Tik Tok, also known as Musical.ly, is one of the fastest-growing social media platforms in the world. If you’re not on this platform yet, you may want to consider adding it to your social media marketing strategy for 2019. Tik Tok is great for artists who want their music to go viral—but don’t have a label or PR team behind them yet. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to get your music on Tik Tok by following these steps:

1. Make your music available on multiple streaming platforms

One of the most important things you can do to expose your music on multiple streaming platforms is to make it available on as many sites as possible. The more places you have your music listed, the better chance you’ll have at getting discovered by Tik Tok users and making money from those streams.

Here are some popular music streaming sites where you should list your songs:

  • Spotify

  • Apple Music

  • Pandora

  • Amazon Music (if available in your country)

2. Get your music into playlists

Playlists are a great way to get your music out there. They’re public, searchable and can be found on streaming platforms and social media, so they’ll expose your music to thousands of new listeners.

To find playlists on Tik Tok, you have to go looking for them. You can do this by doing an image search in Google Images or by searching hashtags like #edm or #popmusic. If you have an existing presence on Tik Tok (for example, if you already have a channel), create playlists around the type of music that you create so people will know what kind of content they’re going to find when they visit your channel. You can add tracks from other artists within these lists as well!

3. Start a Tik Tok account (if you don’t have one already)

Start a Tik Tok account (if you don’t have one already). Make sure that your username, profile picture and bio are up to snuff. You want them to be clear and concise, so people can easily find out what you’re about. Also, make sure your cover photo looks good as this is basically the first impression of your channel.

If you’re not already following a lot of people on Tik Tok then it’s also worth taking some time to start following others in order for them to follow back and support you once they like what they see from your channel.

4. Use the Search Bar to find a Tik Tok song

  • Search for a song that is similar to your own. You may think your music is completely unique and no one else can relate to it, but the truth is that there are many people who will feel exactly how you do about something if they see/hear it in the right way.

  • Look for a song that has already been successful on Tik Tok. If you want to know what kind of songs succeed on TikTok, take note of some of the top videos on their homepage or within a category (like Comedy). See how each artist’s performance style differs from yours; is there anything they’re doing differently?

  • Check out the video itself and determine whether or not this artist seems like someone you’d want to reach out to as well (and vice versa). The more similar your content is, the better chance that someone will come across your profile when searching for theirs!

5. Find a popular video about your song and use it for inspiration

The last step is to find a popular video about your song and use it for inspiration. You’ll be able to see the most common hashtags used with this type of content, which can help you when searching in the app. You may also want to check out the popular videos in your genre or niche on Tik Tok, especially if they’re similar to yours but better executed or have more views than yours does right now.

6. Create an appealing video that reflects the lyrics of your song

Once you’ve done that, the next step is to create a video that reflects the lyrics of your song. You can do this by using one of the most popular videos on Tik Tok, or by using a video that has already been successful on Tik Tok. If you’re going with the latter option, make sure to choose something that won’t cost you any money.

7. Hashtag your post wisely

In order to appeal to the Tik Tok audience, you need to use hashtags that are relevant to the content of your post. It’s also important not to overuse hashtags or use irrelevant ones. You want your videos to show up in as many searches as possible, so if you keep posting content with a specific hashtag and it doesn’t get many views or hearts, then it’s time for a new strategy!

Hashtags will help people discover your content on TikTok and make them more likely share it with their friends. Here are some tips on what kinds of Hashtags should be used:

  • Use relevant hashtags that are popular within the community (e.g., #musicmonday). This will increase visibility in search results and make it easier for people who like this kind of music genre find us;

  • Use tags related only one platform (e
