How I Earn $1000 a Month from TikTok



If you're reading this article, I'm sure you've heard of TikTok by now. You probably have many questions like: What's TikTok? How can I earn money from TikTok? Am I too old to use TikTok? And other types of questions. In this article, we will answer all your questions so that you know everything about the app and how to get money from it.


My Personal Story

When I was 17, before my first year of college, there was an app called Vine that took over everyone’s phone screens. The concept behind it was simple: users could create and post 6-second videos for their followers to view. And because of its simplicity, celebrities flocked to it; entertainers such as Snoop Dogg were frequently on Twitter asking people if they were chilling with my dog or something of that nature. For me, though, I saw an opportunity to make money by creating funny vines and posting them. Nowadays, Vine is no longer in existence (RIP), but apps like Instagram have taken its place. One of those apps is called TikTok (formerly Musical.ly). It allows you to record short video clips which are then uploaded to your account, where you can add music and text overlays in order to make your content more entertaining for others who follow you.


The Business Model

Every social media platform needs content creators to build an audience and generate views, likes, and follows. But that’s not how Instagram or Facebook make money. You might get a few dollars here and there through sponsored posts (Facebook), but if you want to make consistent money, you need to follow a couple rules, 1) create great content; 2) drive traffic to your website. On Instagram and YouTube, you can sell ads on your channel page; on Facebook, it’s more difficult because they don’t let users monetize their own profiles.


Installing the App

The first step to making money on TikTok is to install it on your phone and sign up for an account. You can download it in either of two ways: through Google Play or by scanning a QR code. For those who want to go through Google Play, you will need to have Google Wallet installed on your device; if you don’t, there is a button to install it when you click Install on Google Play.

Researching the Audience

If you want to find new niche ideas, you have to first do some in-depth audience research. After all, how can you be sure that people will actually buy your product if you don’t even know who your target market is? Use Google to identify different communities and niche blogs that might fit with your idea. See what they’re talking about—and what they’re saying about similar products or services. For example, say you’re thinking of selling candles for pets; take a look at pet blogs to see whether there are any mentions of candles for pets. Or maybe your idea is for an app that helps users create daily meal plans; look at health sites or food blogs (or both) to see whether anyone has mentioned apps like yours before.
