Five TikTok ideas To Make It Rock!
Up until a few months ago, you might have been forgiven if you’d never heard of TikTok – but not anymore. In fact, unless you’ve been living under a rock, there’s no excuse for not knowing about the video-sharing platform...and increasingly few excuses for not getting involved in the action yourself!
So what’s it all about? How do you go about establishing yourself as a social media sensation? Well before hitting the record button, read on; we’ve picked out a handful of ways to make your clips cracking!
GET ON YOUR DANCING SHOES
Music is at the heart of what makes TikTok, erm, tick; unsurprisingly, then, busting some moves is a surefire way to make a mark! Whether it’s having a go at the latest viral craze, or putting your own slant on things, shaking a leg is one of the easiest ways to get going. You don’t need to be a top-tier mover to catch people’s attention; clever use of the edit functions can make the clip special...even if your moves aren’t!

TAKE THE CHALLENGE
Of course, dances are just the start of things; from staging gummy bear concerts to mocking up holiday photos with everyday items, madcap challenges are some of the best things about TikTok! Checking out what the creative users all over the world can do is plenty of fun – but it’s that much more exciting when you get stuck in yourself! Even celebrities can’t resist joining in on the action...

BRING THE FAMILY
From funny babies and troublesome toddlers to adorable grandparents, loads of the biggest viral videos are family affairs – so roping in the rest of the clan is a clever move! Whether it’s pranking your parents or forming an unlikely comedy troupe, there’s loads of fun to be had with your nearest and dearest; as replacements for a family game night go, this takes some beating!

DRESS TO IMPRESS
Cosplay on TikTok is big business – so if you fancy a go as one of your favourite TV or film characters, you’ve come to the right place! A well-executed group costume is always a winner, and it’s not even limited to humans, either; loads of people take the chance to dress up their pets! Halloween might be months away, but there’s no reason to wait until then to get your costume ready!

It’s good advice in any circumstances – but when it comes to making waves on TikTok, just being yourself is often more than enough to get tons of viewers! Whether you’re caring for tadpoles in your back garden, doing silly voices to entertain your mates, or giving a guided tour of your house, even simple clips of your everyday life could well take off – so grab your mobile and get filming!
