Native scheduling is on the way!

We’ve got all the deets on boosting your TikTok SEO strategy. HubSpot has explained in an amazing article that we had to share with you that TikTok’s algorithm uses a lot of different signals to put videos in your FYP. This includes video information (e.g. caption keywords, effects, sounds), user interaction, and device settings. To improve your TikTok strategy, check out these top tips:
- Perform a keyword search- keywords are crucial for your video to be seen by the right audience. The text you put on the screen and in the caption will be a huge part in how your video gets seen.
- Create a hashtag strategy- hashtags on TikTok are not the same as Instagram. TikTok hashtags categorise content on the app, so putting a lot of random ones will only confuse the algorithm.
- PRO TIPS: make sure to check out how your keywords are being used in the app, and always include the hashtag of a trend or sound in your caption.
TikTok is rolling out a new Audience Insights tool! The new tool can help you gain super valuable insights into your audience, such as seeing the key demographics of your audience and splitting the details into categories. You can also make an informed content plan by checking out your top hashtags!
