How To Make Money From TikTok
Before we proceed, I want to make it clear that TikTok isn’t like YouTubing that you can just venture into because of the money. You need to be really passionate about creating videos before thinking of monetizing your channel.
If you explore the different ways I’d be listing out, you’d understand better on why I said such. You know? Creating an engaging video takes a lot of commitments, time and resources. It’s something you can do if you really enjoy people viewing your contents without getting paid.
Some ways you can monetize your TikTiok channel include:
• Growing and selling accounts
Just like Instagram, you can make money from TikTok by growing and selling accounts. This is becoming popular as the days go by, and one good thing is that there’s are always ready buyers waiting for active accounts to buy.
If you intend growing an account to sell, I’d recommend you stick to one niche. Whether dance, fashion, cooking, humour, lip-syncing videos or art and craft.
• Selling TikTok likes and followers
You can start selling TikTok followers and likes to other users. Some websites sell them for as low as $2 for 100 followers. So if you learn the craft, getting customers won’t be an issue since the niche isn’t competitive yet. You can also consider creating a website at a very affordable rate, it’ll help give you an edge over your competitors.
In addition, having a website will help build trust among your customers, while giving you exposure on Google and other search engines.
This is another popular way of making money on TikTok. You can collect donations in the form of coins from your fans and followers, which you’d, in turn, convert to cash. This is one of the most amazing features I like about TikTok, users can now appreciate their favourite content creators right on the platform.
The coin feature isn’t exclusive to TikTok along, you can also find something similar on Likee and Twitch. In TikTok, a hundred coins go for $1.69 and users can withdraw their earnings as soon as they reach a $100 threshold. Withdrawal is strictly via PayPal.
• Tiktok ads
You can also make money from promoting your brand/products (or services) via the TikTok ads platform. To advertise, head over to their official website and click on advertise on TikTok on the menu bar.
You can also promote your brands without having to pay for ads. For example, if you sell toys, you can start creating/posting videos of kids riding your toy cars and other similar stuff. This will, in turn, motivate people into sharing your contents if they find them interesting.
• Manage influencer campaigns
There are many brands in search in search of influencers to promote their brands on TikTok. You can act as a middleman, who will connect the influencers to the advertisers while earning some commissions.
This method isn’t just exclusive to TikTok, you can also use it to make money from Twitter, Instagram and other social networking platforms.
• Offering management services
You can also make money from TikTok by offering management services for creators. It’ll involve creating/editing the contents, growing the accounts and even more.
If you’re talented ins tory telling, you can definitely apply that to offering management services to TikTok creators.
If you’re a TikTok pro, I mean someone that can grow a 10,000 views video to 100,000 views, you can offer consultation services to other TikTok creation. This, of course, isn’t free, the creators would have to pay you for the services.
This, in fact, is one of the easiest ways of making money from your TikTok if you’ve garnered millions of followers.
