However, the same TikTok with the name of Douyin that is specially launched to target the rising Chinese market but the difference with the Douyin is the different set of servers to meet with China’s censorship policies.

The real 7/seven ways of making money with TikTok

The earning out of TikTok is done through different and multiple ways.

They are accessible and legit. But it requires the right amount of effort to keep going with as well as start expecting the results are generating after some time.

While some of the ways might be instant to get started with, but many would take your time plus the dedication to attract a following and build your profile.


Influence Marketing

 

social media influence

The day you install, register, and start using the TikTok app; well, that does not mean you have turned out to become the influencer. Or that you are up for becoming the influencer in a matter of days.

Well, it is not like that nor an easy task.

Firstly, you got to have thousands and thousands (sadly, not a few hundred) of followers on TikTok to fall under the radar of fetching the attention of the community.

And for that, you should come up with the unique idea to make your videos, upload them frequently, and stick to that cycle.

Celebrities are the god-gifted influencers without a single doubt. But, an ordinary person cannot be.

I meant I am not outpowering you to become influential. Yes, you definitely can! But to do that, it would take a lot of energy, time, patience, and of course, the determination to become one.

You cannot beat Britney Spears due to the same factor; popularity, but you can overcome so many competitions with your ideas.

Get yourself towards the following good mark of attaining a few thousand through the organic and ONLY organic ways.

And that is only possible when you have your ideas, your thoughts, and most importantly, your own opinion.

  • A prankster will attract the audience that love (or at least like this domain.)
  • A movie reviewer will get the attention of the audience that is movie-goer.

So, what you are? What kind of opinion did you get to show and guide the world with?

If you aspire some in the real world, why not give it a try into the virtual world as well?

But please, do not just try to fake it or gain or maintain through the flukes of luck. This has to be done all the way legal.

And when you have it (the right and live audience according to you) which listens to your opinion; start with the recommendation of services or products which brands would be glad to compensate you for your advocacy of their products and the services.

So, that is this easy to become the influencer and thus, conduct the influence marketing with your authoritative TikTok account.

The four/4 big accounts that TikTok have;

@lorengray – – Loren Gray >> 33.1m followers

@babyarielBabyAriel >> 29.8m followers

@kristenhancherKristen Hancher >> 23m followers

@jacobsartoriusJacob Sartious >> 20.9m followers


Cross-promote

 

cross promotions

And cross-promotion cannot be capitalized with only the monetary gains, please.

It means do it on the “you promote me, and I will promote you” basis.

And the promotion is done through various optionsโ€ฆ

  • Make a whole video about other TikTok account
  • Share their account
  • Mention them through their products/services
  • Add their logos in your videos
  • Place the dedicated stickers to promote them
  • Wear the promotional t-shirts or hats showing or representing their names

And any other cross-promotional ideas that you can devise.

In return, get precisely the same done by them to promote you.


Deals for brands

deals for brands

Wherever a social media network is boosting and tearing apart all of the progressive barriers, the brands do pay attention to take full advantage.

And TikTok is the brand that attracts a lot of younger audience to feed them with the entertainment-rich content. And with the rapid speed of progress of TikTok, the accounts that are generating the great content relevant to their audience and ultimately growing themselves, they often come under the radar of big brands.

So, that is your time!

Take full advantage of your efforts and hard-spent days to make your account to grow and charge the brands with an outstanding amount to promote them.

Charging a few hundred bucks and even thousands of dollars would make no difference to the brands, but! But always keep the negotiating door open.

Put aside your ego and think of striking a good deal out of it.

The brands always pay, so grow your TikTok account to grab the brand’s attention.


e-Commerce business

e-commerce

 

Enthusiastic of the cars? Wear fancy clothes?

Always fond of getting the great-looking watches? Love the interior decoration?

Whatever you do, and you are inclined to make the content about the same; then hop over this portion of monetizing your own TikTok account.

Get the products yourself, use, and give the honest review and ultimately, start to promote that.

Yeah, not anyone’s product I am telling you about to think of promoting as the e-Commerce product to sell but your own. Get it promoted and see what reactions you receive from your audience. If good and people are interested in buying from you, do that to pack and ship to the person’s address.

This way, you are not promoting other products to gain the sizeable commission. Sell your own and grow your business being operated through TikTok.


Affiliate marketing

affiliate marketing new

 

That is the earning avenue that will never die. Whatever the social media network or anything you use online, there are indeed the inevitable chances of doing the affiliate marketing the right way.

Though you may devise the few simple ways to do the affiliate marketing through TikTok. And I would suggest promoting the products through filming the video covering every aspect and the features that particular product hold.

But that is only possible if you have the enormous and real fanbase that you know is relevant to what you are going to promote as the affiliate.

You should not destroy the fanbase by recommending and coming up with the relevant product/service. The link that product/service up into the video’s description to get your audience flooded towards and count the commissions! ๐Ÿ™‚

Reminder, please! Get the relevant AND only relevant products/services to promote.


Shoutouts

shout-outs

Shoutouts are generally given at the time of starting the video, though it would not look okay to flood this short-lengthier videos you can still try.

So, talk with other TikTokers to get them interested within this offer of shout-outing them in your videos. But that offer will work best if you have the right amount of fanbase and offering this service on the affordable price range.

Enjoy the shoutouts that will pay you!


Sell your own

selling

 

It does familiarize with the e-Commerce business step, but it is a little different here. Sell whatever you have that can be beneficial for your fanbase. Anything in particular that you have in excess do try to politely and softly attempt to sell.

That could be risky, but it is worth a try, and you must not DO it every other day. Take the time delivering the best content to your fanbase to keep them engaged with you and do a single video based on the stuff that you want to attempt to actually sell.

Thus, target the ‘how to’ kind of videos to attempt with this try to test how this experience goes. Or do the few frames at the very end of such videos to feature whatever you are to sell.
