It’s unfortunately not as straight forward as some platforms, however it is achievable. Whether your account is new or not, it’s handy to know how to get verified. Even if you have to wait a little longer before trying. We’ll give you all the best tips and tricks to get started.
Why should you get verified on TikTok?
A blue tick stands for quite a lot on any social platform. Any account with one, stands out from others. People tend to show more interest, even if they don’t know who the person is, because they clearly have a following if they’re verified, right? It could be a celebrity, brand or influencer. Whoever, it is, they’ve had their identity confirmed. That suggests, they’re important enough that someone might want to pretend to be them.
However, you don’t need to be the most famous person ever to exist. You can get verified even if not everyone knows your name. TikTok can help you prove you are who you say you are. It shows you’re real. This could mean big things for any brand, because people are possibly more likely to trust an account with a blue tick. This isn’t to say ones without aren’t trustworthy, but people will know they’ve been properly checked out by TikTok and are who they say they are.
TikTok are more likely to promote a verified account. You’ll probably have more of a chance of seeing your content on the FYP (For You Page). Meaning, more people than ever will see your videos. From there, you’ll get more views, more likes and more followers. It will help your account grow. This is all without you having to change how you operate. You won’t need to start spamming large accounts, asking them to notice you. Instead, you keep going as you are, and the rest will follow. All thanks to your blue tick.
How to get your blue tick on TikTok
There are multiple ways you can find your account verified, but here are a few ideas for you. First you need to find your niche. You can’t start a TikTok account posting about everything and anything, because unfortunately you run the risk of spreading yourself too thin. Find something that represents you, your brand or business. Keep it as simple as possible. If you’re a painter, make it all about the world of painting. Discuss equipment, the best and worst. Talk tactics, inspirations, you name it, mention it.
Keep going. Make videos on the regular. Create a bank of videos ready to be posted. That way, you can get into a routine that your followers will start to remember. You’ll never run out if you keep on top of it. Then, you can be forgotten because you’re always posting. Another idea is to get yourself verified elsewhere first. If you’re verified on Instagram or Facebook, you might stand a better chance on TikTok. That’s because you’ve already proven you are who you say you are. Each platform has its own requirements. Meet them, and you’ll stand out on TikTok.
Get your videos going viral. Of course, this is easier said than done. However, having content on TikTok’s FYP will stand you in with a much better chance of being seen. You could have a huge boost in followers and views if your videos go viral. This will make you stand out to TikTok themselves. After all, they’re the ones you need to impress, right? Create some catchy, stand out videos that are hard to ignore. Tell your story, show who you really are. Most importantly, follow TikTok’s rules. Don’t start buying followers and views because it will flag up to TikTok’s team and will damage your chance of being verified.
