There is always a shiny new toy on social media. Thatโ€™s a given. The variable is if as a small business owner you pick the right one to get on board with. Case in point: TikTok. Yes, the app that gives users the chance to create and share funny videos while singing, dancing, or lip-syncing to their favorite tunes. TikTok already has 500 million active users worldwide; 41% of those users are between the ages of 16 and 24!

Do you want some of those eyes on your products, services and words? Gen Z is where you want to be! But if you think being late to the party means a delay on building a following or you are too busy running your business, consider 3rd-party growth strategy tools.

Some use hashtags, bots, or targeted follow/unfollow actions. But take care that you pay attention to TikTokโ€™s terms of service— otherwise, your account will get blocked, you will be shadowbanned, and you wonโ€™t be able to interact with other users, regular and new ones.ย 

To help you out, here are 10 services pre-screened and broken down by Robynne Jones of the Jeff Bullas team: TokUpGrade, TokSocial, AutoTokker, Tok Growth, QuikFlok, Jeffrey, Vire, Ektor.io, Instamber, and TrendGrow.

Why TikTok? Why now? Why for your business? When it comes to daily user time, the current average is a phenomenal 52 minutes per day! And the more time people are spending on this app will translate into a stronger chance that they will see your ads.
