Now that you have a good idea of how to make TikTok videos that go viral, it is now time to learn tricks for growing your TikTok account. The creation of viral content is obviously key to gaining followers, but there are other tips for growing your following on TikTok, which include:
Interacting with TikTok Users
Interacting with other TikTok users is a simple way to grow your TikTok account. Did you like a video posted by a TikTok user? Leave a comment on that video. This works particularly well on videos from creators that create content that’s similar to yours. Alternatively, if you run an Instagram page, you can buy likes along with engagement from a trusted brand like Superviral.
By engaging with any social media platform’s users, we recommend that you also expand your circle in your own niche. The visibility of your profile can be increased because users will see your profile in the comments and be more inclined to visit your page.
With that in mind, try being as genuine as possible in your comments. Authenticity is highly valued and you obviously wouldn’t like your comment to be viewed as spam. Put in the effort to show that you really loved that specific TikTok user’s content.
Make Use of TikTok Features Like Duets and Stitches
Besides interacting with people on the platform, you can also get more TikTok followers by making use of features like Stitches and Duets. With TikTok Duets, you can split-screen with another creator’s video while Stitch is used for adding to the end of another user’s video.
Both features are an excellent way to capitalize on the trending videos on TikTok that are already popular or viral. You can build your own views from there, which may potentially lead to gaining new followers on TikTok.
See a video of somebody explaining a topic that you are particularly knowledgeable about? Stitch with them and elaborate further on what they are saying. See a popular TikToker lip-synching a duet? Duet them by lip-synching the other part.
You have virtually limitless ways to get creative with these features!
Finding the ideal number of times that you should post on a weekly basis varies depending on the platform you are using. TikTok is particularly unique because posts don’t seem to have the same shelf life as they do on other platforms such as Instagram. There’s a lot of debate regarding how the algorithm works, but based on research, it is possible for a video posted a while back to blow up again suddenly.
Do you think you can post several times each day? Do it! TikTok even recommends posting anywhere from 1 to 4 times each day in the beginning. Posting regularly increases the chances of the video appearing on someone’s TikTok For You Page (FYP) and generally having people see your content.
That said, the quality of the content you post on TikTok is still important. If you have decided to post multiple times each day, make sure that you create content specifically aimed at engaging with potential followers.
Mind Your Captions
TikTok may have a 150-character limit for your caption, but it isn’t something you should overlook. You might be tempted to maximize the character limit with as many hashtags as you can. However, it is better to really try hitting keywords relevant for your niche. Here are some good tips from Hometownstation
Your caption is the easiest way for people to see exactly what your video is about without the need to watch it. If you are looking to grow your TikTok followers, you must treat your caption as if it is your video’s elevator pitch.
Another effective tip when it comes to TikTok captions is to try creating a short and snappy caption to drive engagement. You can do this by either asking a question or writing a caption that’s guaranteed to invite a response.
You Are Good to Go!
Now you know exactly how to get more followers on TikTok and grow your account. You might have a better understanding of how to do well on the platform and how to fully optimize your account. With all these tips in mind, keep on putting out creative content consistently and your account will definitely grow.

How to Prepare for a Long-Distance Move
More than 27,059,000 people move each year, whether traveling across the state or the country. Regardless of when you’re preparing for a long-distance move, there are several things you’ve got to be aware of ahead of time.
We’ve created a checklist that you can use full of packing tips and other things you need to know, like the importance of hiring movers to aid in the big move. The more prepared you are, the easier and more stress-free the move will be.
Get ready to settle into your new home after you check out these need-to-know packing tips below.
When moving to NY from California, you need to plan ahead. You need to do this to get everything in order, such as shutting off the utilities and turning it on at the new location before you’re scheduled to arrive.
The last thing you want to do is risk arriving at your new place and not having running water or working electricity when you get there. Another reason you want to plan ahead is that if you’ve decided to hire movers, you’ll need to coordinate the day they plan to pick up your items and deliver them to the new house.
Again you don’t want to arrive at your home and the movers not arrive with your items on the day you expect them to. Not only does this leave you without your necessities, but it could also mean you pay additional delivery fees that you’d not planned for.
If it helps, you could make a list of everything you need to do before you are set to move. We recommend making this list ahead of time so that you don’t feel rushed at the last minute to get everything completed.
Moving lots of items a long distance can be tricky, especially if you’re not used to driving a moving truck. Before you’re set to move, make a list of the best movers in your area.
You can do this by creating a list of mover names and estimates from your area. Ensure you have them clarify what you’re paying for because most rental companies provide a specific number of miles locally and out of state that could increase your overall rental price.
You’ll also want to inquire about the insurance needed to schedule movers to come and help transport your items. Ensure you get the estimates for each type of vehicle they offer.
When the move is complete, the larger the vehicle and the more movers you need, the higher the rental price. Once you’ve decided which moving company you’re going to work with, take the next steps to set your reservation.
If you’re making the appointment over the phone, ask the company to send you a confirmation email once the phone call has concluded. This will ensure you have tangible evidence of your appointment reservation just in case something comes up the day of the move where you need to contact the moving company.
When you move a long distance, it’s in your best interest to only pack the items you need and discard items you no longer use. The best way to do this is to take some time to declutter your home before you begin packing.
Make a pile of the items you need to get rid of, whether that means donating or discarding them accordingly. While it might prove to be a time-consuming process, in the long run, it will pay off when you don’t have to do these things while unpacking in your new home.
This is especially true if you’re downsizing and don’t have enough room to store all the items that you have currently in your home or apartment. Another reason to declutter your home is so that you can effectively determine how much packing material you need to pack, such as boxes and packing tape.
Check your local area for packing items because there are several places online where people want to get rid of their extra boxes for free. This can help you to save on packing expenses.
When you move into your new place, the last thing you want to happen is for essential items to be mailed to your previous email. This means you need to take the steps necessary to forward your mail to your new address, which can be done online via the united states postal service website.
When forwarding your mail, ensure you list the names of everyone moving and the address of the new home. Then you will need to specify a date when you want the mail to begin being sent to the new location.
Along with forwarding your mail, you need to remember to change the address on other government documentation, such as:
- Car registration
- Drivers license
- Voter registration
When you don’t place your new address on these documentation forms, completing other things you need to complete after you’ve moved can become challenging.
When you’re moving a long distance, the last thing you want to do is travel back to your previous residence to take care of things that should’ve been completed before the move.
When preparing for a long-distance move, you need to know several things, such as ensuring you forward your mail ahead of time. You should also remember to schedule movers and request estimates to help move your belongings from one place to another.
