It seems like everyone is on TikTok these days, from big brand to influencers, to side-hustlers and people just looking to view other's content. We've seen people be able to quit their day-jobs to focus on creating content for TikTok or people able to quit their day-jobs to build their own businesses thanks TikTok viewership.
But can TikTok really pay? The answer is yes, and here's how to make money on TikTok in 3 different ways.
1) TikTok Creator Fund pays 2 to 4 cents per 1,000 views
TikTok creators can make money if they are a part of the TikTok Creator fund. To join, you must have a TikTok pro account, which is an easy switch to make from a TikTok personal account. You'll also need to have at least 10,000 followers. You need to have received a minimum 100,000 views in the last 30 days. Once you're a member of the Creator Fund, you can earn roughly 2-4 cents per 1,000 views. Be aware that all of your content will need to adhere to TikTok's community guidelines and terms of service.
2) Partner with a Brand for Sponsored Videos
Another way to make money on TikTok is to partner with a brand for sponsored videos. It's important to partner with brands you trust and use for authentic relationships with your viewers. This is a great option if you have a large following of engaged, excited viewers. Sponsorships might include a brand paying you to make a video about a product of theirs you use and love, or they may give you the product for free in exchange for making a video about it. For example, if you use a certain type of equipment for your business, you may be able to partner with that brand to feature it in your TikTok videos.
3) Advertise your Products
Here's how to make money on TikTok that is a key element for all small businesses: show what you know! Advertising your products on TikTok is a great way to increase traffic to your website and possibly increase sales, especially if you aren't eligible for the TikTok creator fund yet. Be sure to highlight what makes your company unique, and include your website link in your bio.
