This point speaks for itself. Let’s understand this.
Social media is a place that’s very personal to people.
That’s why they specifically follow certain people, topics and pages.
Why would anyone follow a page having no interest in it?
Would you do that?
Obviously not. That’s because social platforms have become more than a mere escape from the busy life. They’re more like your new work environment. You sell products through social pages, market your brand, and even re-target people.
The point is, people want their social handles to display what they want to see.
If you as a content creator won’t provide it to them, they won’t watch your videos.
How can you do this?
Well, the first step is to identify your niche. What are you good at?
Do you like sharing marketing tips or dancing videos or cooking recipes?
After you find out your zin, ask yourself: What exactly is that people interested in my niche want?
Do they want content creators to explain marketing concepts briefly?
Do they want funny cat videos or 2-minute recipes?
Answering these questions will help you know what you need to create.
You can go to profiles of famous TikTok users or your competitors to see what makes them successful.
Are they using a specific filter, transition while speaking or using a particular sound effect?
There’s a reason they’ve millions of followers, and you need to analyse their content to find out why?
Another way is to follow trending topics around your niche on discussion platforms like Twitter, Reddit, or even on TikTok itself.
Search for the keyword you want to make content on and TikTok will show what videos are getting the most engagement.

Finally, be creative.
Don’t just copy everything you find because then that would risk your credibility as a content creator.
People might even get bored watching the same videos from you and other users because there’s no guarantee they’ll watch your videos first.
Hence, tweak the videos by adding creative elements and be yourself to reflect originality.

Wouldn’t you love behind the scene content of your favourite marvel movie?
