1) Customize your TikTok sound clip
On TikTok, you promote a snippet not the full song. Most videos made are 10-15 seconds long, so you want to choose the part of your song that is the catchiest, most memorable, or fits the concept you are looking to push.
It's most important to have the snippet start at the exact moment you want your videos to start.
Customizing your snippet needs to be done through your distributor. Or you can upload a video manually. More details below:
Note: Depending on your distributor, they may send a 15, 30, or 60 second clip to TikTok. However, most TikTokers will use only the first 10-15 seconds of your clip.
2) Determine an engaging video concept (recommended)
Having a concept can serve two purposes. First, it creates consistency across your videos and gives you some more control over the content. Second, it gives you a chance to create a trend on TikTok.
Overall Tips for Video Concepts:
Keep your description short (1-3 sentences)
Make sure it’s easy to understand and easy for the creator to do
Be very clear with your words (avoid vague language)
Avoid overly complex or hard to execute ideas (i.e. asking them to change into a specific outfit or travel somewhere in the video)
