TikTok is a relatively new platform having only been launched in 2016. However, it is by far one of the most popular platforms, if not the most popular, with over a billion active monthly users. It is said to be the most downloaded app on the app stores today. TikTok is fuelled by the younger generations and it is a great way to inspire young travellers to live out their dreams. 

If you are making use of TikTok in order to grow your presence, then you need to be gaining followers. This can be difficult with such a big platform and so much competition, however there are services like TokUpgrade which can be used to purchase TikTok followers, and that is what many businesses are doing to get ahead.

If you are are keen to grow your TikTok account while travelling, here are a few tips you should follow. 


1. Engage With Everyone

As someone looking for success on TikTok, you may think that the best way to go about this is just by posting as often as you can. While this is a good start, it is practically impossible to get noticed if you don’t have some kind of following to start off with. In order to receive engagement, you need to be putting yourself out there and engaging yourself. 

Engagement is one of the key factors to success on TikTok and is a way to become even more popular. As a traveller there are so many different ways in which you could engage with users and other fellow travellers in order to grow your account. You could start off by directly messaging people, liking and commenting on other users’ content, sharing their content, or even following other users that you would like to follow you. 


2. Hashtags

Some people tend to think that hashtags are just there to liven up their content a bit and make it look a bit more exciting. While they can do this, they are actually a very powerful tool that everyone should make use of when trying to grow their TikTok account. Hashtags are incredible when it comes to making your content more discoverable by those who would actually like it and those who fall part of your niche and target audience.

By using hashtags, your content gets pushed to a much larger audience that otherwise might not have seen it. When using hashtags as a traveller, you always want to make sure you are only using ones related to your content, rather than just using the most popular ones you can find. Of these, you can then choose the most popular in order to reach the most amount of people possible. 


3. Music

TikTok is an app that was formed on the concept of users lip-synching to their favourite songs and posting that to their page. These days, TikTok is more of a video sharing platform, but music is still deeply rooted into the app. 

One of the best ways to incorporate music into your TikTok videos as a traveller to get more followers, is by using music from the regions you are in. This is great for when it comes to sharing your content globally. Not only will you get a lot more recognition from locals, you will also be sharing local music internationally and encouraging others to discover new things. 


4. Trends

Last but not least, TikTok is big on the community side of things, and the quickest way into the community is by following the most current trends. Trends are different all over the world and as a traveller you want to hop on the trends that are most popular in the county you are currently in. 

By posting trending content, you give the TikTok audience exactly what they want which will in turn allow for your account to grow as more people become interested.
