It’s truly astonishing what capacity TikTok attracts an audience. With incredible speed, it became one of the biggest social media platforms in the world. But, while it is very fun to use, the question is if you can make money on TikTok, and how?
In the last decade, we have seen a lot of social media platforms rise and become a massive hit in one minute, and in the next minute when new platforms emergence they go into oblivion. The three biggest platforms are:
First, there was Facebook – a massive hit between 2012 and 2015. Everybody was on this app sharing pictures, opinions, chatting, playing games, and connecting with people around the world.
Then Instagram showed and became a serious opponent and danger to Facebook and blew away the competition. All millennials transferred to Instagram and Facebook became forgotten in the eyes of young people and got an audience of elderly people.
Today, maybe quarantine has a lot to with it but TikTok is with certainty the biggest and most popular platform in the world.
While all other applications have found their place in the game called the market, TikTok continues to delight, attract and grow and the big question is where is the limit and whether it will be just a fast passing trend or will this platform keep its popularity for years.
The Success of TikTok
There has been a lot of discussion and debate among people about the amount of hype that this platform is getting.
If there is one thing that can be said with certainty it is that TikTok is a unique platform and that currently there is no application like it. Therefore, it has no competition. What is the reason for so much success?
Although at first this application was mostly used by a younger audience very quickly people of other ages joined the fun as well. Even if you go to pages like kladenje-hr.com you will find sports results and highlights featured with TikToks.
The main reason why this app is so successful is that it is used by people of all ages. And, there is little to no stigma and being judged by others.
From cute little baby faces, dogs, cats, lions to elders doing the renegade dance and participating in all kinds of TikTok challenges with their families TikTok is truly showing the right meaning of inclusivity.
The second reason why this app is a banger is the unlimited amount of fun. The challenge of showing your “thing” whether it’s dancing, acting, singing, drawing, or comedy sketches within a 60-second video is a lot of fun.
Fame on TikTok
While this platform was just a way to have fun and kill boredom this application was a great hit so you can imagine what happened when the possibility of making real money on this platform opened up. People rushed on it trying to become the next TikTok famous star.
People thought that a nice smile and a couple of lip-syncing videos is a magical potion for success and money. Yes, there is truth to that, there are some people that had a really big amount of algorithmic luck by cashing in their fame but for the majority of people that is not the case.
When you look at the statistics of the most famous people on TikTok you will understand the reality of the situation.
If you take away Charli D’Amelio and Addison Ray, the two most followed girls that blew up mainly because of this app, you will see that the rest of the people on the list were already famous outside TikTok. To them, it is just another way of income and staying up to date with trends and relevancy.
Honestly, the chances of getting famous on TikTok are equal to going to bet-fogadas, a Hungarian platform for Bet365, and finding your favorite team immediately. Actually, the similarities are remarkable, because even if you know what you are doing, such as speaking Hungarian, it is still a process.
Fun and Danger of TikTok
If you’re looking for a fun little activity to do in your spare time TikTok is a great application to download. It’s a platform where you can showcase your talents and interests.
The first association with TikTok is dancing, singing, and lip-syncing but that is far away from being all.
If you have some strong opinions you stand by or questions you’re eager to ask you can do that and rest assured that people alike will follow you and will engage in conversation.
Although there are numerous advantages when it comes to having this app there are also some downsides as well.
Due to its inclusivity, there’s no separation between the younger and older audiences. So if you have a younger sibling or child you should keep an eye on and supervise what your kid is watching. There are a lot of inappropriate things for younger generations that are on display.
Another danger of this app, both for younger and older users is the possibility of addiction. Precisely because it is so interesting and fun in a way it represents a black hole for sucking our time. Always keep in mind how much time you are devoting to this app.
