How to Grow Your Tiktok Account to 1,000 Fans (and Beyond!) That Want to Buy Your Products Without Doing Any Dances
Unless you want to dance, then go ahead and dance!
No, Danielle, it’s not normal, but that’s what TikTok can do for you. From $0 to $5k to $12k in 6 weeks with an audience built on TikTok.
You already know that if you want to make money online selling information products or services, you have to get your Audience to notice you, pay attention to you AND trust you before you can ever make a sale.
And you know TikTok is the fastest way to do ALL THREE of those things.
But your follower count is abysmal. No one is seeing your videos. Your watch time is so sad you’ve just stopped looking at.
You don’t feel like waiting around forever for the blogging/email marketing feedback loop to let you know if you’re on the right track, either.
You want to know that what you’re doing now is working.
Now. Not 6 months from now.
TikTok is the shortcut to getting noticed, getting people to pay attention and getting people to trust you.
It’s time to finally grow your following of True Fans.
Imagine if you:
- Knew the topics that were going to get people to notice you and pay attention to what you have to say?
- Had accountability buddies that encouraged you to post every day, twice a day?
- Didn’t have to think about what video to make and what sound to use every day?
- Got feedback daily on the videos you made so that you could constantly keep improving instead of guessing at what’s working and what isn’t?
- Had access to tutorials for all of the controls on TikTok?
It’s Not Actually As Simple As Pick Up Your Phone, Record for a Minute, Hit Publish and Watch the Fans Flock to You.
But, it’s also not a WHOLE lot harder than that, either. There are a few simple strategies to learn that will make a world of difference. Couple that with consistency and you’ll see the growth that you’re hoping for.
I grew two separate TikTok accounts to 1,000+ followers in a week when I started implementing these strategies.
Marybeth (after floundering for months) grew by over 1600 followers in a month after she started these strategies.
Stephen helped one of his followers go from 56 followers to 1137 in a matter of a few days.
I know. Followers are a vanity metric. What’s the point if they don’t lead to $$?
She waited for a year before making a move but when she finally did…
You already know Danielle. She’s recently passed 100k followers.
She started with coaching clients, but she recently launched her first course, her first passive income product, and made over $6k at the launch.
That’s on top of her Coaching income.
And it’s passive so she can throw her focus completely onto her clients while making money with the course.
TikTok helped her quit her 6-figure corporate job…
Melissa made 16k in May with her audience built on TikTok, YouTube and Instagram.
She has an amazing engaged community on TikTok.
And Good Morning America discovered her through TikTok and invited her to speak on a segment with other 50+ Influencers.
Pretty cool thing to tell your grandkids someday.
Nana was on Good Morning America.
TikTok became her organic source for sales…
That’s Rachel from This Crafty Home.
Her Freezer Meal Plan Guides help busy moms stay sane at dinner time and let me tell you, there are a lot of busy moms looking for help on TikTok.
They love to watch her sped-up meal plan videos and she consistently gets traffic and sales from TikTok.
You know what all the TikTok gurus tell you when you are being consistent posting but you just aren’t getting any followers?
They tell you your content isn’t good enough.
It’s not necessarily true, though.
You might be making AMAZING content, but if you aren’t talking about the things your audience WANTS, they are not going to notice you and they certainly aren’t going to pay attention.
You’ve Seen the Viral Videos of Dogs and Crazy Dances and Maybe Even Crazy Dancing Dogs…
Sometimes people go viral with videos like that. But we don’t want you to go viral.
We want you creating videos that are going to reach the right people with the message they want to hear that gets them to follow you because they ACTUALLY LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY NEXT!
And that’s where things can get a little tricky.
With the TikTok Challenge, you’re going to learn the platform, what topics to cover, how to structure your videos, what a simple recording setup looks like, and how to use some of the simple features.
Before the Challenge even begins…
Before the challenge starts, you’ve got homework.
You’re going to read the Pocket Video Academy TikTok Guide so that you’re at least familiar with the way all of the controls work. (don’t worry, though, we aren’t doing any crazy complicated videos).
Even if you’re a TikTok veteran, you may find there are some tips and tricks in the guide that you didn’t know about.
You’re also going to watch the Social Media Content Workshop and start building a list of topics that will get you noticed (by the right people!) on TikTok.
This is really the key to growing on TikTok. It’s going to help you build that oh-so-important list of topics for videos.
By the time the Challenge starts you’ll be ready to start making videos.
So what happens when the Challenge starts?
- First, you’re going to be part of a private community on Circle where you can ask questions, get feedback on your homework and on your videos.
- When the challenge starts on the 12th, you’ll be making two videos a day. One talking head style and one with the sound choice of the day. We’ve selected popular, but evergreen sounds that work for any niche and that are actually really fun to use!
- When you’re done publishing your videos, you’ll share them with the group for feedback and encouragement.
- And I mean real feedback. Be prepared to hear the good and bad. If the topic doesn’t seem right or the video itself could be improved, myself, Marybeth and Stephen will be there to let you know and offer suggestions for improvement.
- We’ll encourage you to document your wins as often as they happen. To cheer you on, encourage others, and showcase the things that are working so that others can learn from you (and vice versa!)
Here’s what the TikTok Challenge is not going to be.
If you’re expecting follow trains and like for likes or any of that artificial engagement, this is not the place for you.
Those tactics don’t work and in fact they will backfire on you, just FYI, if you’re ever thinking about going that route.
If you’re in the challenge and someone else is in a niche that makes sense for you to follow and you enjoy the content they create and so you want to throw it a like, then by all means, do that.
But we won’t be encouraging you to like and follow everybody.
That’s just not how you find your Audience of True Fans.
There’s something magical that happens when you grow a social media following the right way.
You end up with people who look forward to your posts.
They comment and want to know more. They ask questions. They want advice.
When you have something for them to purchase that is going to help them to solve the problems they are facing, they will happily open their wallets if they have the means to.
I’ve had people ask for my Venmo on TikTok.
Or if I offer one on one coaching.
I’VE ONLY BEEN POSTING CONSISTENTLY FOR A FEW WEEKS!
That’s how quickly you can start to build that trust with a platform like TikTok.
