Five strategies for monetizing your TikTok channel

1. Be genuine

It would be this if there were a moral to the great book on social media. Though it may be hard to believe in today’s heavily censored environment, internet consumers still value true information.

Keep doing what makes you happy, whether that’s joining a dance craze or displaying your crocheted frogs. It’s the best bet if you want to attract loyal fans and, eventually, make actual money.

2. Be open and honest

This is a necessary result of genuineness. It’s best to err on the side of caution when in doubt, especially given the haziness of the regulations around the publication of sponsored material and the disclosure of free items received.

Remember to use the #Ad disclosure automatically added to your sponsored content when you turn it on in TikTok.

3. Take inspiration from your favorite creators.

You may just start scrolling if you don’t know where to begin. Some of your favorite content makers are probably monetizing their TikTok channels. Investigate their brand partnerships, promotional T-shirts, and alphabet soup Venmo spelling, and see if any of it may inspire you to improve your tactics.

4. Maintain your regular content.

Your followers will unsubscribe if all of your TikToks are advertisements or promotions. Maintain your composure.

5. Keep going
