Align Your Personality and Goals

So now that you have some idea of what you want to talk about, try to create a discernable identity and purpose. This will give you the motivation to create content while giving you the clarity to speak about new ideas!

Here is what you should do:

Decide on a Style

The way you speak, your video background, what you wear, and how much you say, all these things will develop your style.

A TikTok Recording SetupConsider this:

  • Will you need a green screen?
  • Will you write your script beforehand or just wing it?
  • Will you physically go to locations when filming about them?
  • Will you follow a one-person monologue style?
  • Will you edit or just go with the flow?

Once you’ve decided how you want to be seen and heard, you can move towards curating the equipment you need.

Creating New Revenue Streams Through TikTok

When you start creating content, you will find several ways avenues to pull money. These include a host of collaborative efforts alongside endorsements and other streams.

For instance, by garnering a big enough audience, you may be in line to receive collaboration requests. Hence, placing a product in your video, featuring it, unboxing it, or even endorsing another service, will rake in a hefty amount per video.

Another way to monetize your TikTok efforts is to start a Patreon. This will allow you to open up a subscription-based exclusive content stream for viewers who pay.

Shout about your brand: create merchandise and begin offering more paywall content. This will give your audience an option to interact with your presence as much as they want.
