TikTok has made some MASSIVE changes to its algorithm. Hashtags are now irrelevant and views are harder to come by. So if you’re trying to go viral in September you need to remember these all-important tricks to beat their algorithm. Let’s break it down:
- Be niche specific – Hashtags are irrelevant unless you’re being niche specific. #foryyoupage, #fyp, #viral don’t work anymore. ONLY use hashtags that relate to exactly what it is your account/content is based on.
- Stop the scroll – Hooks are more important than ever, that intro scroll-stopping sentence at the start of your videos will be the make or break.
- Who are you? – Lock down what your account is about. What is your brand, who are you as a business and what are you actively communicating?
Due to the algorithm changes, people have been seeing a serious drop in views. So, if you’re looking to get your product or company out there, relearning TikTok can be frustrating – we get it. But trust us, implementing these points into your revised TikTok strategy is crucial to try and tackle TikTok’s new way of growing.
To spread the word about your business we would suggest crossposting your TikToks onto Instagram reels. The TikTok knock-off side to Instagram has seen a significant boost in views – how the tables have turned.
