that on “TikTok” you can’t leave links to third-party sites. You’ll have to indicate in your profile a link to Instagram or YouTube.

When choosing products for advertising, you need to focus on the main audience in your account. Since most often “TikTok” is watched by youth, the most optimal cooperation options are offers that offer clothing, cosmetics, games, and other entertainments. The most popular programs in the UK. Here you can find offers on any subject.



Method 7. Selling videos to other users

There are always more people who want to have a popular account in “TikTok” than those who can shoot interesting videos. Therefore, you can make money by shooting or editing videos for other users. To do this, you need to master the skills of video shooting and editing, be able to come up with and write scripts for videos, to understand the trends.

Prices for videos can be different - depending on the complexity. For example, typical videos that do not require special preparation or creativity will be cheaper than a custom-made video. A guideline in prices can be the photo stock, on which 15-second clips are sold for about $65 (for the exclusive sale of the clip).



Method 8. Order Congratulations

A popular option for monetization of an account in “TikTok” is congratulations to order. How does the circuit work? In the profile description, indicate that you accept orders for congratulations on your behalf to the relatives and friends of the customer. Well, then, according to the prepared scenario, record a congratulation and publish it on your channel.

It's great if you can sing or play musical instruments - then you can record a congratulation song. In any case, you can always come up with your own style and creative format. The amount of income depends on the promotion of your channel in “TikTok”. To do this, you need to dial at least 10 thousand subscribers.



Method 9. Integrate your business into the application

“TikTok” is still an untapped tool for promoting your business and attracting customers. Thanks to the untwisted channel, you can redirect traffic to other social networks and advertise your product. For example, a veterinary clinic may post videos with kittens and dogs. A craftsman can publish the process of creating a product, a make-up artist is vivid examples of transformation, etc. The main thing is to enter the theme of your business into the format of the application itself. Get creative and humorous. Add your logo to the video, attach a link to your “Instagram” so that users can quickly contact you.

Keep in mind that this method has one drawback: the lack of geo-referencing. For some types of business, location is not important. For example, if you sell something or provide online services, you can search for customers in different cities and even countries. But if geo-referencing is important for your activity, then the effectiveness of advertising will below. For example, offering hairdressing in Sochi is unlikely to attract customers from Moscow. But there are chances that local people will notice. So, in any case, there is a chance to find customers.



Method 10. Redirect traffic to other sites

We already mentioned this scheme earlier. But now it is proposed to redirect traffic, not to someone else’s account, but to increase the audience of their accounts in other social networks where views will already be monetized in a long known way. For example, if you already have a YouTube channel, then you can redirect your viewers there to “TikTok”.



Method 11. Earnings on likes and comments

Actual for any social network, because everywhere there are people who want to quickly promote their account. There are services ready to provide such a service. They hire people who like and write comments for a small fee.

It’s difficult to call it “income”, but as a way to earn a little money - quite. It is enough to register at once in several such services and perform simple tasks for which a nominal fee is charged. You can find such services on request in the search engine "payroll in TikTok". For convenience, we leave several suitable options: Tiktop-free, UNU. It is better to create several accounts in “TikTok” in order to distribute tasks between them.



Method 12. Selling accounts

If you are already an experienced ticker and figured out the secret of success in this social network, you can create “TikTok” channels for sale.

Scheme: open an account on a new phone number, upload videos to it, promote it, gain subscribers - at least 10 thousand people, and then sell the channel through account exchanges. Sales go through forums and exchanges of freelancers. Prices are different and depend on the popularity of the account. If you focus on what they offer, an account with 10 thousand subscribers will cost about 2 thousand rubles.

The problem is that there is no such active demand in TikTok yet. Accordingly, there are few sites for sale and a lot to not make money on it. But, given the rapid growth of the application, in the future, such a service as selling accounts will be popular. It used to be on Instagram, but now selling accounts there is a demanded and profitable activity. While you wait until the wave of orders reaches “TikTok”, you can promote several accounts.
